Title

Language: EN Explosive atmospheres - Part 13: Equipment protection by pressurized room "p" and artificially ventilated room "v"

Abstract

Language: EN IEC 60079-13:2017(E) gives requirements for the design, construction, assessment, verification and marking of rooms used to protect internal equipment by pressurization or artificial ventilation or both as applicable when located in an explosive gas atmosphere or combustible dust atmosphere hazardous area with or without an internal source of a flammable gas or vapour. It also includes a room located in a non-hazardous area that has an internal source of release of a flammable gas or vapour. This document deals with rooms that are partially constructed in a manufacturer’s facility and intended to have the final installation completed on-site, as well as rooms that are constructed completely on-site. Rooms partially constructed in a manufacturer’s facility may include third-party verification. For rooms built on-site, this document can be used by plant operators as a guide for assessment of those facilities. This document represents a major technical revision of the requirements for equipment protection by pressurized room "p" and artificially ventilated room "v" and should be considered as introducing all new requirements. This second edition cancels and replaces the first edition published in 2010. This edition constitutes a technical revision.  This edition includes the following significant technical changes with respect to the previous edition: - modification of the title of this document to include artificially ventilated room "v" in addition to pressurized room "p"; - addition of types of protection "pb", "pc", and "vc" and removal of types of protection "px", "py", "pz" and "pv"; - definition of the differences between pressurization and artificial ventilation types of protection; - removal of protection of rooms with an inert gas or a flammable gas from the scope of this document; - addition of an informative annex to include examples of applications where types of protection pressurization or artificial ventilation or pressurization and artificial ventilation can be used and associated guidelines. Additional information regarding the scope of this document can be found in Clause 1.
