Table 4 to Subpart KKKKK of Part 63—Requirements for Performance Tests
As stated in § 63.8595, you must conduct each performance test in the following table that applies to you.
For each . . . You must . . . Using . . . According to the following requirements . . .
1. New or reconstructed tunnel kiln; each tunnel kiln that would be considered reconstructed but for § 63.8540(f)(1); and each tunnel kiln that would be considered reconstructed but for § 63.8540(f)(2) a. Select locations of sampling ports and the number of traverse points Method 1 or 1A of 40 CFR part 60, appendix A Sampling sites must be located at the outlet of the APCD and prior to any releases to the atmosphere for all affected sources. If you choose to meet the percent emission reduction requirements for HF or HCl, a sampling site must also be located at the APCD inlet.
b. Determine velocities and volumetric flow rate Method 2 of 40 CFR part 60, appendix A You may use Method 2A, 2C, 2D, 2F, or 2G of 40 CFR part 60, appendix A, as appropriate, as an alternative to using Method 2 of 40 CFR part 60, appendix A.
c. Conduct gas molecular weight analysis Method 3 of 40 CFR part 60, appendix A You may use Method 3A or 3B of 40 CFR part 60, appendix A, as appropriate, as an alternative to using Method 3 of 40 CFR part 60, appendix A.
d. Measure moisture content of the stack gas Method 4 of 40 CFR part 60, appendix A.
e. Measure HF and HCl emissions Method 26A of 40 CFR part 60, appendix A; or Conduct the test while operating at the maximum production level. You may use Method 26 of 40 CFR part 60, appendix A, as an alternative to using Method 26A of 40 CFR part 60, appendix A, when no acid PM (e.g., HF or HCl dissolved in water droplets emitted by sources controlled by a WS) is present.
Method 320 of 40 CFR part 63, appendix A Conduct the test while operating at the maximum production level. When using Method 320 of 40 CFR part 63, appendix A, you must follow the analyte spiking procedures of section 13 of Method 320 of 40 CFR part 63, appendix A, unless you can demonstrate that the complete spiking procedure has been conducted at a similar source.
f. Measure PM emissions Method 5 of 40 CFR part 60, appendix A Conduct the test while operating at the maximum production level.
2. Kiln that is complying with production-based emission limits Determine the production rate during each test run in order to determine compliance with production-based emission limits Production data collected during the performance tests (e.g., the number of ceramic pieces and weight per piece in the kiln during a test run divided by the amount of time to fire a piece) You must measure and record the production rate, on a fired-product weight basis, of the affected kiln for each of the three test runs.
3. Kiln equipped with a DLA. a. Establish the operating limit for the average pressure drop across the DLA Data from the pressure drop measurement device during the performance test You must continuously measure the pressure drop across the DLA, determine and record the block average pressure drop values for the three test runs, and determine and record the 3-hour block average of the recorded pressure drop measurements for the three test runs.
b. Establish the operating limit for the limestone feeder setting Data from the limestone feeder during the performance test You must ensure that you maintain an adequate amount of limestone in the limestone hopper, storage bin (located at the top of the DLA), and DLA at all times during the performance test. You must establish your limestone feeder setting one week prior to the performance test and maintain the feeder setting for the one-week period that precedes the performance test and during the performance test.
c. Document the source and grade of limestone used Records of limestone purchase.
4. Kiln equipped with a DIFF or DLS/FF Establish the operating limit for the lime feeder setting Data from the lime feeder during the performance test For continuous lime injection systems, you must ensure that lime in the feed hopper or silo and to the APCD is free-flowing at all times during the performance test and record the feeder setting for the three test runs. If the feed rate setting varies during the three test runs, determine and record the average feed rate from the three test runs.
5. Kiln equipped with a WS a. Establish the operating limit for the average scrubber pressure drop Data from the pressure drop measurement device during the performance test You must continuously measure the scrubber pressure drop, determine and record the block average pressure drop values for the three test runs, and determine and record the 3-hour block average of the recorded pressure drop measurements for the three test runs.
b. Establish the operating limit for the average scrubber liquid pH Data from the pH measurement device during the performance test You must continuously measure the scrubber liquid pH, determine and record the block average pH values for the three test runs, and determine and record the 3-hour block average of the recorded pH measurements for the three test runs.
c. Establish the operating limit for the average scrubber liquid flow rate Data from the flow rate measurement device during the performance test You must continuously measure the scrubber liquid flow rate, determine and record the block average flow rate values for the three test runs, and determine and record the 3-hour block average of the recorded flow rate measurements for the three test runs.
6. Kiln equipped with a WS that includes chemical addition to the water Establish the operating limit for the average scrubber chemical feed rate Data from the chemical feed rate measurement device during the performance test You must continuously measure the scrubber chemical feed rate, determine and record the block average chemical feed rate values for the three test runs, and determine and record the 3-hour block average of the recorded chemical feed rate measurements for the three test runs.
