The Static Kiln is a hot detonation chamber developed by Dynasafe AB to be used for destruction of conventional and chemical munitions. The destruction of munitions is carried out at high temperature under gas-tight condition. The Static Kiln has been used for destruction of small arms ammunition; antipersonnel mines; incendiary munitions; white phosphorus; smoke munitions; stockpile and nonstockpile as well as chemical munitions.

An overview will be given in the presentation of the design principles of the equipment; the destruction process; examples of the remains of the munitions; and experience and lessons learned from many years of operation of different Static Kilns.
