This facility will require a Hazardous Materials permit inspection for: ** Annual Operational Hazmat Permit (annual, automatically renewed by CSFD, fees apply To schedule your Hazmat Inspections-- please contact the Divsion of the Fire Marshal @ 719-385-5978.
FYIStationary Battery Systems IFC 2009, SECTION 608 Stationary storage battery systems having an electrolyte capacity of more than 50 gallons for flooded lead-acid, nickel cadmium (Ni-Cd) and valve-regulated lead-acid (VRLA), or 1,000 pounds for lithium-ion and lithium metal polymer, used for facility standby power, emergency power or uninterrupted power supplies shall comply with section 608 and Table 608.1.
FYIATTENTION BATTERIES CONTINUED: Ventilation shall be provided in accordance with the International Mechanical Code and the following: 1. For flooded lead-acid, flooded Ni-Cd and VRLA batteries, the ventilation system shall be designed to limit the maximum concentration of hydrogen to 1.0 percent of the total volume of the room; or 2. Continuous ventilation shall be provided at a rate of not less than 1 cubic foot per minute per square foot (1 ft3/ min/ft2) [0.0051 m3/s # m2] of floor area of the room. Per Plan reviewer and Mr. Rutledge 2/23/12 Plan reviewer called this section out to Mr. Rutledge and requested where shown on plans?: 608.6.3 Mechanical ventilation systems shall be supervised at an approved central proprietary or remote station service or shall initiate an audible and visual signal at a constantly attended on-site location. ATTENTION ****** THIS IS REQUIRED TO BE COMPLIANT WITH CODE *** This section requires the supervision of both the required room and cabinets ventilation where mechanical systems are employed to provide notification of a system failure--to provide warning and reduce hydrogen concentration to build to hazardous levels. Per Mr Rutledge: Plan sheets BA 508 and M111 (not in HM package, dated 2/14/12) shows mechanical system exhaust fans and that system is alarmed signalling both visual and audible; per Mr. Rutledge--system is compliant with IFC. ATTENTION ****Alarms, monitoring and detection devices shall be tested at the time of inspection. see addtional comments. Please have all contractors, vendors, and applicable equipment and personnel available at the time of inspection.
E-MailBattery Chargers Generator Building Battery chargers were noted within generator buildings adjacent to generators. Per Mr. Rutledge 2/23/12 the chargers will charge the needed batteries for the generators. **** Per Plan reviewer, ensure that this area shall comply with ventilation and requirements setforth in Chapter 3, IFC 2009, as amended: 309.2, 309.3 309.4 *** Per Mr. Rutledge, Battery charging area shall comply with this section. Stated that ventilation is ample in this building. This shall require review and release for permit by PPRBD Mechanical Dept. Batteries Electrolyte: 540 gallons of electrolyte is reported in the generator batteries: Ventilation shall be provided in accordance with the International Mechanical Code and the following: 1. For flooded lead-acid, flooded Ni-Cd and VRLA batteries, the ventilation system shall be designed to limit the maximum concentration of hydrogen to 1.0 percent of the total volume of the room; or 2. Continuous ventilation shall be provided at a rate of not less than 1 cubic foot per minute per square foot (1 ft3/ min/ft2) [0.0051 m3/s # m2] of floor area of the room.
AttentionEquipment, machinery, and required detection and alarm systems associated with the use, storage, or handling of hazardous materials shall be listed or approved. This requirement is subject to verification at the time of the Hazardous materials Inspection prior to signing the Fire Final. THIS INCLUDES THE BATTERY & VENTILATION SYSTEMS.
FYILabeling - An NFPA 704 compliant Hazard Placard is required for each pedestrian entry door rooms containing hazardous materials in excess of the exempt amounts (this door could be interior or exterior) and all such doors shall be included. 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. Doors into electrical equipment rooms or buildings containing stationary battery systems shall be provided with approved signs. The signs shall state that: 1. The room contains energized battery systems. 2. The room contains energized electrical circuits. 3. The battery electrolyte solutions, where present, are corrosive liquids.
