Abstract The report describes the results of a series of experiments which were conducted to augment the data presented in a previous report (EPA 560-5-84-009). The work presented here includes both repeat runs of those previously reported and also investigations of materials not previously tested. The results of the repeat runs correlate well with the previously reported results. The formation of PCDFs and PCDDs from the PCB-spiked mineral oil, as well as the calculated destruction efficiencies for PCBs, closely match the previously reported results. The repeat chlorobenzene runs show higher levels of PCDF and PCDD formation than previously. However, several concentrations in the previous report are 'greater than' values; hence, comparison is difficult. Significant amounts of PCDFs and PCDDs were formed from the tetrachloroethylene fluid. The two high temperature hydrocarbon fluids did not produce PCDFs or PCDDs. It appears that, under these thermal destruction conditions, the extent of PCDF formation varies among dielectric fluids by several orders of magnitude.
