Prior Years Prior Editions of NFPA 214

Use NFPA 214's updated fire risk analysis for water-cooling towers.

Follow the industry's latest requirements and data on fire protection systems for field-erected and factory-assembled water-cooling towers of combustible construction -- or those in which the fill is of combustible material.

NFPA 214: Standard on Water-Cooling Towers provisions help you determine the type and amount of fire protection needed by taking into account factors such as importance to continuity of operation, size and construction of tower, type of tower, location of tower, water supply, and climate.

Changes in the 2011 NFPA 214:

  • Expanded fire-resistant partition testing includes ASTM and UL Standards
  • Revised definition of "Air Travel" addresses counterflow cooling towers
  • Changes concerning fire protection of the motor address the addition of wet- and dry-pipe sprinkler systems
  • Correction to the value for NaCl for water quality assessment

Get up-to-date on a vital aspect of fire protection with the 2011 NFPA 214. (Softbound, 22 pp., 2011)
