Abstract:

This report describes test and evaluation of the two-tonhr heat recovery incinerator HRI facility located at Mayport Naval Station, FL, carried out during November and December 1980. The tests included 1 Solid Waste characterization, heating value, and ultimate analysis, 2 Ash moisture, combustibles, and heating values of both bottom and cyclone ashes Extraction Procedure toxicity tests on leachates from both bottom and cyclone ashes trace metals in cyclone particulates, 3 Stack Emissions particulates quantity and size distribution, chlorides, oxygen, carbon dioxide, carbon monoxide, and trace elements, and 4 Heat and Mass Balance all measurements required to carry out complete heat and mass balance calculations over the test period. The overall thermal efficiency of the HRI facility while operating at approximately 1.0 tonhr was found to be 49 when the primary Btu equivalent of the electrical energy consumed during the test program was included.
