API RP 686
Recommended Practice for Machinery Installation and Installation Design
|Publication Date:||1 December 2009|
This recommended practice (RP) is intended to provide recommended procedures, practices, and checklists for the installation and precommissioning of new, existing, and reapplied machinery and to assist with the installation design of such machinery for petroleum, chemical, and gas industry services facilities. In general, this RP is intended to supplement vendor instructions and the instructions provided by the original equipment manufacturer (OEM) should be carefully followed with regard to equipment installation and checkout.
Most major topics of this RP are subdivided into sections of "Installation Design" and "Installation" with the intent being that each section can be removed and used as needed by the appropriate design or installation personnel.
