Abstract : In 1994 the United States Army Environmental Center contracted Roy F. Weston Inc. to design, procure, demonstrate, and validate transportable hot-gas decontamination (HGD) equipment. The HGD equipment was delivered in March 1995, demonstrated in December 1995, and validated between January and March 1996. This report documents the validation testing of the transportable HGD system for the decontamination of explosives-contaminated materials and debris. The purpose of validation being was to demonstrate the effectiveness of the HGD process, and to define an optimum set of operating conditions that would then be used to support future real-world applications. A description of the validated equipment, details of the validation testing and analysis, operations logs, and the data and results related to emissions testing are provided as part of this document.
