SAN DIEGO COUNTY AIR POLLUTION CONTROL DISTRICT

RULE 260.444 - PERFORMANCE TEST PROCEDURES

(a) The performance test for affected facilities complying with Rule 260.442 without the use of add-on controls shall be identical to the procedures specified in Rule 260.443(a).

(b) The performance test for affected facilities controlled by a solvent recovery device shall be conducted as follows:
 

  1.  The performance test shall be a one calendar month test and not the average of three runs as specified in Rule 260.8(f).
  2. The weighted average mass of VOC per mass of coating solids applied for a one calendar month period shall be determined as specified in Rules 260.443(a)(1) and 260.443 (a)(2).
  3. Calculate the required percent overall VOC emission reduction as specified in Rule 260.443(b).
  4. Inventory VOC usage and VOC recovery for a one calendar month period.
  5. Determine the percent overall VOC emission reduction as specified in Rule 260.443(c).

(c) The performance test for affected facilities controlled by a solvent destruction device shall be conducted as follows:
 

  1. The performance of the solvent destruction device shall be determined by averaging the results of three test runs as specified in Rule 260.8(f).
  2. Determine for each affected facility prior to each test run the weighted average mass of VOC per mass of coating solids applied being used at the facility. The weighted average shall be determined as specified in Rule 260.443(a). In this application the quantities of Woi, Wsi, and Mi shall be determined for the time period of each test run and not a calendar month as specified in Rule 260.441.
  3. Calculate the required percent overall VOC emission reduction as specified in Rule 260.443(b).
  4. Determine the percent overall VOC emission reduction of the solvent destruction device by the following equation and procedures:
