Overview
Introduction

The purpose of this document is to define standards t teO Mand PMI affiliates concerning oh E s application and installation of cable trunking systems in PMI Tobacco Processing Lines, either for a Greenfield or the extension of an existing line. The contractor has to notify PMI Engineering in written in case of any different materials or installation methods he wants to apply.

General
Product specification

According to PMIE best practices for cable trunking purposes only open, wire mesh or ladder type cable management systems can be used in order to minimize dust contamination and allow easy cleaning of cable lines in tobacco processing areas. To minimize diversity and spare part needs, as general PMI standard the following product is specified: CABLOFIL welded steel wire mesh cable management system. Manufacturer: CABLOFIL Customer service: 1, route de Semur 21500 Montbard - France Tel.: 33 (0) 3 80 89 58 89 Fax: 33 (0) 3 80 92 09 67 Email: Sales.Service@cablofil.fr or info@cablofil.com Website: www.cablofil.com For local support please check the next website: http://www.cablofil.com/content.aspx?page=7&site=7 Exceptions: In case of need, for trunking of heavy power cables between building distributor and control cabinets open ladder type trays (consisting of two longitudinal members (side rails) with transverse members (rungs) welded to the side rails) from other manufacturer can be used. For product specification please check the relevant PMI Building & Utilities guideline.

Where application of chain cable carriers is necessary (e.g. on silos), the preferred solution is steel cable carriers from KabelSchlepp. KABELSCHLEPP GMBH - Marienborner Str. 75 - D-57074 Siegen - Germany Tel.: 0271/5801-0; Fax: 0271/5801-220; Email: info@kabelschlepp.de Website: www.kabelschlepp.de

2.2

General cable trunking arrangement, separation

For proper separation of power supply cables from low voltage control / communication cables two separated backbone lines (0.2 m distance) shall be implemented, started from the control cabinet. Within branch line trays the separation shall be realized by application of Cablofil COT Divider Strips.

COT Divider Strip - Product and application example:

3.1

Cable tray and accessories


Material

Specified material for cable tray, its supports and accessories in area of DCC, CC, Kitchen, Flavor Application, Dryers and exterior installations is stainless steel (316 L). In other areas application of hot dipped galvanized (GC) products can be considered. N t:t s ilfri e t i tl n p sc a l t y i ae s f oe t l b co oe I tcy ob d n o n a a y l t c b r sn ra o p tni t a c rt s d s l ai e a ao contamination!

3.2

Size

Straight cable tray sections shall be as long as possible to minimize fittings. Cable tray depth and width shall be optimized for the application, but the fill ratio must not exceed 75% of total fill capacity. Size cable tray to accommodate future cabling changes or additions.

3.3

Supports

Install and support cable management system in accordance with IEC 61537, with load span criteria of L/20 (to exceed standard requirements of L/10) and a Safety Factor of 1.7. The safe working load (SWL) as defined by the standard is the lowest value of either: The load creating a deflection of L/20 at the end. The breaking load divided by 1.7, if the deflection at L/20 is not reached.

For sizing an Interactive Load Table is available on Cablofil website: http://www.cablofil.com/content.aspx?page=2803&section=50 Supports shall include the FAS (Fast Assembly System) where possible so that screws, bolts, and additional tools are not required for cable tray mounting; installation time is reduced; and tray path can adapt to installation obstacles without the need for additional parts.

3.4

Fittings / Splices (couplers)

Wire mesh cable tray fittings are field-fabricated from straight tray sections, in accordance with ma ua trr i t co s and must be coupled with original Cablofil splices. n fc e n r t n , u s su i Splices approved for electrical continuity (bonding) shall be used as recommended by Cablofil. Use EDRN FAST SPLICE and/or FASLOCK SPLICE where possible.

3.5

Divider Strips

COT DIVIDER STRIPS shall be used inside cable trays for separation (see 2.2).

3.6.1

Grounding, EMC
UL Classified cable trays

UL Classified cable trays may act as Equipment Grounding Conductors. Contact Cablofil for approved sizes. Use UL Classified splicing methods as recommended by Cablofil. In order to benefit from the safety and EMC advantages, Cablofil trays must be bonded to the ground of the installation at each end and at least every 15 to 20 m with Cablofil grounding clamps, and protective conductor. The minimum cross-section of the protective conductor shall be 16 mm2 (~6 AWG).

If the length is less than 15 to 20 m, trays must be connected to the ground at each end. To correctly evacuate any fault and noise currents, the electrical circuit formed by the cable tray must be closed.

3.6.2

Not UL Classified cable trays

Cable trays that are not UL Classified (or UL Classification is not accepted locally) shall be grounded against fault current, noise, lightning, and electromagnetic interference by mounting grounding wire to each cable tray section with Cablofil grounding clamp.

3.6.3

EMC

General EMC related rules:

Separate the power and DATA cables (20cm separation)

Cables of different families should cross each other at right angles

Provide electrical continuity: Metallic cable tray and low resistance couplers.

Connect the cable trays to earth network (15 to 20 meters)

For further EMC related details please refer to the PMIE EMC specification document.

4.1

Cable management accessories


Cable arrangement, fixing

For proper arrangement and fixing of cables inside trays use Cablofil MFM METALLIC MULTIFIX PLATE with metal cable ties from e.g. BAND-IT, PANDUIT, LAPPKABEL. Cable tie material must be the same as the material of the MFM PLATE and the cable tray. Application of plastic/nylon ties is not accepted.

Cable exit

For protecting cables when exiting and entering tray use Cablofil CABLEXIT or DROP OUT.

5.

Fire stop

Products or combinations of materials must be used to restore the integrity of all fire-rated walls or floors that are penetrated by cables and/or cable tray so as to restore the fire integrity of the wall or floor and prevent the spread of heat, fire, gasses, and smoke. Fire stop products, materials, and systems shall be used that meet the following performance and quality assurance requirements: - Conform to both flame and temperature ratings as required by local regulations. - Be capable of closing or filling through-openings created by the burning of combustible cable jacketing or movement of cable tray due to thermal expansion. - Be compatible with and appropriate for: o The cable tray dimensions and materials, o The cable sizes and jacket materials, o The materials and construction of the penetrated wall or floor. o The environment at the installation location. - Allow future cable changes. - Not affect the electrical properties of power or communications cables. Use EZ-Path fire stop solution from Cablofil, which fulfils the above listed requirements.
