Refractory Materials and Systems for Incineration Processes

D. A. Jarvis


Volume 3, Issue 2, Pages 87 - 90


There is a urgent and growing need for the recycling or disposal of by-products and waste of many varied types from both domestic and industrial sources. One such solution is incineration. When carried out efficiently it is safe and cost effective but there is still considerable resistance to this technology from many sources since not all incinerators are as efficient as they should be. One of the keys to the proper operation of all of these units is the careful choice and installation of the appropriate refractories in each zone of the lining. Operating conditions in several of the many varied designs are considered and refractories are suggested to resist the particular conditions encountered in them. Several examples of recent refractory problems which have arisen are highlighted along with the solution in each case.
