Article 19.08(8) - CO2 bar-systems


What are the CO2 bar-systems mentioned in Article 19.08(8)?


CO2 dispensing systems are catering systems and therefore not mentioned elsewhere. CO2 dispensing systems are used for providing the necessary pressure for dispensing beverages from containers in common use in the catering trade as well as for carbonating beverages. As CO2 is heavier than air, rooms below deck in particular, from which unintentional releases of CO2 are unable to escape to the outside under the influence of gravity, must be provided with appropriate ventilation equipment as otherwise there is a risk of suffocation.
