NOTE - THE NOTED DISAPPROVED ITEMS MAY NOT CONSTITUTE A COMPLETE LIST OF VIOLATIONS. THE DESIGNER IS TO CONDUCT A COMPLETE RE-REVIEW OF THE PLANS FOR ADDITIONAL VIOLATIONS OF THE STANDARD COMMENTS AND INCORRECT INFORMATION PRIOR TO RESUBMITTING.
System plans must be picked up within 30 days. All system plans left longer than 30 days will be discarded as abandoned.
THE HERB SHOP - UNIT 110
03020 COLORADO AV
||FYI||RESUBMITTED: The plans have been re-submitted, and the disapproved issues have been addressed as follows:
**PLEASE NOTE** ALL COMMENTS FOUND ON PREVIOUS PLAN REVIEWS REMAIN ENFORCEABLE UNLESS OTHERWISE NOTED IN THIS REVIEW.
1) FOR CO2 GENERATOR: Mechanical EXHAUST VENTILATION is the redesign and installation to mitigate the potential for CO2 gas release. PPRBD mechanical dept. re reviewed and released for permit the ventilation system see plan sheet M1.0. Exhaust fan 2 provided CO2 sensor contorl with adjustable setting set @ 1500 ppm . locate @ 24" AFF and interlockd with EF-2 WITH RTU-2 FAN.
(CO2 sensor interlocked with mechanical exhaust ventilation.)
2) SEE ELECTRONIC DOCUMENTS FOR CHEM INVENTORY, CO2 GENERATOR SPECS, AND CO2 DECLARATION.
3) UL listing: not provided in brochure cut sheets. Plan reviewer contacted website and obtained mfgr website information indicating that products are UL/ETL listed components SEE ELECTRONIC DOCUMENTS.

|Disapproved||CARBON DIOXIDE GENERATOR
PLEASE RESUBMIT PLANS WITH THE MANUFACTURERS SPECIFICATIONS, INSTALLATION MANUALS, INSTRUCTIONS AND "LISTINGS" FOR THIS DEVICE.
PROVIDE MANUFACTURER'S CUT SHEETS
DEMONSTRATE THAT THIS DEVICE IS LISTED FOR PROPANE FUEL ALSO.
** SAFETY INTERLOCKS TO SHUT DOWN AT A SET CONCENTRATION?
|Disapproved||CARBON DIOXIDE GAS DETECTION AND ALARM SYSTEM AND/OR VENTILATION
Facilities shall declare the storage and use of small Insulated Carbon Dioxide Systems used in Beverage Dispensing or similar operations.
*** This facility proposes to install a CO2 GENERATOR FUELED BY PROPANE, therefore, it is required to comply with the 2009 IFC/IMC ONE OF THE FOLLOWING OPTIONS:
1) ventilation requirements for mechanical EXHAUST or
2) ventilation for NATURAL ventilation or
3) provide an approved CO2 gas detection and alarm system in accordance with the following:
a) A Listed (by an approved testing laboratory or organization) gas detection and alarm system that is capable of detecting and notifying the building occupants of a gas release that creates carbon dioxide vapors in excess of its Permissible Exposure Level (PEL) at 5,000 parts per million.
b) The gas detection and alarm system shall initiate an audible alarm within the room or area in which the system is installed. Activation shall sound a local alarm to notify persons responsible for system operation of a hazardous condition in the area where installed.
c) The automatic gas detection and alarm system shall be installed in accordance with the manufacturer's requirements and recommendations. Documentation shall be provided at the time of inspection.
Note: Carbon dioxide is 1.5 times heavier than air. Vapors accumulate in low elevations, and in non-ventilated rooms not necessarily limited to the location of the container. The detector(s) should be located in areas where carbon dioxide from a leak will concentrate. Most manufacturers' gas detection sensors are recommended to be installed 12 inches to 24 inches above floor level. |
SEE ELECTRONIC DOCUMENTS
All materials are below the MAQs and the CSFD annual operational permit thresholds.
No permit required
Due to the CO2 generator device and propane, a Hazardous Materials Construction Inspection is required prior to the Certificate of Occupancy. Please contact the CSFD Div of the Fire Marshal @ 719-385-5978 to schedule the hazradous materials inspection.
*** CARBON DIOXIDE GENERATOR FUELED BY PROPANE
ONE PROPANE CYLINDER @ 4.1 gal w.c. ?
Due to the presence of a CO2 generator ventilation per the IMC AND IFC 2009, may be required or monitoring alarm-detection system per the Administrative Ruling
see ADDITIONAL COMMENTS FOR CO2 REQUREMENTS
*** PPRBD has reviewed and released for permit mechanical plan set. However, the HAZMAT reviewer will need to speak with Mechanical to determine if Mechanical Dept was aware of the presence of Carbon Dioxide. |
|FYI||HAZARDOUS MATERIALS STORAGE CABINETS
Where storage cabinets are used to increase maximum allowable quantity per control area or to comply with chapter 27, such cabinets shall be in accordance with IFC 2009, as amended, Sections 2703.8.7.1 and 2703.8.7.2.
The interior of cabinets shall be treated, coated or constructed of materials that are nonreactive with the hazardous material stored. Such treatment, coating or construction shall include the entire interior of the cabinet. Cabinets shall either be listed in accordance with UL 1275 as suitable for the intended storage or constructed in accordance with the following:
1. Cabinets shall be of steel having a thickness of not less than 0.0478 inch (1.2 mm) (No. 18 gage). The cabinet, including the door, shall be double walled with a 11/2-inch (38 mm) airspace between the walls. Joints shall be riveted or welded and shall be tight fitting. Doors shall be well fitted, self-closing and equipped with a self-latching device.
2. The bottoms of cabinets utilized for the storage of liquids shall be liquid tight to a minimum height of 2 inches (51 mm).
Electrical equipment and devices within cabinets used for the storage of hazardous gases or liquids shall be in accordance with NFPA 70.
Cabinets shall be clearly identified in an approved manner with red letters on a contrasting background to read: HAZARDOUS-KEEP FIRE AWAY.
For spill control and secondary containment for storage in accordance with the exception in Section 2704.2, containment pallets shall comply with all of the following:
1 A liquid-tight sump accessible for visual inspection shall be provided.
2. The sump shall be designed to contain not less than 66 gallons (250 L).

***ATTENTION: MSDS for these materials indicate incompatibilities with certain materials/chemicals. Pay close attention to the Oxidizers --- separate from other materials.
*** Recommend approved storage cabinets and secondary containment pallets for the storage of on site materials.|
|FYI||Persons responsible for the operation of areas in which hazardous materials are stored, dispensed, handled or used shall be familiar with the chemical nature of the materials and the appropriate mitigating actions necessary in the event of a fire, leak or spill.
