Superfund Technology Evaluation Report: SITE Program Demonstration Test Shirco Pilot-Scale Infrared Incineration System at the Rose Township Demode Road Superfund Site Volume I
Rosenthal, S. Superfund Technology Evaluation Report: SITE Program Demonstration Test Shirco Pilot-Scale Infrared Incineration System at the Rose Township Demode Road Superfund Site Volume I. EPA/540/5-89/007a (NTIS 89-167902), 1989.
The Shirco Pilot-Scale Infrared Incineration System was evaluated during a series of seventeen test runs under varied operating conditions at the Demode Road Superfund Site located in Rose Township, Michigan. The tests sought to demonstrate the effectiveness of the unit and the technology in thermal destruction of soil contaminants, as recommended by the Remedial Investigation and Feasibility Study conducted between 1984 and 1986. The report includes a process description ot the unit and field operations documentation including a discussion of the operational history during the test program, a summary of operating conditions, and the operating log data. The report also includes sampling and analytical procedures and data along with the approved quality assurance project plan. The report provides a performance evaluation of the unit based on the test program data and observations and an overall unit cost analysis and evaluation. Based on the above information, the report provides the initial data and evaluation criteria to enable the EPA to determine the applicability of the Shirco technology to Superfund site investigations and cleanups throughout the country. The report covers a period from May 11, 1987 to September 30, 1988, with the test demonstration of the unit occurring from November 2, 1987 to November 13, 1987.
