The 2016 edition of NFPA 55 helps users ensure industrial safety around compressed gases and cryogenic fluids.
Compressed gases and cryogenic fluids require special safety measures that offer protection from physiological, over-pressurization, explosive, and flammability hazards. NFPA 55: Compressed Gases and Cryogenic Fluids Code fills the safety gap with the most comprehensive set of industrial gas requirements in the National Fire Codes.
Depend on the 2016 edition of NFPA 55 for the latest fundamental requirements essential for safe installation, storage, use, and handling of gases in portable and stationary containers, cylinders, equipment, and tanks in all occupancy types.
Major changes respond to industry needs and help you work more confidently:
- Complete reorganization of hydrogen requirements works to clarify requirements by system size.
- New chapter addresses the safe storage and use of liquid nitrous oxide.
- Changes to CO2 system requirements expand requirements for beverage systems.
NFPA 55 is essential for installers, contractors, engineers, facility managers, and anyone responsible for safety in settings that use, produce, or distribute compressed gases or cryogenic fluids. It's also a must-have resource for code enforcers, inspectors, and environmental health and safety (EHS) personnel. (Softbound, Approx. 146 pp., 2016)
