The software supervisor for Assembled Chemical guns overview (PMACWA) of the dept of protection (DOD) asked the nationwide examine Council (NRC) to evaluate the engineering layout reviews (EDSs) constructed by way of Parsons/Honeywell and normal Atomics for a chemical demilitarization facility to totally put off the assembled chemical guns on the Pueblo Chemical Depot in Pueblo, Colorado. to complete the duty, the NRC shaped the Committee on overview and assessment of different applied sciences for Demilitarization of Assembled Chemical guns: part II (ACW II Committee). This file provides the result of the committee's clinical and technical evaluation, in an effort to help the place of work of the Secretary of safeguard in picking the know-how package deal for destroying the chemical munitions at Pueblo.
The committee evaluated the engineering layout programs proposed by way of the expertise prone and the linked experimental stories that have been played to validate unproven unit operations. an important a part of the checking out software concerned increasing the know-how base for the hydrolysis of full of life fabrics linked to assembled guns. This technique was once a priority expressed by means of the Committee on evaluation and evaluate of other applied sciences for Demilitarization of Assembled Chemical guns (ACW I Committee) in its unique file in 1999 (NRC, 1999). the current research happened because the experimental experiences have been in growth. every now and then, exams for the various assisting unit operations weren't accomplished in time for the committee to include effects into its review. In these situations, the committee pointed out and mentioned power areas of difficulty in those operations. in accordance with its services and its competitive data-gathering actions, the committee used to be capable of behavior a entire evaluation of the attempt info that were accomplished for the general method layout. This document summarizes the study.

Screen mesh size and screen location need to be chosen carefully to ensure that chunks are controlled and the screen is kept open enough to maintain flow. , inputs and outputs) need to be integrated into a control system that links process perturbations with variables subject to manipulation. , a tachometer) Process control setpoints and limits for acceptable operation should then be established, along with control algorithms that implement corrective action if process upsets or perturbations are detected.
In the first ACW I Committee report, the committee expressed concern about the immaturity of the technology base for the hydrolysis of energetic materials. 999 percent, the chemistry of the process was not well understood (NRC, 1999). The committee reiterated these concerns in the supplemental report (NRC, 2000). In response to these concerns, PMACWA initiated a multilaboratory test program during the EDS phase to clarify the chemical and engineering parameters for the efficient, safe alkaline hydrolysis of the energetic materials in assembled chemical weapons.
Chapter 2 discusses the results of hydrolysis studies on energetic materials sponsored by PMACWA in response to the ACW I Committee’s original recommendations. Chapter 3 discusses the General Atomics EDP; Chapter 4 discusses the Parsons/ Honeywell EDP. The results of testing completed in support reviewed and updated. , Finding (Demo I) GA-1. Also, the findings and recommendations new to this report by the ACW II Committee include (Pueblo) in the designation. of the EDPs and available to the ACW II Committee at the time this report was prepared are also reviewed.
