6/26/2013 E-MailRESUBMITTED: The plans have been re-submitted, and the disapproved issues have been addressed as follows: APPROVED **PLEASE NOTE** ALL COMMENTS FOUND ON PREVIOUS PLAN REVIEWS REMAIN ENFORCEABLE UNLESS OTHERWISE NOTED IN THIS REVIEW. SEE ELECTRONIC DOCUMENTS AND CORRESPONDENCE 1) Hi Brian, Thank you for the follow up. Yes, this is sufficient. Each #system# is considered under 100 lbs so I will consider the project exempt from the administrative ruling requirement. The additional exterior storage is good practice to ensure no additional potential for releases. We will still require an inspection to verify. The contractor will need to contact our office to schedule a hazmat construction inspection with Jay Weightman (719 385-5978). Also, a best management practice: I #recommend# that listed CO2 sensor/alarm device(s) be in installed in areas where CO2 is in use/storage. I will have the plans approved and routed tomorrow. Kay
FYIKay, I spoke with the equipment people and they explained the system to me. The system will have four zones each utilizing a single tank. Each system will be independent of each other so there will be no more than 50 lbs on a single line. We will store back up tanks in the area that we indicate the one tank. Will this be sufficient for your review or will you need more info on this system? Thanks, Brian Polaski, AIA Project Manager Architectural Innovations, LLC 1271 Kelly Johnson Blvd, Suite 111 | Colorado Springs, Colorado 80920 Office 719-260-9990 | Fax 719-260-9991 ************************************************************************************ Kay, I have added a note to our drawings and can come and replace the sheet if this will be an acceptable solution to our CO2 issue. Please let me know. Brian
FYIONE 600 LB CO2 CONTAINER-SYSTEM (declaration form provided dated 4/16/13 No information was provided on plan set or included within plans regarding this CO2 600 lb container. A declaration form indicated 600 lb CO2. Equipment list identified 119 as CO2 container to be installed interior location in kitchen. SEE DISAPPROVED COMMENTS
AttentionCARBON 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 FOUR 50 LB CO2 vessels, non manifolded, each on separate zone systems, therefore, it is NOT required to comply with the 2009 IFC/IMC ventilation requirements for mechanical or natural ventilation. It is recommended that approved CO2 gas detection and alarm systems be installed 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.
FYIFOUR, 50 LB CARBON DIOXIDE VESSELS (CO2) NFPA = 1-0-0 special = SA NFPA = 3-0-0 special = SA (liquid CO2) 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. 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)
AttentionTHE CHEMICAL INVENTORY, AS DECLARED, DOES NOT EXCEED THE ALLOWABLE THRESHOLDS FOR THE ANNUAL HAZARDOUS MATERIALS OPERATIONAL PERMIT. *** This facility is NOT required to apply for the Annual Hazardous Materials Operational Permit. ***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.

FYICARBON DIOXIDE 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.
ILABELING 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.
E-MailPiping 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.
