 en Design and Fabrication of a Domestic Incinerator


A domestic incinerator which can be used to dispose waste was designed, successfully constructed and tested. A simple scrubber was devised and coupled to the equipment for the removal of waste gases and harmful dust emissions. Firing was achieved with waste oil which can be obtained from local automobile workshops and service stations. Thus the incineratorserves the purpose of dealing with household wastes as well as liquid wastes generated by the increasing number of automobile workshops in our local environment. Although the body of the system experienced a little of heat loss, the result showed that the system is preferable to open air burning and the incinerator performed with an efficiency of 72.1%.It could be very useful for domestic application in urban and rural settlements, especially in our homes where paper and other nontoxic solid wastes are generated.
