This 4-hour course will focus on the changes and updates to the International Mechanical Code (IMC) between 2009 and 2012. We’ll begin with a discussion of the history and organization of the IMC, before we jump into the specific changes.
These changes can be found in Chapter 1, which addresses the inspection and maintenance of mechanical systems, chapter 2, which contains definitions for important terms found in the code, and Chapter 3, which contains some general regulations, including new sections on piping and fittings.
Then, we’ll talk a bit about ventilation and exhaust systems in Chapters 4 and 5. Chapter 4 covers ventilation requirements, intake protection, and when independent systems are required. Chapter 5 covers battery storage and supervision, along with hazardous production materials, smoke barrier construction, and more.
Chapter 6 will address the use of exhaust duct systems, wiring in plenums, and joints, seams, and connections before moving on to air dispersion systems and smoke damper ratings. Lastly, we’ll cover Chapter 7, which contains instruction on combustion air.
