Abstract : Heat recovery incinerators (HRIs) can be grouped into four categories: starved-air modular, rotary kiln, excess-air grate, and fluidized bed combustion. State-of-the-art HRI technology was has been reviewed to update the military knowledge base. Findings represent data collected from approximately 30 manufacturers through literature review, direct survey work, and information exchange with other facilities investigating this area. The technologies and product available are compared and evaluated for potential application at military installations. It was found that HRI equipment in the small sizes of interest to the Army is being marketed for techniques other than starved-air. The Army traditionally has chosen starved-air units because, in system sizes below 50 TPD, they required no additional equipment for pollution control.
