RE>Painting Problems 4/28/97
Is the company baking off solvents in the ovens? If so, this could be considered disposal of the solvents to the air. If the paint contains TCLP characteristic solvents, the filters may pick these up. If the filters would fail the TCLP (before baking) then the act of baking them off may run the company afoul of all kinds of rules.

One company runs filters through their ovens to bake them dry.
(I'm unsure, but doubt if any energy recovery is performed
directly from the oven.) Dried filters were carefully checked by
the landfill, and Department inspectors, to insure any
characteristic of ignitability (at the core of the filter) was not
a concern (in addition to metal, etc.). Possibly, the filters
were handled separately, after normal production, and/or run
through twice to insure the result.
Hope this helps,
