AW-LAKE COMPANY customized a Flow Management and Reporting Solution that automated EPA compliance of VOC emissions for an OEM manufacturer’s paint operations at three regional plants in Ohio. To more accurately report VOC emissions as required by the state, the OEM manufacturer wanted to replace manual methods of gathering and recording data that often resulted in inaccurate overages with an automated process that tracked paint usage and calculated VOC emissions while populating EPA reports for electronic submission. The company also wanted visibility into daily operations as it never knew which plants performed within VOC emission limits on any given day.
AW-Lake developed an automated flow management and reporting solution that integrated its TCM 0650 TRICOR Coriolis mass flow meters with customized logic controllers and EPA-reporting software to accurately track, calculate, and report VOC emissions. The TRICOR mass flow meters also monitor paint flow rates, temperature and density as part of quality control.
