Technology

Thermal Desporption

Thermal Desorption is a treatment technology which removes contaminants from solid media (e.g., soils) by volatilizing them with heat, but without combustion of the media. Volatilized contaminants are carried within the process air stream and destroyed by means of thermal oxidation. The resultant media is amenable to various reuse applications once adequate contaminant removal has been demonstrated.

Applications

ESMI offers both parallel and counter flow direct fired thermal desorption units as well as indirect fired thermal desorption solutions.
