Fla. Admin. Code Ann. R. 62-296.515 - Graphic Arts Systems

(1) Applicability. The control technology and provisions set forth in subsection 62-296.515(2), F.A.C., shall apply to all packaging rotogravure, publication rotogravure, or flexographic printing operations whose prior to control potential to emit volatile organic compounds is equal to or more than 100 tons per year (90 megagrams per year).
(2) Control Technology.
(a) No owner or operator of a packaging rotogravure, publication rotogravure, or flexographic printing operation subject to Rule 62-296.515, F.A.C., and employing solvent containing ink shall cause, allow or permit the operation of the facility unless:
1. The volatile fraction of ink as it is applied to the substrate, contains 25 percent by volume or less of organic solvent and 75 percent by volume or more of water; or,
2. The ink as it is applied to the substrate, less water, contains 60 percent by volume or more nonvolatile material; or,
3. An incineration system is employed which oxidizes at least 90 percent of the volatile organic compounds (VOC measured as total combustible carbon) to carbon dioxide and water.
(3) Test Methods and Procedures. All emissions tests performed pursuant to the requirements of this rule shall comply with the following requirements.
(a) Low Solvent Technology. The test method for volatile organic compounds shall be EPA Method 24 or 24A, as described at 40 C.F.R. Part 60, Appendix A-7, adopted and incorporated by reference at Rule 62-204.800, F.A.C., or EPA 450/ 3-84-019, Procedures for Certifying Quantity of Volatile Organic Compounds Emitted by Paint, Ink, and Other Coatings (http://www.flrules.org/Gateway/reference.asp?No=Ref-04298), hereby adopted and incorporated by reference.
(b) Add-on Control Device.
1. Destructive. The test method for volatile organic compounds shall be EPA Method 25, as described at 40 C.F.R. Part 60, Appendix A-7, adopted and incorporated by reference at Rule 62-204.800, F.A.C., or Attachment 3 of EPA 450/2-78-041, Alternate Test Method for Direct Measurement of Total Gaseous Organic Compounds Using a Flame Ionization Analyzer, adopted with equipment specifications per Industrial Ventilation Manual, and incorporated by reference in Chapter 62-297, F.A.C.
2. Non-destructive. The test method for volatile organic compounds shall be VOC Capture Efficiency Test Procedures as described at Rule 62-297.450, F.A.C. The sampling time for each capture efficiency test run shall be at least 8 hours, unless otherwise approved by the Department pursuant to Rule 62-297.620, F.A.C.
(c) Test procedures shall meet all applicable requirements of Chapter 62-297, F.A.C.
