What happens after the cremation process is complete?

After the cremation process, all organic bone fragments, which are very brittle, as well as non-consumed metal items are "swept" into the front of the cremation chamber and into a stainless steel cooling pan. All non-consumed items, like metal from clothing, hip joints, and bridge work, are separated from the cremated remains.

This separation is accomplished through visual inspection as well as by using a strong magnet for smaller and minute metallic objects. At the conclusion of the cremation process, items such as dental gold and silver are non-recoverable and are commingled with the cremated remains.

Remaining bone fragments are then processed in a machine to a consistent size and placed into a temporary or permanent urn, selected by the family.
