Use results from the 2013 NFPA 274 to help you select pipe insulation assemblies that contribute less heat, flame, and smoke in fire scenarios.

NFPA 274: Standard Test Method to Evaluate Fire Performance Characteristics of Pipe Insulation determines the heat release and smoke generation of pipe insulation and pipe insulation assemblies under controlled laboratory conditions. A method is provided for an examination of the complete insulation assembly including elbows in an actual end use configuration.

Complete coverage addresses:

  • Test specimens
  • Test equipment and instrumentation
  • Calibration
  • Procedure
  • Calculations
  • Report of results

The 2013 edition includes updated code and standard references as well as editorial revisions that improve usability and consistency with other standards. Essential for testing laboratories and manufacturers. (Softbound, 13 pp., 2013)
