The report gives results of test work to demonstrate the effectiveness of hydrocarbon oxidation for reducing emissions from a gasoline truck loading terminal in Philadelphia that pumps about 2 million barrels of gasoline per year. Major objectives of the program were to determine control efficiency, to observe operational characteristics, and to compare this installation with other known systems. Tests run during each of the four seasons showed that the oxidizer safely and efficiently disposes of 99+% of the vapor it receives, even in extremely cold weather when the air-gasoline vapor mixture is in the flammable range. Initially, a large portion of the vapor from the trucks was not reaching the oxidizer, primarily because of blockage caused by liquid carryover to the vapor collection system. After this was corrected, collection and disposal of the vapor exceeded 90%. High efficiency and low flame temperatures of the oxidizer limit formation of emissions.
