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. These advantages may include reduced initial capital expenditures, enhanced safety, or facilities that are more easily and rl economically maintained. If Rl Apparatus is placed in the classified area then it must have another ai of protection. The surrounding gas air mixture can automatically pai with out a spark being formed.
This equipment has additional security against the possibility of excessive temperature and the equipment is assembled very carefully to ensure that arcing or sparking from part to part or connection to connection will not occur.
The basic function of a FPS is to receive hydrocarbons from the wellhead, process the hydrocarbons, and store Type PLTC nonmetallic-sheathed, power-limited tray cable. Sealing accomplished by fusion of metal to metal or sealed through glass to metal. 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.
Thus, the protection techniques for equipment to be installed in Zone 1 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 and installation of new piping systems on production platforms located offshore. 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.
They accomplish this by maintaining a permanent seal.
If you wish to download it, please recommend it to your friends in any social system. This is to provide a higher level of protection for their hazardous area equipment and personnel as r deem necessary. Energy Limited nL Limit energy of sparks; wpi the temperature of a device replaced by Ex ic.
This recommended practice is intended to assist in development of a management program designed to promote safety and 14r protection during the performance of offshore oil and gas and sulphur operations.
Published by Nickolas Allan Jenkins Modified about 1 month ago. C — Sparking equipment in which the contacts are suitably protected other than by restricted breathing. Disconnect switches in general purpose enclosures should not be used offshore in classified locations; this is a departure from the NEC. 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.
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. 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 Recommended Practice is intended to serve as a guide to crane owners and operators in developing operating and maintenance practices and procedures for use in the safe operation of pedestal-mounted revolving cranes on fixed or oating offshore platforms, jacku The practitioner should in all cases seek full and proper guidance from the relevant legislation and codes aapi practice in addition to following company guidelines and procedures. Explosion proof equipment may not provide protection against the ingress of liquids or solids therefore, breathers and drains may be required.
Zone 1 Equipment must be certified as meeting the apii of the area this could be a number of different protection concepts not just Flame-Proof. About project SlidePlayer Terms of Service. Applicable gas classification group s eg.
The procedures for installation of the instruments covered in this recommended practice are based on experience with and evaluation of many installations.
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.
Markings on the equipment to ensure the correct location of installation are as follows; Zone Equipment. Associated Apparatus Is apparatus that not all the circuits are intrinsically safe.
This document recommends minimum requirements and guidelines for the design and installation of new piping systems on production platforms located offshore. 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. Regulators such as U. The classified areas are different and some protection concepts also differ.
Mineral-insulated metal-sheathed cable as defined by NEC Article Applicable gas classification group s.

Zone 2- Not likely or normally confined in containers. 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 Its only intrinsically safe when employed in a properly designed intrinsically safe circuit.
This document recommends minimum requirements and guidelines for the design, installation, 14t maintenance of electrical systems on fixed and floating petroleum facilities located offshore. Nonincendive equipment is normally limited to communication and instrumentation systems.
