P844.2 - 844.2/CSA C293.2:Standard for Skin Effect Trace Heating of Pipelines, Vessels, Equipment, and Structures - Application Guide for Design, Installation, Testing, Commissioning, and Maintenance

This document is intended to aid the user in specifying, installing, operating, testing during commissioning, and maintaining skin effect trace heating systems that will: a) Maintain design temperature b) Provide electrical, thermal, and mechanical durability and reliability c) Minimize hazards to the user and the surroundings Design information, selection parameters, and data in this document are not intended to provide a complete design primer for skin effect trace heating systems. The information presented will provide guidelines for: a) Selecting the optimum skin effect trace heating system design b) Establishing design criteria and constraints for the heated pipeline, vessels, or structures to assure system compatibility c) Preparing specifications to obtain quotations for skin effect trace heating systems d) Developing information on installation, operation, testing, commissioning, and maintenance of the skin effect trace heating systemThis document provides for the application of skin effect trace heating systems for pipes, vessels, and structures. It provides recommendations for design, installation, maintenance, and repair of these systems in general industry for ordinary locations, as well as in hazardous areas with potentially explosive atmospheres. This document, when used with other recognized codes and standards, is intended to cover skin effect trace heating systems in its entirety, including system design, specification, installation, operation, testing, commissioning, and maintenance. This document also addresses the following associated systems which are important to the performance of skin effect trace heating systems: a) Thermal insulation system b) Electric power supply system c) Electric grounding system d) Control and monitoring system
