IEEE/IEC 60079-30-2-2015 - IEEE/IEC International Standard for Explosive atmospheres -- Part 30-2: Electrical resistance trace heating -- Application guide for design, installation and maintenance
This part of IEC 60079 provides guidance for the application of electrical resistance trace heating systems in areas where explosive atmospheres may be present, with the exclusion of those classified as requiring EPL Ga/Da (traditional relationship to Zone 0 and Zone 20 respectively). This standard also provides guidance for explosive atmospheres incorporating the Division method of area classification that may be applied by some users of this standard. NOTE Information on the Division method is given in NFPA 70 and CSA C22.1. It provides recommendations for the design, installation, maintenance and repair of trace heating systems including associated control and monitoring equipment. It does not cover devices that operate by induction heating, skin effect heating or direct pipeline heating, nor those intended for stress relieving.
IEEE/IEC 60079-30-1-2015 - IEC/IEEE International Standard - Explosive atmospheres -- Part 30-1: Electrical resistance trace heating -- General and testing requirements
This part of IEC 60079 specifies general and testing requirements for electrical resistance trace heaters for application in explosive atmospheres with the exclusion of those for EPL Ga and Da. This standard covers trace heaters that comprise either factory or field (work-site) assembled units, and which may be series trace heaters, parallel trace heaters, trace heater pads, or trace heater panels that have been assembled and/or terminated in accordance with the manufacturer?s instructions. This standard also includes requirements for termination assemblies and control methods used with trace heating systems. The explosive atmospheres referred to in this standard are those defined in IEC 60079-10-1 and IEC 60079-10-2. Annexes D and E outline the application of this standard for those users applying the Division method of area classification. This standard supplements and modifies the general requirements of IEC 60079-0, except as indicated in Table 1. Where a requirement of this standard conflicts with a requirement of IEC 60079-0, the requirement of this standard takes precedence.
IEEE 515-2017 - IEEE Standard for the Testing, Design, Installation, and Maintenance of Electrical Resistance Trace Heating for Industrial Applications
Specific testing requirements for qualifying electrical resistance trace heating for use in industrial applications in ordinary locations, as well as a basis for electrical and thermal design, are included in this standard.
