NFPA 58 2011 Liquedfied Petroleum Gas Code
NFPA 58: Liquefied Petroleum Gas Code helps you protect homes, businesses and industrial settings from LP-Gas leaks and explosions.
The 2011 NFPA 58: Liquefied Petroleum Gas Code includes a major change that requires cathodic protection for underground tanks to guard against corrosion. This new rule helps preserve structural integrity, since corrosion creates pits or holes that left alone or ignored can lead to leaks, releasing propane into the ground. Other changes help make installations more secure, including a new prohibition against using former rail car tanks as they do not meet standards of the ASME Boiler and Pressure Vessel Code. Other new and revised requirements help ensure adequate training of people who install or handle propane tanks and piping materials.
