Thermal Treatment and Low Temp Desorption of Soils

Course Description

The course is focused on use of direct fired low temp thermal desorbers, and indirect fired retorts and heated auger systems for treatment of contaminated soil, sludge and other media. The knowledge gained in the course will allow attendees to procure hardware or services for site remediation and avoid mistakes in specification and operation. Part of the value of this course is the practical experience of the presenter and his knowledge of what works best for a particular application. Case studies are used for illustration purposes, with many photos used of actual industrial equipment and projects.

The course is presented to industrial and institutional clients on demand.  Course notes are provided.
