To accelerate up the growing process, most operators are seeking ways to speed growth by injecting high amounts of carbon dioxide CO2 into their grow operations. The source of this additional carbon dioxide CO2 could be through burning Liquefied Petroleum Gas and exhausting it into the grow area or through the use of Liquid CO2 converted to a gas and released into the grow rooms. The choices involving the source of CO2 can have an impact on the Hazardous Material Emergency Alarm / Life Safety System required.
Michigan law (see Advisory Bulletin dated April 10, 2018) requires a gas detection and alarm system capable of notifying building occupants of a CO2 level or release that results in a CO2 level in excess of the Time Weighted Average – Permissible Exposure Limit (TWA-PEL) as published by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA).
Ino-Tek has participated in the design and installation of gas detection and alarm systems for marijuana grow facilities across the United States. Our process – beginning with the required Hazard Review / Technical Opinion Report – ensures complete Code Compliance and promises the quickest path to a Certificate of Occupancy and full production.
Whether you are building a new facility or have an existing one, talk to one of our Field Service Engineers to make sure it meets all compliance requirements.
