Photos Were Taken at the ABCOV® Training, Demonstration, and Testing Pilot Facility
Photo 1: A view into the negative air containment that houses the ABCOV® conversion system equipment. In the containment are a 50- gallon (189.271 liters) reactor; to the right are the piggy-backed negative air machines equipped with HEPA filters backed by activated carbon charcoal filters. The negative air machines pull six to eight air changes per hour of makeup air through the containment and across the top of the shredder, holding vessel, engineered cement mixer, and asbestos conversion reactor. The ABCOV® process, unlike thermal asbestos destruction processes, does not require a complicated scrubber system.
The photo was taken through a double Plexiglas window outside the negative-air containment. Double Plexiglas windows are compulsory for all windows facing the negative-air plant operating rooms.
The reactor, for demonstration purposes, is purposely left open for the viewer to observe the ABCOV®-C and asbestos-containing material fed into it. Also, to follow the ABCOV chemical renewal process, i.e., add one or two or a combination of the following: ABCOV® Chemicals: ABCOV®-A, ABCOV®-R, ABCOV®-O, and ABCOV®- R1 to ABCOV® C, and to observe the sample taking that tracks the asbestos destruction.
