Ensure the safe operation of medical gas and vacuum systems with NFPA 99C!
Highly complex medical gas and vacuum systems require strict adherence to safety standards to maintain system integrity and avert disasters. The 2005 NFPA 99C: Gas and Vacuum Systems presents all the rules about medical piping systems from the 2005 NFPA 99 in one convenient stand-alone document.
Access complete guidance for specialized work.
Plumbers, inspectors, and verifiers trust NFPA 99C for critical information that reduces hazards and ensures that medical piping systems are connected properly. Rules cover performance, maintenance, installation, and testing. Through text and graphics, the Standard details how to work responsibly with gas, air compressor, and vacuum systems Level 1 through Level 4.
Here are just a few of the revisions and additions you'll find in the 2005 edition:
- A new pipe fitting method incorporates an automatic process that results in a more uniform weld. This lowers the likelihood of leaks and maximizes piping system performance.
- A new mechanical method of joining fittings and piping doesn't require a flame or brazing procedures. This produces an equivalent joint without a fire hazard.
- Greater flexibility for manufacturers of vacuum pumps, filters, dryers, regulators, and aftercoolers as to which materials they can use. Previous Standard editions prescribed specific materials for various components. This change promotes improvements in cost-effectiveness and efficiency without compromising safety.
