Special Coating Emission Control System At Goulds Pumps ITT Industries
MetadataShow full item record
The Clean Air Act Amendments of 1990 required significant changes for users of industrial paints and coatings. New York State requires users of highly volatile coatings to meet additional regulations, and apply for special permits and variances. In 1996, Goulds Pumps ITT Industries of Seneca Falls, NY with the assistance of the New York State Energy Research and Development Authority began a project with the goal of finding a way to use waterborne coatings for the majority of their applications. When it was absolutely necessary to use volatile coatings, Goulds wished to do so in the most environmentally friendly manner possible. Goulds discovered that Optimum Air Corporation manufactured energy-efficient, environmentally compliant paint booth systems (Rapid Dry System™) for use in industrial waterborne painting and coating. The system enables users to comply with regulations, save energy and increase productivity through faster drying times. However, these systems were designed for only waterborne coatings and Goulds needed to modify the filter system and develop an emissions monitoring system to allow use of volatile coatings when necessary.
