(This tank declared as 210 gal by applicant, dbl. walled tank integrated onto generator). Flammable and combustible liquids shall comply with the IFC 2009 CHAPTERS 34 AND 27 as amended, and NFPA 30. It is the responsibility of the TANK INSTALLER to submit an application for the tank installation permit prior to installation. The tank installer shall submit to : Kay Yeager CSFD Office of the Fire Marshal 375 Printers Parkway CSFD received tank permit application and the GENERAC tank manufacturer's cut sheets, a declaration of contained volume, a declaration of tank contents and a site plan of the tank location with respect to walls, other structures, property lines, drive lanes, etc., and MSDS for the diesel contents. Exterior tanks will be required to have vehicular protection diagrammed and installed in accordance with the 2009 IFC, Chapter 3. Any associated piping shall be diagramed and submitted as well. ***********
DisapprovedVENTS Stationary, aboveground tanks shall be equipped with additional venting that will relieve excessive internal pressure caused by exposure to fires. Emergency vents for Class I, II and IIIA liquids shall not discharge inside buildings. The venting shall be installed and maintained in accordance with Section 22.7 of NFPA 30. Vent piping shall be designed, sized, constructed and installed in accordance with Section 3403.6. Vent pipes shall be installed such that they will drain toward the tank without sags or traps in which liquid can collect. Vent pipes shall be installed in such a manner so as not to be subject to physical damage or vibration. Vent pipe outlets for tanks storing Class I, II or IIIA liquids shall be located such that the vapors are released at a safe point outside of buildings and not less than 12 feet (3658 mm) above the finished ground level. Vapors shall be discharged upward or horizontally away from adjacent walls to assist in vapor dispersion. Vent outlets shall be located such that flammable vapors will not be trapped by eaves or other obstructions and shall be at least 5 feet (1524 mm) from building openings or lot lines of properties that can be built upon. Vent outlets on atmospheric tanks storing Class IIIB liquids are allowed to discharge inside a building if the vent is a normally closed vent. **** PLANS DO NOT SHOW NORMAL AND EM VENT OUTLETS. RESUBMIT WITH COMPLIANCE WITH ABOVE.
DisapprovedBATTERIES As declared on this submittal, this facility will contain electrolyte solution for an aggragate volume of 36.0 gallons.
