Application ID:

9-2940-00030/02001

Permit(s) Applied for:

Article 19 Air Title V Facility

Project is Located:

Wheatfield, Niagara County

Project Description:

The Department has prepared a draft permit and has made a tentative determination to issue a renewed Title V Air permit for the Metaullics Division of Pyrotek, an existing industrial facility that manufactures graphite, carbon and ceramic products for industrial applications.& The facility is located in Sanborn, New York. Typical products are graphite tubes and rods used in aluminum and chemical industry. Ceramic components used in high temperature industrial applications and bonded particle filters used to purify aluminum are also produced at the facility. Current operations consist of mixing of raw carbonaceous materials; extrusion, baking of extruded shapes, pitch/resin impregnation, machining, and graphitizing using electrically heated furnaces. Control equipment consists of baghouse dust collectors for mixing, machining, packing and loading operations. Emissions from the carbon/graphite baking operations are controlled by natural gas fired incinerators.

The facility emits greater than 100 tons of carbon monoxide emissions per year and is therefore a major source subject to 40 CFR Part 70 Title V permitting requirements. This Title V permit represents the monitoring requirements for the current process sources and also includes a prototype dust collection system to control emissions from the existing carbon bake furnaces now controlled by a fume incinerator and directed to emission point 001-3. Work practices are also incorporated to minimize emissions from the impregnation and autoclave operations. Maintenance programs for the incinerators and baghouse have also been incorporated into this permit.

In accordance with 6NYCRR Parts 621.7(b)(9) and 201-6.3(c), the Administrator of the United States Environmental Protection Agency (USEPA) has the authority to bar issuance of any Title V Facility Permit if it is determined not to be in compliance with applicable requirements of the Clean Air Act or 6NYCRR Part 201.

Persons wishing to inspect the subject Title V files, including the application with all relevant supporting materials, the draft permit, and all other materials available to the DEC (the "permitting authority") that are relevant to this permitting decision should contact the DEC representative listed below. The Draft Permit and Permit Review Report may be viewed and printed from the Department web site at: http://www.dec.ny.gov/chemical/32249.html.

DEC will evaluate the application and the comments received on it to determine whether to hold a public hearing. Comments and requests for a public hearing should be in writing and addressed to the Department representative listed below. A copy of the Department's permit hearing procedures is available upon request or on the Department web site at: http://www.dec.ny.gov/permits/6234.html.
