Have you been involved in inspecting spray booths, spray areas, dip tanks or printing operations? Looking to join an active NFPA technical committee? If so, the Technical Committee on Finishing Processes responsible for NFPA 33, Spray Application of Flammable and Combustible Materials, and NFPA 34, Dipping, Coating and Printing Processes Using Flammable or Combustible Liquids, is looking for you! This very active Committee has just completed a significant revision of their documents that amongst other changes included a new chapter on membrane enclosures for temporary spraying of large work-pieces that cannot be sprayed in traditional spray booths and the addition of new scrubber and filtration technologies within NFPA 33. The two documents are on a three-year revision cycle and the Committee is forming task groups and plans to have a pre-cycle meeting next year with a first draft meeting taking place in 2016. If you are interested and able to serve, please apply online at either www.nfpa.org/33tc or www.nfpa.org/34tc .
