DisapprovedDISAPPROVED Site Diagram declares 4 ft from tank-generator to building. **A minimum distance of 5 ft from generator-tank to building is required per NFPA 30, TABLE 22.4.1.1(b) Locate integral diesel tank- generator such that it complies with NFPA 30, TABLE 22.4.1.1(b). ******************************************* DISAPPROVED Site Diagram shows tank-generator near a bulk liquid nitrogen tank. NO DISTANCE TO THIS EXPOSURE IS IDENTIFIED. Identify all distances in feet. Locate integral diesel tank- generator such that it complies with NFPA 55 Table 8.7.2 listed below. SECTION 8.7 SEPARATION FROM HAZARDOUS CONDITIONS PER NFPA 55 TABLE 8.7.2 " Mininum Separation Distance bnetween Stationary cryogenic containers and exposures" 7) Combustible materials = 15 ft 8) Incompatible hazardous materials = 20 ft **************** DISAPPROVED ********** No vehicle impact protection was identified or declared. *** Declare vehicle impact protection at the diesel-tank location. Bollards or vehicle impact protection is required to comply with IFC 2009, SECTION 312. 1) Provide Bollards- concrete filled Steel, Schedule 40, 4 inches outer diameter buried a minimum of 3 ft underground, extending a minimum of 3 ft above grade spaced at a minimum of 4 ft on center. Shall be anchored in a concrete foundation 15" diameter x 3 feet deep. Bollards shall be spaced away from the tank a distance equal or greater than their height above grade. Bollards shall not be more than 4 feet on-center. 2) Provide Concrete Road Barriers (Jersey Barriers) as approved by the Fire Code Inspector (4' apart, 4' from tanks. See 2003 IFC Section 312.3 for height and impact resistivity requirements). 3) CMU Block Screen Walls may be an acceptable method of vehicular protection. When CMU screen walls are considered for vehicular protection, they shall be proven to meet the height/impact resistivity requirements of 2003 IFC Section 312
AttentionVENT TERMINATION NFPA 37 standard requires vent termination outside the weather enclosure. Vent termination outside the enclosure housing will apply only to those units that do not have open louvers in the lower portion of the housing door or walls. Open louvers at the top of the housing have little natural air flow impact on combustible liquid vapors that are are heavier than air and pool at the bottom of the housing. Vent termination applies to both, the atmospheric vent an the emergency vent. Atmospheric and emergency vent termination above the weather enclosure roof is performance based. (specific height dimension is subject to conditions and the AHJ.
AttentionCLEARANCES: ATTENTION The tank must be located a minimum of 15 feet from the a property line that is or can be built upon, including the opposite side of a public way and 5 feet from the exterior of a building.
