Is an Air Burner the same as a Containerized Incinerator?
Air Curtain Burners (ACBs) and containerized incinerators each have their own particular operating objective:
- A containerized incinerator is a machine that uses a fuel source to create heat and burns the waste at a high temperature reducing it to bottom ash.
- An air curtain burner is a machine that reduces smoke, aka particulate matter while burning waste materials. Since the waste material is the fuel source, the burn is natural—in other words, the air curtain burner (ACB) requires no external secondary fuel source to create the heat and reduce the waste to ash.
Both machines eliminate waste. But the containerized incinerator relies on a secondary fuel source to generate heat and burn the waste. In contrast, ACB generates heat by trapping trap smoke and particulates to reduce the waste to ash.
Let’s take a more in-depth look.
Purchasing Air Burners Machines Made Simple for All Government Buyers
We know you must spend your agency's money fairly and wisely. Should that not also include saving time, money, and red tape by doing away with the cumbersome bid process?
The BurnBoss® from Air Burners – The Best Tool for Small Scale Urban Wildland Interface Fuels Management
Forest Fires are part of Nature’s tools to maintain a healthy forest and the fires are even a necessity for certain species of trees to reproduce. They cannot be eliminated, but their devastating effects on the population can be mitigated or even eliminated. We must recognize that forest fires or bushfires did not get closer to people, rather people moved closer to where the wildfires occur.
Air Curtain FireBoxes: The Perfect Tool for Woody Waterborne Debris Elimination
Hazardous Debris removal from waterways and shorelines poses an unusual challenge because accessibility is usually burdensome and special techniques may be required. First, the emphasis lies on hazardous debris that is waterborne, either floating or submerged or deposited on shore-lines. Learn more about how Air Burners can help clean up this woody waste.
Don’t Grind it. Don’t Chip it. Don’t Shred it. Don’t Haul it.
Need to dispose of your wood waste? Don’t reach for that wood chipper or grinder just yet!
While chipping or grinding wood is a common way to dispose of wood waste, it isn’t exactly the most effective. And this is without mentioning its potential to cause significant environmental harm.
Instead, consider a portable air curtain incinerator—such as those from Air Burners— to get the job done right away and in a much more eco-friendly manner. Here are some ways air curtain burners are a superior investment for your wood and forest waste disposal needs compared to a wood chipper, grinder, or shredder.
5 Ways to Keep Emissions Down as the World Returns to Work
While recent world events have upended life as we know it, they have also resulted in an unexpected upside: the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions as economies were put on pause and people stopped commuting to work. But as the situation gradually stabilizes, the world is cautiously making plans to help people get back to work. While there are concerns that greenhouse gas emissions will accordingly rise back to their usual levels, this doesn’t have to happen—at least not when it comes to wood waste management, where our air curtain burners can play a role.
Air Curtain FireBoxes: Eco-Friendly Wood Waste Burners
For those involved in clearing land or managing forests, disposing of wood and vegetative waste is a necessity. Because there are many options, it can be difficult to determine the best disposal solution. Grinding reduces the volume of the material for ease of transportation, but what remains still needs to be disposed of. Composting is a consideration, but it is inefficient for the disposal of massive volumes of unwanted wood and has some other significant drawbacks. Finally, there is open pile burning, another common solution that also comes with major problems. When determining which is best for a project at hand, it’s important to understand the pros and cons of each and how each can be useful in a given circumstance.
5 Benefits of Air Curtain Destructors
Whether you are looking to clear land for construction purposes, perform forest fuels management or wildfire rehabilitation, or support natural disaster recovery operation, you’re going to need to dispose of the wood waste you’ll generate in the process. While conventional wood waste disposal methods, such as open pile burning and biomass-to-energy plants, may be popular, they have their limitations. For example, open burning results in considerable air pollution, and biomass-to-energy or cogen plants are few in numbers and can only reasonably accept wood waste from within a 50-mile travel zone.
Enter air curtain destructors also called air curtain burners or FireBoxes. Above ground air curtain destructors leverage air curtain technology to burn wood waste in a well-designed machine for a cleaner and faster burn. Read on to learn the top 5 benefits of air curtain burners relative to conventional wood waste disposal methods.
Preparing Your Worksite for an Air Burners FireBox System
Air curtain burners are the recommended disposal method for green, woody waste generated from landscaping, construction projects and forestry activities. These innovative devices are also invaluable for expediting clean-up efforts after major natural disasters. Air Burners offers an extensive lineup of air curtain burner options designed to provide portable or stationary combustion solutions for disposing of wood, brush and vegetation in a practical and environmentally sound way.
Ash Removal Methods for Air Burners FireBox Systems
Disposing of wood waste and vegetation in a safe and practical way is a key concern across a wide range of industries and organizations. The innovative air curtain burner systems manufactured and distributed by Air Burners are ideally suited for managing clean-up after major natural disasters, clearing away brush and vegetation to reduce the risk of wildfires. Air Burners systems are ideal for use at landfills to divert and eliminate vegetative waste. By disposing of these materials through the use of an air curtain burner, private companies, cities, counties and state agencies can greatly reduce the amount of cost and energy that results from managing the process through other means.
