Working of Municipal Waste Incinerator and its 5 Advantages

Incineration is a process of managing waste by burning it in the presence of oxygen. Incinerators are best for Municipal organisations to build a long term action plan for waste management. Thus, to support municipal corporations, Precitech manufactures and supplies Municipal Waste Incinerator in Hyderabad and India. 

Dumping heaps of waste can never be a viable solution because landfills are known for harmful toxins, odour and water supply contamination.

Environmental Issues with Landfills

When we follow the norms of zero-waste, we often choose sustainable products that have a reusable substitute. But, it is nearly impossible to choose an alternative for every commodity. So, to some extent, there will be waste which needs to be managed. And, landfills cannot solve the issue.

Landfills are a major source of pollution because: 

  1. Waste seeps into local land and water bodies and releases toxins. As a result, harmful metals like arsenic, lead, and mercury end up in the environment. 
  2. There is leachate formation in landfills. It’s a liquid which forms up when waste breaks down. Leachate contains harmful chemicals such as methane, acids, and aldehydes. 
  3. The release of greenhouse gases leads to the greenhouse effect.

Incinerators do not just burn the waste. It follows a framework by the Central Pollution Control Board (CPCB), India. The Indian Ministry of New and Renewable energy promotes multiple technology options to handle the waste. Incineration is one of the options for waste-to-energy conversions.

Working of Municipal Waste Incinerator

Precitech’s incinerator is stationary and consists of — a primary chamber, secondary chamber, dust collector, heat recovery system, smoke washer, ID fan, FD fan, chimney, and an auto control system. The incinerators work on electricity. However, we can customise it according to your requirements. The incinerator can handle 1kg/hr to 4tons/hr of waste.   

All the waste is collected at the “throat” at one grate end. From there, the waste reaches the descending grate. There is a supply of primary air from the bottom of the grate. The primary air is essential for combustion. Further, nozzles supply the secondary air. 

Excess oxygen is the key requirement in the burning process. There are auxiliary burners to increase the temperature and enhance combustion. A well-designed scrubber prevents fly ash from reaching the environment. There is an ash pit at the end from where one can collect waste ash.

Precitech offers a range of burners. Read more about them here.
