Abstract:

An evaluation showed the incenerator to be capable of reducing these materials to a fine ash. The wastefuel ratio averaged 1.49 lb of human wastelb of fuel, 1.47 lb of garbagelb. of fuel, and 0.37 lbof rubbishlb of fuel. Of the total fuel consumption, 22 was used to destroy odors, and 78 was used for incineration. The efficiency of the incinerator was reduced when using combustible materials because of the inadequate supply of air to the combustion chamber. The incinerator was not recommended for use in the field.
