That really sucks. Is it likely because of a language barrier? Anways, you're right with the 3/4" pipe for table A.2.

For the purging requirements you'd fall under 6.23.1... You then have the choice of A or B. If choosing A for purging outdoors, you follow all the instructions located in clause 6.23.7

If choosing B, you could potentially have 2 options. You are then directed to 6.23.4 for one other possible scenario.

First, is an approved purge burner... If you go under the definition of "purge burner" it will tell you it's a device that continuously sparks to establish a flame while purging the gas and has a spark arrester".

In clause 6.23.4, they're basically saying an appliance that performs almost an identical function to the approved purge burner is also allowed... I do not believe a furnace ignition system is allowed. I believe they consider the design of a furnace as a combustion chamber... When they say a readily accessible burner, they mean something that's completely open that cannot build up a dangerous level of gas before exploding in your face. An example of a readily accessible burner would be a gas range, or a BBQ with the lid open.

For pressure test and leak tests you would go under 6.22... Right away 6.22.2 has an amendment on the pink pages for how it's to be done for Ontario (TSSA).

Make sure you understand the requirements of table 6.3

Also note that 6.22.3 and 6.22.4 has an amendment to the pink pages just like 6.22.2

You need to make sure you're aware that any shut off valves need to be approved for the pressures during a pressure test or they need to be removed and a cap installed in their place. You also need to be aware of the specific requirements of the gauge under 6.22.2 (b). Many techs don't use the gauge to the required specs of this clause and the TSSA guy may ask.


And does anyone know what they mean in 6.23.8?

I did a google search for you guys on this matter and this is what I came up with. Hope this helps.

6.23.8
When flaring is used to purge a piping or tubing system, an approved purge burner shall be used.

Gas flaring is a combustion device to burn associated, unwanted or excess gases and liquids released
during normal or unplanned over-pressuring operation in many industrial processes, such as oil-gas
extraction, refineries, chemical plants, coal industry and landfills.
