Tale of Two Bio Cremation Machines|YourFuneralGuy

12 May

Here is a tale of two Bio Cremation Machines in pictures, One is being promoted by Matthews International, another is being promoted by CycledLife. Interestingly the Mathews Machine is  priced at nearly  five times that of cycledlife.  The Cycledlife machine will undergo further testing and demontration in June. Although  Matthews International Bio Cremation Resomation Machine is going in St. Petersburg,Florida, not much has been revealed as to the specifics, other than the Anderson- McQueen  Funeral Home location.

Here  is a picture of the traditional Resomation Bio cremation Machine:

    The CycledLife water & alkali disposition systems have a 6’x8′ footprint, compared to a 20’x30′ footprint for the Resomation(R) system. To clarify, we do not refer to our systems as being “water resolution” systems, this name is being used by BioSAFE. We use a generic descriptor for our systems: water & alkali disposition systems. Funeral directors may refer to the process as a water & alkali disposition. We promise not to trademark the term: water & alkali disposition, so everyone can make use of the term. The use of clever names for this simple process should be avoided when dealing with families.

    Thanks for your helpful comment, what the funeral industry is demanding is data on this process on specific machines. The sooner the Data is out, the faster the process is going to be implemented. The Traditional Funeral Industry sees this as ten years away. With solid numbers and demonstrations, progressive funeral directors and investors want to take this to the general public as quickly as possible. Note: The Resomation (R) machine to be put in at the Anderson-Mcqueen Funeral Home Location in St. Petersburg Florida appears to be a demonstration facility.

    Actually, the Bio Cremation machine going to St. Pete will serve as a full service facility for those requesting green cremations. It should be installed soon and we are looking forward to seeing it go out.

    Thank you for your comment, we will be following the situation closely to see who installs the first working bio cremation machine in the Funeral Industry in the United States.
