The thermal characteristics of energy recovery incinerators are examined, both parametrically and, to the extent possible, by direct comparison. A mathematic model is employed, using a computer program to solve the governing equations. Three energy recovery configurations are considered: a water tube heat exchanger downstream from the combustion chambers, waterwalls, and a combination of the two. Results show the advantages of combining water walls and a convection boiler.
