What is a good incinerator? Is your decision based on performance or budget or both?
Price, Performance, and Design of Incinerators
Let’s look at the price, performance, and design of incinerators. Firelake Manufacturing designs and builds various incinerators that have many options available. Basic incinerator design features may include refractory linings, grates, a secondary burn chamber, or temperature control. Refractory lining protects the outer steel shell, retains heat inside and thus saves energy. Linings allow an incinerator to have a longer life, and for safety, they have cooler external surfaces. Hard linings will resist wear and degeneration from chemicals in wastes. Grates allow the load to rest above the flame exposing 100% of the surface area to heat allowing a faster burn time and the ability to destroy grease as it forms and drops. Incinerators without grates are less expensive and will work in a different way. The load is only attacked from the top surface and may tend to pool grease that ignites mid-burn and create smoke or backpressure for a brief time. Secondary burn chambers are designed to further clean the flue gas as it exits the lower chamber. A secondary chamber has a burner/fan thus adding expense beyond a basic single chamber incineration unit. Temperature control monitors the temperature in a chamber and reduces fuel flow to moderate maximum temperature and save fuel. Simpler incinerators without temperature control are less expensive. They operate by an on-off timer that runs the burners the full burn cycle.
