Metal Parts and Products Coating Operations (using specialty coatings as defined by Rule 4603)
Pollutant Achieved in Practice or in the SIP Technologically Feasible Alternate Basic Equipment
PM10Enclosed paint spray booth with particulate filters and HVLP application equipment (or other application methods listed in Rule 4603)
VOCUsing coatings with a VOC content of 3.5 lb/gal (less water and exempt compounds) or less, using HVLP spray equipment (or other application methods listed in Rule 4603), and using an enclosed spray gun cleaning system1. VOC capture and control with thermal/catalytic incineration using coatings with a VOC content of 3.5 lb/gal (less water and exempt compounds) or less 2. VOC capture and control with thermal/catalytic incineration using coatings which are uncontrolled for this type of operation and category of source - VOC content of 5.2 lb/gal (less water and exempt compounds) or less 3. VOC capture and control with carbon adsorption using coatings with a VOC content of 3.5 lb/gal (less water and exempt compounds) or less 4. VOC capture and control with carbon adsorption using coatings which are uncontrolled for this type of operation and category of source - VOC content of 5.2 lb/gal (less water and exempt compounds) or less


BACT is the most stringent control technique for the emissions unit and class of source. Control techniques that are not achieved in practice or contained in s a state implementation plan must be cost effective as well as feasible. Economic analysis to demonstrate cost effectiveness is requried for all determinations that are not achieved in practice or contained in an EPA approved State Implementation Plan.

This is a Summary Page for this Class of Source. For background information, see Permit Specific BACT Determinations on Details Page.
