Fluidized bed incineration of transuranic contaminated waste

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

A 9 kg/h pilot scale fluidized bed incinerator is now being used for burning various types of radioactive waste at Rocky Flats Plant. General solid combustible waste containing halogenated materials is burned in a fluidized bed of sodium carbonate for in stu neutralization of thermally generated acidic gases. A variety of other production related materials has been burned in the incinerator, including ion exchange resin, tributyl phosphate solutions, and air filters. Successful operation of the pilot plant incinerator has led to the design and construction of a production size unit to burn 82 kg/h of plant-generated waste. Residues from incinerator ... continued below
