RULE 403. PARTICULATE MATTER


(Adopted 9-1-74; Revised 12-13-84)
  1. Concentration.
    A person shall not discharge from any source whatsoever particulate matter in excess of 0.15 grain per standard dry cubic foot of exhaust gas.
     
  2. Process Weight.
    A person shall not discharge in any one hour from any source whatsoever particulate matter in excess of the amount shown in Table I.
     
  3. Individual Particles.
    No person shall on or after December 31. 1976, cause, let, permit, suffer or allow the emission from any heat transfer, incinerator or metal salvage operation of particles in sufficient number to cause damage to property, which particles are of sufficient size and nature to be visible individually as particles on property other than that under the control of the person responsible for the emission.

1 Interpolation of the data in this Table shall be accomplished by the use of the equation:

E = 4.10 P0.67
E = rate of emission in lbs/hr.
P = process weight rate in tons/hr.
