Incinerator volume determines the residence time for a given flow rate. Residence time, combined with thermal destruction temperature, ensures compliance with destruction and removal efficiency (DRE) regulations. Sufficient residence time must be allowed to achieve DREs, as well as to ensure conversion to desirable incinerator products.
Thermal destruction systems, which operate at slightly positive elevated pressures, require nonleaking incinerators. Pressurized systems require high-temperature seals for trouble-free operation.
