Hi all, We are looking to upgrade our spirit tanks and I can't tell if we need double walled tanks, exterior vents, etc. I'm referencing NFPA 30 and UL-142. We're talking about blending tanks and holding tanks in the 1000-1500 gallon range. Is potable ethanol exempt from these? Also, do you have recommendations for suppliers of these tanks if that is what I need? Cheers
Hi All, I'm working with my city officials so I can get started up and am having some road blocks that I'd like to ask everyone about. 1) Are any of you being forced to have a separate enclosed "controlled area" for your finished packaged products? My officials are insistent that I do so. I've been to several different distilleries and have never seen this. 2) Is there an exemption in the IFC or IBC for bottled products? I have the one for spirit in barrels and I could swear I've seen a bottle exemption mentioned on other threads but I searched through and couldn't find it. 3) Is all of your equipment UL listed? I wasn't aware of this stipulation, is this common or is my city just being extra strict? Are there any ways around this? 4) They are currently trying to classify me as an M occupancy, I know in most cases distilleries are F-1. Should I roll with it and go with M occupancy or correct them to F-1? Thanks in advance for the help and input!
Hi Our building inspector has asked me to hook up an explosion proof fan to an ethanol vapor meter. I have both and ready to install but first he wants to know what the ifc and ibc say about the volume of air that need to be remove if there is a build up of vapors that would trigger the system. Can anyone help me with a quote referencing on or both of these publications. Thank You
