This new book, published by INCINERATOR CONSULTANTS INCORPORATED (ISBN 0-96217740-7, 530 pages, hardbound) is an update of Mr. Brunner’s previous incineration systems texts. It is a comprehensive handbook which integrates information on equipment, operating procedures, system calculations and regulatory standards for both the technical and non-technical reader. The book includes a disk with computer programs which develop waste disposal characteristics for a single chamber incinerator. These programs, one in American and one in metric units, accept waste feed rate and heat content, and develop chamber temperature for a particular excess air value, provide required air flow and calculates flue gas constituents, oxygen fraction, and other parameters. The latest USEPA municipal solid waste and sewage sludge incinerator regulations are also included in this text.
