||Rotary kiln incineration of dichloromethane and xylene: A comparison of incinerability characteristics under various operating conditions
||Aug. 1991, Vol.41, No.8, p.1084-1094. Illus. 13 ref.
||Comparisons are made, for the first time, between the combustion characteristics of dichloromethane and xylene in an industrial rotary kiln incinerator. The comparisons are made under different operating conditions, including variable kiln rotation rate and operation both with and without turbulence air. Continuous gas composition and temperature measurements and batch gas composition measurements were obtained from two vertical locations near the exit region of the rotary kiln. The measurements show that there is significant vertical stratification at the exit of the kiln. The field-scale data of this work suggest that the revolution rate of the test liquid was increased as kiln rotation rate increased. Many of the differences between xylene and dichloromethane processing during these experiments are explained by a simple stoichiometric analysis.
