Incinerators shipped to Marshall Islands

BREA, Calif. – Baker Furnace has shipped a custom waste incineration system to a pollution control company in the Republic of the Marshall Islands in the Pacific Ocean.

These incinerators will be used to burn off waste after a 12-hour process. The system is designed with three gasification chambers that can burn 10 tons of waste a day per chamber. The maximum temperature rating of the waste incineration system is 1,900°F.

The proximity to the ocean causes an issue with salt contamination. The system is designed to withstand the harsh salt environment by using a special epoxy paint on the exterior. The harsh environment had to be considered on the selection on all components including, but not limited to, diesel firing burners, hydraulics, and conduit runs.

“Pollution control equipment has become very popular in recent years,” said Baker Furnace’s general manager Sergio Luevano. “The islands of the Pacific have limited space to store waste and must find ways to dispose of it in a way that are safe for the environment.”
