Ill. Admin. Code tit. 35, § 218.111 - Vapor Pressure of Volatile Organic Material

Current through Vol. 46, No. 16, April 15, 2022

a) If the VOM consists of only a single compound, the vapor pressure shall be determined by ASTM Method D2879-86 (incorporated by reference in Section 218.112 of this Part) or the vapor pressure may be obtained from a publication such as: Boublik, T., V. Fried and E. Hala, "The Vapor Pressure of Pure Substances," Elsevier Scientific Publishing Co., New York (1973); Perry's Chemical Engineer's Handbook, McGraw-Hill Book Company (1984); CRC Handbook of Chemistry and Physics, Chemical Rubber Publishing Company (1986-87); and Lange's Handbook of Chemistry, John A. Dean, editor, McGraw-Hill Book Company (1985).
b) If the VOM is in a mixture made up of both VOM compounds and compounds which are not VOM, the vapor pressure shall be determined by the following equation:

where:

Pvom

=

Total vapor pressure of the portion of the mixture which is composed of VOM;

n

=

Number of VOM components in the mixture;

i

=

Subscript denoting an individual component;

Pi

=

Vapor pressure of a VOM component determined in accordance with subsection (a) of this Section;

Xi

=

Mole fraction of the VOM component of the total organic mixture.

c) If the VOM is in a mixture made up of only VOM compounds, the vapor pressure shall be determined by ASTM Method D2879-86 (incorporated by reference in Section 218.112 of this Part) or by the above equation.
