Table 3 to Subpart LLLLL of Part 63—Requirements for Performance Tests a,b
For— You must— Using— According to the following requirements—
a As specified in § 63.8687(e), you may request that data from a previously-conducted emission test serve as documentation of conformance with the emission standards and operating limits of this subpart.
b Performance tests are not required if: (1) The emissions are routed to a boiler or process heater with a design heat input capacity of 44 MW or greater; or (2) the emissions are introduced into the flame zone of a boiler or process heater.
c As an alternative to monitoring the pressure drop across the control device, owners or operators using an ESP to achieve compliance with the emission limits specified in Table 1 of this subpart can monitor the voltage to the ESP.
1. All particulate matter, total hydrocarbon, carbon monoxide, and carbon dioxide emission tests a. Select sampling port's location and the number of traverse points i. EPA test method 1 or 1A in appendix A to part 60 of this chapter A. For demonstrating compliance with the total hydrocarbon percent reduction standard, the sampling sites must be located at the inlet and outlet of the control device and prior to any releases to the atmosphere.B. For demonstrating compliance with the particulate matter mass emission rate, THC destruction efficiency, THC outlet concentration, or combustion efficiency standards, the sampling sites must be located at the outlet of the control device and prior to any releases to the atmosphere.
2. All particulate matter and total hydrocarbon tests Determine velocity and volumetric flow rate EPA test method 2, 2A, 2C, 2D, 2F, or 2G, as appropriate, in appendix A to part 60 of this chapter
3. All particulate matter and total hydrocarbon tests Determine the gas molecular weight used for flow rate determination EPA test method 3, 3A, 3B, as appropriate, in appendix A to part 60 of this chapter
4. All particulate matter, total hydrocarbon, carbon monoxide, and carbon dioxide emission tests Measure moisture content of the stack gas EPA test method 4 in appendix A to part 60 of this chapter
5. All particulate matter emission tests Measure the asphalt processing rate or the asphalt roofing manufacturing rate and the asphalt content of the product manufactured, as appropriate
6. Each control device used to comply with the particulate matter emission standards Measure the concentration of particulate matter EPA test method 5A in appendix A to part 60 of this chapter For demonstrating compliance with the particulate matter standard, the performance tests must be conducted under normal operating conditions and while manufacturing the roofing product that is expected to result in the greatest amount of hazardous air pollutant emissions.
7. All opacity tests Conduct opacity observations EPA test method 9 in appendix A to part 60 of this chapter Conduct opacity observations for at least 3 hours and obtain 30, 6-minute averages.
8. All visible emission tests Conduct visible emission observations EPA test method 22 in appendix A to part 60 of this chapter Modify EPA test method 22 such that readings are recorded every 15 seconds for a period of consecutive observations totaling 60 minutes.
9. Each combustion device used to comply with the combustion efficiency or THC standards a. Measure the concentration of carbon dioxideb. Measure the concentration of carbon monoxide EPA test method 3A in appendix A to part 60 of this chapter EPA test method 10 in appendix A to part 60 of this chapter
c. Measure the concentration of total hydrocarbons EPA test method 25A in appendix A to part 60 of this chapter
10. Each control device used to comply with the THC reduction efficiency or outlet concentration standards Measure the concentration of total hydrocarbons EPA test method 25A in appendix A to part 60 of this chapter
11. Each combustion device Establish a site-specific combustion zone temperature limit Data from the CPMS and the applicable performance test method(s) You must collect combustion zone temperature data every 15 minutes during the entire period of the initial 3-hour performance test, and determine the average combustion zone temperature over the 3-hour performance test by computing the average of all of the 15-minute readings.
12. Each control device used to comply with the particulate matter emission standards Establish a site-specific inlet gas temperature limit; and establish a site-specific limit for the pressure drop across the device Data from the CPMS and the applicable performance test method(s) You must collect the inlet gas temperature and pressure drop b data every 15 minutes during the entire period of the initial 3-hour performance test, and determine the average inlet gas temperature and pressure drop c over the 3-hour performance test by computing the average of all of the 15-minute readings.
13. Each control device other than a combustion device or device used to comply with the particulate matter emission standards Establish site-specific monitoring parameters Process data and data from the CPMS and the applicable performance test method(s) You must collect monitoring parameter data every 15 minutes during the entire period of the initial 3-hour performance test, and determine the average monitoring parameter values over the 3-hour performance test by computing the average of all of the 15-minute readings.
14. Each flare used to comply with the THC percent reduction or PM emission limits Assure that the flare is operated and maintained in conformance with its design The requirements of § 63.11(b)
