ISTR Challenges Part 2: Electrical Resistance Heating and Steam Enhanced Extraction
Originally broadcast on Aug 30, 2022
Thermal Conduction Heating (TCH), Electrical Resistance Heating (ERH) and Steam Enhanced Extraction (SEE) are widely used thermal technologies capable of effectively remediating a variety of chemicals in various varying subsurface settings, yet sometimes operations do not perform as planned. An experienced thermal remediation contractor can help you anticipate and address site-specific challenges during full-scale thermal projects.
Presented by Vice President of Development, John LaChance and Vice President of Technology, Steffen Griepke, ISTR Challenges Part 2 covers some of the common issues that can arise at ERH and SEE sites, and discuss how they should be addressed. You’ll hear about scenarios involving
- significantly different soil electrical resistivities than planned
- slower than expected heat-up
- stray voltages and currents
- poor steam quality
- higher than expected mass removal rates
- lack of hydraulic control
- non-uniform steam delivery and heating
Join the discussion for insight to help avoid costly project delays in your next thermal project.
