  • The paper summarizes results of research conducted to determine the capability of various dry paint overspray arrestor systems to capture particles as small as about 1 micrometer in surface diameter. The testing used an optical particle counter to determine the concentration of particles of a given size fraction to penetrate a test arrestor system.
  • The National Ignition Facility (NIF), currently under design and construction at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (LLNL), will be the world`s largest laser when complete. The NIF will use about 8,000 large optics of 41 different types to focus up to 192 laser beams on a dime-size target. Each laser component will be packaged into a line-replaceable unit (LRU) made up of a mechanical housing, laser optics (lenses and mirrors), utilities, actuators, and kinematic mounts. Given the constraints of the operating environment, such as high cleanliness and limited space, the tasks associated with LRU interchange require unique and flexible hardware systemmore » designs. This paper introduces the Optical Transport and Material Handling designs that will be used to deliver the LRUs in the NIF Laser Bays. These systems use a novel and versatile automated guided vehicle (AGV) for transport. The transport and handling hardware is being designed to allow autonomous, semiautonomous, and manual operations.« less
  • During recent years, greater emphasis has been placed on the control of particulate emissions from painting operations. This has gained importance as more is learned about the potential release of toxic metals to the atmosphere from painting operations. This has led to queries about the efficiency of various painting arrestor systems to reduce particulate discharges to the atmosphere. Even more important is the capability of the arrestor systems to control PM-10 emissions. In 1995, the USEPA initiated a study to evaluate various dry paint overspray arrestor systems. This study was designed to evaluate, not only the total emissions control capabilitymore » of the arrestor, but also the PM-10 control capability of the various system designs. Paint overspray arrestor systems using five different filtration concepts and/or materials were selected. They include systems constructed of fiberglass, paper, styrofoam, and cardboard. These systems used filtration techniques incorporating the following filtration phenomena and designs: cyclone, baffle, bag systems, and mesh systems. The testing used an optical particle counting procedure to determine the concentration of particles of a given size fraction to penetrate a test arrestor system. The results of the testing indicated that there are significant differences in the efficiency of the tested system designs to capture and retain PM-10. This paper summarizes the results of the research conducted to determine the capability of the arrestor systems to capture particulate of particle sizes down to approximately 1 {micro}m in surface diameter.« less
  • In October of 1996, the EPA released the draft Aerospace NESHAP regulation that targets hazardous air pollutant (HAP) emissions from aerospace manufacturing and rework operations. One of the key provisions focuses on the control of inorganic HAPs released from application operations involving hexavalent chromium based primers. The NESHAP regulation mandates that coating facilities which release inorganic HAPS meet specific particulate emission control efficiencies or requirements, and further specifies different control requirements for new and existing facilities. The provisions pertaining to inorganic HAP emissions from coating operations were developed through the efforts of many individuals from the industrial, military, manufacturing, andmore » regulatory sectors, and were the subject of intense discussion that spanned a period of years. Throughout this process, a topic of major debate was the development of dry filter particulate control efficiency requirements that would achieve an appropriate level of emission control, and could reasonably met by manufacturers and filter suppliers alike. The control requirements that are the topic of this paper mandate specific collection efficiencies for various particle size ranges. Recent studies on particle size characteristics of overspray generated by hexavalent chrome primer applications indicate that the NESHAP standard may not achieve the level of emission control that was initially intended. This paper presents the results of a detailed, third party analysis that focuses on the actual control efficiencies for chromate-based priming operations that will be achieved by the new standard. Following a general filtration efficiency discussion, an overview of the procedure employed to evaluate the overall efficiencies that will be achieved by NESHAP compliant filters is provided. The data upon which the evaluation was derived are presented.« less
  • A New Paint Spray Booth System that dramatically reduces air volumes normally required for capturing and controlling paint overspray that contains either Volatile Organic Compounds (VOC) or Hazardous Air Pollutants (HAP), or both. In turn, a substantial reduction in capital equipment expenditures for air abatement systems and air make-up heaters as well as related annual operating expenses is realized.
