Before acceptable incineration procedures can be fully developed for hazardous organic materials, precise information is often needed concerning their thermal decomposition properties. In response to this need, a laboratory-scale thermal decomposition unit-gas chromatographic system (TDU-GC) has been designed and assembled to provide data rapidly and safely on the gas-phase thermal decomposition behavior of organic substances. This system has been designed to accommodate a wide variety of organic materials which range from pure substances to very complex industrial organic waste mixtures. This report describes the design and operation of the TDAS (Thermal decomposition analytic systems).
