Use Classification for Metals Shredding Facility

Use Classification for Metals Shredding Facility

Use Classification for Metals Shredding Facility

I was hoping to gather recommendations on the use group for which a metal processing plant (shredding and sorting) would be classified. This facility is able to shred a car in about 30 seconds using a 9000 HP hammermill. MadMax kind of awesome....So cool. Metal does goes flying on the occasion when gas or propane tanks detonate as they pass through the shredder and noxious fumes are generated as the hammermill is cooled with water, as lots of heat and steam is generated. After reading through the 2009 IBC, which is the governing document in this State, it seems to me that H5 might fit, as there are multiple physical hazards involved.

Your thoughts on this issue would be appreciated.

Without looking too deep into it, My vote is for H-3.
