... In 1996, Congress mandated the Committee to Review and Assess Developmental Issues that the weapons at two sites, Blue Grass Army Depot in Concerning the Metal Parts Treater Design for the Blue Kentucky and Pueblo Chemical Depot in Colorado, would Grass Chemical Agent Destruction Pilot Plant is given in not be destroyed by incineration and that the Department of the Preface. Defense should demonstrate and select alternative methods.

Assessment of Metal Parts Treater Testing During testing, the TRRP MPT unit experienced reActivities curring operating problems, such as mechanical failures and munitions bodies taking longer than expected to reach The MPT concept has been subjected to testing in the necessary high temperatures as estimated by computer TRRPs, with most of the pertinent testing conducted under modeling. the Bechtel TRRP 05c test plan (BPBGT, 2007d)

... Secondary and Closure Waste Treatment Issues •  redictions of the temperature distribution in the pro P jectiles were made by using a CFD thermal modeling Waste to be treated in the MPT includes the washed program that was compared with a previous model munitions bodies from the munitions washout system, solid used in initial PCAPP MPT testing. However, all residues from the energetics batch hydrolyzer, and secondary model results must be validated with experimental and closure waste.

The MTU could be substituted for the MPT Comparison of the metal parts treater and at BGCAPP; however, it would be necessary to do the munitions treatment unit FOR BGCAPP following: The committee reviewed the applicability of the MTU as an alternate method for decontaminating munitions bodies •  se supplemental decontamination units and auto U and secondary waste at BGCAPP. As noted above, the MTU claves to treat secondary waste, is currently planned for installation at PCAPP for the thermal •  ind another means of treating the detonators in the F decontamination of 155-mm and 105-mm projectiles and 4.2- M417 rocket fuzes, in.

... an order of magnitude less than at PCAPP; MTU availability expected to be higher than that of the MPT. MDBe footprint ~70 ft long × 40 ft wide × 20 ft ~100 ft long × 30 ft wide × 20 ft MTU would require changes high high in BGCAPP MDB layout to accommodate longer processing Total direct footprint for 2 MPTs Total direct footprint for 2 MTUs length and SDU and autoclave units plus 50 percent of MPT/washout is 5,100 square feet plus 216 and to provide for collection bins for support room plus MPT cooling square feet for collection bin receiving treated metal parts from room is 4,640 square feet.
