I think Eddie at Wetdog is UL at this point. Stadelman was UL listed. I have my doubts about HUB or any of the people who build equipment these days. UL is basically a shakedown for about 10K per year from a group that does almost nothing. Pay your money, get your stickers.

Did you really have an inspector look at your tooling and ask for UL labels? Usually, just having UL listed components is sufficient and almost everything has that.

I can see where the pipe warmer and garage were red tagged. I'm betting they aren't in a mechanical extraction hood which is what you need in a glassworks and the fans are going to have to be tied to the on off switches on the tooling. . Nuisance, I agree and I used to be a paid fire chief. What is the construction type on the building and what is the zoning?

I would still think the inspectors will settle for the burner systems being listed along with the exhaust hood.

My U.L. Inspector wanted to see the logbook of the equipment that had been stickered and account for the remaining stickers in any purchased lot. They never asked to see panels either in a finished state or under construction.

I did however hire an independent guy who represented a few other inspection ratings and he put my equipment through actual working trials. Quite a difference.

Pete is right about the shakedown aspect of it. Too many inspectors are just looking to CYA and have no idea what they might be looking at and are not willing to make any independent calls.

Indeed. The code book says clearly : "Or acceptable to the authority having jurisdiction". That means common sense can prevail.

They never use it. I had one client in Georgia where the inspector decided that a moly should go in an explosion proof hood. He pulled that out of his ass.

They should have sued that SOB.

Pete, the facility is in a small historic brick space, in an arts center - a center that is housed in historic buildings, so any changes that need to be made need to go through the architectural review board. There is currently no hood system, but there are fans and makeup air exists through open doorways and an extractor fan (10,000 CFM). The art center was in the midst of applying for grants to install NG and up-to-code ventilation and this came up.

You may be screwed then. When you get historical architectural demands coupled to the UBC, no one budges unless you can totally hide the alterations like a hood. Code says you have either individual exhausts or you have mechanical extraction- Hood with exhaust fans mechanically pulling air out of the building. It also needs a fresh air intake.

I tried that route back in the historic zone in Santa Fe back in 1971. I had to give up.

Ditch the garage and the pipe warmer until they go away.

Yes, we did. Inspectors want to see the furnace, glory and annealer with UL stickers though. When I'm back from medical leave, I'll contact them.

Pete, thanks for having craftweb around - it's been a wealth of information for me!

try to direct them to the components which should be UL listed. Sometimes I try to imagine a blacksmith with a UL listed forge and anvil.
