P844.1 - Standard for Skin Effect Trace Heating of Pipelines, Vessels, Equipment, and Structures - General, Testing, Marking, and Documentation Requirements

This standard provides the user with the general, testing, marking, and documentation requirements for the design and manufacture of skin effect trace heating systems. Skin effect heating systems which follow the requirements as outlined here historically have proven to: A) Maintain design temperature of contained material B) Provide electrical, thermal, and mechanical durability and reliability C) Minimize hazards to the user or the surroundingsThis standard provides the general system requirements for skin effect trace heating. Certification requirements for the various component parts of a skin effect trace heating system are detailed. In addition the marking and documentation requirements are also covered. This standard applies to all skin effect trace heating systems in general industrial applications and covers installation in ordinary locations as well as hazardous areas having potentially explosive atmospheres.
