The report gives results of a study of emissions from waste crankcase oil heaters. The data provided should be useful to heater manufacturers and to regulators. Burner design and fuel composition affect the level of inorganic elements emitted. The vaporizing pot burner retained a significant amount of the trace elements in the pot residue, whereas the air-atomizing burner allowed more of the trace elements to be carried by the flue gas into the stack. The study also showed that total organic emissions from the two burner designs are similar; however, higher levels of polynuclear aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) were in discharges of the vaporizing pot burner.
