Capture efficiency definition

Capture efficiency means the weight per unit time of VOC entering a capture system and delivered to a control device divided by the weight per unit time of total VOC generated by a source of VOC, expressed as a percentage.
Capture efficiency means the fraction of all organic vapors generated by a process that are directed to a control device.

Examples of Capture efficiency in a sentence

  • Capture efficiency of chair-side traps and filtersWe assumed that chair-side traps and filters capture 78% of mercury in amalgam discharged in dental office wastewater, in accordance with our previous SA.

  • CE = Capture efficiency of the emission capture system vented to the add-on control device, percent.

  • Capture efficiency of POTWsAs stated in the previous SA, approximately 95% of mercury entering a POTW will be removed and not discharged with effluent.

  • Capture efficiency of amalgam separatorsFor purposes of this calculation, we assumed that amalgam separators capture 99.2% of particles exhibiting a size distribution of that presented in ISO11143, which is the median efficiency of separators as presented by ERG10.

Capture efficiency means the amount of regulated pollutant collected and routed to an air pollution control device divided by the amount of total emissions generated by the process being controlled.
Capture efficiency means, for purposes of 35 Ill. Adm. Code 218 and 219, the weight of VOM entering a capture system and delivered to a control device divided by the weight of VOM generated by an emission unit, during a particular time period, expressed as a percentage.
Capture efficiency means the ratio of VOC emissions delivered to the control device to the total VOC emissions resulting from spray application equipment cleaning, expressed as a percentage;
Capture efficiency means the percentage by weight of affected pollutants delivered to a control device divided by the weight of total affected pollutants generated by the source.
Capture efficiency means the weight per unit time of a pollutant entering a capture system and delivered to a control device, divided by the weight per unit time of the total pollutant generated by a source of the pollutant, expressed as a percentage. The capture efficiency reflects how much of the pollutant is captured and routed to the control device.
