The report reviews the chemistry and reaction kinetics of oxidation and pyrolysis reaction that occur in afterburners (or fume incinerators) that are used to destroy organic pollutants in air or gas streams. Chemical kinetic rate data are compiled for both complex and global reaction mechanisms of interest for the design and analysis of afterburner systems. Direct-flame, thermal and catalytic afterburner systems are covered. Details are also given on techniques for estimating chemical rate data when experimental data are unavailable. Appropriate equations are given for calculating the chemical performance characteristics of afterburner systems, and recommendations are made for using chemical rate data for the analysis of afterburner systems.
