Scope

PURPOSE

These recommended practices (RP) are intended to provide recommended procedures, practices, and checklists for the installation and precommissioning of new and reapplied machinery for petroleum, chemical, and gas industry services facilities. In general, these recommended practices are 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 these recommended practices 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.

EQUIPMENT CLASSIFICATION

These recommended practices are intended to address those installation and construction procedures associated with all machinery. Additional "special purpose" requirements are covered at the end of each section as required.
