N e w High-Efficiency Incinerators Introduced By H a m w o r t h y Offer Solution To On-Board Waste

—Free Literature Available— Hamworthy Engineering has been a leading worldwide marine equipment manfacturer for over 75 years.

With its own offices worldwide, Hamworthy is able to provide shipowners the assurance of the availability of spare parts and service for their equipment. Besides compressors and pumps, Hamworthy offers an extensive line of pollution abatement equipment.

One such product is the Hamworthy Neptune Incinerator. With the ratification and implementation of Annex V of MARPOL 73/78, a greater importance has been placed on the disposal of waste generated aboard ship.

Hamworthy recognized the waste problem and developed and designed the Neptune 20R and 40R incinerators to provide a solution.

Both sizes of incinerator are of the "cyclone" type, with high rates of combustion limiting the daily operating time to a minimum. The model 20R has been designed to consume solid waste only, while the 40R has the ability to burn liquid and solid wastes. Hamworthy reports that both models have fully automatic control systems and are constructed to fulfill the safety requirements of the classification societies.

Both Neptune models are especially designed for the retrofit market and can also be supplied as a "fiat-pack" for installation at a selected space on board ships.

Some of the features of the Neptune incinerators include: a conveniently located control panel for easy operation; an auxiliary burner that has a capacity of 665 MJ/h when burning light oil with a high and low fire capability of 20.5 liters and 4.5 liters per hour, respectively; a horizontal flue that incorporates an air diluter; a garbage door that provides easy access to the combustion chamber; an ash removal door; combustion air inlets; and an induced draft fan supplied for customer installation adjacent to the incinerator.
