Products & Equipment Used:
  • Pneumatic Foam Unit 1600/40
  • AC-912 Long Duration Foam

Application summary:

Management at the Adams Center (IN) Commercial Hazardous Waste Landfill detected contaminants in their secondary leachate containment system, indicating a leak in the liner system. They decided to excavate the immediate area in order to repair the liner. This entailed excavating approximately 3 to 4 acres along a vertical surface. Rusmar Incorporated's AC-912 Long Duration Foam product was chosen to control emissions during the excavation because of its reputation of success with emissions control on vertical surfaces and its ability to control emissions for a minimum period of three months. The liner system was repaired and there were no emissions problems or complaints during the excavation.
