NFPA 67 provides a fire protection framework for industrial piping systems that contain or may contain flammable vapor mixtures.
Now in its second edition, NFPA 67: Guide on Explosion Protection for Gaseous Mixtures in Pipe Systems provides invaluable support for designers, engineers, contractors, installers, and facility managers responsible for safety in facilities with piping systems that may contain flammable gases where there is potential for ignition. It's an essential resource for anyone who works with process piping, vapor recover system piping, gas venting piping and manifolds, gas piping for water electrolysis and fuel cell systems, flare systems, and other types of piping systems.
Confidently design, install, and operate explosion protection systems for piping, using the latest practices developed by experts to:
- Prevent, contain, suppress, and/or vent explosions
- Avoid Deflagration-to-Detonation Transition (DDT)
- Contain detonations
- Minimize damage due to explosions
Advance your knowledge with the updated 2016 edition of NFPA 67.
- An expanded section addressing the detonation forces on pipes provides designers with a better description of the detonation pressure wave phenomena.
- New guidance on the proper application of detonation arresters is useful for both designers and installers.
- New references addressing the design of piping systems outside the Guide's scope help direct users to the correct NFPA® code or standard.
NFPA 67 is an important resource for everyone involved with fire and explosion safety in facilities where piping systems are installed. (Softbound, 37 pp., 2016)
