What definitions apply to this subpart?
Terms used in this subpart are defined in the CAA, in 40 CFR 63.2
, and in this section as follows:
Anode copper means copper that is cast into anodes and refined in an electrolytic process to produce high purity copper.
Capture system means the collection of components used to capture gases and fumes released from one or more emissions points and then convey the captured gas stream to a control device. A capture system may include, but is not limited to, the following components as applicable to a given capture system design: duct intake devices, hoods, enclosures, ductwork, dampers, manifolds, plenums, and fans.
Melting furnace means any furnace, reactor, or other type of vessel that heats solid materials and produces a molten mass of material.
Secondary copper smelter means a facility that processes copper scrap in a blast furnace and converter or that uses another pyrometallurgical purification process to produce anode copper from copper scrap, including low-grade copper scrap. A facility where recycled copper scrap or copper alloy scrap is melted to produce ingots or for direct use in a manufacturing process is not a secondary copper smelter.
Smelting furnace means any furnace, reactor, or other type of vessel in which copper scrap and fluxes are melted to form a molten mass of material containing copper and slag.
Work practice standard means any design, equipment, work practice, or operational standard, or combination thereof.
