Regenerative Thermal Oxidizer

Regenerative Thermal Oxidizer

Update for Week of August 6, 2018:

Electrical Resistance Heating (ERH) treatment system operating measures as of August 3, 2018:

  • Average subsurface temperature has risen to 101º C versus a target temperature of 87º C.
  • The ERH system has applied 4,926,855 kWh of the estimated 8,255,000 kWh to complete treatment.  This represents 60% of the estimated total energy necessary to complete remediation.
  • The estimated TCE removal to-date is 765 pounds (through July 27th).
  • The perimeter air monitoring system has shown no TCE emissions at the perimeter of the site. The air monitoring results will be available on EPA’s website at

Please note that you may see occasional steam from the thermal treatment unit during system operation.  This is normal water condensation caused by weather conditions, and not a release of TCE vapor.
