Incineration is a waste treatment process that involves the combustion of substances contained in waste materials. Industrial plants for waste incineration are commonly referred to as waste-to-energy facilities. Incineration and other high-temperature waste treatment systems are described as “thermal treatment”. Incineration forms an important part of a comprehensive waste management strategy. It reduces the volume of material sent to landfill, facilitates the recovery and reuse of metals and other materials, and provides heat for conversion into electricity in waste to energy plants.
When building an incinerator, the refractory chamber is one of the most important elements to consider. It is where you load and burn your waste. An effective and insulated refractory can save you thousands of cash each year in fuel alone. It is important that the firebricks of the primary combustion chamber are sealed with fireclay or fire cement to the top plate to prevent the burning gases or flames being drawn up the primary combustion chamber and directly into the chimney.
The bricks in the combustion area and in the secondary combustion chamber/flue will get very hot during operation. Common building bricks will disintegrate if used in these areas, therefore high alumina bricks with temperatures of 1600-1750 degrees are used.
The mortar is composed of high alumina refractory cement and refractory granulates.
