(1)No person shall cause or permit to be emitted into the open air from any incinerator which incinerates wood, peanut, or cotton ginning wastes, particulate matter in the exhaust gases to exceed 0.40 pounds per 100 pounds of materials charged.
(2)Emission tests shall be conducted at maximum burning capacity of the incinerator.
(3)The burning capacity of an incinerator shall be the manufacturer's or designer's guaranteed maximum rate or such other rate as may be determined by the Director in accordance with good engineering practices. In case of conflict, the determination made by the Director shall govern.
(4)Each incinerator subject to this Rule shall be properly designed, equipped, and maintained for its maximum burning capacity and shall be equipped with a temperature recorder which shall be operated continuously with the incinerator; and the temperature records shall be made available for inspection at the request of the Director and shall either:
(a)be equipped with an underfire forced air system, which shall be electronically controlled to insure that optimum temperature range for the complete combustion of the amount and type of material waste being charged into the incinerator, and a variable damper, or
(b)consist of an all-metal shell with refractory lining, circular furnace, and a built-in cinder catching system for either reburning or other disposition; all primary combustion air shall be supplied under pressure through nozzle openings located around the periphery of the lower furnace; over-fire air shall be provided under pressure through ports which shall be directed downward and tangentially in the same direction as the primary air; cinder collection shall be accomplished by the provision of openings through the shell located above the furnace section.
(5)Each incinerator subject to this Rule shall be properly designed, equipped, and maintained for its maximum rated burning capacity and shall be equipped with an underfire forced air system, an over-fire air recirculation secondary combustion system, and variable control damper, all of which shall be electronically controlled to insure the optimum temperature range for the complete combustion of the amount and type of material waste being charged into the incinerator. Each such incinerator shall be equipped with a temperature recorder which shall be operated continuously with the incinerator, and the temperature records shall be made available for inspection at the request of the Director.
