Soil Vapor Extraction Using Radio Frequency Heating: Resource Manual and Technology Demonstration covers detailed scientific and engineering information that answers these questions. The book includes the necessary databases, equations, and example calculations for RF heating. One of the most widely used techniques for treating soils contaminated with volatile organic compounds, soil vapor extraction (SVE) can also be applied to semi-volatile organic compounds (SVOCs) if the soil is heated, by applying electromagnetic energy in the radio frequency (FR) range, to increase the vapor pressure of the contaminants. One of the most widely used techniques for treating soils contaminated with volatile organic compounds, soil vapor extraction (SVE) can also be applied to semi-volatile organic compounds (SVOCs) if the soil is heated, by applying electromagnetic energy in the radio frequency (FR) range, to increase. Vapor extraction method is an in situ method to clean up volatile and semi-volatile contaminants of soil especially in unsaturated areas. Thermal enhancement to extract vapors .
Heating makes the physical, chemical, and biological properties of materials such as contaminants, soil, and groundwater more amenable to remediation. RFH brings controlled heating to the subsurface, enhancing the removal of contaminants by soil vapor extraction (SVE), groundwater aeration (air sparging), bioremediation, and product by: RADIO FREQUENCY HEATING Principles of radio frequency heating Radio frequency (RF) refers to electromagnetic (EM) waves ranging from kHz to MHz. The principle of EM heating, in the RF field as well as in the microwave range, involves the conversion of EM energy into thermal energy through the interaction between the electromagnetic field and Cited by: 5. Thermally-enhanced soil remediation In situ RF heating can be used to control the temperature in a contaminated soil. The resulting increase of vapor pressure and mobility of pollutants can be exploited to enhance the process of soil vapor extraction (SVE) via extraction wells simultaneously used as RF by: 7. Radio Frequency/Electromagnetic Heating. Radio frequency heating (RFH) is an in situ process that uses electromagnetic energy to heat soil and enhance soil vapor extraction (SVE). RFH technique heats a discrete volume of soil using rows of .
An integrated RF heating and soil vapor extraction (SVE) system was designed, constructed and activated at a site impacted by TCA DNAPL in fractured crystalline bedrock. This system is believed to be the first in situ application of RF heating to treat TCA DNAPL in bedrock. RF heating is being utilized to:File Size: KB. If using the Soil Vapor Extraction Enhancement Technology Resource Matrices, use the number listed below the document title, or refer to the journal or source indicated in the source column. If multiple document ordering numbers are identified, select the appropriate number based on the directions below. Dielectric heating of soil using radio waves (RW) can be applied to support various remediation techniques, namely biodegradation and soil vapor extraction, under in situ, on site or ex situ conditions. To improve the spatial resolution of energy dissipation, the design of rod electrodes was modified with an air gap around the electrode allowing thermal treatment focused to the desired soil Cited by: There is a growing need for environmental measurement personnel who possess a solid understanding of the techniques of air pollutant sampling. This essential book explains the fundamentals of air sampling, develops the theory of gas measurement, and presents several "how-to" examples of calibration and use of air and gas sampling devices.
