MOJAQMD RULE 1003.1 EMISS.STD.FOR BERYLLIUM,ROCKET MTR.FIR.

LAST REVISED 12/03/76

(Adopted: December 3, 1976)

Rule 1003.1

Emission Standard for Beryllium, Rocket Motor Firing

(a) Definitions

(1) BERYLLIUM PROPELLANT means any propellant incorporating beryllium.

(2) ROCKET MOTOR TEST SITE means any building, structure, facility, or installation where the static test firing of a beryllium rocket motor and/or the disposal of beryllium propellant is conducted.

(b) Emission Standard

(1) No person may discharge or cause the discharge of emissions to the atmosphere:

(A) from rocket-motor sites which cause time weighted atmospheric concentrations of beryllium to exceed 75 microgram minutes per cubic meter of air within the limits of ten to 60 minutes, accumulated during any two consecutive weeks, in any area in which an effect adverse to public health could occur; and

(B) if combustion products from the firing of beryllium propellant are collected in a closed tank, emissions from such tank shall not exceed two grams per hour and maximum of ten grams per day.

(c) Monitoring

(1) Ambient air concentrations shall be measured during and after firing of a rocket motor or propellent disposal and in such a manner that the effect of these emissions can be compared with the standard. Such sampling techniques shall be approved by the Air Pollution Control Officer.

(2) All samples shall be analyzed and results shall be calculated within 30 days after samples are taken and before any subsequent rocket motor firing or propellant disposal at the given site. All results shall be reported to the Air Pollution Control Officer by a registered letter dispatched before the close of the next business day following determination of such results.

(3) Records of air sampling test results and other data needed to determine integrated intermittent concentrations shall be retained at the source and made available for inspection by the Air Pollution Control Officer for at least two years.

(4) The Air Pollution Control Officer shall be notified at least 30 days prior to an air sampling test so that he may, at his option, observe the test. At his option the control officer may conduct the required test.

(d) Test Procedure

(1) Sources subject to paragraph (b)(1)(B) of this rule shall be continuously sampled, during release of combustion pro-ducts from the tank, in such a manner that compliance with the standards can be determined. The provisions of Rule 1001 (c) shall apply.

(2) All samples shall be analyzed, and beryllium emissions shall be determined within 30 days after samples are taken and before any subsequent rocket motor firing or propellant disposal at the given site. All determinations shall be reported to the Air Pollution Control Officer by registered letter dispatched before the close of the next business day following such determinations.

(3) Records of emission test results and other data needed to determine total emissions shall be retained at the source and made available for inspection by the Air Pollution Control Officer for a minimum of two years.

(4) The Air Pollution Control Officer shall be notified at least 30 days prior to an emission test so that he may, at his option, observe the test. At his option, the Air Pollution Control Officer may conduct the required test.
