UFC 3-520-05

STATIONARY BATTERY AREAS

active, Most Current
Organization: UFC
Publication Date: 14 April 2008
Status: active
Page Count: 21
scope:

This UFC cites and supplements existing Government and commercial standards and specifications governing the architectural, mechanical, plumbing, and electrical requirements for design of stationary secondary battery installations. These batteries are operated on a continuous float charge and require ventilation to limit hydrogen gas concentrations.

Note: The additional requirements identified in MIL-HDBK 411B, Power and the Environment for Sensitive DoD Electronic Equipment, can apply to larger battery installations, such as for fixed Department of Defense (DoD) communications, data processing, and information systems facilities. However, this UFC has more stringent criteria with respect to hydrogen control, and conforms with current industry practices and standards (single fan versus dual fan criteria). Therefore, MIL-HDBK 411B is no longer required with respect to battery area design.

PURPOSE.

Unified Facility Criteria (UFC) 3-520-05 provides design guidance for stationary secondary battery installations. It serves as a planning, engineering, and design reference for professional facility planners, designers, and constructors, including DoD personnel and Government contractors. Designers and planners will use this document for individual project planning, for preparing engineering documentation, and for preparing contract documents for construction and renovation projects.
