§ 63.1188 What performance test requirements must I meet?
You must meet the following performance test requirements:
(a) All monitoring systems and equipment must be installed, operational, and properly calibrated before the performance tests.
(b) Do a performance test, consisting of three test runs, for each cupola and curing oven subject to this subpart at the maximum production rate to demonstrate compliance with each of the applicable emission limits in §§ 63.1178 and 63.1179 of this subpart.
(c) Measure emissions of PM from each existing cupola.
(d) Measure emissions of PM and CO from each new or reconstructed cupola.
(e) Measure emissions of formaldehyde from each existing, new or reconstructed curing oven.
(f) Measure emissions at the outlet of the control device if complying with a numerical emission limit for PM, CO, or formaldehyde, or at the inlet and outlet of the control device if complying with a percent reduction emission limit for CO or formaldehyde.
(g) To determine the average melt rate, measure and record the amount of raw materials, excluding coke, charged into and melted in each cupola during each performance test run. Determine and record the average hourly melt rate for each performance test run. Determine and record the arithmetic average of the average hourly melt rates associated with the three performance test runs. The average hourly melt rate of the three performance test runs is used to determine compliance with the applicable emission limits.
(h) Compute and record the average emissions of the three performance test runs and use the equations in § 63.1190 of this subpart to determine compliance with the applicable emission limits.
(i) Comply with control device and process operating parameter monitoring requirements for performance testing as specified in this subpart.
