Abstract : A test burn was conducted on T-Thermal's LV-1 SUB-X incinerator pilot facility on February 21 through 23, 1989. The purpose of this test was to demonstrate the destruction efficiency obtained when using a T-Thermal incinerator system for the destruction of RMA basin F liquid waste. It was concluded that: (1) Aqueous waste will burn with natural gas used as auxiliary fuel and excess air rates between 19.3% and 51/4%; (2) Steam atomization is needed to keep the tip clean and co emissions at acceptable levels; and (3) The full scale unit should be operated at 1900 degrees F. This report includes descriptions of the equipment used and the test conditions. Data tables summarize the results from the various tests.
