5 General Requirements

5.1 Engineering Units

Unless otherwise specified, all dimensions and measurements shall be specified on Saudi Aramco Form(s) 8020-117-ENG.

5.2 Environmental Conditions

5.2.1 The turbine meter and associated accessories shall operate continuously under the following ambient air temperatures and humidity without any degradation of the manufacturer's guaranteed performance:

5.2.1.1 Temperature

Instruments and control systems shall operate continuously under the following ambient air temperatures without any degradation of the manufacturer's guaranteed performance:

(32°F)

Notes:

1)

"Sheltered" refers to permanent, ventilated enclosures or buildings, or permanently fixed sunshades with a top and three sides.

2)

For instruments which dissipate internal heat and are installed in custom engineered enclosures (e.g., enclosures not included in the original manufacturer's temperature certification), an additional 15°C shall be added to the above maximum temperatures. An example, for "indoor air conditioned" installation, the equipment must perform at 35 + 15 = 50°C. Similarly, for the "outdoor unsheltered" case, the equipment shall be designed for a maximum operating temperature of 65 + 15 = 80°C.

3)

For the outdoor installations only, the designer can take credit for forced or passive cooling to eliminate or reduce the 15°C heat rise. For example, if vortex coolers are used, the heat removal capacity of the coolers may be subtracted from the generated heat. No more than 15°C reduction in temperature will be given as credit. The designer shall substantiate his claim by providing the support data and calculations.

5.2.1.2 Humidity

Outdoor design basis shall be 5% to 95% relative humidity (non-condensing).

Nearshore is defined as any outdoor, onshore location within one kilometer from the shoreline of the Arabian Gulf; all of the Ras Tanura Refinery and Terminal; and within three kilometers from the shoreline of the Red Sea.

5.3 Enclosures

The instrument manufacturer shall ensure that all equipment installed outdoors is designed to withstand the environmental conditions.

All enclosures shall be water and dust-tight in accordance with NEMA ICS 6 and NEMA 250 Type 4X or IEC 60529 Type IP65, and suitable for the electrical area classification as specified by Saudi Aramco Form 8020-117-ENG.
