||The report gives results of experiments to determine the effect of flame zone temperature on gas-phase flame formation and destruction of products of incomplete combustion (PICs) during dichlorodifluoromethane (CFC-12) incineration. The effect of water injection into the flame zone was also studied. Tests involved burning CFC-12 in a propane gas flame. Combustion gas samples were taken and analyzed for volatile organic compounds as well as polychlorinated dibenzo-p-dioxin and dibenzofuran (PCDD/PCDF). PCDD/PCDF were not detected at baseline operating conditions (1204C and 9.3 percent CFC-12 by volume in fuel). Low levels of PCDD/PCDF were detected in the combustion gas at a lower temperature (913C). Poor combustion conditions producing smoke and soot may have contributed to the formation of PCDD/PCDF. Low levels of PCDD/PCDF were also detected at the lower temperature with water injection into the flame zone.
