Thermal desorption includes a number of ex situ processes that use either direct or indirect heat exchange to heat a waste material to volatilize organic materials. Thermal desorption systems typically operate at soil treatment temperatures in the range of 400 to 600F to treat petroleum contamination. However, systems constructed of special alloys are available that will operate at soil discharge temperatures as high as 1,200F.
