Wilson Walton Develops New Marine Incinerator —Literature Available

Wilson Walton International SAF, at the request of French shipyards, has developed a special version of the Incymar Sen- ior marine incineration unit suitable for use aboard passenger vessels and ferries. The special unit, developed in conjunction with the Pillard Group, is designed for the consumption of waste g e n e r a t e d by passenger complements of from 500-2,500 persons, which can amount to several tons per day, at a rate of 500 kilograms per hour.

In its passenger vessel configuration the Incymar Senior is made up as a modular system incorporating a loading hopper and conveyor belt. Drying and combustion take place on a grate system extending the whole length of the furnace, sloped at an angle of 10 degrees and made of elements actuated by air cylinders.

The 27 grate elements according to a punched tape program undulate so as to propel the waste along the slope, at the same time breaking up the garbage and airing it to promote good combustion.

Combustion air is blown through the grates at high pressure and so limits the fall of ash below the grates, the inclined roof ensuring heat radiates on to the waste.
