scope:

This part of ISO 13577 specifies the general safety requirements common to industrial furnaces and associated processing equipment (TPE). This part of ISO 13577 details significant hazards associated with TPE (see Annex B), and specifies the appropriate preventive measures for reduction or elimination of these hazards.

This part of ISO 13577 gives general principles and general safety requirements for the reduction of risks associated with TPE.

The general safety requirements apply to the other parts of ISO 13577 dealing with specific equipment, unless an exception is stated in the relevant part. The general principles are used to establish the specific technical measures in the relevant parts dealing with safety requirements for particular equipment.

For TPE covered by this part of ISO 13577, the provisions of the part of ISO 13577 directly applicable to that type of TPE, if available, take precedence over the provisions of this part of ISO 13577.

This part of ISO 13577 is not applicable to the risks associated with:

a) quenching;

b) vacuums;

c) salt baths;

d) liquid phase treatment, e.g. ladle refining;

e) protective or reactive atmospheres.

NOTE For similar TPE not covered by another specific part of ISO 13577, this part of ISO 13577 can be used to assist in the reduction of risk for the hazards identified in Annex A.

Safety requirements in this part of ISO 13577 cover furnaces that are heated by any source, but does not cover the safety requirements related to solid fuels and electrical heating as a source. For safety requirements related to electrical heating as a source, see IEC 60519 (all parts).

For a more detailed list of these categories, see Annex B.

This part of ISO 13577 is not applicable to blast furnaces, converters (in steel plants), boilers or equipment not covered under ISO 12100. This part of ISO 13577 specifies the requirements intended to be met by the manufacturer to ensure the safety of persons and property during commissioning, start-up, operation, shutdown, maintenance periods and dismantling, as well as in the event of foreseeable faults or malfunctions which can occur in the equipment.

This part of ISO 13577 specifies the safety requirements at stages in the life of the equipment, and its design, ordering, construction, use and disposal. This part of ISO 13577 specifies safety requirements for maintenance, provision for indicators and inspection. It deals with the following significant hazards, hazardous situations or hazardous events relevant to TPE, when it is used as intended and under conditions of misuse which are reasonably foreseeable by the manufacturer:

- mechanical hazards, movement of machinery and material, ejection of parts, material or liquids and gases, implosion and structural failure;

- electrical hazards;

- thermal hazards: explosion, fire, scalds, contact with hot parts, gases and flames;

- noise and vibration;

- thermal, optical and ionizing and non-ionizing radiation;

- harmful by-products and hazardous substances, poisoning, biological and micro-biological contamination, pollution and environmental discomfort.
