This standard provides criteria for the control air system that furnishes compressed air to nuclear safety-related components and other equipment that could affect any nuclear safety-related function in nuclear power plants.
This standard provides
(1) the system nuclear safety design requirements and the non-nuclear safety design recommendations for equipment, piping, instruments, and controls that constitute the control air system; and
(2) the nuclear safety design requirements and the non-nuclear safety design recommendations to accommodate the testing and maintenance necessary to ensure adequate performance of the control air system.
This standard applies only to the control air system and does not apply to air-operated devices or the emergency diesel generator starting air system.
