Hazard Symblos





Specifying equipment for large or small projects can be overwhelming for some. Industrial processes run in dangerous environments where flammable liquids and explosive gases are present. Any of these substances can easily be ignited if surrounding equipment is not designed to prevent equipment from becoming an ignition source.

Most of us know that rebuilt flame safeguard controls are illegal in the state of California. However, most of us couldn't identify the main code or law that prohibits them. The American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME) code CSD-1 has been adopted in 28 states, California included.

AQMD Rulle 1147On July 1st, 2014 the Deadline for compliance to the AQMD Rule 1147 came and went, this rule applies to combustion equipment that is using gas or liquid fuels that fall under the scrutiny of SCAQMD. If you have a burner that is subject to this rule it is important that you come up with a solution to present your AQMD representative, by showing them you have a plan in place they will give you time to complete the project stated in the submitted proposal. The only other way to get an extension is if your equipment is rated for less than 400,000 btu/hour, if so you will be given five years from the deadline which was July 1, 2014...
