Description: On July 1, 1975, Monsanto Research Corporation was funded by ERDA/DWMT to continue studies at Mound Laboratory with a cyclone incinerator pilot plant for the consolidation of low level radioactive wastes. The report summarizes activities associated with the LSA Cyclone Incinerator Program for the period from July 1, 1975, to June 30, 1976. The document includes work performed in June, 1976, which has not been previously reported. The pilot plant had been installed prior to July 1, 1975, to investigate the feasibility of this method for effectively reducing the volume of LSA wastes. Such a method is badly needed to reduce the costs of transporting such wastes and improving the safety of disposing of them. In addition to using the incinerator to develop parameters for the efficient volume reduction of Mound-generated wastes, the unit is also available for studies to adapt this incinerator concept to the needs of other ERDA sites. The results of such studies then can be used to construct suitable incinerators at these sites.
