U.S. Demil Orders Rotary Thermal-Treatment System
Harper International has been selected by U.S. Demil, LLC for the design of a new continuous indirect rotary thermal-treatment unit for demilitarization processing of munitions. The equipment will support Department of Defense efforts directed at reducing and recycling large stockpiles of excess, obsolete and unserviceable munitions for safety and environmental purposes. The system design considers the unique demilitarization application requirements, including design of a rotary tube to meet N.E.W. (net explosive weight) safety requirements, reinforced entrance and exit hoods, precise thermal control, and robust environmental abatement systems. Other features include the ability to relocate the fully self-contained system easily from site to site, thereby eliminating the need to transport munitions.
