Abstract : This report documents a theoretical thermal evaluation of several energy recovery incinerators. Both parametric examination and, to the extent possible, direct comparison are included. The procedure followed is to model the incinerator mathematically, use a computer program to solve the governing equations, and apply this model to make the evaluations. The incinerators studied are the smaller, about 24-tpd devices. Energy recovery is in the form of steam. Three configurations are considered: a water tube heat exchanger downstream from the combustion chambers; waterwalls; and a combination of the two. Both substoichiometric and excess air operation are evaluated. Results show the advantages of a configuration with both waterwalls and a convection boiler.
