B139.1.0-15 - General requirements for large installations

CSA B139.1.0 includes the installation requirements which apply to large oil-burning equipment. This Code covers general requirements applicable to larger-capacity appliances and oil-burning equipment and associated ancillary equipment, installed in multi-unit residential, larger commercial buildings, as well as industrial and institutional buildings. CSA B139.1.1 describes general requirements for the installation of oil-fuelled stationary engines. CSA B139.1.2 describes the general requirements for miscellaneous specialty oil systems not covered by CSA B139.1.0 or CSA B139.1.2.

Smaller boiler, furnace, air heater, and water heater installations commonly found in single-family and two-family dwellings, as well as in small commercial buildings, are installed in accordance with the requirements found in CSA B139.2, Installation code for oil-burning equipment for residential and small commercial buildings.

B139.1.1-15 - General requirements for stationary engines

CSA B139.1.1 concerns the installation of stationary engines and associated ancillary equipment installed in multi-unit residential, commercial, industrial, and institutional buildings

Preface

This is the eighth edition of CSA Z662, Oil and gas pipeline systems. It supersedes the previous editions published in 2015, 2011, 2007, 2003, 1999, 1996, and 1994.

The following are the most significant changes, relative to the previous edition:

a) …TBC

The requirements of this Standard are considered to be adequate under conditions normally encountered in the oil and natural gas industry. Specific requirements for abnormal or unusual conditions are not prescribed, nor are all details related to engineering and construction prescribed. It is intended that all work performed within the scope of this Standard meet the standards of safety and integrity expressed or implied herein, and that the requirements of this Standard be applied with due regard to the protection of the environment, which includes land, water, plant life, and animal life. Detailed requirements concerning the protection of the environment are not prescribed.

It is expected that changes will be made from time to time, based on new experience and technology. Where necessary, amendments and supplements will be prepared by the Technical Committee and published in accordance with CSA Group practices.

This Standard was prepared by the Technical Committee on Petroleum and Natural Gas Industry Pipeline Systems and Materials, under the jurisdiction of the Strategic Steering Committee on Petroleum and Natural Gas Industry Systems, and has been formally approved by the Technical Committee.

Notes:

1)      Use of the singular does not exclude the plural (and vice versa) when the sense allows.

2)      Although the intended primary application of this Standard is stated in its Scope, it is important to note that it remains the responsibility of the users of the Standard to judge its suitability for their particular purpose.

3)      This Standard was developed by consensus, which is defined by CSA Policy governing standardization — Code of good practice for standardization as “substantial agreement. Consensus implies much more than a simple majority, but not necessarily unanimity”. It is consistent with this definition that a member may be included in the Technical Committee list and yet not be in full agreement with all clauses of this Standard.

4)       To submit a request for interpretation of this Standard, please send the following information to inquiries@csagroup.org and include “Request for interpretation” in the subject line:

i) define the problem, making reference to the specific clause, and, where appropriate, include an illustrative sketch;

ii) provide an explanation of circumstances surrounding the actual field condition; and

iii) where possible, phrase the request in such a way that a specific “yes” or “no” answer will address the issue.

Committee interpretations are processed in accordance with the CSA Directives and guidelines governing standardization and are available on the Current Standards Activities page at standardsactivities.csa.ca.

5)      This Standard is subject to review five years from the date of publication. Suggestions for its improvement will be referred to the appropriate committee. To submit a proposal for change, please send the following information to inquiries@csagroup.org and include “Proposal for change” in the subject line:

i) Standard designation (number);

ii) relevant clause, table, and/or figure number;

iii) wording of the proposed change; and

iv) rationale for the change.
