§ 162-1 Purpose; modifications.

A. 
These regulations pertain to oil-burning equipment for installation and repair in furnaces and boilers used for heating dwellings and for various commercial and industrial applications and for the inspection and supervision thereof.
B. 
These regulations are intended to prescribe reasonable provisions for the installation of oil-burning equipment based on minimum requirements for safety to life and property from fire. They cover the installation and repair of oil burners and all equipment connected thereto, including tanks, piping, pumps, control devices and all accessories.
C. 
Where the circumstances of installation are unusual as to render the strict application of these regulations impracticable, the Fire Marshal may permit such modification that will provide an equivalent degree of safety.

§ 162-2 Installation license; classes.

A. 
Any person desiring to install or repair oil-burning equipment in the City of West Haven shall be licensed by the Fire Marshal. Before such license shall be issued, the applicant shall file with the Fire Marshal an application, in writing, stating the name and place of business of said applicant and such qualifications as may be required to test the ability of the applicant. Said application shall be accompanied by a fee of $10, payable to the City of West Haven. All licenses shall expire on the first day of July in each year following the date of issuance and may be renewed yearly on or before the first day of August, upon payment of a renewal fee of five $5. Any license may be revoked by the Fire Marshal for violation of any or all provisions of this Article. No license shall be renewed which has expired for a period of more than 30 days; it shall be processed as a new application.
B. 
Under this section, there shall be two classes of licenses issued:
(1) 
Class 1: a license to install oil-burning equipment
(2) 
Class 2: a license to install and service oil-burning equipment.

§ 162-3 Installation permit.

A. 
Every holder of a license, before installing any oil-burning equipment, shall file in the office of the Fire Marshal in the district where such equipment is to be installed, upon blanks furnished by said office for this purpose, an application for a permit to install said equipment.
B. 
No installation shall be done without a permit from the Fire Marshal of said district. Each permit application shall be accompanied by a fee of $2 for use of said district, payable to the Fire Marshal of said district where such equipment is installed.

§ 162-4 Modification of installation plans.

No change or modification of plans will be permitted unless such change is submitted and approved by the Fire Marshal of the district in which said equipment is to be installed.

§ 162-5 Inspection of installation.

After installation is completed and ready for inspection, the person installing the same shall notify the Fire Marshal's office of that district that work is ready for inspection and shall not leave the oil burner operating until the Fire Marshal or his inspector has approved the installation.

§ 162-6 Responsibility of permittee to rectify defects.

The person to whom the installation permit has been issued shall rectify all mistakes found by the Fire Marshal after inspection before said equipment can be used and shall be responsible for all tank enclosures.

§ 162-7 Repair of dangerous condition.

Whenever any oil-burning equipment is such as to render it unfit for use and liable to endanger life or property, the Fire Marshal shall serve written notice upon the person or persons operating or maintaining such equipment requiring such equipment to be repaired or altered so as to remove such dangerous condition. In case of failure of said person or persons to comply fully with such requirements in five days after notice shall have been served, or immediately in cases of imminent danger, said Fire Marshal shall have the power to order and compel the discontinuance of said equipment until such time as the same has been made safe in his judgment.

§ 162-8 Approved oil burners.

A. 
Oil burners shall be of an approved type.
B. 
Oil burners for which a competent attendant will not be constantly on duty in the room where the burner is located while the burner is in operation shall be so arranged as to prevent the abnormal discharge of oil at the burner by automatic means approved for the burner with which it is used.
C. 
Automatic means for preventing abnormal discharge.
(1) 
Oil burners for which a competent attendant will be constantly on duty in the room where the burner is located while the burner is operating are not required to be equipped with automatic means for preventing the abnormal discharge of oil at the burner.
(2) 
When automatic means are installed in connection with oil-burning equipment of this type, such automatic devices shall be specifically approved for use with the burner to which they are attached.
D. 
No oil burner of either class, as outlined above, may be installed in the City of West Haven unless approved by the Commissioner of State Police.
E. 
No used oil burner shall be installed unless it has been completely reconditioned.
F. 
All used oil burners approved for installation shall be equipped with new operating and safety controls.

§ 162-9 Fuel oil.

A. 
Fuel oil used with burners to which these regulations apply shall have a flash point not less than 100° F. and shall be hydrocarbon oil free from acid, grit and fibrous or other foreign matter likely to clog or injure the burner or valves. The flash point shall be determined by the Pensky-Martens closed tester, in accordance with the method of test adopted by the American Society for Testing and Materials (Designation D93-22), except that the tag closed tester (Designation D56-21) shall be used in cases of dispute concerning oils having a flash point in the vicinity of 100° F.
B.

The space between the tank and the enclosure shall be filled with sand or well-tamped earth. Where the floor or other construction immediately above the tank is of fire-resistive construction capable of safely sustaining a load of 150 pounds per square foot, the walls of the enclosure shall be carried to a height of not less than one foot above the tank and the space filled with sand or well-tamped earth to the top; otherwise, the enclosure shall have a top of reinforced concrete at least five inches thick or of equivalent construction. Instead of an enclosure as described above, the tank may be encased in reinforced concrete not less than six inches thick applied directly to the tank so as to completely eliminate an air space.
