I want to under stand the travel distance criteria. Can you explain.
I am confused with the dead end corridor. In a hospital travel distance should be 6 m. Which seems to be not correct. I may be wrong.

Hallo every one,
Can anybody tell me the discharge capacity of a standard 63mm (2.5") fire hydrant? As the discharge pressure may vary from say 2 kg to 7 kg/cm2 what should be flow of water expected ( design flow) from the hydrant?
10th May 2012 From India, Pune
Dear Sharad, As per standard minimum discharge pressure in hydrant line should be 7.0Ksc and for highest 3.0 to 3.5Ksc.

Dear Shri Vedvert,
I have served in FMCG - Food & Beverage Industries for more than 15years. To my knowledge there should not be any hazardous chemical taking part in the manufacturing process of biscuit. Yet it depends on the supporting or utility systems that the manufacturing unit facilitated with, say for example if the unit is having a De-Mineralisation Water unit, in which chemicals like Caustic Soda flakes or Lye, Hydrochloric acid used to recharge the cation and anion exchangers.These are hazardous by nature and require careful handling.With regard to the classification of hazard as per OSHA you may google it and check with the MSDS.
Having said that, it is very much necessary to draw the material flow chart from input through output and evaluate the nature of Hazard by conducting Hazard Analysis, (it should necessarily be a team work).

Dear Vedvert,
First of all LPG is a chemical in gaseous form. Hazardous Chemical means, any chemical by its nature may cause harm to health or may create a situation which is injurious to health. LPG is a chemical substance which is highly flammable and its vapor cloud is highly explosive when its concentration reaches between Lower and Upper Explosive Limits. Thus LPG is a Hazardous chemical.
Based on the above reasons that if an industry stores LPG stores more than 16 KL is classified as "MAH" unit (Major Accident Hazard).
