All local instruments, where possible, shall be close-coupled to provide a good
representational measurement of the process conditions, otherwise they shall
be mounted remotely utilising the shortest possible impulse line lengths.
Impulse lines will also be heat-traced and insulated where required to prevent
crude waxing or hydrate formation, as applicable to service.

The orientation of housings shall, where possible, permit operators to observe
scales whilst adjusting related instruments. Escape routes shall not be

obstructed by instrumentation supports and equipments. Wherever possible,
instrument mounting heights from grade or skid-access platform levels shall
be between 1.3 m and 1.6 m. Handrails shall not be used for supporting
instruments, impulse piping or cabling.
Transmitters will be provided with integral local digital indication in
engineering units, in lieu of local gauges, provided they can tolerate the
minimum and maximum operating and environmental temperatures. Where
indication is required at a location remote from the transmitter, signals will be
repeated via either an analogue output from the process control system or an
inline loop-powered indicator - depending upon loop type.
The use of multivariable transmitters for non-critical control and monitoring
will be maximised.
Where process applications exist that require both a process control and a SIS
instrument, then the instruments shall be specified to have identical ranges
(i.e. offset and span) for the purpose of comparison between the instruments
and for discrepancy alarms to be generated in the PCS.
3.2 Instrument Materials & Rating
The pressure, temperature and materials rating of all instrument wetted parts
and casings and their associated fittings shall conform to, or exceed, the
design pressure / temperature of the process system or service to which they
are connected and the environment in which they are to be installed. In
particular, all soft goods (e.g. elastomers) subjected to the process
conditions shall be selected on the basis of resistance to explosive
decompression, chemical compatibility and suitability for the design pressure
and the design maximum to minimum temperature range.
Sensing element chamber and housing design shall be such that element
failure does not cause the housing to become pressurised. Where appropriate
to meet this requirement, a blow-out disk shall be provided preferably in the
bottom of the housing.
Materials (including bolting) for in-line instruments shall be, as a minimum, in
accordance with the piping specification. However, where suitable, an
appropriate grade of stainless steel may be used for the internal trim and/or
body.
Direct connections between process fluids and control or equipment rooms will
not be permitted.

The use of brass or copper bearing alloys shall not be permitted. The use of
aluminium for instrumentation bodies/casings shall be only permitted if
available as Marine Grade, low copper,
and the combined magnesium and titanium content is less than 0.6% and the
surface is coated to prevent corrosion from the environment and sparking by
abrasion with iron objects. Precautions are required to be taken to isolate
aluminium from other metals to prevent galvanic corrosion, e.g. by the use of
nylon washers, neoprene gaskets, etc with given approval from Company.

Locations shall also minimize the possibility of damage from passing or falling
objects and from fire. Handrails shall not be used for instrument mounting.
A permanent platform may not be required where a clear area allows access
from a ladder or portable platform to an instrument or element not more than
4.5 m above grade, however, all instruments so mounted shall be easily
accessed for maintenance.
All indicating instruments shall be installed to be readable from grade and/or
the related operational area.
Instruments shall not be subjected to excessive vibration, mechanical stress
and exposed to high temperature, which can influence the measurement.
