Baker Furnace of Brea, Calif., shipped a custom waste-incineration system with a maximum temperature rating of 1900°F to a pollution-control company. The incinerator will be used to burn off waste after a 12-hour process. The system is designed with three gasification chambers that can burn 10 tons of waste a day per chamber. It is being installed in the Republic of the Marshall Islands in the Pacific Ocean.
The system is designed to withstand the harsh salt environment by using a special epoxy paint on the exterior. The harsh environment had to be considered on the selection on all components, including diesel-firing burners, hydraulics and conduit runs. The system also includes a high-temperature blast gate.
