Incineration process – thermal oxidation
Furnaces of different capacities for waste treatment by thermal oxidation. Equipped with gas depuration equipment.
Incineration develops at high temperatures, being a thermal destruction process, in presence of oxygen converts waste to gas and ash.
This type of treatment is for a purpose: waste destruction accompanied by a significant reduction in mass and volume of the same, power generation and incorporation of materials for industrial products.
It should also be noted that the incineration also produces gaseous emissions that may contain particles, acid gases and other substances whose formation depends on the type of waste being incinerated.
The three factors that determine the efficiency of incineration are: temperature, time, turbulence.
The higher the incineration temperature, the greater the possibility that gases of combustion decomposes and not leaving compounds that could present toxic characteristics.
The degree of turbulence ensures the mixture of between waste air and fuel. The higher the same, the higher the speed of destruction of compounds in the incinerator.
Finally, availability of oxygen is an important factor since it will ensure the oxidation of organic compounds as well as no formation of byproducts that may be toxic.
According to international reference, the control parameters of incineration must be located:
Temperatures between 900 and 1100 ° C for the destruction of hydrocarbons and 1100 to 1200 ° C for the removal of halogenated compounds. So it required by European regulations.
The endurance time of the gases must be at least 2 seconds.
Excess air of 100% of the stoichiometric requirements attending the temperature requirements to achieve.
Applying our know-how, we indicate the type of incinerator you need, according to the production of steam and pressure you need. We get high performance in their teams, considerable energy savings and reduce emissions into the atmosphere, being so friendly as possible to the environment.
