The Naval Air Systems Command Depot NADEP facility located on the Naval Air Station NAS North Island, San Diego, CA currently has five 5 hard chrome plating tanks in operation. The facility typically plates 3-5 million amp-hours per year and is identified as a Small Hard Chromium Electroplating Facility by the San Diego Air Pollution Control District. This presentation addresses the implementation of encapsulating tank covers, hereafter referred to as the Chrome Plating Emission Elimination Device EED, on the NADEPs hard chrome plating process tanks, as an alternate control devise used to eliminate Cr6 emissions to the outside environment, reduce operating costs, and provide enhanced operator safety and exposure in the chrome plating facility.
