Recombinant battery neutralization. For VRLA or other types of sealed batteries with immobilized electrolyte, the method and material shall be capable of neutralizing a spill of 3.0 percent of the capacity of the largest cell or block in the room to a pH between 5.0 and 9.0. batteries shall not require neutralization. Exception: Lithium-ion and lithium metal polymer When used as an alternative to 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). 3.

The minimum size of the Hazard Placard shall be 15" by 15". This requirement is subject to verification at the time of the Hazardous materials Inspection prior to signing the Fire Final.
AttentionNOTE TO FIRE INSPECTOR: Prior to scheduling the Fire Final please contact the Hazardous Materials Inspector to arrange a Hazardous Materials Inspection prior to final signature being provided.
FYIINDOOR SECONDARY CONTAINMENT REQUIREMENTS - PART 1 OF 2 Secondary containment shall be provided to prevent a leaking or failed primary container and associated fire suppression water from spreading throughout an area. The building, room or area shall contain or drain the hazardous materials and fire-protection water through the use of one of the following methods: 1. Liquid-tight sloped or recessed floors, 2. Liquid-tight floors provided with liquid-tight raised or recessed sills or dikes, 3. Sumps and collection systems, or 4. Drainage systems leading to an approved location. 5. Integrated, listed secondary containment (listed double walled tank) Incompatible materials shall be separated from each other in the secondary containment system. Secondary containment shall be designed to contain a spill from the largest vessel plus the design flow volume of fire-protection water calculated to discharge from the fire-extinguishing system over the minimum required system design area or area of the room or area in which the storage is located, whichever is smaller, for a period of 20 minutes. A monitoring method shall be provided to detect hazardous materials in the secondary containment system. The monitoring method is allowed to be visual inspection of the primary or secondary containment, or other approved means.
