Extraction rooms are by far the most dangerous part of the business. Ventilation is required to reduce any flammable solvent concentrations. Providing sensors to warn of any hazardous conditions is essential to the safety of your employees, personnel and customers. In these types of rooms specialty electrical explosion proof lighting, power outlets, motors and exit lighting are a must. Depending on the classification required by your local municipality the requirements may change. These may be classified as class I locations. The definition of a hazard this location is are those that which of flammable gas or vapors may be present in the air in sufficient quantities to produce an explosive or ignitable mixture. Class one locations are further subs divided into two different divisions and three different zones. If you’re not familiar with these requirements you may be asking for a lot of trouble from the local city officials.
Cannabis infused edible products such as brownies and candy are becoming more prevalent as an alternative to smoked cannabis. These products are typically infused with highly concentrated oil that is extracted from plant leaves and buds and is commonly known as “hash oil.” The extract oil can also be smoked or used in vapor cigarettes. There are several different methods used to extract the oil, and most methods use flammable solvents. Any legal extraction operation will draw close scrutiny from local building and fire code officials who will typically review the extraction process and issue a marijuana extraction operational permit to ensure it is done in compliance with the applicable codes.
GrowEnclosures.com knows what it takes to design build compliant extraction labs whether is C1D1 or C1D2. Our wall system is UL Classified and prefabricated with only American Made materials.
C1D1 and C1D2 are considered hazardous areas where explosion or fire hazards exist because of flammable gases, vapors, or liquids that are part of the business operation.
Under the National Fire Protection Association’s Publication 70 and Occupational Safety and Health Administration definitions, the difference between C1D1 and C1D2 locations is how the gases or vapors are contained or used.
In a C1D1 location, ignitable concentrations of flammable gases or vapors may exist under normal operating conditions, or because of repair, maintenance, or a leak. They also may exist because of a breakdown, or faulty operation may release ignitable concentrations of flammable gases or vapors.
In a C1D2 location, volatile flammable liquids or gases are used but are normally confined in closed containers or closed systems. It also may be a place where ignitable concentrations of gases or vapors are prevented with positive mechanical ventilation. They only escape in the event of an accident or breakdown. Or a C1D2 location may be next to a C1D1 location, and the ignitable concentrations of gases or vapors might be occasionally present unless prevented with adequate positive-pressure ventilation with effective safeguards against ventilation failure.
