    Hi budz* wjw_1980 and others:

    The link for downloading API 500 (1997) RP "Classification of Locations for Electrical Installations at Petroleum Facilities Classified as Class I* Division 1 and Division 2" and API 505 (1997) RP "Classification of Locations for Electrical Installations at Petroleum Facilities Classified as Class I* Zone 0* Zone 1* and Zone 2" is:

    [This link Point to another website Only registered and activated users can see links.]
    KEEP IN MIND THAT TO BE ABLE TO DOWNLOAD FROM

    [This link Point to another website Only registered and activated users can see links.]
    wjw_1980* the best way I´ve found to quickly obtain information about a standard* code* practice* guidelines* etc. is to read the scope* purpose* application* and exceptions sections which are at the beginning of the document.

    I´d guess you don´t have API 500/505. Otherwise* you might have seen striking differences when comparing the first page of each document (1.1.1 Purpose):

    API 500: "The purpose of this recommended practice is to provide guidelines for classifying locations Class 1* Division 1 and Class 1* Division 2 at petroleum facilities for the selection and installation of electrical equipment."

    API 505: "The purpose of this recommended practice is to provide guidelines for classifying locations Class I* Zone O* Zone 1* and Zone 2 locations at petroleum facilities for the selection and installation of electrical equipment."

    Same first page (1.1.2 Scope)* the items beyond the scope of each document are not the same when compared. API 505 mentions:

    • installations underground in mines
    • areas for the processing and manufacture of explosives
    • areas where the presence of flammable mist may give rise to an unpredictable risk and that require special consideration

    while API 500 does not.

    There might be other differences* it´s up to you to find them.

    Regards
