1 BCFC Part 4 Flammable and Combustible Liquids Application: BCFC Part 4 Part 4 provides for the storage, handling, use and processing of flammable liquids and combustible liquids in buildings,, structures and open areas. Bob Furlong BCFC Part 4 Part 4 DOES NOT apply to: transportation of flammable liquids or combustible liquids appliances and their ancillary equipment within the scope of CAN/CSA-B139, Installation Code for Oil-Burning Equipment the storage of flammable liquids or combustible liquids on farms for individual farm use and on isolated construction projects, or the storage of aerosol products covered under Subsection Flammable & Combustible Liquids BCFC focuses on Flash Point (FP) and Boiling Point (BP) to establish a Class Rating. Different classes of flammable and combustible liquids pose different hazards and therefore have different rules. Classifying Flammable Liquids Flammable liquid classes: Classifying Combustible Liquids Combustible Liquid Classes Class IA F.P. below 22.8 C (73 F), boiling point below 37.8 C (100 F) Class IB F.P. below 22.8 C (73 F), boiling point at or above 37.8 C (100 F) Class IC F.P.. at or above 22.8 C (73 F), and below 37.8 C (100 F), Class II F.P. at or above 37.8 C (100 F) but below 60 C (140 F.) Class IIIA F.P. at or above 60 C (140 F) but below 93.3 C (200 F.) Class IIIB F.P. at or above 93.3 C (200 F.). 1

2 Boiling Point Temperature at which the saturated vapour pressure of a liquid is equal to atmospheric pressure Flammable and Combustible Liquids Combustible liquid classes: Class II Flash Point _> 37.8øC and below 60øC Class IIIA Flash Point => 60øC and below 93.3øC Flashpoint and Boiling Point Refer to: Manufacturer's Material Safety Data Sheets (MSDS) Flashpoint and Boiling Point Manufacturer's Material Safety Data Sheets (MSDS) Exercise F F LIQUID F.P. B.P. Class Diesel Fuel # Gasoline Motor Oil 450 >500 Isoamyl Acetate Ethyl Ether Formalin Mixture 98% Motor Oil and 2% Gasoline Use the FP (Flash Point) and the BP (Boiling Point) to determine the Class using the Flammable CombustibleLiquid Chart. Exercise F F LIQUID F.P. B.P. Class Diesel Fuel # Class II Gasoline Class IB Motor Oil 450 >500 Class IIIB Isoamyl Acetate Class IC Ethyl Ether Class IA Formalin Class II Mixture 98% Motor Oil and 2% Gasoline Class IB Use the FP (Flash Point) and the BP (Boiling Point) to determine the Class using the Flammable CombustibleLiquid Chart. Flammable and Combustible Liquids Flammable and Combustible Liquids Heated Liquid? When a liquid having a flash point at or above 37.8 C is being processed, stored, handled or used at a temperature at or above its flash point, it shall be treated as a Class I liquid. Used Lubricating Oil? Classify as a Class IIIA liquid. EXCEPT - When Class I or II liquids are added to the used oils classify: through tests (BCFC ) or as a Class IC liquid if Class I liquids are added, or as a Class II liquid if only Class II liquids are added. 2

3 Flammable Liquids Mixtures containing component/s with a flash point of 100 F or higher which make up 99% or more of the total volume of the mixture, are not considered flammable. Fire Tetrahedron Fuel Heat Source Oxygen Combustible Flammable Liquid Increases Surface Temperature Production of Ignitable Vapours Therefore, mixtures containing more than 1% of a liquid with a flash point below 100 F are considered flammable. Sustained Combustion Suitable Chemical Reaction Flame Established Flammable Limits Lower explosive limit (LEL) minimum concentration of vapour or gas in air below which propagation of flame does not occur on contact with a source of ignition. Upper Explosive Limit (UEL) maximum proportion of vapour in air above which propagation of flame does not occur. LEL or UEL are usually expressed in terms of percentage by volume of vapour in air. Fire Protection and Prevention Considerations BASICS Management of: Ignition sources Flammable vapours Spills or leaks Ground vegetation and accumulations of combustible materials not essential to operations. Contaminated rags and similar materials 15 Fire Protection and Prevention Considerations Flammable and Combustible Liquids BASIC Access for fire fighting Management of Hot Works Fire Safety and Emergency Plan Electrical Installations Electrical equipment in a location where flammable liquids or combustible liquids are present shall conform to the British Columbia Safety Standards Act and pursuant regulations 3

4 Electrical - Classes Canadian Electrical Code (C.E.C.), Part I, Section 18 - Hazardous Locations, identifies three classes of hazardous locations: Class I - Gas and Vapour Environments Explosion Proof Electrical Divisions or Zones Division - pre-1998 C.E.C. Zone C.E.C. Class II - Dust Environments Class III - Fibers and Flyings Environments Done to here Go back to flash point Hazardous atmosphere is expected to be present during normal operations on a continuous, intermittent or periodic basis Div 1 Flammable atmosphere highly likely to Done to here Go back be to present flash point - may be present for long periods or even continuously Zone 0 Zone 1 Flammable atmosphere possible but unlikely to be present for long periods Div 2 Volatile flammable liquids or gases are handled, processed or used but in which they would normally be confined within closed containers or closed systems from which they can escape only in the event of an accidental rupture or breakdown of the containers or systems. Zone 2 Flammable atmosphere unlikely to be present except for short periods of time - typically as a result of a process fault condition. Electrical Division Vs.
