SAN DIEGO COUNTY AIR POLLUTION CONTROL DISTRICT

RULE 260.313 - PERFORMANCE TESTS AND COMPLIANCE PROVISIONS

(a) Rule 260.8(d) and 260.8(f) do not apply to the performance test procedures required by this subpart.

(b) The owner or operator of an affected facility shall conduct an initial performance test as required under Rule 260.8(a) and thereafter a performance test each calendar month for each affected facility according to the procedures in this rule.

(c) The owner or operator shall use the following procedures for determining monthly volume-weighted average emissions of VOC's in kilograms per liter of coating solids applied (G).
 

  1. An owner or operator shall use the following procedures for any affected facility which does not use a capture system and control device to comply with the emissions limit specified under Rule 260.312. The owner or operator shall determine the composition of the coatings by formulation data supplied by the manufacturer of the coating or by an analysis of each coating, as received, using Reference Method 24. The Control Officer may require the owner or operator who uses formulation data supplied by the manufacturer of the coating to determine the VOC content of coatings using Reference Method 24. The owner or operator shall determine the volume of coating and the mass VOC-solvent used for thinning purposes from company records on a monthly basis. If a common coating distribution system serves more than one affected facility or serves both affected and existing facilities, the owner or operator shall estimate the volume of coating used at each facility by using the average dry weight of coating and the surface area coated by each affected and existing facility or by other procedures acceptable to the Control Officer.
