Propane Code Compliance

NFPA Pamphlet 58

NFPA 58 announced new requirements for all propane bulk storage facilities that should have been met by the year 2011. Any storage facility with an aggregate over 4,000 gallons water capacity must comply with these new 2011 regulations.  Tanks must be fitted with internal valves or an Emergency Shutoff Valve (ESV) near the inlet or outlet of the storage tanks. The regulations also have provisions for thermal protection and remote shutdowns for the valves. To safeguard propane installations, the NFPA and the US EPA have developed the FSA and O&M instructions that all-applicable propane facilities must comply within a certain time frame.

The 2001 edition of the National Fire Protection Associations (NFPA) Pamphlet 58, Liquefied Petroleum Gas Code requires a written Fire Safety Analysis (FSA) and written Operations & Maintenance Instructions. These requirements originated at the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) under the Risk Management Program (RMP). SES is well versed in these new requirements and can make the necessary changes to your system in the event you havenít already done so. We have found that there are many installations out there that are not aware of these changes or forgot about them. Be sure that you have your system in compliance now and call SES.
