Technical and Environmental Aspects of Shipboard Incinerators Design

The main aim of this article is to present and to clarify some details of shipboard incinerators and to show how to satisfy their basic design requirements. In this sense, technical and ecological aspects for the design and construction of shipboard incinerators are described. In scope of this, operating requirements are discussed that have to be satisfied in order to accomplish the efficient thermal destruction of wastes. Incinerators considered are those intended for thermal destruction of garbage and other shipboard wastes generated during the ship’s normal service, with capacities up to 1500 kW and without the flue gas heat recovery. Calculations are presented that are derived for the case of a typical ship’s waste classification according to IIA (Incinerator Institute of America). Results of a case calculation for the incinerator capacity of 80 kg/h of liquid and solid ship’s waste are presented, too.
