A Cost-Performance Summary of Air Pollution Control Equipment Used for Rule 66 Compliance 670812
The parameters of time, temperature, and turbulence affect the efficiency of incinerators in the control of organic solvent emissions from stationary equipment. Fuel costs are a problem, however, on which more data are needed. For example, for a large incinerator with no heat recovery features, the installed cost may be as low as $1.75/cfm for a 23,000 cfm unit with a fuel cost as low as $23/hr. A small unit without heat recovery but using no external combustion air might cost $11/cfm.
The cost of equipment and operation is directly proportional to the exhaust volume to be handled.
