What are the management practices and other requirements?
(a) Management practices. If you have a CMPU subject to this subpart, you must comply with paragraphs (a)(1) through (5) of this section.
(1) Each process vessel in organic HAP service or metal HAP service must be equipped with a cover or lid that must be in place at all times when the vessel contains HAP, except for material addition and sampling.
(2) You must use any of the methods listed in paragraphs (a)(2)(i) through (iv) of this section to control total organic HAP emissions from transfer of liquids containing Table 1 organic HAP to tank trucks or railcars. You are not required to comply with this paragraph (a)(2) if you have notified the Administrator in your initial notification that a material is reactive or resinous, and you will not be able to comply with any of the methods in paragraphs (a)(2)(i) through (iv) of this section for the transfer of such material.
(i) Use submerged loading or bottom loading.
(ii) Route emissions to a fuel gas system or process in accordance with § 63.982(d) of subpart SS.
(iii) Vapor balance back to the storage tank or another storage tank connected by a common header.
(iv) Vent through a closed-vent system to a control device.
(3) You must conduct inspections of process vessels and equipment for each CMPU in organic HAP service or metal HAP service at least quarterly to demonstrate compliance with these requirements and to determine that the process vessels and equipment are sound and free of leaks. For these inspections, detection methods incorporating sight, sound, or smell are acceptable. The inspection must include direct and proximal (thorough) inspection of all areas of potential leak within the CMPU. Indications of a leak identified using such method constitutes a leak unless you demonstrate that the indications of a leak are due to a condition other than loss of HAP. Alternatively, Method 21 of 40 CFR part 60, appendix A-7, with a leak definition of 500 parts per million by volume (ppmv), may be used for detection of leaks or to determine if the indications of a leak are due to a condition other than loss of HAP. If indications of a leak are determined not to be HAP in one quarterly monitoring period, you must still perform the inspection and demonstration in the next quarterly monitoring period. Inspections must be conducted while the subject CMPU is operating. No inspection is required in a calendar quarter during which the subject CMPU does not operate for the entire calendar quarter and is not in organic HAP service or metal HAP service. If the CMPU operates at all during a calendar quarter, an inspection is required.
(4) You must repair any leak within 15 calendar days after detection of the leak, or document the reason for any delay of repair. For the purposes of this paragraph (a)(4), a leak will be considered “repaired” if a condition specified in paragraph (a)(4)(i), (ii), or (iii) of this section is met.
(i) The visual, audible, olfactory, or other indications of a leak to the atmosphere have been eliminated, or
(ii) No bubbles are observed at potential leak sites during a leak check using soap solution, or
(iii) The system will hold a test pressure.
(5) You must keep records of the dates and results of each inspection event, the dates of equipment repairs, and, if applicable, the reasons for any delay in repair.
(b) Small heat exchange systems. For each heat exchange system subject to this subpart with a cooling water flow rate less than 8,000 gallons per minute (gal/min) and not meeting one or more of the conditions in § 63.104(a), you must comply with paragraphs (b)(1) through (3) of this section, or as an alternative, you may comply with any one of the requirements in Item 1.a or 1.b of Table 8 to this subpart.
(1) You must develop and operate in accordance with a heat exchange system inspection plan. The plan must describe the inspections to be performed that will provide evidence of hydrocarbons in the cooling water. Among other things, inspections may include checks for visible floating hydrocarbon on the water, hydrocarbon odor, discolored water, and/or chemical addition rates. You must conduct inspections at least once per quarter, even if the previous inspection determined that the indications of a leak did not constitute a leak as defined by § 63.104(b)(6).
(2) You must perform repairs to eliminate the leak and any indications of a leak or demonstrate that the HAP concentration in the cooling water does not constitute a leak, as defined by § 63.104(b)(6), within 45 calendar days after indications of the leak are identified, or you must document the reason for any delay of repair in your next semiannual compliance report.
(3) You must keep records of the dates and results of each inspection, documentation of any demonstrations that indications of a leak do not constitute a leak, the dates of leak repairs, and, if applicable, the reasons for any delay in repair.
(c) Startup, shutdown, and malfunction (SSM) provisions in subparts that are referenced in paragraphs (a) and (b) of this section do not apply.
