[Comment: For dates of non-regulatory government publications, publications of recognized organizations and associations, federal rules, and federal statutory provisions referenced in this rule, see the last paragraph of rule 3745-105-01 of the Administrative Code titled"Reference to materials."]

(A) Each incinerator unit burning pathological waste shall be equipped with a continuous temperature recorder for the primary and secondary combustion chambers.

(B) Each pathological waste incinerator with a capacity greater than one thousand pounds per hour shall be equipped with a continuous carbon monoxide monitor and alarm. The alarm shall indicate whenever concentrations exceed one hundred fifty parts per million.

(C) All facilities that operate a pathological waste incinerator shall install, maintain and operate a radioactivity monitor and alarm. The radioactivity monitor shall be installed to monitor all pathological waste prior to combustion.

(D) Any pathological waste incinerator that is equipped with a bypass stack shall be equipped with a device to continuously monitor and record the temperature in the bypass stack.

(E) The owner or operator of a pathological waste incinerator shall install a scale, accurate to within one pound, near any pathological waste incinerator to weigh all of the material charged to the unit. The owner or operator of a pathological waste incinerator shall maintain a written log to record the amount of material charged to any unit on a pounds per hour or a pounds per batch basis. Alternative arrangements may be approved by the director provided they can be shown to be of equivalent effectiveness as a method of regulating flow into the incinerator and generating a permanent record of charging rates.

(F) Each incinerator with a capacity greater than one thousand pounds per hour shall be equipped with a continuous opacity monitor unless otherwise exempted by the director because of the influence of condensed water vapor in the stack exit gas.

(G) Any continuous opacity or carbon monoxide monitor required under this rule shall be installed and maintained in accordance with 40 CFR Part 60.
