FYI" Small mutiple bottle" CO2 EXISTING system being REPLACED WITH ONE 600 LB CO2 CONTAINER-SYSTEM due to remodel. Plan reviewer contacted Mr. Muir who described the scope of work. Mr. Muir stated corrections will be made and resubmitted. No information was provided on plan set or included within plans regarding existing or replacement CO2 600 lb container. A declaration form indicated 600 lb CO2 and an Analox 50 CO2 detection-alarm system to be installed (narrative) only. SHOW LOCATIONS ON PLANS AND SUBMIT ALL SPECFICATION CUT SHEETS FOR VESSEL AND DETECTION SYSTEM. SEE ADDITIONAL 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 one 600 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.

FYIONE, 600 lb CARBON DIOXIDE VESSEL (CO2) CUBIC FEET = 5,244 cf Location: unidentified on plans 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. *** 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) ****A CO2 detector or audible/visual alarm is noted on an enclosed declaration from (Analox 50)
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. All new or proposed building ventilation system designs shall submit for review and permit approval to the Pikes Peak Regional Building Department. *** 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 OR a Listed, approved CO2 detection system, in accordance with the IFC Administrative Ruling. System requirements. Exhaust ventilation systems shall comply with all of the following: 1. Installation shall be in accordance with the International Mechanical Code. 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.
FYIVENTILATION 2704.3 CONTINUED 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. ******************** ATTENTION*************************** PPRBD Mechanical has NOT released for permit these plans.
