Combustion Chambers

Many hazardous wastes are incinerated in industrial boilers and furnaces. However, hazardous waste combustion in boilers is limited by the amount of chlorine in the waste stream, because most industrial boilers do not use scrubbers for hydrogen chloride.

The physical form of the waste and its ash content determine the type of combustion chamber selected. Table 11.14.3 provides selection considerations for the four major combustion chamber designs as a function of different forms of waste (EPA 1981; Dempsey & Oppelt 1993). Incinerator systems derive their names from the types of combustion chambers used.
