Abstract
The report presents the results of an investigation into the performance and operation of vapor phase carbon adsorption systems. The investigation was initiated as a result of comments recieved by the E.P.A. in reference to the draft new source performance standards (NSPS) for control of VOC emissions from the manufacture of magnetic tape. In order to respond to these comments, the EPA requested additional information from manufacturers and users of carbon adsorber systems to further investigate system performance and costs. The EPA also again reviewed information obtained from previous studies by the agency. Section 2 presents the conclusions of the study. Section 3 presents a description of the vapor phase adsorption process, discusses impacts of changes in inlet vent stream characteristics on adsorber performance, and presents supporting test data. Section 4 presents a description of the carbon adsorber system which the commenter used as a basis for developing their comments, and a discussion of the design and operation of that system.
