The chlorinated organic materials produced by applying the proprietary Purifax process to a septage and a mixed primary/secondary sludge were studied to assess the types, amounts, and distribution of chlorinated organics present. Total organic chlorine in the solids phases was determined by Schoniger-flask combustion. Concentrated hexane-ether extracts of the liquid phases were also analyzed for total organic chlorine by microcoulometric titration; these same extracts were then analyzed by GC/MS for individual organic compounds. Helium-purgeable organics in the liquid phases were also determined by GC/MS. Liquid phases from one Purifax installation were analyzed for TOC, TDS, and TSS to furnish engineering cost data for applying filtration/carbon adsorption as a Purifax-treatment adjunct.
