Abstract:

Five surrogate waste constituents, toluene, isopropanol, methyl ethyl ketone, trichloroethylene, and monochlorobenzene, were examined for destruction removal efficiency DRE. Toluene, isopropanol, and methyl ethyl ketone were burned without auxiliary fuel and, trichloroethylene and monochlorobenzene were burned with auxiliary fuel in an incineration tunnel. Sulfur Hexafluoride SF6 was used as a tracer in all experiments. The results indicate that SF6 DRE was significantly lower than DREs of SF6 and surrogate wastes dropped when excess air was above 100-120. The relationship between SF6 DRE and excess air revealed similar trends when SF6 was injected with natural gas as fuel in the incineration tunnel and a steam plant boiler. For a given excess air value, the DREs in the boiler are lower than in the incineration tunnel.
