Selection of heating element for Napkin Incinerator: A simulation approach using COMSOL Multiphysics

Indumathi.C Nivetha, K. Shankar


The incinerators are basically the burners invented for clearing the unwanted and hazardous wastes. The incinerator which is purported here is Napkin Incinerator. This incinerator chiefly destroys the blood wetted sanitary napkins, gauzes and cotton wastes. This work aims to opt the appropriate heating material for a specific dimension of heating chamber of incinerator. The analysis was done in COMSOL Multiphysics Simulation Environment. The obtained results show that Kanthal 1700 would perform well for better efficiency of the incinerator.
