Slide 2

AP-42 Continuous Drop Equation versus Stack Testing Why Is It Important? Hillsborough County 7 Largest Port in United States PM-RACT Title V/PSD Applicability-PTE & Actuals Rule 62-210(242)"Potential to Emit", F.A.C.- the most extreme limit of an emanation unit or office to discharge a poison under its physical and operational outline . Any physical or operational or operational impediment on the limit of the outflow unit or office to transmit a toxin, including air contamination control gear and confinements on hours of operation or on the sort or measure of material combusted, put away, or prepared , should be dealt with as a major aspect of its outline if the constraint or the impact it would have on discharges is governmentally enforceable.

AP-42 Continuous Drop Equation versus Stack Testing Why Is It Important? Title V/PSD Applicability-PTE & Actuals- Rule 62-210.370, F.A.C. requires the utilization of the most precise strategy: CEM Mass Balance EF based upon site-particular Stack Testing (eg. lb/ton) Published EF specifically relevant to the procedure EF based upon a comparative, however unique process
