Test plan for measuring ventilation rates and combustible gas levels in TWRS active catch tanks

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

The purpose of this test is to provide an initial screening of combustible gas concentrations in catch tanks that currently are operated by Tank Waste Remediation System (TWRS). The data will be used to determine whether or not additional data will be needed for closure of the flammable gas unreviewed safety question for these facilities. This test will involve field measurements of ammonia, organic vapor, and total combustible gas levels in the headspace of the catch tanks. If combustible gas level in a tank exceeds an established threshold, gas samples will be collected in SUMMA canisters for more extensive laboratory ... continued below

In addition, ventilation rates of some catch tanks will be measured to evaluate removal of flammable gas by air flow through the tanks.
