Foreword 

(This introduction is not a part of IEEE Std 1242-1999, IEEE Guide for Specifying and Selecting Power, Control, and Special-Purpose Cable for Petroleum and Chemical Plants.)

This guide was prepared by Working Group P1242 of the Petroleum and Chemical Industry Committee (PCIC) of the IEEE Industrial Applications Society with joint membership coordination from Project 9-39 of the Special Purpose Cable Subcommittee (No. 9) of the Insulated Conductor Committee (ICC) of the IEEE Power Engineering Society. This working group fulfilled a unique role by linking the user community represented by the PCIC membership with the cable manufacturing, utility, and consulting community represented by the ICC. Joint membership provided for ease of input to the guide and cable design solutions that could only have been accomplished in this manner. The purpose of this guide is to provide the user with current cable technology in order to specify and select power, control, and specialpurpose cable for use in the petroleum and chemical industry. Emphasis is placed on those areas of concern peculiar to the these industries, including such environmental effects as chemical atmospheres, hazardous areas, contamination, corrosion, and fire.

Scope 

This guide provides information on the specification and selection of power, control, and special-purpose cable, as typically used in petroleum, chemical, and similar plants. It addresses materials, design, testing, and applications. More recent developments such as strand filling, low-smoke, zero-halogen materials and chemical-moisture barriers have been included. This guide is not intended to be a design document, although many of the problems associated with the specification and selection of power, control, and special-purpose cable for petroleum and chemical plant applications can be avoided by considering the information presented in this guide. It is recognized that there may be other types of cable used in the petroleum and chemical industries, especially considering the global marketplace. This guide should not be interpreted as precluding the use of such cables.
