V. M. Kulyechev
Approved by the Resolution of Gosgortekhnadzor of the Russian Federation of June 5, 2003 No. 60
The code of PB 03-581-03 is appropriated to these rules
1.1. These rules of the device and safe operation of stationary compressor installations, air ducts and gas pipelines establish the requirements aimed at providing industrial safety, the prevention of accidents, cases of industrial traumatism in case of operation of stationary compressor installations on the dangerous objects using the compressed air and inert gases.
1.2. Rules are developed according to the Federal Law of 21.07.97 N 116-FZ "About industrial safety of hazardous production facilities" (The Russian Federation Code. 1997. N 30. The Art. 3588), the Regulations on Federal mountain industrial supervision of Russia approved by the order of the Government of the Russian Federation of 03.12.01 N 841 (The Russian Federation Code. 2001. N 50. The Art. 4742), the General rules of industrial safety for the organizations performing activities in the field of industrial safety of hazardous production facilities, approved by the resolution of Gosgortekhnadzor of Russia of 18.10.02 N 61-A, registered by the Ministry of Justice of the Russian Federation 28.11.02 N 3968 ("The Russian newspaper" N 231 of 05:12. 02), are also intended for application by all organizations irrespective of their forms of business and patterns of ownership performing activities in the field of industrial safety and persons under surveillance to Gosgortekhnadzor of Russia.
1.3. Rules are intended for application:
a) during the designing, installation, operation, repair, reconstruction, modernization, preservation and liquidation of stationary compressor installations in the productions using the compressed air and inert gases. Specifics of productions, and also the special requirements and restrictions operating on objects are considered in case of development of project, design and operational documentation on compressor installations;
b) in case of expertize of industrial safety of compressor installations.
1.4. These rules extend to the projectible, again made and reconstructed stationary piston, rotational and screw maslozapolnenny and dry compressor installations, and also to the operating stationary compressor installations by capacity from 14 kW and above, the air ducts and gas pipelines using air and inert gases with pressure from 2 to 400 kgfs/cm2.
1.5 Rules do not extend to refrigeration and oxygen compressor units, and also the compressor installations using explosive, toxic, radioactive gases and gases of acetylene series.
1.6. In the organizations with the operating stationary compressor installations not meeting the requirements of these rules the additional actions aimed at providing their safe operation are developed. Additional actions are approved and affirm in accordance with the established procedure.
1.7. The operation manual on stationary compressor installation is developed in compliance with technical documentation of manufacturing plants, production schedules, these rules and requirements of other regulating documents for industrial safety.
2.1. In rooms of compressor installations it is not allowed to place the equipment and the equipment, technology and structurally not connected with compressors.
2.2. Placement of compressors in rooms is not allowed if in the adjacent room the explosive and chemically dangerous productions which are causing corrosion of the equipment and harmfully influencing human body are located.
2.3. In some cases compressor installations with a productivity up to 10 m3/min. with air pressure to 8 kgfs/cm2 can be established in lower floors of multi-storey factory buildings in the presence of the sufficient settlement durability of overlappings providing impossibility of their destruction in case of accidents. These installations separate from production sites blank fireproof walls.
Installation of compressor installations under household, administrative and similar it rooms is not allowed.
2.4. Passes in the machine hall shall provide possibility of installation and servicing of the compressor and electric motor and shall be at least 1,5 of m, and distance between the equipment and walls of buildings (to their speakers of parts) - at least 1 m.
2.5. Floors of the room of compressor installation should be made of fireproof wear-resistant material, equal with nonskid surface, masloustoychivy.
2.6. Doors and windows of the room of compressor installation shall open outside.
2.7. In compressor installation it is necessary to provide platforms for carrying out repair of compressors, the service equipment and electric equipment. For accomplishment of repair work on compressor installation of the room it is necessary to equip with the corresponding load-lifting devices and means of mechanization.
2.8. In compressor installation it is necessary to provide special places for storage in closed form of cleaning cloths, the tool, laying, etc., and also for storage of week inventory of oil.
2.9. The room of compressor installation should be equipped with ventilation according to requirements of normative and technical documents for industrial safety.
2.10. Channels and apertures should be closed in the compressor room level with floor removable plates. Apertures, deepenings and transitions which are not closed should be protected with handrail at least 1 m high with the continuous metal sewing 15 cm high of Paula of platforms located below and the step of ladders should make of corrugated steel.
2.11. All pipelines of compressor installation shall meet the requirements of normative and technical documents for industrial safety.
2.12. The machine hall of compressor installation should be equipped with means of operational, including conference circuit.
In the machine hall it is necessary to provide availability of the first-aid kit of first aid and drinking water.
