4/15/2013 FYIThis project is: Kneaders Bakery, 3430 Cinema Pt: new bakery restaurant Date of Plans: 2.11.13 You can access our web site for the latest fire department plan review comments: 1. From, select PLAN REVIEW then FIND PLANS next COLORADO SPRINGS 2. Scroll down to the correct address. You may then select APPROVED/DISAPPROVED to view comments associated with that particular project. HAZMAT REVIEW FOR CARBON DIOXIDE BEVERAGE DISPENSING AND OTHER SYSTEM: 450 LB CONTAINER; NUC02 vendor ATTENTION: See our web site for our latest plan review comments for your job at: - go to "City Agencies" (tab on the teal bar to get a drop box) - click on - "Fire Department" - (Using the links down the left side of the page), click on - "Web Guide." Once you're into the Web Guide, click on "Plan Review Status" This will also give you access to numerous other items that may assist you in your future project design work.
ITHE CHEMICAL INVENTORY, AS DECLARED, EXCEEDS THE ALLOWABLE THRESHOLDS FOR THE ANNUAL HAZARDOUS MATERIALS OPERATIONAL PERMIT. 450 LB CO2 (inert/asphyxiant = 3,933 scf ********** (permit threshold = 6,000 cf) *** This facility is NOT required to apply for the Annual Hazardous Materials Operational Permit at the CSFD online website: ***This facility is required to have a Construction Hazmat Inspection. *** To Schedule the hazardous materials construction inspection please contact the Division of the Fire Marshal @ 719-385-5978. *** For further questions or information please contact the Division of the Fire Marshal main number at 719-385-5978. NOTE TO CONTRACTOR & 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.
AttentionONE, 450 lb CARBON DIOXIDE VESSEL (CO2) CUBIC FEET = 3,933 scf Location: INTERIOR SOUTHEAST CORNER OF REST. NUCO2 Carbo Mizer is the supplier NFPA = 1-0-0 special = SA 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. VENTILATION SHALL BE MAINTAINED AND OPERATIONAL. See ventilation comments. 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 connection shall be located on exterior of building. Not identified 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. ****************************** NOTE: Storage areas where an accumulation of inert gas could occur should be continuously monitored with an appropriate alarm system to indicate an oxygen deficient atmosphere. (Recommended see below comments)
AttentionRECOMMENDATION: CARBON DIOXIDE INSTALL a gas detection and alarm system. The installation of a CO2 monitoring system allows detection and notification of a hazardous condition which can be mitigated or referred to emergency response forces. Proposals for consideration to modify the core fire code requirement shall include a minimum of 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. Provide MSDS Ventilation -- lower levels of room. Carbon dioxide monitor and alarm system - train employees in response. Train and educate employees on the specific hazards and preventive measures. Maintenance & calibration of carbon dioxide monitor and alarm system, and ventilation system.
AttentionMECHANICAL CO2 - VENTILATION Plan sheet M1.1 STATES THAT mechanical exhaust ventilation shall be in accordance with the IMC & IFC 2009, ed. for the storage location. At this time PPRBD, Mechanical dept. has redlined this section and has disapproved the ventilation for this area. CSFD Plan Reviewer also redlined comments on M1.1 to provide ventilation per comments and requirements identified by RBD Mechanical Dept. *** Exhaust Ventilation shall be required to be reviewed and released for permit by PPRBD Mechanical Dept.
AttentionNUC02 specification spreadsheet provided for CO2 vessel. Piping not identified. Piping shall be protected against physical damage. Signage shall be provided for piping and hose systems as follows: 1. Above-ground piping systems shall be marked in accordance with ANSI A13.1. 2. Station outlets shall be marked to indicate their intended usage. 3. Signs shall be posted, indicating clearly the location and identity of section shutoff valves. PIPING AND VESSEL REQUIREMETNS NOTE: 2703.2.1 Design and construction of containers, cylinders and tanks. Containers, cylinders and tanks shall be designed and constructed in accordance with approved standards. Containers, cylinders, tanks and other means used for containment of hazardous materials shall be of an approved type. Pressure vessels shall comply with the ASME Boiler and Pressure Vessel Code. 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. ***ATTENTION: Piping, tubing, hoses anf fittings shall be designed to a bursting pressure of AT LEAST FOUR times the system design pressure. **** Materials of construction shall be employed for a potential exposure to a temperature of -109.3 degrees F. * provide exterior fill port specifications and valve venting to exterior
AttentionLABELING AND MARKING ** Stationary compressed gas containers, cylinders and tanks shall be marked with the name of the gas Markings shall be visible from any direction of approach. ** Portable compressed gas containers, cylinders and tanks shall be marked in accordance with CGA C-7. Piping systems shall be marked in accordance with ANSI A13.1. ** Markings used for piping systems shall consist of the content#s name and include a direction-of-flow arrow. ** Markings shall be provided at each valve; at wall, floor or ceiling penetrations; at each change of direction; and at a minimum of every 20 feet or fraction thereof throughout the piping run. Portable containers, cylinders and tanks. Portable compressed gas containers, cylinders and tanks shall be marked in accordance with CGA C-7. Signs clearly establishing the location and identity of shut-off valves are to be provided. All inert piping systems shall be identified by appropriate labeling with the name of the gas. Warning signs shall be posed at each entrance to the room or enclosure where the bulk inert gas system is installed. Wording shall include: WARNING ---(name of gas) HIGH CONCENTRATION OF GAS MAY OCCUR IN THIS AREA AND MAY CAUSE ASPHYXIATION. VERIFY THAT OXYGEN CONCENTRATION IS ABOVE 19.5% BEFORE ENTERING AND DURING ACTIVITY IN THIS AREA.
