This Standard specifies the requirements for trace heaters, surface heaters, and heating device sets for use on system voltages not exceeding 750 V that are intended to be installed in accordance with the Canadian Electrical Code, Part I. It applies to heating devices installed on or in metal and non-metallic pipes, tanks, vessels, and related equipment and to various surface heating applications. Typical applications include
a) the protection of pipes, tanks, and vessels, including fire protection systems, from freezing;
b) maintaining required temperatures on process equipment, including pipes, tanks, and vessels;
c) earth thermal storage;
d) hot water temperature maintenance;
e) surface heating, including floor, ceiling, and wall-heating;
f) snow melting; and
g) de-icing of roofs and gutters.
This Standard does not apply to devices intended to heat or to stress relieve pipes or vessels using eddy current, induction, skin effect, or electric current passed directly through the pipe or vessel wall (impedance).
This Standard does not apply to heating elements using carbon ink dispersion.
Note: Carbon ink dispersion does not include an extruded polymer material.
This Standard does not apply to heating devices that are for use in hazardous locations.
Note: The requirements for heating devices used in hazardous locations are now in CAN/CSA-C22.2 No 60079-30-1.
The values given in SI units are the units of record for the purposes of this Standard. The values given in parentheses are for information and comparison only.
In CSA standards, "shall" is used to express a requirement, i.e., a provision that the user is obliged to satisfy in order to comply with the standard; "should" is used to express a recommendation or that which is advised but not required; and "may" is used to express an option or that which is permissible within the limits of the standard.
Notes accompanying clauses do not include requirements or alternative requirements; the purpose of a note accompanying a clause is to separate from the text explanatory or informative material.
Notes to tables and figures are considered part of the table or figure and may be written as requirements.
Annexes are designated normative (mandatory) or informative (non-mandatory) to define their application.
