Abstract The article gives results of EPA research on a 73 kW rotary kiln incinerator simulator, examining optimum settings of kiln operating parameters so as to minimize emissions during an emergency safety vent (ESV) opening event. Regarded as true emergency devices, their purpose is to vent combustion gases directly from the combustion chambers to the atmosphere if other system components fail. The article interprets experimental results in the light of previous research results on transient 'puffs.' Mechanisms governing both the release of volatile matter during an ESV event and the subsequent prolysis in the residual sorbent bed are identified. Results indicate that alteration of operator-controllable kiln parameters during the onset of an ESV opening event can have a significant effect on emissions of both organics and hydrogen chloride.
