PM10Enclosed paint booth with dry filters and use of HVLP spray guns
VOCThe use of HVLP spray guns, an enclosed gun cleaner, and low-VOC coatings (2.8 lb VOC/gal, as applied, less water and exempt solvents)1. Thermal oxidation with an enclosed booth (100% capture efficiency). 2. Catalytic oxidation with an enclosed booth (100% capture efficiency). 3. Carbon adsorption with an enclosed booth (100% capture efficiency). 4. The use of HVLP spray guns, an enclosed gun cleaner, and low-VOC coatings (1.1 lb VOC/gal, as applied, less water and exempt solvents)


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.
