Quran Incinerator, Fuel Consumption, Disposal System, Environmental Effect.


In this study, the fuel consumption characteristic of a Quran incineration system was conducted. The experiment examines the relation between fuel usage and Quran loads as well as how the usage of blower affects the fuel utilization. The result proved that the blower unit shortens the combustion time and uses less fuel. Nevertheless, the electrical source to power the blower will increase the operating costs, especially during full loading operation. Therefore, this study will provide insight in determining the balance between the combustion duration over the operational costing of such a system.
