In this study, operation data from an actual plant in M city were analyzed to evaluate effects of water supply into sewage sludge on the co-incineration of municipal solid waste (MSW) and sewage sludge. Design capacity of the stoker incinerator is 50 m3/day. Maximum portion of sewage sludge in the total waste input was 20%. According to this research, moisture content increase up to 85% of sewage sludge could be possible by water supply on MSW input to the incinerator. Therefore, stable operation of incinerator could be achieved. As water was added into sewage sludge up to 85%, input quantity of sewage sludge to frequency (Hz) was similar to theoretical input. Also, it is concluded that stable management of incinerator without leachate combustion and damages of refractory bricks and castable could be achieved by the reduction of low heating value.
