PM10HVLP spray gun application equipment (or equivalent, or other application methods listed in Rule 4603)Enclosed paint spray booth with particulate filters and utilizing an HVLP spray gun
VOCCoating with a VOC content of 2.8 lb/gal (less water and exempt compounds) or less; HVLP (or equivalent) spray equipmenta) 98% control (thermal incineration, catalytic incineration, or equal) b) 95% control (carbon adsorption or equal) c) 90% control (regenerative thermal/catalytic incineration or equal)


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.
