- In situ vitrification (ISV) has been identified as a potential treatment technology for stabilizing underground tanks at Hanford and other US Department of Energy (DOE) sites. A key requirement for this application is an electrical system that can supply the power needed to vitrify a tank in a single setting. This paper describes an engineering-scale test conducted at the Pacific Northwest Laboratory (PNL) to assess the efficiency of a six-electrode, six-phase energy supply system in melting soil. The test was conducted with a 30-kW six-phase system. Based on the test results, a six-electrode, six-phase system shows potential for scaleup to larger systems. 5 refs., 5 figs., 2 tabs.
