Asked&Answered: Water-Cooled Wear Zones: Boiler Advantages

water cooled zones

Q. What purpose do water-cooled wear zones serve in waste-to-energy boilers?

A: Water-cooled zones reduce the area of uncooled refractory in the furnace of WtE boilers. This reduces maintenance costs by reducing refractory volume, adds stability, and can increase plant output.
