The purpose of the document is to provide a guide for the installation of fire-rated circuit integrity cables and performance requirements for these cables and/or cable systems, which may be subjected to a hydrocarbon pool fire. This guide may be useful when installing cables for applications where circuit integrity is critical to plant safety shutdown systems under hydrocarbon pool fire conditions. In addition, this guide provides installation practices found in petroleum and chemical plants and marine platforms as they relate to fire rated cables. The use of this installation guide should help eliminate premature cable failure due to improper installation in petroleum, chemical plants, and offshore marine platforms. It addresses materials and installation practices. This installation guide is not intended to be a design document, although many of the problems associated with the specification and selection of power, control, and instrumentation, fire-rated circuit integrity cables for petroleum and chemical plant applications can be avoided by considering the information presented in this guide.This installation guide provides information on the installation of fire-rated, power, control, and instrumentation cables suitable for hydrocarbon pool fires, as typically used in petroleum, chemical, and similar plants, offshore marine platforms, in emergency and safety shutdown systems.
