It may help to understand that a semicolon is used between items in a list or series if any of the items contain commas. If you think of the correct way to use the grammar and punctuation in the sentence, it should be more clear.
Hi, Thanks for your response. The Question arises since there is a difference of opinion, that's the reason i bring to our forum to get clear cut idea, intention behind this code content.
Still i am looking for better answer.
thanks once again.
Sorry I did not help. I did not have a clear idea from your question since the difference in opinion were not presented in your background information. While you have to understand the facts and arguments, I really need to understand what’s already in their heads and how those ideas got there in the first place.
So what were the difference of opinions that was trying to be resolved?
Hi, The discussion is started as below.
Fuel transfer pump is feeding the day tank. Contractor has installed solenoide valve at the 2" inlet line to Day (fuel) tank.Tank has overflow opening of 2" and contractor has installed 1" by reducing the line size and bring back to main storage buried tank. I asked to install 2" or higher size overflow but contractor claims that since there is solenoide valve is installed in the inlet line, overflow is not required however, 1" line installed for betterment.
Now , Please go through my query.
From the background information provided and in my opinion, the devices and means in your design give the impression of being the intent of the 2018 NFPA 30, Subsection 24.14.8. The devices and means are at the sole discretion of the design team and not prescribed by this Subsection of the code.
Annex A is not the Code requirement:
The NFPA 30 code is not intended to be a design nor a installation standard.
I my opinion the hazards have been evaluated by the design team, and the construction contract must be followed unless modified by the design team.
Hope this helps.
