I have this suspicion that attaching a snow plow to an aircraft refueler truck is not permitted, especially at a federally funded airport. It just sounds like a bad idea to put something that can create sparks on a vehicle storing 300 gallons of highly volatile aircraft fuel. Nonetheless, the airport management has decided to do so. I am curious…(Show moreShow less)
I highly doubt the NFPA codes have progressed to the point of covering the edge case of mounting a plow on a fuel truck. However, assuming the plow blade is on the front of the truck, any sparks it makes are (presumably) going to be well distant from the fuel storage tank. You could make a similar argument that plow blades should not be…
In my organization we use side by side off road vehicles(UTVs) for all hazards response coverage during special events at city parks, venues, festivals, concerts, etc., in our urban areas. We have zero training and or policy on operational practices for UTV operators, passengers, equipment storage. I am asking what is the current best practices…(Show moreShow less)
Hi I have been working in 1 project about conveying system for Sulphur in Sulphonation plant. I have been checking for some information about assessment due to combustible dust / flameable gas due to this work. I am looking from NFPA 655 what things need to be checked to prevent & protect for fire&explosion in handling Sulphur. So basically…(Show moreShow less)
There is a good code of practice by the HSE authorities in New Zealand. Refer here: Preventing sulphur fires and explosions | WorkSafe Other than assessing the hazardous area classification, you might want to look at eliminating sources of ignition and minimization of dust.
For the conventional heat detector, is it OK to be used in the room where the HVAC air flow direction is downwards(from ceiling to floor), and air flow speed no higher than 0.5m/s. The hvac outlet is installed on ceiling and nearly cover whole ceiling. The heat detector is installed on ceiling. Will the air flow influence the heat spreading and…(Show moreShow less)
Hi, I am in the process of designing a sprinkler system for a comercial warehouse in Uruguay. Analyzing the products to be stored I´ve noticed that some of them are alcoholic beverages containting up to 50% alcohol. In the 2013 edition of NFPA 13 beverages with an alcohol content up to 50% stored in glass bottles were classified as class…(Show moreShow less)
FM Global has a data sheet dedicated to air separation processes if you want to see what they recommend. The data sheet is free to download from their website. It actually references the data sheet on compressors for the fire protection scheme and has a small piece on suggestions for external lubrication oil systems.
