I was wondering how much refrigerant my building is allowed to store in new 1000 lb containers. what is the nyc code? is it still 20%/330 lbs? and, is that for each machine?
Why would you want to store that much refrigerant?
Im shure you need some kind of permit and a plan of action in event of fire in blding.
