UL STANDARD FOR SAFETY Power-Operated Pumps for Petroleum Dispensing Products
|Publication Date:||29 April 2016|
These requirements cover products described in 1.2. Requirements for the installation and use of these products are included in the Flammable and Combustible Liquids Code, NFPA 30; the Automotive and Marine Service Station Code, NFPA 30A; and the National Electrical Code, NFPA 70.
These requirements cover electrically-, hydraulically-, or pneumatically-driven
a) Self-contained flammable liquid dispensing devices and submerged pumps used in storage tanks that provide the petroleum product to remote control flammable liquid dispensing devices. They are intended for operation at discharge pressures of 50 pounds per square inch (psig) (345 kPa), or the marked maximum discharge pressure rating, when less, with the ambient and liquid temperature within the range of minus 20°F (minus 29°C) - 125°F (52°C).
b) Flammable liquid dispensing systems to transfer the petroleum product from a tank or container to a vehicle or another container. They are intended for operation at the marked maximum discharge pressure, or less, with the ambient and liquid temperature within the range of minus 20°F (minus 29°C) - 125°F (52°C).
c) Vapor recovery applications for flammable liquid dispensing devices. They are intended to operate under a vacuum at the inlet and a maximum discharge pressure of 50 psig (345 kPa), or marked discharge pressure, whichever is less.
These requirements do not cover:
a) Oil burner pumps, which are evaluated under the Standard for Pumps for Oil-Burning Appliances, UL 343.
b) Pumps for engine-powered automotive equipment.
c) Pumps for marine use which are evaluated under the Standard for Mechanically and Electrically Operated Fuel Pumps for Marine Use, UL 1130.
d) Pumps for use in chemical, petrochemical, or petroleum processing plants; utility power plants; petroleum production facilities; pipeline pump stations; pipeline or marine terminals; or bulk plant distribution and related facilities.
e) Pumps used in mobile applications, such as on tank trucks, portable tanks, or portable containers mounted on vehicles.
f) Pumps rated more than 600 volts.
g) Pump assemblies also provided with a flammable liquid meter or electrically-operate
The pump assembly is not prohibited from being constructed such that it provides for the installation and use of a flammable liquid hose and hose nozzle valve.
"Petroleum Products," as used herein, means gasoline, gasoline/alcohol blends up to 15% Ethanol or 15% Methanol, diesel fuel, fuel oil, lubricating oil, and the vapors of these fuels. Other petroleum products are not prohibited from being used in the pump when the materials comply with the requirements in Materials, Section 5, when the pump is evaluated using the additional liquids, and the additional petroleum products are marked on the pump as indicated in 74.1(f).
