  • Description

    The 2017 edition of NFPA 36 helps you work to ensure greater fire safety and minimize the risks of working at solvent extraction plants.

    Implement the new rules in NFPA 36: Standard for Solvent Extraction Plants to mitigate the specialized hazards involved in extraction of oils from agricultural commodities using hydrocarbon solvents.

    Changes to this edition provide more information for operators and designers of solvent extraction plants and make NFPA 36 easier to apply and enforce.

    • A new subsection addresses trenches for solids-collecting conveyors.
    • A new subsection in Annex A provides references to assessment methods for determining the need for lightning protection.
    • Section 8.2 has been revised for consistency with NFPA 30: Flammable and Combustible Liquids Code and to clarify the normal and emergency venting requirements.
    • All exceptions have been rewritten in enforceable, mandatory language.

    Critical for designers, builders, operators, inspectors, and enforcement personnel, the latest edition of NFPA 36 is essential to help minimize risks associated with working in dust-laden or flammable vapor-laden atmospheres at solvent extraction plants. (Softbound, 32 pp., 2017)

  • Prior Editions

    The 2013 NFPA 36 works to ensure fire safety at solvent extraction plants.

    Implement the new rules in NFPA 36: Standard for Solvent Extraction Plants to mitigate the specialized hazards involved in extraction of oils from agricultural commodities using hydrocarbon solvents.

    Changes to this edition include guidance on the use of hand tools and revised guidance on electrical area classification:

    • NFPA 36 extends its application to hand tools and requires management review of their use.
    • Annex revisions provide guidance on the use of spark-resistant hand tools.
    • Section 7.7 has been revised to recognize the Zone system of electrical area classification.

    Other revisions correlate NFPA 36 with NFPA 61.

    The 2013 NFPA 36 includes new exceptions to its requirements for fabric dust collectors to be located either outside or along an outside wall in a fire-resistive room inside the building. These changes align NFPA 36 with NFPA 61: Standard for the Prevention of Fires and Dust Explosions in Agricultural and Food Processing Facilities and provide the designer with more flexible approaches for dust collection.

    Designers, builders, operators, inspectors, and enforcement personnel need today's NFPA 36 to minimize risks associated with working in flammable vapor-laden atmospheres. (Softbound, 28 pp., 2013)
