  • Description

    Apply the 2018 edition of NFPA 290 for the latest testing methodology for use on LP-Gas containers.

    Especially when dealing with LP-Gas, fire resistance is a vital element of any fire hazard or fire risk assessment. Reduce risks and raise confidence by following the latest criteria in NFPA 290: Standard for Fire Testing of Passive Protection Materials for Use on LP-Gas Containers.

    Use this Standard to evaluate the fire performance characteristics of passive protection materials applied to the exterior of liquefied petroleum (LP) gas containers in a torch fire environment.

    The purpose of this procedure is to identify thermal protection insulating systems that retard or prevent the release of the container's contents in a fire environment. Originally derived from one that previously appeared in an annex of NFPA 58: Liquefied Petroleum Gas Code, the 2018 edition of NFPA 290 presents updated references to NFPA codes and standards among other documents, as well as the latest terminology used in the field. (Print, 14 pp., 2018)

    2013 Edition

    Fire resistance is a vital element of any fire hazard or fire risk assessment. Rely on the 2013 NFPA 290 for the latest testing methodology.

    Follow the criteria in NFPA 290: Standard for Fire Testing of Passive Protection Materials for Use on LP-Gas Containers to evaluate the fire performance characteristics of passive protection materials applied to the exterior of liquefied petroleum (LP) gas containers in a torch fire environment.

    This test method was derived from one that previously appeared in an annex of NFPA 58: Liquefied Petroleum Gas Code. The purpose of this procedure is to identify thermal protection insulating systems that retard or prevent the release of the container's contents in a fire environment. The 2013 edition includes a new definition for fire resistance. (Softbound, 9 pp., 2013)
