Overfired air jets have been used in coal stokers to induce turbulence for increased combustion efficiency and reduced emissions of combustible pollutants such as CO, H2, hydrocarbons, and soot. A mixing system of this type was installed in an existing municipal incinerator. Tests were conducted to determine the effects of and design criteria for mixing jets. Measurements were made in the furnace breech, directly over the refuse bed, and in the furnace stack. Generalized models were developed to describe bed burning, furnace flow behavior, and overfire mixing phenomena. Design guidelines were developed for operating variables, such as underfire air distribution and feed rate, and design features, such as mixing jet placement and furnace configuration. Jets were shown to be effective in reducing combustible emissions through temperature control. They were only marginally effective in inducing increased turbulence within the furnace. Analysis of test results and rationale for the conclusions drawn are discussed thoroughly.
