The report presents an overview of the ferrous foundry characteristics and state and local regulatory practices which affect the evaluation of foundry compliance with air pollution regulations. Ferrous foundries are described with respect to size, location, investment trends, and process equipment. Particulate emission factors are developed for cupolas and electric arc furnaces as well as the process fugitive emissions sources. Techniques are described for controlling emissions from cupolas, electric arc furnaces, pouring and cooling, shakeout, sand handling and the cleaning room. Emphasis is placed on identification of malfunction problems associated with these control measures, and operation and maintenance practices that can be used to reduce the incidence of malfunctions. The regulations which are applied to ferrous foundries by state and local agencies are identified.
