Process Heater/Furnace Attributes
General:
This form is used to provide a description and data pertaining to all process heaters and furnaces with potentially
applicable requirements associated with a particular regulated entity number and application. Each table number, along
with the possibility of a corresponding letter (i.e., Table 1a, Table 1b), corresponds to a certain state or federal rule. If the
rule on the table is not potentially applicable to a process heater and furnace, then it should be left blank and need not be
submitted with the application. The following process heaters and furnaces are considered off-permit sources and do not
need to be listed:
A.
In counties affected by Title 30 Texas Administrative Code Chapter 117 (30 TAC Chapter 117), water
heaters, process heaters, and furnaces that do not fire liquid or solid fuel and have a maximum rated capacity
less than 1.0 MMBtu/hr, unless the unit is placed in service after June 9, 1993, as a functionally identical
replacement for existing units subject to the provisions 30 TAC Chapter 117, Subchapter B.
B.
In counties not affected by 30 TAC Chapter 117, process heaters and furnaces with a heat input capacity less
than or equal to 40 MMBtu/hr that do not fire liquid or solid fuel.
C.
In counties not affected by 30 TAC Chapter 117, water heaters with a heat input capacity less than
10 MMBtu/hr and do not fire liquid or solid fuel.
If the codes entered by the applicant show negative applicability to the rule or sections of the rule represented on the table,
then the applicant need not complete the remainder of the table(s) that corresponds to the rule. Further instruction as to
which questions should be answered and which questions should not be answered are located in the “Specific” section of

OP-UA05 Instructions
Notwithstanding any qualification criteria in the form instructions or information provided in other TCEQ
guidance, the applicant may leave an attribute question blank (or indicate “N/A” for “Not Applicable”) if the
attribute is not needed for the applicable requirement determinations of a regulation for a unit.
In some situations, the applicant has the option of selecting alternate requirements, limitations, and/or practices for a unit.
Note that these alternate requirements, limitations, and/or practices must have the required approval from the TCEQ
Executive Director and/or the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Administrator before the federal operating
permit application is submitted.
The Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ) requires that a Core Data Form be submitted on all incoming
registrations unless all of the following are met: the Regulated Entity and Customer Reference Numbers have been issued
by the TCEQ and no core data information has changed. The Central Registry, a common record area of the TCEQ,
maintains information about TCEQ customers and regulated activities, such as company names, addresses, and telephone
numbers. This information is commonly referred to as “core data.” The Central Registry provides the regulated
community with a central access point within the agency to check core data and make changes when necessary. When
core data about a facility is moved to the Central Registry, two new identification numbers are assigned: the Customer
Reference (CN) number and the Regulated Entity (RN) number. The Core Data Form is required if facility records are not
yet part of the Central Registry or if core data for a facility has changed. If this is the initial registration, permit, or license
for a facility site, then the Core Data Form must be completed and submitted with application or registration forms. If
amending, modifying, or otherwise updating an existing record for a facility site, the Core Data Form is not required,
unless any core data information has changed. To review additional information regarding the Central Registry, go to the
TCEQ website at www.tceq.texas.gov/permitting/central_registry.
