The inmate in the r.
I. the basic method of determining default boundaries by using the parameter L
and taking an inventory of devices)
Collect information about all devices and methods of transport
dangerous substances in the object. For each device it finds more
information needed for the assessment of the maximum quantity of dangerous substances,
that may contribute to the presumed safety of the effect, and the
categories of dangerous substances referred to in tables I and II of the annex No. 1 of the Act.
It is based on the documentation of the operator-data for the determination of the
emergency planning zones and the processing of the external emergency plan,
safety reports (in particular, the assessment of the risk of a major accident) and
the internal emergency plan, and other necessary information requested
the regional authority and further data requested Fire Department rescue squad
the County according to law on the integrated rescue systému2). In the inventory
the devices are listed and specified objects according to § 7 (2). 1 of the Act. An inventory of the
devices with indication of the dangerous substances and hazards shall be entered
in table a.1.
The device is also considered in the cases, that connects the two
the device, which is the sum of their preliminary parameters l, calculated
referred to in subparagraph (e)) (preliminary determination of the parameter l) less than their
mutual distance. For multiple links, considering each pair
This linked device. For a pipeline between two devices may be
the route is divided into individual sections, which means self
closing of the pipe installation (automatic closing valves
and the remote-closures with an independent source of energy, or
valves with a default status, which in the case of loss of control
the force of gravity, by themselves, will conclude the spring or pressure).
(b)) to determine the amount of dangerous substances
For each device listed in the device list in the table no. 1.
(hereinafter "the inventory"), enter the quantity of the placed a dangerous substance. If
the devices are interconnected and have between them sufficiently effective
separation, is in determining the amount that is used to determine the type
scenarios ("scenario") used the sum of the quantities of hazardous substances in the
For the efficient separation is considered the existence of separate pits for
each of the tanks with sufficient distance between the edge of the sink and
other tanks, the use of automatic remote-controlled closing
valves with an independent source of energy, or in case of loss
control themselves conclude, or sufficiently resistant mechanical obstacle between the
each of the devices. For effective separation is not considered the use of the
only the manually controlled valves.
In the case of the gas pipeline, where it is not possible to determine the maximum amount of
dangerous substances from the documentation of the operator, with the maximum amount of
dangerous substances to be determined using a chart No 6. The quantity of the substance must be
so large, how large is the amount of substance that is stored
produced in establishments that pipe connects.
For surface technology of underground storage of gas, including drilling
probes instead of the quantity of dangerous substances lists the pressure.
(c) the assignment type accident scenarios) to individual items in the inventory
For each item in the inventory is based on the hazardous substances present in the
the device is assigned one or more typed scenarios in table a.2.
In the case, when a substance is not listed in table A. 2, proceed to the
the basis of the categories of dangerous substances as specified in table a.3. If it is
the substance is assigned to multiple scenarios, these scenarios for the same
equipment as separate items in the inventory (separate lines).
In the case of piping of flammable gases are the type scenario FireBall
From the BLEVE does not, as a type scenario is assessed only the explosion cloud
par (VCE) and the preliminary "l" parameter is read from a chart No 2 EXPL.
In the case of production wells underground gas storage facilities with a type writer
does not provide.
(d) the calculation of the effective amount of substance)
Effective quantity of dangerous substances shall be calculated by multiplying the maximum
the amount of substance (column 4 in table 1) modifikačním factor
the relevant dangerous substances namely referred to in table 2, or
According to the relevant category of danger in the table and 3, and the resulting
the value shall be entered in column 6. The effective amount of tables and 1.
In the case of the scenario, the quantity of dangerous substance BLEVE in linked
devices is not cumulative.
(e) the determination of the preliminary of the parameter l)
The preliminary determination of the parameter l is done with the help of the chart No 1 to
5, which is related to the scenario, and by using the appropriate
type accident scenarios. The resulting value shall be entered in the column
7 Preliminary parameter l and 1 table. Preliminary parameter l is determined
separately for each item in the inventory. In the case where you cannot distance from
charts for a small value of the effective amount, or is so
as shown in table 2, and shall be determined for the preliminary parameter l distance
(f) the determination of the L parameter)
For the determination of the L parameter is used when the preliminary l parameter parameter
L is the maximum value attained all the indicative parameters l
obtained according to the procedure referred to in point (e)) (preliminary determination of parameter
Parameter L is filled in in the column of table 8 Parameter L and 1.
