Using Dust Collection to Comply with EPA NESHAP Rule 6X
The EPA National Emission Standard for Hazardous Air Pollutants (NESHAP) Rule 6x went into effect in the summer of 2011. This rule encompasses all manufacturing processes using materials that contain 0.1% by weight cadmium, chromium, lead, or nickel – or 1.0% by weight manganese, which is virtually a universal component of welding wire. Simply stated, there can be no visible emissions (zero opacity) from these processes.
At the time of this writing, many companies remain unaware of the rule. NESHAP Rule 6x is highly applicable to welding shops, it is in force now, and everyone engaged in welding needs to be knowledgeable about the required actions. Does Rule 6x apply to your facility? What are the required monitoring and test methods for compliance? What types of dust collection equipment can be used? Answers to these and other questions can be found in this white paper titled, The New EPA National Emission Standard for Hazardous Air Pollutants (NESHAP), Rule 6X:Are You Compliant?
