SYSTEM DESCRIPTION
**************************************************************************
NOTE: Choice of Level 1 versus Level 3 gas,
support, and vacuum systems is determined by issues
involving patient dependency on the system for life,
effect of system failure on patient outcomes, and
other criteria as defined in NFPA 99. In general,
dental facilities (or dental areas within combined
medical/dental facilities) utilize Level 3 systems.
In general, medical facilities (or medical areas
within combined medical/dental facilities) utilize
Level 1 systems in patient care areas and Level 3
systems in non-patient care areas (Level 3 systems,
if used, must be entirely separate from Level 1
systems). Confirm choice of Level 1 or Level 3
systems match intended function as outlined in NFPA
99.
**************************************************************************

Accessibility of Equipment
**************************************************************************
NOTE: The following requirement is intended to
solicit the installer's help in the prudent location
of equipment when there is some control over
locations. However, designers should not rely on it
since enforcing this requirement in the field would
be difficult. Therefore, the system designer needs
to layout and indicate the locations of equipment,
SECTION 22 60 70
Page 10
control devices, and access doors so that most of
the accessibility questions are resolved
inexpensively during design.
**************************************************************************
Install all work so that parts requiring periodic inspection, operation,
maintenance, and repair are readily accessible. Install concealed valves,
and equipment requiring access, in locations freely accessible through
access doors.
1.3
SUBMITTALS

NOTE: Review submittal description (SD) definitions
in Section 01 33 00 SUBMITTAL PROCEDURES and edit
the following list to reflect only the submittals
required for the project.
The Guide Specification technical editors have
designated those items that require Government
approval, due to their complexity or criticality,
with a "G." Generally, other submittal items can be
reviewed by the Contractor's Quality Control
System. Only add a “G” to an item, if the submittal
is sufficiently important or complex in context of
the project.
For submittals requiring Government approval on Army
projects, a code of up to three characters within
the submittal tags may be used following the "G"
designation to indicate the approving authority.
Codes for Army projects using the Resident
Management System (RMS) are: "AE" for
Architect-Engineer; "DO" for District Office
(Engineering Division or other organization in the
District Office); "AO" for Area Office; "RO" for
Resident Office; and "PO" for Project Office. Codes
following the "G" typically are not used for Navy,
Air Force, and NASA projects.
An "S" following a submittal item indicates that the
submittal is required for the Sustainability
Notebook to fulfill federally mandated sustainable
requirements in accordance with Section 01 33 29
SUSTAINABILITY REPORTING.
Choose the first bracketed item for Navy, Air Force
and NASA projects, or choose the second bracketed
item for Army projects.
**************************************************************************
Government approval is required for submittals with a "G" designation;
submittals not having a "G" designation are for [Contractor Quality Control
approval.] [information only. When used, a designation following the "G"
designation identifies the office that will review the submittal for the
Government.] Submittals with an "S" are for inclusion in the
Sustainability Notebook, in conformance to Section 01 33 29 SUSTAINABILITY
REPORTING. Submit the following in accordance with Section 01 33 00

attached to plumbing under 79 kPa 6 inches Hg vacuum pressure.
**************************************************************************
NOTE: Vacuum gauge No. 1 shall be shown on the
contract documents.
**************************************************************************
(1)
Install vacuum gauge No. 1 on a pipe common to the power units
close to the separating tanks. Install this gauge in a manner
that will have minimal effect on airflow through the pipe.
(2)
Install vacuum gauge No. 2 on the OE inlet in the floor box of
the dental treatment room (DTR) farthest from the vacuum power
units. Note that this inlet will be closed, with no flow passing
SECTION 22 60 70
Page 59
through it.
(3)
Place a flow restrictor over one OE inlet in 70 percent of the
facility DTRs. DTRs fitted with flow restrictors should include a
mix of DTRs most distant and DTRs nearest the vacuum source.
(4)
Block off all other OE inlets and any other openings in the fixed
pipe system.
**************************************************************************
NOTE: OE systems utilize two or more vacuum pumps
and are sized so that when one pump is inoperable
the remaining pump(s) are capable of meeting the
demand of 70 percent of the facility DTRs. For this
reason, testing will be conducted with one pump
inoperable. Utilization of flow restrictors
simulates flow obtained through a functioning dental
unit. Attaching flow restrictors to inlets in 70
percent of the DTRs (with other inlets blocked)
verifies that an appropriate vacuum level can be
obtained, with one pump inoperable, under flow
conditions at a 70 percent system demand.

Operate the vacuum system with one pump inoperable and note the
readings on the two vacuum pressure gauges. Next, operate the
vacuum system with a different pump inoperable and note the
reading on both vacuum pressure gauges. Continue this process
until a vacuum reading has been obtained with each of the system
pumps taking a turn as the inoperable pump.
(6)
An acceptable OE system shall be able to maintain a minimum of 79
kPa 6 inches Hg vacuum as measured on the vacuum gauge on the
furthest DTR inlet (gauge No. 2) under the conditions outlined
above. The system piping pressure drop between the vacuum gauge
near the power units (gauge No. 1) and the vacuum gauge at the
farthest DTR (gauge No. 2) should be no more than 0.3 kPa 1 inch
Hg vacuum.

Level 1 Systems Testing
3.12.5.1
General
a.
Inspection and testing shall be performed on all new piped systems,
additions, renovations, temporary installations, or repaired systems,
to assure by a documented procedure, that all applicable provisions of
NFPA 99 and the Contract Documents have been adhered to and system
integrity has been achieved or maintained.
b.
Inspection and testing shall include all components of the system or
portions thereof, including, but not limited to, bulk source(s),
cylinder manifolds, compressed air sources (e.g., compressors, dryers,
filters, regulators), source alarms and monitoring safeguards, master
alarms, pipelines, isolation valves, area alarms, zone valves, and
station inlets (vacuum) and outlets (pressure gases).
c.
All systems that are breached and components that are subject to
additions, renovations, or replacement (e.g., new gas sources: bulk,
manifolds, compressors, dryers, alarms) shall be inspected and tested.
SECTION 22 60 70
Page 60
Systems shall be deemed breached at the point of pipeline intrusion by
physical separation or by system component removal, replacement, or
addition. Breached portions of the systems subject to inspection and
testing shall be confined to only the specific altered zone and
components in the immediate zone or area that is located upstream for
vacuum systems and downstream for pressure gases at the point or area
of intrusion.
d.
Provide inspection, testing, and verifier reports containing detailed
findings and results directly to the Contracting Officer. All
inspection, testing, and verification records shall be maintained
on-site within the facility. The Contracting Officer or their appointed
representative shall review the records prior to the use of all systems.
e.
Before piping systems are initially put into use the Contracting
Officer shall accept the Verifier's Report as determining that the
gas/vacuum delivered to the outlet/inlet is that shown on the
outlet/inlet label and the proper connecting fittings are installed for
the specific gas/vacuum service.
