This equipment has additional security against the 144f of excessive temperature and the equipment is assembled very ro to ensure that arcing or sparking from part to part or connection to connection will not occur. This document provides guidelines and recommended practice for the satisfactory design of offshore structures against fire and blast loading.
Metal-clad cable as defined by NEC Article This document recommends minimum requirements and guidelines for the design apu installation of electrical systems on fixed and floating petroleum facilities located offshore.
OK Forward looking statement. 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. Nonincendive equipment is normally limited to communication and instrumentation systems.
Explosion proof equipment may not provide protection against the ingress of liquids or solids therefore, breathers and drains may be required. About project SlidePlayer Terms of Service.

Published by Nickolas Allan Jenkins Modified aoi 1 month ago. This recommended practice covers methods of installation for pressure-relief devices for equipment that has a maximum allowable working pressure MAWP of 15 14c 1. 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 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 These advantages may include reduced initial capital expenditures, enhanced safety, or facilities that are more easily and more economically maintained.
This ensures that apu gas or vapor located above the arcing or sparking parts or the gas or vapor located exterior apu the enclosure cannot be ignited by the electrical arcing parts within the oil.

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 xpi present a low qpi path to ground, effectively grounded For sizing equipment grounding conductors, refer to NEC Table. C — Sparking equipment in which the contacts are suitably protected other than by restricted breathing.
Inch, size or larger conduit run entering an enclosure that contains splices, taps, or terminals. Its only intrinsically safe when employed in a apj designed intrinsically safe circuit.
Energy Limited nL Limit energy of sparks; wpi the temperature of a device replaced by Ex ic. Markings on the equipment to ensure the correct location of installation are as follows; Zone Equipment.
Regulators such as U. If Associate Apparatus is placed in the classified area then it must have another ai of protection.
