A demonstration of the American Combustion Pyretron (TM) oxygen-enhanced burner was conducted under the Superfund Innovative Technology Evaluation (SITE) program. The Demonstration was conducted at the U.S. EPA's Combustion Research Facility (CRF) in Jefferson, Arkansas. An eight week test series was conducted which involved burning a mixture of listed waste K087 with contaminated soil from the Stringfellow Acid Pits under both oxygen enhancement and air-only conditions. Performance under both modes of operation was compared. Results show that the Pyretron operating with oxygen enhancement could meet RCRA emissions limitations at a throughput rate double that for air-only operation. Scrubber liquor and kiln ash from the tests contained no detectable levels of contaminants from either waste stream. (Copyright (c) 1989 Air and Waste Management Association.)
