2/21/2020 ILiquid Helium transfers from the supply vehicle to the 250 L dewars shall NOT be performed inside (ie, the connection that is made or broken) as it does not appear the location of the dewar meets the requirements of NFPA 55 8.13.11.3. The dewars shall either be filled on site but OUTSIDE or the dewars shall be pre-filled and swapped out.
IDewars appear to have pressure relief valves. These valves are to be vented to the outside in accordance with NFPA 55 8.3.3.
AttentionEXCEEDS PERMIT QUANTITIES; ANNUAL HAZARDOUS MATERIALS OPERATIONAL PERMIT REQUIRED. COLLECT REQUIRED INFORMATION FOR ANNUAL PERMITTING.
AttentionHAMMERS: The information from this permit application must be entered into the HAMMERS program and added to the facilities hazardous materials information. Visit the following link: https://hammers.springsgov.com/ to add the information to the facility.
AttentionINSPECTION REQUIRED. An inspection of this hazardous materials installation/process is required prior to final Certificate of Occupancy/occupancy of the building/commencement of hazardous materials operations. To schedule the hazardous materials inspection, please call 719-385-5978 and follow prompts to schedule the inspection. Please have the plan review number ready before calling.
FYI2015 IFC - DESIGN AND CONSTRUCTION. Piping, tubing, valves, fittings and related components used for hazardous materials shall be in accordance with the following: 1. 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. 2. Piping and tubing shall be identified in accordance with ASME A13.1 to indicate the material conveyed. 3. Readily accessible manual valves or automatic remotely activated fail-safe emergency shutoff valves shall be installed on supply piping and tubing at the following locations: 3.1. The point of use. 3.2. The tank, cylinder or bulk source. 4. Manual emergency shutoff valves and controls for remotely activated emergency shutoff valves shall be identified and the location shall be clearly visible, accessible and indicated by means of a sign. 5. Backflow prevention or check valves shall be provided where the backflow of hazardous materials could create a hazardous condition or cause the unauthorized discharge of hazardous materials. 6. Where gases or liquids having a hazard ranking of: Health Class 3 or 4 Flammability Class 4 Instability Class 3 or 4 in accordance with NFPA 704 are carried in pressurized piping above 15 pounds per square inch gauge (psig) (103 kPa), an approved means of leak detection and emergency shutoff or excess flow control shall be provided. Where the piping originates from within a hazardous material storage room or area, the excess flow control shall be located within the storage room or area. Where the piping originates from a bulk source, the excess flow control shall be located as close to the bulk source as practical. Exceptions: 1. Piping for inlet connections designed to prevent backflow. 2. Piping for pressure relief devices. (2015 IFC ?5003.2.2.1)
FYI2015 IFC - HAZARD IDENTIFICATION SIGNS. Unless otherwise exempted by the fire code official, visible hazard identification signs as specified in NFPA 704 for the specific material contained shall be placed on stationary containers and aboveground tanks and at entrances to locations where hazardous materials are stored, dispensed, used or handled in quantities requiring a permit and at specific entrances and locations designated by the fire code official. (2015 IFC ?5003.5)
FYI2015 IFC - MARKINGS. Individual containers, cartons or packages shall be conspicuously marked or labeled in an approved manner. Rooms or cabinets containing compressed gases shall be conspicuously labeled: COMPRESSED GAS. (2015 IFC ?5003.5.1)
FYI2015 IFC - PIPING SYSTEMS. Piping systems shall be marked in accordance with ASME 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 not less than every 20 feet (6096 mm) or fraction thereof throughout the piping run. Exceptions: 1. Piping that is designed or intended to carry more than one gas at various times shall have appropriate signs or markings posted at the manifold, along the piping and at each point of use to provide clear identification and warning. 2. Piping within gas manufacturing plants, gas processing plants, refineries and similar occupancies shall be marked in an approved manner. (2015 IFC ?5303.4.3)
1/15/2020 DisapprovedThe med gas shop drawings indicate a standard medical gas piping penetration detail - is medical gas expected to enter this room? If there are modifications to any existing medical gas system, the piping modifications shall be shown on the plans and shall be installed and inspected per NFPA 99.
DisapprovedComment response indicates that "no LHe (liquid helium) will be stored on site", however, it states that there will be transfer occuring. How is this transfer to be performed? Where will this transfer take place? Fire code regulates both STORAGE and USE/HANDLING. How much is to be transferred? Cryogenic fluids shall be transferred in accordance with 5505.4 of the fire code; compressed gas transfers shall be in accordance with Section 5305. Please provide more details on the transferring, including the location of transfer, amount of transfer, method of transfer, etc to demonstrate the transfer meets all applicable code requirements.
12/19/2019 DisapprovedHAZARDOUS MATERIAL INVENTORY STATEMENT: All Processes/Operations, Materials/Chemicals indicated on the Hazardous Materials Triage form must be provided on a Hazardous Materials Inventory Statement (HMIS). An HMIS WAS NOT provided with the submittal. The HMIS shall include the following information: 1. Product name. 2. Component. 3. Chemical Abstract Service (CAS) number. 4. Location where stored or used. 5. Container size. 6. Hazard classification. 7. Amount in storage. 8. Amount in use-closed systems. 9. Amount in use-open systems. Please provide an HMIS that provides the amount of chemicals that are being added, removed, or modified as part of the scope of work (ie, Helium, diesel, etc).
DisapprovedWhere is the Helium Dewar indicated in the MRI shop drawings located? Will it require medical gas piping provided by NFPA 99?
DisapprovedSEPARATE HAZARDOUS MATERIAL PERMITS REQUIRED: The following Processes/Operations require separate permits through the Division of the Fire Marshal, 375 Printers Parkway, Colorado Springs, CO 80910: AF - Aboveground fuel tank for generator For submittal and permitting information regarding these permits, please visit http://bit.ly/OtherHazmat The diesel generator's fuel tank to be installed on site requires a separate permit to be submitted to the Division of the Fire Marshal at 375 Printers Parkway. Please provide a letter with the plans indicating that this tank installation permit will be submitted. This tank is to be approved and inspected prior to final inspection.
