This Standard defines requirements for the periodic inspection of balance of plant pressure retaining systems, components, and supports that form part of a CANDU nuclear power plant using a risk informed in-service inspection (RI-ISI) methodology. Periodic inspection (see Annex A for additional guidance) is considered to include the fluid boundary portions of balance of plant systems, components and piping, including their supports that comprise a complete nuclear power plant, excluding the following systems or portions thereof:

a) Systems, and systems connected thereto, containing the fluid that, under normal conditions, directly transports heat from nuclear fuel, and other systems whose failure can result in a significant release of radioactive substances.

Note: These systems or portions of systems are subject to periodic inspection in accordance with Clause 3.3.1(a) in CSA N285.4.

b) Systems essential for the safe shutdown of the reactor and/or the safe cooling of the nuclear fuel in the event of a process system failure.

Note: These systems or portions of systems are subject to periodic inspection in accordance with Clause 3.3.1(b) in CSA N285.4.

Cette norme énonce les exigences relatives à l’inspection périodique des systèmes et des composants complémentaires sous pression, ainsi que des supports faisant partie d’une centrale nucléaire CANDU à l’aide d’une méthodologie d’inspection en service tenant compte du risque (RI-ISI). L’inspection périodique (voir l’annexe A pour obtenir des directives supplémentaires) vise, entre autres, les parties complémentaires de l’enveloppe des liquides pour les composants et la tuyauterie ainsi que de leurs supports, y compris une centrale nucléaire complète, à l’exclusion des systèmes ou parties suivants :

a) Les systèmes, y compris ceux qui y sont reliés, contenant du fluide qui, dans des conditions normales, transportent directement la chaleur du combustible nucléaire et les autres systèmes dont la défaillance est susceptible de causer un rejet important de matières radioactives.

Note : Ces systèmes ou parties de systèmes sont soumis à une inspection périodique conformément à l’article 3.3.1 a) de la norme CSA N285.4.

b) Les systèmes essentiels à l’arrêt sécuritaire du réacteur et/ou au refroidissement en toute sécurité du combustible nucléaire en cas de défaillance d’un système fonctionnel.

Note : Ces systèmes ou parties de systèmes sont soumis à une inspection périodique conformément à l’article 3.3.1 b) de la norme CSA N285.4.

1.2.1 Size

This Standard covers flanges in sizes from NPS 1/2 to NPS 60. (See Table A.1.)

1.2.2 Grade

For other than sour service, this Standard covers flanges from Grade 248 to Grade 690. For sour service, this Standard covers flanges from Grade 248 to Grade 483.

Note: The standard grades are Grades 248, 290, 317, 359, 386, 414, 448, 483, 550, 620, and 690 (see Table 4); however, intermediate grades may also be used.

1.2.3 Nominal pressure class

This Standard covers flanges having cold working-pressure ratings designated by nominal pressure classes from PN 20 to PN 420. The standard nominal pressure classes are shown in Table 1. (ASME class designations are shown in Table B.1.)

1.2.4 Category

This Standard covers flanges in the following categories:

a) Category I: flanges without requirements for proven notch-toughness properties; and

b) Category II: flanges with requirements for proven notch-toughness properties.

1.3 Assemblies

This Standard does not cover assemblies.

Note: An assembly is a grouping of fittings or flanges, or both, joined by one or more circumferential welds.

1.4 Terminology

In this Standard, “shall” is used to express a requirement, i.e., a provision that the user is obliged to satisfy in order to comply with the standard; “should” is used to express a recommendation or that which is advised but not required; and “may” is used to express an option or that which is permissible within the limits of the Standard.

Notes accompanying clauses do not include requirements or alternative requirements; the purpose of a note accompanying a clause is to separate from the text explanatory or informative material.

Notes to tables and figures are considered part of the table or figure and may be written as requirements.

Annexes are designated normative (mandatory) or informative (non-mandatory) to define their application.

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.
