NFPA – Recommended Practice for the Classification of Flammable .. Application NFPA Recommended Practice for the Classification of Flammable Liquids, Gases, or Vapors and of Hazardous (Classified) Locations for Electrical. download NFPA Classification Of Flammable Liquids, Gases, Or Vapors And Of Hazardous (Classified) Locations For Electrical PDF - English - DRM.

In the equipment building, all of the gas is contained in piping running to some engines. Based on my recollection of the NEC, this room would require a Class I, Div 2 classification, since the gas is not normally present, but could be if there was a leak or other failure. They also have a substantial ventilation system for the building. The equipment supplier is saying that the building is "Unclassified" because the ventilation system will keep any leaking gas below a concentration that could explode. My understanding was that mechanical ventilation can reduce a Div 1 location to a Div 2, but it cannot be justification for considering the space to be unclassified. So my thought was that it would be Class I, Div 2 regardless. In which case they will need some type of alarm if the ventilation system fails, I think. It's been a while since I've dealt with hazardous location issue, so any feedback is appreciated. Both will mention that closed piping without valves and flanges can be "unclassified". This does not necessarily mean piping with valves and flanges must be classified, but rather it needs more evaluation.

This recommended practice provides information on specific flammable gases and vapors, flammable liquids, and combustible liquids whose relevant combustion properties have been sufficiently identified to allow their classification into the groups established by NFPA 70 NEC , for proper selection of electrical equipment in hazardous classified locations.

The tables of selected combustible materials contained in this document are not intended to be all-inclusive.

This recommended practice applies to chemical process areas. As used in this document, a chemical process area could be a large, integrated chemical process plant or it could be a part of such a plant. It could be a part of a manufacturing facility where flammable gases or vapors, flammable liquids, or combustible liquids are produced or used in chemical reactions, or are handled or used in certain unit operations such as mixing, filtration, coating, spraying, and distillation.

This recommended practice does not apply to situations that could involve catastrophic failure of or catastrophic discharge from process vessels, pipelines, tanks, or systems. This recommended practice does not address the unique hazards associated with explosives, pyrotechnics, blasting agents, pyrophoric materials, or oxygen-enriched atmospheres that might be present.

The purpose of this recommended practice is to provide the user with a basic understanding of the parameters that determine the degree and the extent of the hazardous classified location. This recommended practice also provides the user with examples of the applications of these parameters. Information is provided on specific flammable gases and vapors, flammable liquids, and combustible liquids, whose relevant properties determine their classification into groups.

This will assist in the selection of special electrical equipment for hazardous classified locations where such electrical equipment is required. This recommended practice is intended as a guideline and should be applied with sound engineering judgment.

Ventilation, Adequate — Ventilation that is sufficient to prevent the accumulation of enough quantities of an ignitible mixture into a specific location. Volatile Flammable Liquid — A flammable liquid whose temperature is above its flash point, or a Class II combustible liquid having a vapor pressure not exceeding Kpa 40 Psia at The three main elements are: 1 A fuel, not necessary an common combustible e.

Dust, or Mill Dust , 2 a combustible e. Air or Oxygen.


Electrical equipment, free flames, or hot surfaces. Other than the presence of each of these elements, there are two additional conditions needed to obtain a fire or an explosion: 4 The concentration of the fuel within the mixture must be between its own Upper and Lower Flammable Limit.

It is quite important to know or to reach an approximation of the quantities of flammable mixture are present inside the different location, to determinate the extension of the area.

As more the released quantities are high, as more the area affected by the hazard is wide. Another relevant parameter to take into account is the ventilation. The ventilation of a specific location can reduce sensibly the hazard connected to a ignitible substance release, even in major case. Especially for preliminary studies, even before the engineering starts, where the knowledge of the plant and the area is almost unknown, found even and approximate form of these parameters Likelihood, Concentration, and Ventilation of a specific area could be really hard, and in the best case the approximation is totally aloof from reality.

Even during the life of the plant, the classification must be periodically updated, to take into account potential changes to the original plat, or new release source s. To start the area classification, it must be identified those area containing hazardous substance, examining those area and identifying the potential sources or points of leakage. Flammable liquid s Classification: Substances handled by any process facilities include flammable and combustible liquids, flammable highly volatile liquids HVLs and flammable gases and vapors.

When classifying locations for electrical installations, the appropriate class and group s should be determinate for all flammable substances.
