Broader scope consolidates critical requirements into a single document!
The 2003 NFPA 55: Standard for the Storage, Use, and Handling of Compressed Gases and Cryogenic Fluids in Portable and Stationary Containers, Cylinders, and Tanks represents a major expansion of the 1998 edition and covers most areas of compressed gas and cryogenic fluid safety. Users, producers, distributors, and anyone who is involved with the storage, use, or handling of compressed gases or cryogenic fluids needs the up-to-date information contained in this latest edition.
Among the many significant changes in the 2003 Standard are:
The document now contains requirements for both bulk and cylinder storage of gases
Coverage addresses manufacturers of gases as well as users, thus greatly expanding the scope of coverage for bulk gas storage and handling
New provisions for cryogenic fluids have been added
The document incorporates requirements of NFPA 50A: Standard for Gaseous Hydrogen Systems at Consumer Sites (1999), NFPA 50B: Standard for Liquefied Hydrogen Systems at Consumer Sites (1999), and NFPA 50: Standard for Bulk Oxygen Systems at Consumer Sites (2001) as individual chapters in NFPA 55
