SECONDARY CHAMBER

A major and crucial phase of the incineration process is to ensure that any emissions released into the atmosphere via the chimney are perfectly clean and hazard-free as required in compliance with relevant emissions regulations such as the EU Industrial Emissions Directive 2010/75/EC.

Consequently the secondary chambers of our incinerator range are designed to treat all the combustion gases from the primary chamber in order to ensure that they effectively conform to these rigorous environmental regulations.

Our designers are fully conversant with all these requirements and where necessary the design and volume of the secondary chamber will be established by the development of a computer Fluid Dynamic Model using Phoenics 2008 combustion and chemical reaction software.

Manufactured as a refractory lined steel structure, to match the primary chamber, additional combustion air is added at the inlet of the secondary chamber via a series of nozzles. Additional heat, when required, is also provided by an afterburner. Internal baffles and the location of the air jets will induce turbulence into the gases promoting intimate mixing of the combustion products, heat and combustion air.

The gases will reside in these conditions for periods in excess of 2 seconds, when complying with the EU Industrial Emissions Directive 2010/75/EC and other stringent legislation.

The result of this combustion is the efficient reduction of both the partial combustion products (carbon monoxide) and contaminant combustion products (Nitrogen Oxides and Volatile Organic Compounds).

Protecting the environment and ensuring compliancy with all the relevant regulations and standards is an important aspect of our service.
