The report describes in detail the source testing, construction, and data reduction/analysis activities that comprise the three phases of a technology demonstration program. Phase I consisted of a detailed baseline evaluation of several paint spray booths operated at the Barstow (California) Marine Corps Logistics Base to establish key operating parameters and air toxic emission profiles. This information was used to design a safe recirculation/flow partitioning system for the paint booths involved in the study to efficiently reduce the overall exhaust flow rate. Under Phase II, the necessary booth construction and retrofit modifications were made, and the air pollution control device was installed. The recirculation/flow partitioning system was tested extensively as part of the Phase III effort to ensure that the booths operated in accordance with health and safety standards mandated by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) and the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA).
