The paper gives results of an experimental investigation into the waste properties and kiln parameters that determine both the instantaneous intensity and total magnitude of transient puffs leaving the kiln. (NOTE: The batch introduction of waste-filled drums or containers into practical rotary kiln incinerators can lead to transient overcharging conditions, refered to here as puffs.) The experimental apparatus utilized was a 73 kW laboratory rotary kiln simulator. Surrogate solid wastes in the form of plastic rods and surrogate liquid wastes on sorbents in cardboard containers were investigated. A statistically designed parametric study was used to determine the extent to which waste and kiln variables affected the intensity (hydrocarbon peak height) and magnitude (hydrocarbon peak area) of puffs.
