Description / Abstract:

This standard provides cable and/or system requirements and methods for performing circuit integrity tests on energized low voltage power, control, and instrumentation cables at temperatures and heat fluxes simulating a hydrocarbon pool fire.


The purpose of the document is to provide circuit integrity test methodology and performance requirements for cables and/or cable systems which may be subjected to a hydrocarbon pool fire. This protocol may be useful when selecting cables for applications where circuit integrity is critical to plant shutdown under hydrocarbon fire conditions. It can also be a useful tool in the development of technology to design cables that maintain circuit integrity during such a fire.
