Scope

1.1 Applicable equipment

This Standard applies to newly produced direct gas-fired crop dryers of the recirculating or non-recirculating type, hereinafter referred to as “dryers”, the primary purpose of which is to provide process heating to dry farm crops. These dryers are used in non-occupied spaces and are constructed of non-combustible materials having input ratings of 20,000,000 Btu/hr (5,861,421 W) or less, constructed entirely of new unused parts and materials. A stacked dryer composed of individual burner units or modules, each having an input rating of 20,000,000 Btu/hr (5,861,421 W) or less, and where each individual burner unit or module is equipped with its own burner control, is also considered to be within the scope of the standard.

This Standard refers to equipment in which heated air is used to reduce the moisture content of farm crops.

The installation is to conform with local codes, or in the absence of local codes, in accordance with the CSA B149.1 and CSA B149.2.

This Standard is intended to cover complete dryers with integral air moving components, i.e., those which are designed by, catalogued by, and built on a repetitive basis by the manufacturer, and those in which the dryer and air moving components are tested as an assembly and available for separate sale.

1.2 Applicable fuel types 

Dryers covered under this Standard are for use:

a) with natural gas; and

b) with propane in the liquid and vapour phase.

1.3 Applicable installation location

This Standard applies to dryers intended for outdoor use only.

1.4 Forced draft burner limitation

This Standard is limited to dryers that are equipped with forced draft burner(s) which rely on combustion air supplied by a mechanical device, such as a fan or blower.

1.5 Construction requirements

The construction of dryers for use with the above-mentioned gases is covered under Clause 4.

1.6 Performance requirements

The performance of dryers for use with the above-mentioned gases is covered under Clause 5.

1.8 Pressure references

All references to pressure throughout this Standard are to be considered “gauge” pressure, unless otherwise specified.

1.9 Measurement units

This Standard contains SI (Metric) corresponding to the yard/pound quantities, the purpose being to allow the standard to be used in SI (Metric) units. (Standard for use of the International System of Units (SI): The Modern Metric System, IEEE/ASTM SI 10 or ISO 80000-1:2009 Quantities and units – Part 1: General are used as a guide in making metric conversion from yard/pound quantities.) If a value for a measurement and a corresponding value in other units are stated, the first stated value is to be regarded as the requirement. The given corresponding value may be approximate. If a value for a measurement and a corresponding value in other units are both specified as a quoted marking requirement, the first stated unit, or both shall be provided.

This section of IEC 60947-5 provides detailed specifications relating to the electrical and mechanical construction of emergency stop devices with mechanical latching function and to their testing.

This standard is applicable to electrical control circuit devices and switching elements which are used to initiate an emergency stop signal. Such devices may be either provided with their own enclosure, or installed according to the manufacturer’s instructions.

This standard does not apply to:
– emergency stop devices for non-electrical control circuit, for example hydraulic, pneumatic;
– emergency stop devices without mechanical latching function.

An emergency stop device may also be used to provide an emergency switching off function.

This standard does not deal with any specific requirements on noise as the noise emission of electrical emergency stop devices with mechanical latching function is not considered to be a relevant hazard.

This clause of Part 1 is replaced by the following.

This International Standard specifies safety requirements for electrically operated commercial refrigerating appliances that have an incorporated compressor or that are supplied in two units for assembly as a single
appliance in accordance with the manufacturer’s instructions (split system).

1DV.1 D2 Modification to replace the second paragraph in Clause 1 with the following:

This Standard specifies safety requirements for electrically operated commercial refrigerating appliances that have an incorporated compressor or that are supplied in two units for assembly as a single appliance in  accordance with the manufacturer’s instructions (split system) and intended for use in accordance with:

NOTE 101 Examples of appliances that are within the scope of this standard are
– REFRIGERATED DISPLAY and STORAGE CABINETS;
– refrigerated trolley cabinets;
– service counters and self-service counters;
– blast chillers and blast freezers.

As far as is practicable, this standard deals with the common hazards presented by these types of appliances.

It does not cover those features of construction and operation of refrigerating appliances which are dealt with in ISO standards.

NOTE 102 Attention is drawn to the fact that
– for appliances intended to be used in vehicles or on board ships or aircraft, additional requirements may be necessary;
– in many countries, additional requirements are specified by national authorities. 

NOTE 103 This standard does not apply to
– domestic refrigerating appliances (IEC 60335-2-24)
– industrial refrigerating systems; – motor-compressors (IEC 60335-2-34);
