A burnout oven is an enclosed insulated oven that has an exposed heating element. Products are put in the oven to clean or cure a product. The most common burnout oven is a brick kiln. Burnout ovens produce emissions by heating products that release VOCs at high temperatures.
A permit is required for all burnout ovens with a rated heat input capacity of 1 million BTU per hour or greater or that are not fired exclusively on purchased quality natural gas, liquid petroleum gas, or any combination thereof.
Each burnout oven will be permitted individually if rated at 1 million BTU per hour or greater.
A permit is required if the aggregate rated heat input capacity of all burnout ovens used in the same process is 1 million BTU per hour or greater.
For modifications of permitted equipment resulting in an increase in boiler rating, the fee is assessed in accordance with fee schedule 2 (see Rule 301, Section 308.3)based on the incremental increase in BTU/hr resulting from such change.
For modifications resulting in no increase in rating, the fee shall be based on Rule 301, Section 306.2.
