Instructions for Process Analyzer Shelter Data Sheets
|Publication Date:||1 May 2017|
This Practice provides instructions for preparing a Process Analyzer Shelter Data Sheet.
The four general types of analyzer shelters that can be specified using PIP PCSPA003-D are as follows:
a. Type I - Field Mounted - An analyzer in an integral cabinet mounted on a freestanding support
b. Type II - Freely Ventilated - Typically a three-sided shelter
c. Type III - Climate Controlled - Shelter with a controlled interior that is necessary for proper operation of the analyzer system(s)
d. Type IV - Controlled for Electrical Area Classification Reduction - Shelter designed to accommodate and allow safe operation of analyzer system(s) that are not rated for the exterior electrical area classification of the shelter
Each analyzer shelter in a project shall have a separate PIP PCSPA003-D data sheet specifically tailored for its intended analyzer complement. This data sheet can be supplied directly to a shelter vendor for small applications or, with other supporting documentation, to companies specializing in analyzer system integration and packaging.
