Industrial Furnace Industry Statistics

The growing Industrial Furnace Industry is big business both in manufacturing and in international trade. The newly released 2014 industry report listed $3 billion USD in total revenue. The gross profit total was reported at 26.21% with an import value of $.7 billion USD from 60 different countries.

The industrial furnace industry also exported an estimated $.9 billion USD worth of products and other merchandise to 149 countries last year.

Overall, if you add in the 2014 annual import value and subtract the export value, the industrial furnace industry commands a total domestic demand and value of $2.8 billion USD.
These findings come from a recent report on the Industrial Furnace Industry conducted by Research and Markets Ltd. Below is their report summary which includes a link to the full report if you are interested.

Cleaning an Oil Spill with a Liquid Waste Incinerator?

Cleaning up an oil spill is a complicated venture. While there are several methods currently being utilized to remove the oil and cleaning up the area, there has never been a cleanup that has been 100% successful.

One of the largest oil spills occurred earlier this year in Santa Barbara spill. These spills are highly problematic and the challenges on a cleanup are just as numerous. Cleanup efforts are highly expensive. Oil companies must pay to remove the oil, clean the environment, compensate individuals affected, and then dispose of the dirty oil. The wildlife and ecosystems affected can suffer irreparable damage. Other challenges include the lost use of waterways that are closed off for cleaning. For example, it took Exxon 4 summers and hundreds of millions of dollars to clean up their 2010 oil spill.

The most common methods of clean up include physical barriers called booms, burning the oil off of the top of the water (Situ Burning) or skimming the oil off of the water top. Each of these methods requires thousands of workers, hundreds of millions of dollars and millions of hours to complete and is not 100% effective. What if there was a better and more effective way to collect and dispose of the unwanted oil? One possible solution could be to improve oil spill cleanup is to employ a liquid waste incinerator.

A liquid waste incinerator works by pumping the liquid waste into the unit which vaporizes the waste. This process is known as atomizing. The atomized waste vapor is then moved into a furnace section where it is super-heated until the vapor is completely burned off. A liquid waste incinerator leaves no residue or waste to be disposed of. Contaminated water can easily be pumped into the liquid waste incinerator system right off of the water and evaporated in a matter of seconds.

With each new environmental challenge that is presented, new answers and more efficient answers are discovered every day. As researchers search for more efficient solutions, could a liquid waste incinerator be the next big revelation in the oil spill world?
