The '''Aperture Science Emergency Intelligence Incinerator''' is an equipment incinerator used within the Aperture Science Aperture Science Center|Enrichment Center.

*The Emergency Intelligence Incinerator is first seen in Test Chamber 17 when Chell is required to "euthanize" her Aperture Science Weighted Storage Cube|Weighted Companion Cube.

*The Emergency Intelligence Incinerator works via a small button pedestal, which opens an iris over the top of the incinerator (a reference to the FileAperture Science grey.svg|Aperture Science logo). The flame symbol and the word "CAUTION" are inscribed around its rim. The incinerator may be related to the Diversity Furnace.

*Another incinerator is featured in GLaDOS' chamber; Chell uses it to destroy all four of GLaDOS' Aperture Science Personality Construct|Personality Cores.

*It should be noted that the Intelligence Incinerator is only active when the iris is open; the flames stop after the iris closes.

*Since, according to GLaDOS, all Aperture Science technologies remain operational at up to 4000 degrees WikipediaKelvin|Kelvin, the Emergency Intelligence Incinerator has to be at a higher temperature than that in order to actually incinerate their devices, as 4000 degrees Kelvin is equivalent to 6740 degrees Fahrenheit (3727 degrees Celsius).

===''Portal 2''===
*The incinerator in ''Portal 2'' is first seen in GLaDOS' ruined chamber. Shortly after GLaDOS is reawakened, she drops Chell into it in order to retrieve the dual Aperture Science Handheld Portal Device|Portal Device. This is also where it is revealed that the emergency intelligence incinerators lead down to a main incinerator chamber, far down in the Aperture Science facilities. Due to the speed at which things seem to be incinerated in ''Portal'', portal technology could be used in the incinerators.

*The Emergency Intelligence Incinerator is seen once again in the game's fifth chapter, within the facility's Aperture Science Sentry Turret|turret production lines. It is used to incinerate any defective turrets that failed its manufacturing process in basing off of the facility's template for the turrets.

*In the game, the Aperture Science Personality Construct Core|Fact Sphere reports (correctly) that "tungsten has the highest melting point of any metal at 3,410 degrees Celsius." This calls into question what kind of material that Aperture technology is made of, or how long they can survive 4000 Kelvin (3727 degrees Celsius).
