Selection of Incinerator Furnaces

  • Alfons Buekens
Part of the SpringerBriefs in Applied Sciences and Technology book series (BRIEFSAPPLSCIENCES)


The selection of a particular type of furnace mainly depends not only on the type(s) of waste to be incinerated (which also determines the possible feeding methods), but also on numerous other factors, such as plant capacity, the operating schedule required, heat recovery, the amount of ash to be handled, and also its physicochemical nature and softening point, etc.
