The NELSON Environmental Group is known throughout the world for its expertise in soil remediation using low-temperature desorption through our mobile remediation technology. We have expanded our services to include…

Direct Fired Thermal Desorption

Direct Fired Thermal Desorption (TDU) removes organic contaminants from soil, sludge or sediment by heating them in a machine called a “thermal desorber” to evaporate the contaminants. The evaporation process volatilizes the organic contaminants in the soil into a vapour phase (gases) which in turn, separates them from the solid material.

Indirect Fired Thermal Desorption 

NELSON’S Indirect Thermal Desorption (ITD) uses an inclined rotating metallic cylinder to heat the feed material. The heat transfer mechanism is conduction through the cylinder wall. In this type of system neither the flame nor the products of combustion can contact the feed solids or the off gas.
