IF we get static for 10 liters of liquid nitro, we can take it away from them and say (truthfully) that we don't use it there anymore. Will that work? Thanks lots, From: Bovard, Harry Sent: Thursday, December 12, 2013 4:00 PM To: Doan, Deb Subject: Re: size of West Dewar for liquid nitro 10 liters. We should remove it as they never request that it be filled. From: Doan, Deb Sent: Thursday, December 12, 2013 11:47 AM To: Bovard, Harry Subject: size of West Dewar for liquid nitro Can you help me to identify the size of the Dewar used at West. We're getting all sorts of grief from the fire dept because we'll have liquid nitro at Roundhouse. They want us to put in extra ventilation! Anyway, if you can look up the size of the unit, I can get them the info. This is holding up our ability to get a permit9 Thanks lots!
