Site 6, a multiple hearth furnace was tested under two operating conditions, normal combustion was compared with improved combustion conditions as indicated by reduced CO and THC emissions. The effect of lime conditioning on the conversion of total chromium in the sludge to hexavalent chromium emissions was also a primary concern at Site 6. Secondary objectives included comparing the results for chromium and nickel subspecies determined by different analytical procedures, gathering data on other metals and inorganic/organic gases in incinerator emissions, and assessing pollutant removal efficiencies by measuring emissions at both the inlet and outlet to the control system. Volume IV contains the appendices to volume III (Site 6 Emission Test Report). These are (1) Incinerator and Scrubber Operating Data; (2) Sampling and Analytical Methods; (3) Sample Calculations; (4) Analytical Data and Reports, and (5) Continuous Emissions Monitoring Data, Calibrations/One-min Average.
