Customer Question

What are the required setbacks for an air and vacuum machine from gas pumps and venting pipes at a gas station? Where can I get reference material? I am pretty sure NEC Article 514 covers it, but I cannot find specific guidelines. Thank you for the help.

Welcome. My name is ***** ***** would be glad to assist.

There are no specifics for the air/vacuum machine.

The requirements for the gasoline dispensing determine how far away anything else must be to get out of the Zone or else, the other equipment must meet the same standards and hazardous location installation.
