How does an MSW furnace work?

The amount of garbage on our planet is growing exponentially or even faster, so the problem of proper waste disposal is especially acute. Municipal solid waste not only poisons the environment, but also occupies vast territories, which only expand over time, and without the right approach to solving the issue, the situation will become even more difficult. A solid waste incinerator is an efficient and safe option.

So how are these furnaces different from conventional landfill burning?

Burning garbage directly in landfills without special equipment is long, unsafe and very harmful to the atmosphere, because all combustion products are immediately released into the air masses, together with evaporating moisture, they settle in the clouds and spread for many kilometers from the combustion epicenter. That is why experts strongly recommend buying a solid waste incinerator for such purposes.

The whole secret is in the principle of operation of such equipment: combustion takes place in a closed case, where toxic substances are destroyed under the influence of high temperatures. Prior to loading into the kiln, MSW is mixed with sand in order to obtain the most homogeneous mixture, as well as to prevent exceeding temperature maxima and incomplete burning of the garbage. The only feature of the operation of such equipment is the different combustion temperatures of various types of garbage. MSW must be sorted to achieve maximum efficiency of use.
