Please use caution when replying or opening links or attachments. *** Good morning Fabian, I am reviewing the subject permit application and I have the following comment: 1. It appears that the soda boxes are supplied from the 400 lb CO2 tank, but the beer cooler is supplied from compressed CO2 tanks. What are the capacities of these tanks? If this system serving the beer coolers is less than 100 lbs capacity, a detector would not be required, but one sensor is proposed at these cylinders. Please verify the capacity of the beer cooler system (as it is separate from the dewar system serving the soda lines). Thanks! STEFAN MANNING, CFPS FIRE PROTECTION ENGINEER I
