The design manual provides a collection and an interpretation of information and data that may be used by the solid waste industry for the purpose of designing size reduction equipment for processing municipal solid waste. Inasmuch as the manual is intended for all those involved with solid waste processing, equipment design is addressed in a broad sense from a number of different viewpoints in order to accommodate the needs of the diverse audience. Among the topics discussed in detail in the manual are the following: 1) basic principles and governing parameters; 2) types of refuse size reduction equipment; 3) operation and performance characteristics; 4) performance evaluation; 5) costs; 6) maintenance; 7) safety; and 8) equipment selection and specification. The design manual also serves as a reference work on size reduction for the industry in that the majority of work published in the field of solid waste size reduction has been compiled and referenced in one volume.
