Thermal Oxidiser and Recuperator Heat and Mass Balance
A thermal oxidiser typically consists of a burner system which creates a high-temperature environment in a chamber into which a waste stream is injected to oxidise the hazardous waste stream. Due to the high temperatures required to perform the chemical destruction, recuperators are often used to recover as much of the waste stream heat as possible. In this case, the recuperator used is a steam generator. A model was developed in Flownex® using previously developed compound components to simplify certain tasks such as gas composition specification and gas property analysis. The model uses an iterative approach to establish the heat and mass balance of the entire system by adjusting the fuel flow, the air flow and the water flow in succession until the desired oxygen levels and steam quality are obtained.
