(4) If add-on air pollution control equipment is used to meet this rule, the following emissions testing shall be applicable:

(a) The general provisions specified under paragraphs (A)(2) to (A)(5) of rule 3745-21-10 of the Administrative Code shall apply to compliance testing.

(b) The test methods and procedures of paragraph (C) of rule 3745-21-10 of the Administrative Code shall be followed.

For the purpose of demonstrating compliance with the emission control requirements of paragraph (C)(2) or (C)(3) of this rule, the affected source shall be run at typical operating conditions and flow rates compatible with scheduled production during any emission testing.

(5) For an owner or operator that elects, in accordance with paragraph (F)(3)(b)(ii) of this rule, to monitor the inlet temperature only of the catalytic incinerator, an inspection and maintenance plan shall be developed, maintained on-site, and made readily available upon the request of the appropriate Ohio EPA district office or local air agency. At a minimum, the plan shall include the following:

(a) Annual sampling and analysis of the catalyst activity (i.e., conversion efficiency) following the manufacturer's or catalyst supplier's recommended procedures.

(b) Monthly inspection of the oxidizer system including the burner assembly and fuel supply lines for problems.
