Incinerators

Combustion in incinerators occurs under controlled conditions within the stack. Incinerators are not affected by wind or other weather conditions, and they generally provide more efficient combustion, compared to open-air flaring.

Although some incinerators are actually enclosed flares, a true incinerator has controls to maintain a specific air-to-fuel ratio, a refractory lining and a minimum residence time, while an enclosed flare is merely protected from outside weather. The most efficient combustion is provided by a true incinerator. Tipycal applications: waste gas and liquids, synthesis gas or tail gas.
