  • Description

    Apply NFPA 82 to help mitigate fire risks for incinerators and waste handling systems.

    Whether you're a facility owner or manager, waste or linen chute manufacturer, designer, insurer or AHJ, there's no substitute for NFPA 82, Standard on Incinerators and Waste and Linen Handling Systems and Equipment. This vital standard details the fire-safe installation and use of:

    • Waste storage rooms
    • Containers
    • Incinerators
    • Compactors
    • Waste, linen, and laundry handling systems

    Recent changes add clarity, reflect the context of equipment in use in the field, and bring the standard up to date with referenced documents.

    • Added definitions for combustible material, noncombustible material, and spark arrester are consistent with NFPA 211, Standard for Chimneys, Fireplaces, Vents, and Solid Fuel-Burning Appliances.
    • Revisions in Chapter 5 focus on spark arresters as a method of preventing spark and fly ash from exiting chimneys.
    • To align with their listing and allow proper seating of chute doors, the gaskets previously required in Chapter 6 for chute doors has been removed.
    • Updated references reflect the current editions of NFPA 13, NFPA 54, NFPA 58, NFPA 70®, National Electrical Code®, and NFPA 80, among other documents.

    Annex A includes detailed graphics on types of chutes, a full pneumatic system, a fire damper engineering alternatives, and more. (Print, 33 pp., 2019)

    2014 Edition

    Reduce fire risks for incinerators and waste handling systems with the 2014 edition of NFPA 82.

    Turn to NFPA 82, Standard on Incinerators and Waste and Linen Handling Systems and Equipment for the fire-safe installation and use of:

    • Waste storage rooms
    • Containers
    • Incinerators
    • Compactors
    • Waste, linen and laundry handling systems

    The 2014 edition of this document uses the terms "fire resistance rating" and "fire protection rating" in alignment with their usage in other NFPA® documents. In addition, all uses of "loading," "service opening" and "service loading" have been changed to "intake" to match real-world industry usage.

    Other updates to NFPA 82 include:

    • A definition for a "chute discharge door" has been added to differentiate between the types of doors used in chute operations.
    • To reflect current practice, the use of a fire damper has been added in lieu of a fire door. (The fire damper provides the same level of protection, but features a much more effective seal at the opening and has fewer maintenance concerns.)
    • The fire protection rating for the openings in the chute enclosure are consistent with other changes included in this edition.
    • Requirements for external-fed waste compactors have been expanded by adding a definition to clarify how an external waste compactor differs from a waste compactor. Also, specific requirements have been added to Chapter 8 to address the main hazard of external waste compactors: the risk of fire and smoke spreading from the compactor back into the building.
    • Requirements for decommissioning a chute have been added to give users guidance on removing the chute door while maintaining the rating of the chute enclosure.

    If you're a facility owner or manager, waste or linen chute manufacturer, designer, insurer or AHJ, make sure you have the latest version of NFPA 82. Order your copy today. (Softbound, 25 pp., 2014)
