MOJAVE DESERT AIR QUALITY MANAGEMENT DISTRICT
RULE 1117 - GRAPHIC ARTS
(Adopted: June 22, 1994)
(a) Any packaging rotogravure, publication rotogravure, or flexographic printing operation.
(b) Any person who manufactures any ink, coating, or adhesive containing VOC which is sold, offered for sale, or supplied for use in packaging rotogravure, publication rotogravure, or flexographic printing operations in the District.
For the purposes of this rule, the following definitions shall apply:
metallic carbides or carbonates,
and the following four classes of perfluorocarbon (PFC) compounds:
(ii) cyclic, branched, or linear, completely fluorinated ethers with no unsaturations,
(iii) cyclic, branched, or linear, completely fluorinated tertiary amines with no unsaturations, and
(iv) saturated perfluorocarbons containing sulfur with sulfur bonds only to carbon and fluorine.
Liter of Coating
Ws = weight of volatile compounds in grams
Ww = weight of water in grams
Wes = weight of exempt compounds in grams
Vm = volume of material in liters
Vw = volume of water in liters
Ves = volume of exempt compounds in liters
(a) Averaged over any period of continuous operation not to exceed 24 hours, the control device reduces the VOC emissions delivered from the capture system to the control device by at least 90 percent, by weight; and,
(b) Averaged over any period of continuous operation not to exceed 24 hours, the combined effects of the capture and control system shall provide an overall emission reduction efficiency of at least:
(ii) 65 percent, by weight, for packaging rotogravure, or
(iii) 60 percent, by weight, for flexographic printing operations; and,
(d) During any period of operation of a thermal incinerator, combustion temperature shall be continuously monitored; and,
(e) During any period of operation of a catalytic incinerator, exhaust gas temperature shall be continuously monitored; and,
(f) Appropriate permit(s) for the emission capture and control system are obtained pursuant to District regulations.
(a) Material name, manufacturer identification, specific mixing instructions, and VOC content, as applied.
(b) The VOC content of inks, coatings, and adhesives expressed as defined in Subsection (B)(5).
(E) Monitoring and Records
Unless otherwise noted, all VOC content and density values recorded pursuant to the requirements of this rule shall be for the material as applied. Packaging rotogravure, publication rotogravure, and flexographic printing operations subject to this rule shall maintain the following records and information:
(a) a data sheet or material list giving material name, manufacturer identification, specific mixing instructions; and
(b) VOC content as applied.
(a) Records on a daily basis showing the amount of ink used. Ink use records shall be maintained using one of the following options:
(ii) Itemize each ink and pantone color and use the specific VOC content and density value for each.
(a) Records on a daily basis showing the type and amount of inks, coatings, and adhesives used. Such records shall itemize each ink, coating, and adhesive using the specific VOC content and density value for each.
(b) Daily records of key system operating and maintenance parameters which will demonstrate continuous operation and compliance of the emission control device during periods of emission producing activities. Key system operating parameters are those necessary to ensure compliance with VOC capture and control requirements (including but not limited to temperatures, pressures, and flow rates). Such records shall be kept in the form and manner as prescribed by the APCO.
(F) Test Methods
