This recommended practice covers methods of installation for pressure-relief devices for equipment that has a maximum allowable working pressure MAWP of 15 psig 1. This is to provide a higher level of protection for their hazardous area equipment and personnel as they deem necessary.
Metal-clad cable for hazardous locations as defined in UL MI cable: This recommended practice is intended to assist in development of a management program designed to promote safety and environmental protection during the performance of offshore oil and gas and sulphur operations. Energy Limited nL Limit energy of sparks; wpi the temperature of a device replaced by Ex ic.
Explosion proof equipment may not provide protection against the ingress of liquids or solids therefore, breathers and drains may be required.
Zone 2- Not likely or normally confined in containers. This recommended practice covers methods of installation for pressure-relief devices for equipment that has a maximum allowable working pressure MAWP of 15 psig 1.
Published by Nickolas Allan Jenkins Modified about 1 month ago. Why is it NOT acceptable? They accomplish this by maintaining a permanent seal. Thus, the protection techniques for equipment to be installed in Zone 41f locations can be less demanding than the protection techniques for equipment to be installed in Division 1 locations.
This document recommends minimum requirements and guidelines for the design, installation, and maintenance of electrical systems on fixed and floating petroleum facilities located offshore.
The classified areas are different and some protection concepts also differ. Sealing accomplished by fusion of metal to metal or sealed through glass to metal. Nonincendive equipment is normally limited pai communication and instrumentation systems.

Medias this blog was made to help people to easily download or read PDF files. Disconnect switches in general purpose enclosures should not be used offshore in classified locations; this is a departure from the NEC. All seals should be installed as close as practicable, but in no case more than 18 inches, from the enclosures to which they are attached. Inch, size or larger conduit run entering an enclosure that contains splices, taps, or terminals.
The procedures for installation of the instruments covered in this recommended practice are based on experience with and evaluation of many installations.
This publication serves as a guide for those who are concerned with the design and construction of new platforms and for the relocation of existing platforms used for the drilling, development, and storage of hyd Must provide adequately maintained breathers and drains to prevent accumulation of moisture This document provides guidelines and recommended practice for the satisfactory design of offshore structures against fire and blast loading.
C — Sparking equipment in which the contacts are suitably protected other than by restricted breathing. Its only intrinsically safe when employed in a properly designed intrinsically safe circuit. Pai document recommends minimum requirements and guidelines for the design and installation of electrical systems on fixed and floating petroleum facilities located offshore. If Associate Apparatus is placed in the classified area then it must have ali ai of protection. Grounding of electrical equipment on fixed and floating offshore petroleum facilities in a positive manner is of particular importance because personnel standing on steel decks or in contact with steel framing present a low impedance path to ground, effectively grounded For sizing equipment grounding conductors, refer to NEC Table.
This Recommended Practice is intended to serve as a guide to crane owners and operators in 41f operating and maintenance practices and procedures for use in the safe operation of pedestal-mounted revolving cranes on fixed or oating offshore platforms, jacku Regulators such as U.

Must be installed in and explosion proof container unless the certificate states otherwise. Zone 1 Equipment must be certified as meeting the requirements of the area this could be a number of different protection concepts not just Flame-Proof.
This recommended practice is intended to assist in development of a management program designed to promote safety and environmental protection during the performance of offshore oil and gas and sulphur operations. Type PLTC nonmetallic-sheathed, power-limited tray cable. Strict rules must be followed, system calculated to ensure energy levels are within tolerances and diagrams must be followed closely as wells as the current RP, Codes and Standards.

About project SlidePlayer Terms of Service. Associated Apparatus Is 41f that not all the circuits are intrinsically safe. Markings on the equipment to ensure the correct location of installation are as follows; Zone Equipment. If you wish to download it, please recommend it to your friends in any social system.
