|Attention||*** COPY OF THE COMPRESSED GAS ASSOCIATION SAFETY ALERT FOR CARBON DIOXIDE HAS BEEN PROVIDED BY THE CSFD AND ATTACHED TO PLAN SET
|FYI||ONE, 477 lb CARBON DIOXIDE VESSEL (CO2)
CUBIC FEET =
CO2 tank supplier, and CO2 gas supplier: UNKNOWN
NFPA = 1-0-0 special = SA
NFPA = 3-0-0 SA (LIQUID)
TLV-TWAs, 5000 ppm (ACGIH, 2004)
TLV-TWA 15 MIN STEL 30,000 ppm
High Pressure liquid and gas. Can cause rapid suffocation....CO2 IS AN ASPHYXIANT
May cause frostbite.
****** ATTENTION *******
Indoor storage of compressed gases falling into categories such as asphyxiants, irritants can be hazardous regardless of the type of gas involved simply due to the hazards related to asphyxiation.
The carbon dioxide shall be transferred---loaded and off loaded through a fill connection located directly adjacent to the tank at the exterior of building.
*** FILL LOCATION IS NOT SHOWN. CONTAINER IS NOT SHOWN
ATTENTION: Duplicate gauges shall be installed at the filling connection to enable the driver to fill the container and maintain the required pressure in the container.
Pressure relief devices and vents shall be piped to discharge outside in a safe direction.
***Not identified on or with plan set.
************* NO CO2 detector or audible/visual alarm is noted on plan sheet|
|Disapproved||CARBON DIOXIDE GAS DETECTOPM AND ALARM SYSTEM
Facilities shall declare the storage and use of small Insulated Carbon Dioxide Systems used in Beverage Dispensing.
*** This facility proposes one 477 lb CO2 vessel, therefore, it is required to comply with the 2009 IFC/IMC ventilation requirements for mechanical or natural ventilation OR 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.
|Disapproved||VENTILATION 2704.3 CONTINUED
*** ATTENTION**** 2704.3 VENTILATION
Indoor storage areas and storage buildings shall be provided with mechanical exhaust ventilation or natural
ventilation where natural ventilation can be shown to be acceptable for the materials as stored.
System requirements. Exhaust or natural ventilation systems shall comply with all of the following:
1. Installation shall be in accordance with the International Mechanical Code. (sections 502.8.1 - 502.8.1.1, 402.1 through 402.4)
2. Mechanical ventilation shall be at a rate of not less than 1 cubic foot per minute per square foot of floor area over the storage area.
3. Systems shall operate continuously unless alternative designs are approved.
4. A manual shutoff control shall be provided outside of the room in a position adjacent to the access door to the room or in an approved location. The switch shall be of the break-glass type and shall be labeled:
VENTILATION SYSTEM EMERGENCY SHUTOFF.
5. Exhaust ventilation shall be designed to consider the density of the potential fumes or vapors released. For
fumes or vapors that are heavier than air, exhaust shall be taken from a point within 12 inches of the floor.
6. The location of both the exhaust and inlet air openings shall be designed to provide air movement across all
portions of the floor or room to prevent the accumulation of vapors.
7. Exhaust ventilation shall not be recirculated within the room or building if the materials stored are capable of
emitting hazardous vapors.
*** Review and release for permit by PPRBD Mechanical Dept. is required for the ventilation system at the CO2 storage location.
****** At this time, PPRBD Mechanical has released for permit these plans on 5/29/12.
*** The ventilation requirements have been met, therefore NO CO2 detection and alarm system is required.

*** Fill connection is NOT SHOWN. The tank is shown in an interior location away from fill box???
* ATTENTION: CGA P-18 The carbon dioxide shall be transferred---loaded and off loaded through a fill connection located directly adjacent to the tank at the exterior of building.
***ENSURE THAT PIPING AND VENTING OCCUR TO EXTERIOR OF BUILDING IN ACCORDANCE WITH COMPRESSED GAS ASSOCIATION P-18 REQUIREMENTS
* CARBON DIOXIDE PIPING specifications. NOTE: IFC 2009, 2703.2.2 Piping, tubing, valves and fittings. Piping, tubing, valves and fittings conveying hazardous materials shall be designed and installed in accordance with approved standards and shall be in accordance with Sections 2703.2.2.1
and 2703.2.2.2. Piping, tubing, valves, fittings and related components shall be designed and fabricated from materials that are compatible with the material to be contained and shall be of adequate strength and
durability to withstand the pressure, structural and seismic stress and exposure to which they are subject.
