Cremulators are machines that resemble a large, industrial blender or grinder. They contain rotating blades or paddles designed to break down bone fragments with a gentle grinding action.
Before the deceased's remains are processed through a cremulator, metal objects that may have survived the cremation process are removed. This can include metal from medical implants like joint replacements, dental fillings, or other items.
The operation of the cremulator is performed with care and respect for the deceased and in accordance with the regulations and standards of the cremation industry.
