1.1 These requirements cover emergency breakaway fittings, swivel connectors and pipe-connecting fittings of the threadless compression type. Connectors and fittings covered by these requirements are intended only for the following services.
1.2 A swivel connector is either a hose swivel or joint swivel. The swivel connector will allow radial movement and shall be constructed for use with the fluids shown in 1.4.
1.3 An emergency breakaway fitting is used between the outlet of the dispensing device and the hose nozzle valve and separates in the event that the coupling is subjected to an excessive pull force to safeguard against abnormally excessive pull force on the hose assembly and dispenser and prevent loss of liquid. An emergency breakaway fitting shall be constructed for use with the fluids shown in 1.4. The fittings shall be of the single-break or reconnectable type.
1.4 Emergency breakaway fittings, swivel connectors, and pipe-connecting fittings are intended for use with one or more of the following as applicable:
a) Diesel fuel and diesel/biodiesel blends with nominal biodiesel concentrations up to 5 percent (B0 – B5) formulated in accordance with the Standard Specification for Diesel Fuel Oils, ASTM D975;
b) Diesel/biodiesel blends with nominal biodiesel concentrations from 5 percent up to 20 percent (B6 – B20) formulated in accordance with the Standard Specification for Diesel Fuel Oil, Biodiesel Blends (B6 – B20), ASTM D7467;
c) Biodiesel (B99.9/B100) formulated in accordance with the Standard Specification for Biodiesel Fuel Blend Stock (B100) for Middle Distillate Fuels, ASTM D6751;
d) Kerosene formulated in accordance with the Standard Specification for Kerosine, ANSI/ASTM D3699; or
e) Fuel oil (heating oil) formulated in accordance with the Standard Specification for Fuel Oils, ASTM D396.
1.5 Requirements for the installation and use of dispensing equipment handling the fuels described in 1.4 are included in the Flammable and Combustible Liquids Code, ANSI/NFPA 30, and the Code for Motor Fuel Dispensing Facilities and Repair Garages, ANSI/NFPA 30A.
1.6 These requirements do not cover devices intended for use with diesel, biodiesel, diesel/biodiesel blends, kerosene or fuel oil, which are covered under the Standard for Emergency Breakaway Fittings, Swivel Connectors, and Pipe-Connection Fittings for Gasoline and Gasoline/Ethanol Blends with Nominal Ethanol Concentrations up to 85 Percent (E0 – E85), UL 567A.
1.7 These requirements do not cover devices intended for use with LP-Gas or anhydrous ammonia, which are covered under the Standard for Emergency Breakaway Fittings, Swivel Connectors, and Pipe-Connection Fittings for Petroleum Products and LP-Gas, UL 567.
1.8 A hose assembly provided with a swivel connector or emergency breakaway fitting for use with fuels anticipated by these requirements shall comply with the applicable requirements in the Standard for Hose and Hose Assemblies for Diesel Fuel, Biodiesel Fuel, Diesel/Biodiesel Blends with Nominal Biodiesel Concentrations up to 20 Percent (B20), Kerosene, and Fuel Oil, UL 330B.
