Albuquerque SIP: Part 65 (Reg 11. Organic Fluids) SIP effective 1980-04-10 to 2005-02-28
SECTION 11. ORGANIC FLUIDS
(Approved by EPA 04/10/80 (45 FR 24468) at 52.1620(c)(11) effective 04/10/80.)
11.01 STORAGE OF ORGANIC FLUIDS. A person shall not load, store, or hold in any stationary container of more than 40,000 gallons capacity, any organic fluid having a vapor pressure of 1.5 psia or greater under actual storage conditions, unless such a container is a pressure vessel maintaining working pressures sufficient at all times to prevent organic fluid loss to the atmosphere, or designed and equipped with one of the following vapor loss control devices, properly installed, in good working order and in operation.
A. A floating roof, consisting of a pontoon type or doubledeck type roof, resting on the surface of the fluid contents and equipped with a closure seal, or seals, to close the space between the roof edge and container wall. The control equipment provided for in this paragraph shall not be used if the organic fluid has a vapor pressure of 9.0 psia or greater under actual storage conditions. All container gauging and sampling devices shall be gas-tight except when gauging or sampling is taking place.
B. A vapor recovery system, consisting of a vapor gathering system capable of collecting any vapors and gases discharged and a vapor disposal system capable of processing such vapors and gases so as to prevent their emission to the atmosphere with all container gauging and sampling devices gas-tight except when gauging or sampling is taking place.
C. Other equipment of equal efficiency, provided such equipment is approved by the Director.
11.02 ORGANIC FLUID LOADING. A person shall not load organic fluids having a vapor pressure of 1.5 psia or greater under actual loading conditions into any tank, truck, trailer, or railroad tank car from any loading facility unless the loading facility is equipped with a vapor collection and disposal system or its equivalent approved by the Director.
Loading shall be accomplished in such a manner that displaced vapor and air will be vented only to the vapor collection system. Measures shall be taken to prevent fluid drainage from the loading device when it is not in use or to accomplish complete drainage before the loading device is disconnected.
The vapor disposal portion of the vapor collection and disposal system shall consist of one of the following:
A. A vapor recovery of disposal system which, by absorption and/or condensation, will recover or dispose of at least 90 percent by weight of the vapors and gases in a saturated stream at the inlet of the recovery or disposal system, such that total vapor emission to the atmosphere does not exceed 1.24 pounds per 1,000 gallons of organic liquid transferred to the equipment being controlled.
B. Other equipment of an efficiency equal to or greater than subsection 11.02A if approved by the Director.
This subsection shall apply only to the loading of organic fluids having a vapor pressure of 1.5 psia or greater under actual loading conditions at a facility from which at least 20,000 gallons of such organic fluids are loaded per day averaged over 30 consecutive days.
"Loading facility", for the purpose of this subsection, shall mean any aggregate or combination of organic fluid loading equipment which is both (1) possessed by one person, and (2) located so that all the organic fluid loading outlets for such aggregation or combination of loading equipment can be encompassed within any circle of 300 feet in diameter.
11.03 ORGANIC FLUID LOADING INTO CONTAINERS
A. No person shall, after the effective date of these regulations, load or permit the loading of any organic fluid, having a vapor pressure of 1.5 psia or greater, into any stationary container with a capacity of 3,000 gallons or more, unless such container is equipped with an approved vapor loss control device, including a submerged fill pipe, and unless the displaced vapors from the storage container are either contained or are processed by a system that does not allow final emission to the atmosphere to exceed 1.15 pounds of organic compounds per 1,000 gallons of organic liquid loaded.
B. No person shall, after the effective date of these regulations, load or permit the loading of any organic fluid having a vapor pressure of 1.5 psia or greater, into any stationary container with a capacity greater than 500 gallons and less than 3,000 gallons unless each container is equipped with a securely fastened submerged fill pipe or an approved vapor recovery system.
C. For the purpose of this subsection, the term "submerged fill pipe" is defined as any fill pipe the discharge opening of which is entirely submerged when the fluid level is 6 inches above the bottom of the container.
11.04 For the purposes of Section (AQCR) 11, "stationary container" shall mean any aggregation or combination of containers which are both (1) possessed by one person, and (2) located so that any portion of such aggregation or combination of containers can be encompassed within any circle of 300 feet diameter, and (3) (for Section 11.03A only) has an annual total volume of use and/or sale in excess of 100,000 gallons of organic fluid having a vapor pressure of 1.5 psia or greater.
11.05 Subsection 11.02 shall apply only to facilities whose construction commenced after September 1, 1973. Deleted effective October 1, 1976.
11.06 Any transportable container of organic fluids which are subject to this section shall be sealed to prevent the entrance of ambient air into the container when transporting or unloading fluid. This subsection shall not apply to unloading into stationary containers of less than 3,000 gallons capacity.
11.08 CUTBACK ASPHALT
A. Beginning July 1, 1979, no person shall cause, allow, or permit the use of cutback asphalt in quantities greater than 100 pounds per application directly onto existing or new paved surfaces without first obtaining a permit for such use from the department.
B. The director of the Environmental Health Department may only issue a permit to use cutback asphalt if he determines, based on information supplied by the applicant that less than 25 tons per year of volatile organic compounds will be emitted to the ambient air as a result of the activities approved under the permit.
C. As used in this subsection "Cutback Asphalt" means asphalt cement or other paving material which has been diluted or blended with petroleum solvents such as kerosine, naphtha, diesel oil, gasoline, or similar petroleum distillate products.
D. Penetrate Uses - For the purposes of this subsection, asphalt cement cut with naphtha for the purposes of getting surface penetration into existing driveway and parking lot surfaces shall be exempt from the requirements of paragraphs A and B. However, this exemption does not apply between the dates of June 15 through September 15. During the period of June 15 through September 15 a permit for such operation shall be required and the department shall consider the annual 25 ton limitation to apply entirely within the three month span of the requirement.
Subsection 11.08 adopted by the Albuquerque-Bernalillo county Air Quality control Board on December 15, 1978.
