In AYPO's 6-hour IMC review for Kansas contractors, we'll discuss the most important and noteworthy changes to the International Mechanical Code, and how they affect your work.
We'll begin with a short discussion on the history and organization of the IMC. After that, we'll begin by looking at Chapter 1, which determines the administration of regulations, and the appropriate maintenance of equipment. It also includes a detailed list of elements requiring regular maintenance, and possible reasons for equipment which is found to be in poor condition or which is not performing acceptably.
Next, Chapter 2 covers definitions. Here, we'll review the changes that are made there before moving to the general regulations of Chapter 3. These regulations includes instruction specific to flood hazards, ignition sources, equipment on elevated structures, and more.
In Chapter 4, we'll discuss the changes to regulations for ventilation rates, intake openings, and enclosed parking garages. Then, we'll look at changes to Chapter 5, which explains when an independent exhaust system is required. We'll also examine the storage and supervision requirements for batteries, as well as hazardous materials. We'll look at exhaust systems in homes, and proper installation of a a grease reservoir and related systems.
