Properties of lightweight aggregate produced by rapid sintering of incinerator bottom ash

  title={Properties of lightweight aggregate produced by rapid sintering of incinerator bottom ash},
  author={Christopher R Cheeseman and A O Makinde and Sophia Bethanis},
The fraction of municipal solid waste incinerator bottom ash with a particle size less than 8mm has been milled, formed into pellets and rapidly sintered in a rotary furnace at temperatures between 900 and 1080◦C. The effect of sintering temperature on density, water absorption and crushing strength has been determined. Sintering at temperatures between 1000 and 1050 ◦C produces pellets with physical properties comparable to Lytag, a commercially available lightweight aggregate manufactured… CONTINUE READING
