UL Releases 3rd Edition of ANSI/UL 122701 for Process Sealing Between Electrical Systems and Flammable or Combustible Process Fluids

Untitled-2The third edition of ANSI/UL 122701, the Standard for Requirements for Process Sealing Between Electrical Systems and Flammable or Combustible Process Fluids, is available on the UL website.

Description: “1.1 This document provides specific requirements for process sealing between electrical systems and flammable or combustible process fluids where a failure could allow the migration of process fluids directly into the electrical system.

NOTE 1: Some definitions differentiate the terms “flammable” and “combustible” liquids on the basis of their flashpoints. Combustible liquids under conditions of elevated pressure and/or temperature can lead to the formation of flammable mists and aerosols which are within the scope of this standard.

A Dash of Maxwell’s: A Maxwell’s Equations Primer – Part Two

Maxwell’s Equations are eloquently simple yet excruciatingly complex. Their first statement by James Clerk Maxwell in 1864 heralded the beginning of the age of radio and, one could argue, the age of modern electronics.

1.2 This document contains requirements for construction and testing of single seal equipment, dual seal equipment, and add-on secondary seals.

1.3 The requirements of this document apply to process seals as described in the process sealing sections of NFPA 70 in the United States or CSA C22.1 in Canada but does not address the additional requirements for electrical conduit and cable seals as addressed in UL 1203 (CSA C22.2 No. 30) and UL 2225 (CSA C22.2 No. 174). Requirements for basic electrical safety and explosion protection are not addressed by this document, but may apply to equipment under investigation. The secondary effects of leakage to the environment are not addressed by this standard.”
