MAXIMIZING INCINERATION RATES IN MULTIPLE HEARTH FURNACES
Abstract:Changes in biosolids conditioning, from thermal to polymer, caused the multiple hearth furnaces to drop the incineration capacities by 66%. The Incinerators designed to autogenously incinerate 26 dry tons a day of biosolids at 35% solids were incinerating 8 dry tons of biosolids at 18% solids.
The Washington Suburban Sanitary Commission (WSSC) embarked on a program to maximize the incineration rates in the multiple hearth furnaces (MHF). This paper summarizes some of these modifications.
