Abstract: Army demilitarization furnaces, which are used to destroy obsolete munitions, generate fine particulate material containing lead and cadmium. The Army currently controls these emissions by using ceramic baghouses, which are characterized by limited efficiency and expensive maintenance. This work was undertaken as a preliminary step in an effort to design more efficient emission control technologies. The first part of this effort was to characterize the material object of the control. This work obtained information on the chemical species, phase distribution, and particle size distribution of lead and cadmium in the exhaust gas stream from the Deactivation Furnace System at the Tooele Army Depot, UT.
