Description / Abstract:


(This introduction is not a part of IEEE Std 625-2001, IEEE Recommended Practices to Improve Electrical Maintenance and Safety in the Cement Industry.)

Continuing efforts to improve safety and working conditions in the cement industry have made safety increasingly important to the management of every cement plant. Proliferating federal, state, and local laws have placed even greater stress on the need for a good maintenance and safety program. The Cement Industry Committee has analyzed many areas to which safety requirements pertain and, through the working groups, recommended practices have evolved for the industry.

Several years ago, the Safety Committee Working Group published its safety recommendations for the cement industry. At that time, no attempt was made to cover recommended maintenance practices in cement plants; the present recommended practices, however, combine both maintenance and safety practices. This approach was agreed on by the Environmental, Maintenance and Safety Working Group and is based on the belief that sound maintenance practices go, of necessity, hand-in-hand with safety. As in the previous recommended practices, IEEE Std 625-1979 and IEEE Std 625-1990, the recommendations contained here are advisory and should be considered in that light. The Environmental, Maintenance and Safety Working Group have agreed on these recommendations, but they recommend that they be revised in the future to suit specific plant conditions. In general, however, it is hoped that these practices can provide sound, basic guidelines for the industry at present.

For these recommendations to be of maximum use to the cement industry, the users’ comments are required. Comments should be concerned with areas not covered in these recommended practices, as well as with those requiring greater coverage in subsequent reports.

These recommendations apply to all electrical equipment such as substations, power transformers, motor controls, generators, distribution systems, instruments, and storage batteries commonly used in cement plants. They are intended to be used as a guide and may be supplemented where special needs exist. This document is a companion document to IEEE Std 277-1994, IEEE Recommended Practice for Cement Plant Power Distribution [B1] and IEEE Std 499-1997, IEEE Recommended Practice for Cement Plant Electric Drives and Related Equipment [B3]1.
