The paper summarizes the various system performance tests and the long-term operating experience of the LINDE Oxygen Combustion System (OCS) installed on the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency's (EPA) Mobile Incineration System (MIS) when it was in operation at the Denney Farm site in southwestern Missouri. The LINDE OCS was installed on the MIS as part of a major modification program in 1987. The modified system was first demonstrated for three months in 1987 when various system performance tests were conducted. Test burns of the modified MIS showed destruction and removal efficiencies (DRE) surpassing both Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA) and Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA) standards. The system resumed operation in February 1988 to continue the incineration of dioxin-contaminated materials from sites in southwestern Missouri. This was the first application of an oxygen burner in a hazardous waste incineration system. The microprocessor-based controls of the oxygen system have exhibited excellent response, reducing the number of feed shutdowns due to low oxygen and high carbon monoxide contents in the stack gas which resulted from variations in the BTU content of the waste feed. It was also shown that nitrogen oxides emissions from the oxygen enriched operation compare favorably with the previous air-based operation.
