Abstract : A 50-lb/hr incinerator and associated gas-cleaning equipment for the concentration of low-level radioactive waste has been designed and fabricated. Part I of this memorandum reports the results of contractual performance tests. All items met over-all performance test requirements except the air-dilution valve, which was rejected because of leakage in excess of specified limits. To replace the rejected item, USANDL personnel designed, fabricated, installed, and tested a new air-dilution system. Part II of this memorandum delineates the engineering evaluation program presently being conducted. Techniques being evaluated include the use of overfire auxiliary air, continuous auxiliary gas fuel, combustion temperatures up to 2500 F, and dry collection methods for effluent gas-cleaning. Part III briefly outlines the objectives and procedures to be employed during the radiological and isotopic evaluation.
