5/14/2020 I2015 IFC - THERMAL RUNAWAY. VRLA and lithium metal polymer battery systems shall be provided with a listed device or other approved method to preclude, detect and control thermal runaway. (2015 IFC ?608.3)
I2015 IFC - EQUIPMENT ROOM AND BUILDING SIGNAGE. Doors into electrical equipment rooms or buildings containing stationary battery systems shall be provided with approved signs. The signs shall state that: 1. The room contains energized battery systems. 2. The room contains energized electrical circuits. 3. The battery electrolyte solutions, where present, are corrosive liquids. (2015 IFC ?608.7.1)
I2015 IFC - SPILL CONTROL AND NEUTRALIZATION. An approved method and materials for the control and neutralization of a spill of electrolyte shall be provided in areas containing lead acid, nickel-cadmium or other types of batteries with freeflowing liquid electrolyte. For purposes of this paragraph, a #spill# is defined as any unintentional release of electrolyte. Exception: VRLA, lithium-ion, lithium metal polymer or other types of sealed batteries with immobilized electrolyte shall not require spill control. (2015 IFC ?608.5)
AttentionEXCEEDS PERMIT QUANTITIES; ANNUAL HAZARDOUS MATERIALS OPERATIONAL PERMIT REQUIRED. COLLECT REQUIRED INFORMATION FOR ANNUAL PERMITTING. Battery room > 50 gal
FYICHEMICAL INVENTORY, AS DECLARED Refrigerants - < 120lbs of A1 in each circuit UPS room > 50 gal electolytes Diesel Fuel (generator tank) - ~300 gal
Attention2015 IFC - SMOKE DETECTION. An approved automatic smoke detection system shall be installed in accordance with Section 907.2 in rooms containing stationary battery systems. (2015 IFC ?608.9)
Attention2015 IFC - ROOM VENTILATION. Ventilation shall be provided in accordance with the International Mechanical Code and the following: 1. For flooded lead-acid, flooded Ni-Cd and VRLA batteries, the ventilation system shall be designed to limit the maximum concentration of hydrogen to 1.0 percent of the total volume of the room; or 2. Continuous ventilation shall be provided at a rate of not less than 1 cubic foot per minute per square foot (1 ft 3/min/ft 2) [0.0051 m 3/s u m 2] of floor area of the room. Exception: Lithium-ion and lithium metal polymer batteries shall not require additional ventilation beyond that which would normally be required for human occupancy of the space in accordance with the International Mechanical Code. (2015 IFC ?608.6.1)
Attention2015 IFC - SAFETY CAPS. Safety caps for stationary storage battery systems shall comply with Sections 608.2.1 and 608.2.2. 608.2.1 NONRECOMBINANT BATTERIES. Vented lead-acid, nickel-cadmium or other types of nonrecombinant batteries shall be provided with safety venting caps. 608.2.2 RECOMBINANT BATTERIES. VRLA batteries shall be equipped with self-resealing flame-arresting safety vents. (2015 IFC ?608.2)
4/16/2020 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 https://coloradosprings.gov/fire-department/page/fuel-storage-tanks?mlid=42396 Please provide confirmation that this separate permit application will be submitted directly to the Division of the Fire Marshal for review.
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. It appears the building will have refrigerants and lead acid batteries, but it is unclear how many pounds of refrigerant will be in the mechanical room circuits and how many gallons of electroclytes will be used in the UPS system. Note that for refrigeration systems of Class A1 refrigerants greater than 220 lbs, the machinery room will be required to meet the requirements found in Section 606. UPS systems with electroclytes greater than 50 gallons shall be required to meet the requriements of Section 608 of the fire code. Please provide amounts for each of the electrolytes and the refrigerants.
