Abstract:

The chemical hexamine, from the Ammonia Recovery Area of Holston Army Ammunition Plant, is presently being released into the Holston River. This study provides a means to recover the hexamine in a concentrated stream anywhere between fifteen and thirty weight percent. In this way, contaminant and hydraulic loads are reduced before entering the proposed treatment facilities. A computer simulation was used to design and prove the feasibility of the resulting two distillation columns. Several cost savings should result from these calculations. Author
