AttentionTHE CHEMICAL INVENTORY, AS DECLARED, DOES EXCEED THE ALLOWABLE THRESHOLDS FOR THE ANNUAL HAZARDOUS MATERIALS OPERATIONAL PERMIT. An annual Hazardous Materials operational permit is required: * To store, handle or use Class I, Class II or Class III-A liquids in excess of 25 gallons in a building or in excess of 60 gallons outside a building. * To engage in the dispensing of liquid fuels into the fuel tanks of motor vehicles at commercial, industrial, governmental or manufacturing establishments. * 500 LB CO2 (inert/asphyxiant = ********** (BELOW permit threshold = 6,000 cf) * Refrigerants = NOT REPORTED UNKNOWN total refrigerant; permit threshold = 220 lbs per circuit) *** This facility is required to apply for the Annual Hazardous Materials Operational Permit. *** To Schedule the CONSTRUCTION HAZMAT FINAL INSPECTION AND annual operational permit 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.
DisapprovedONE, 500 lb CARBON DIOXIDE VESSEL (CO2) REPORTED BUT NOT SHOWN ON PLANS NO ADDITIONAL INFORMATION WAS PROVIDED. SUBMIT QUANTITY, SIZE IN GALLONS/LBS, LOCATION, FILL PORT, CONTAINER SPECIFICATIONS, PIPING SPECIFICATIONS, VENDOR NAME. NFPA = 3-0-0 special = SA (liquified) NFPA = 1-0-0 special = SA (gas) 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 noted exterior of building. OK 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. ****************************** 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. (Recommend only, not required when ventilation requirements are compliant)
Disapproved * 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. *** RESUBMIT PLANS AND PROVIDE THE FOLLOWING CO2 CONTAINER SIZE (LBS); CO2 SPECIFICATIONS CUT SHEETS CO2 LOCATION IDENTIFIED ON PLAN SHEET; CO2 FILL CONNECTION IDENTIFIED ON PLAN SHEET PIPING TUBING AND VALVE DESIGN SPECIFICATIONS DECLARE VENTILATION OR MONITORING-DETECTION SYSTEM.

FYICARBON DIOXIDE SEE ALSO REDLINE COMMENTS Facilities shall declare the storage and use of small Insulated Carbon Dioxide Systems used in Beverage Dispensing. Gaseous Carbon Dioxide is an asphyxiant gas and exposure to high concentrations may cause toxic effects including asphyxiation. To provide for the safety of building occupants and emergency personnel, ventilation in accordance with the IFC Sections 3007.2, 2704.3 or 2705.1.9 is required where concentrations of this gas are stored or present. ATTENTION*** THIS CO2 SYSTEMS >100 LBS, REQUIRE VENTILATION IN ACCORDANCE WITH THE IMC/IFC 2009. VENTILATION REQS. ARE SETFORTH IN IFC 2009, 3007.2; 2704.3 OR 2705.1.9 AND IMC 2009, SECTION 502.8.1, 502.8.1.1 All new or proposed building ventilation system designs shall submit for review to the Pikes Peak Regional Building Department.CARBON DIOXIDE GAS DETECTION AND ALARM SYSTEM Facilities shall declare the storage and use of small Insulated Carbon Dioxide Systems used in Beverage Dispensing. This facility is required to comply with the 2009 IFC/IMC.*** ONE OF THE FOLLOWING SHALL BE REQUIRED 1) Ventilation requirements complying with mechanical exhaust ventilation in accordance with the IMC 2009 2) Natural ventilation in accordance with the IMC 2009 3) Provide an approved-LISTED CO2 gas detection and alarm system in accordance with the following: 3a) 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. 3b) 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. 3c) 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.
