1313.6.2 Separate Compressors
JUMP TO FULL CODE CHAPTER
Air intakes for separate compressors shall be permitted to be joined together to one common intake where the following conditions are met:
- The common intake is sized to minimize backpressure in accordance with the manufacturer's recommendations.
- Each compressor can be isolated by manual or check valve, blind flange, or tube cap to prevent open inlet piping when the compressor(s) is removed for service from the consequent backflow of room air into the other compressor(s). [NFPA 99:184.108.40.206.3.11(G)]
