Baker Furnace announced the shipment of a custom waste incineration system to a pollution control company. These incinerators will be used to burn off waste after a 12-hour process. The system is designed with three gasification chambers that can burn 10 tons of waste a day per chamber. The waste incinerator is being installed in the Republic of the Marshall Islands in the Pacific Ocean.
The maximum temperature rating of the waste incineration system is 1900°F. The proximity to the ocean causes an issue to salt contamination. The system is designed to withstand the harsh salt environment by using a special epoxy paint on the exterior. The harsh environment had to be considered on the selection on all components including but not limited to, diesel firing burners, hydraulics, and conduit runs.
“Pollution control equipment has become very popular in recent years. The islands of the Pacific have limited space to store waste and must find ways to dispose of it in a way that are safe for the environment.” – Sergio Luevano, General Manager.
Unique features of this waste incineration system include:
- Diesel fired burners
- Two-layer castable
- High-temperature blast gate
- Max temperature 1900°F, Normal operating 1800°F
