3745-68-77 Monitoring and inspections.

The owner or operator shall conduct, at a minimum, the following monitoring and inspections when thermally treating hazardous waste:

(A) Existing instruments which relate to temperature and emission control (if an emission control device is present) shall be monitored at least every fifteen minutes. Appropriate corrections to maintain steady state or other appropriate thermal treatment conditions shall be made immediately either automatically or by the operator. Instruments which relate to temperature and emission control include those measuring waste feed, auxiliary fuel feed, treatment process temperature, and relevant process flow and level controls.

(B) The stack plume (emissions), where present, shall be observed visually at least hourly for normal appearance, color and opacity. The operator shall immediately make any indicated operating corrections necessary to return any visible emissions to their normal appearance.

(C) The complete thermal treatment process and associated equipment, including, but not limited to, pumps, valves, conveyors and pipes, shall be inspected at least daily for leaks, spills, and fugitive emissions, and all emergency shutdown controls and system alarms shall be checked to assure proper operation.
