Additionally, your state’s department of environmental quality (DEQ) has provided you the following PBR limits:
Potential to Emit (PTE) 100 tons VOC/year Face Velocity 100 ft/min Filter Velocity 250 ft/min VOC/5-hour period 6.0 lbs/hr Short-term Emissions 1.0 lbs/hr Long-term Emissions 1.0 tons/yr
From your first visit with your client, these are your notes and process flow sketch reflecting the intended operational design:
- The client has designed an interior coating spray painting system that allows the interior of each unit to be coated.
- The operations will involve a stripped-down unit being brought into the facility’s shop.
- The shop is a steel building with a finished concrete floor and a paint booth for each unit.
- The unit will be placed in the spray booth.
- The booth will be opened at one end of the booth for makeup air.
- The exhaust air will flow through an exhaust chamber at the other end of the unit.
- For each unit, once the liner application operations are completed, the forced curing (drying) operations will immediately commence.
- Closely read the required reading assignment from the textbook and the unit lesson within the study guide, and consider reading the suggested reading.
- Select the PBR evaluation document to be for only one of the following: (a) an aircraft manufacturing exterior coating paint booth, (b) a rail tank car interior lining process, or (c) a vehicle exterior coating paint booth. You will continue with this scenario selection for the remaining six units, to complete the entire document.
- Using APA style (title page, abstract page, body with level 1 headings, and a reference page) for a research paper, begin drafting a PBR evaluation document. You will add to this document in every subsequent unit with another prescribed level 1 heading, building out the entire document one section at a time.
- Make your Unit II work the first level 1 heading (center, bold) titled “General Considerations for Operation,” and describe the scenario that is presented above, while specifically describing the scenario that you selected (aircraft, tank car, or vehicle). While describing your scenario, you must include the environmental, health, and safety (EHS) implications of the work system while pulling from the textbook as well as any other relevant sources that are presented in the unit lesson in the study guide. In your description of the EHS implications of the system, be sure to discuss the natural and anthropomorphic variables causally related to outdoor air pollution. You are required to describe the scenario in at least 200 words (minimum). You may find it convenient to summarize the tabulated information in your General Considerations section of the permit for future reference throughout the rest of the course, but do not attempt to tabulate the information in the exact order as what is presented here (to avoid a high match in SafeAssign).
- Also under the first level 1 heading, present a box and line process flow diagram (PFD) drawing of the selected scenario. See the drawing on page 375 of the textbook as an additional example of a PFD if you need assistance understanding how to draw one; do not draw the same system that is provided on that page. Do not hand-draw this, but use the “insert” and “shapes” features within Microsoft Word to construct the PFD. Simple labeled boxes and lines are adequate for this preliminary work, so it is not necessary to present specific shapes in your PFD for your selected scenario.
- In your abstract section (page 2 of the document), write one or two sentences that reflect your work for this unit. We will be adding one sentence per unit to reflect our work as we go, with the final abstract length being about 8 to 10 sentences long.
