|Publication Date:||1 May 2020|
This standard encompasses the design and performance requirements for diesel fuel maintenance systems. Fuel filtration and fuel polishing systems may be evaluated using this standard. Mobile filtration systems are not included within the scope of this standard.
There is no size requirement limitation outlined in this standard. The manufacturer shall state the appropriate maximum size of diesel storage tank for use with the evaluated product.
Approval standards are intended to verify that the product described will meet stated conditions of performance, safety, and quality useful to the ends of property loss prevention.
This standard states Approval requirements for fuel maintenance systems used with stored diesel fuel in order to ensure proper performance of stationary diesel engines despite being idle for extended periods. This would include stored diesel fuel supplies for emergency power systems and diesel engine driven fire pump applications.
Approval criteria may include, but are not limited to, performance requirements, marking requirements, examination of manufacturing facility(ies), audit of quality assurance procedures, and a follow-up program.
