9.3.1) Instrument Cable tray installations shall meet the requirements


of General notes on Grounding & Cable Trays in IFC,
Manufacturers Instructions and the NEC.

9.3.2) Cable Tray shall be supported on straight horizontal runs at a


maximum span of 6100 mm (20 ft) and within 610 mm (2 ft) of
fittings. Splice plates shall be located within 25% of span
distance from support. Splice points shall not be located directly
over support points.

9.3.3) Vertical cable tray runs shall be supported at 2400 mm (8ft)


maximum.

9.3.4) Supports (Hot dipped galvanized, Unistrut channels, steel C-


channels, steel angle bars, flat bars) shall be welded to
structural steel columns and not limited to anchoring to
concrete column if necessary otherwise specify. Approved
galvanized coating will be done for damaged galvanized
surfaces. Before touch-up coat, the metal surface must be
cleaned, brushed to ensure effective coatings.

9.3.5) All instrumentation cable tray systems shall be connected to the


plant grounding system at intervals of 30 meters (98 ft) and at
each end as per approved IFC drawing.

9.3.6) All material of cable tray components and accessories shall be


inspected and approved by company before installation.

9.3.7) For Location and Routing, Cable tray may be used as a cable
support system in non-hazardous and Class I, Division 2
locations with any of the electrical code approved multi-
conductor cables and single conductor cables #1/0 AWG and
larger.

9.3.8) Cable tray shall run parallel to building walls and structures as
well as control board and other control apparatus.

9.3.9) Cable trays shall be routed to minimize the potential to fire


exposure and also to minimize the consequences of fire
propagating along the tray. Cable tray should be located above
all process piping and other process facilities. When routing
beneath process piping is unavoidable, covers may be necessary
to protect cables from process leaks.

9.3.10) Routing shall be carefully chosen to avoid passing close to


equipment such as steam lines, resistor grids or any process
equipment which is capable of producing temperatures injurious
to the cable tray or the cables. Ambient temperature at any

cable tray location shall not exceed 50-degrees C (122 degrees


F).

9.3.11) Cable trays entering a building should be sloped away from the
building so rain water will not be conveyed into the building by
tracking along the cables. Use a slope of 40mm per meter (1/2"
per foot) minimum.

9.3.12) For supports, cable tray shall be adequately supported by non-


combustible racks, hangers or other reliable means (such as
structural steel of pipeways) at intervals compatible with the
building structure and lengths of cable tray sections.

9.3.13) Do not cantilever any section. Provide additional structural


support at the section end or continue the section to the next
structural support.

9.3.14) Horizontal supports should provide adequate bearing surface for


the tray as well as provisions for hold down clamps or fasteners.
A minimum recommended bearing surface is 45mm (1-3/4
inches).

9.3.15) Hold-down clips and support fitting shall be provided at each


support point. Expansion guides should be used at each support
point except where the tray is hung with rods.

9.3.16) Supports for vertical cable tray should provide secure means,
other than friction, for fastening the cable tray to the supports.
Expansion guides will not support the vertical load of a cable
tray. Bolting shall be through the side rail. If the tray is
fiberglass, this bolting through the flange may split the
fiberglass. In this case, angles or channels turned at right angle
to the tray run with thru-bolting through the side rails of the
tray will provide the secure support for the loading.

9.3.17) For cable Tray Spacing, Vertical tiers shall be separated by a


clear space of not less than 450mm (18 inches). Where less
than 18 inches must be used, a non-combustible solid barrier
supported so as not to obstruct ventilation should be provided
between tiers. When the total combined width of any level
exceeds 900mm (36 inches), the vertical spacing between tiers
should be increased to a minimum of 600mm (24 inches).

9.3.18) A minimum vertical clearance of 300mm (12 inches) should be


maintained from the top of the tray to the bottom of ceilings,
beams and other obstructions. This distance should be increased
to 450mm (18 inches) where the total width of a tier exceeds
900mm (36 inches).

9.3.19) Sufficient horizontal space should be provided for locating the


tray on the supports so that there is ample space to attach clips
and bolts. Normally, a 75mm (3") space between adjacent trays
and a 75mm (3") space between the side of a tray and any
vertical support provides adequate horizontal space to locate the
trays properly.

9.3.20) For Cable Tray Fittings, Horizontal elbows should be used


whenever a change of direction is necessary at the same
elevation. Outside elbows should be used whenever the vertical
drop exceeds 1.50 M (5 feet).

9.3.21) Final alignment shall be done after installing the Cable tray.
Ensure all cable tray sizes, routing, and elevation shall be as per
approved IFC drawing.

9.3.22) Tighten the cable tray bolts after alignment.

9.3.23) Installation to be inspected as per applicable ITP, by the


company.

9.3.24) All runs of cable tray must be applied with extension joints to
absorb any thermal reaction cause by climate condition or any
thermal effect by environment.

9.3.25) Expansion joints installation is as per IFC Drawings notes.

9.3.26) All cable tray support must be fabricated and installed in a


skillful manner considering proportionality and alignment.

9.3.27) All support installed shall be level and plumb.

9.3.28) Bonding/grounding of cable trays shall meet the requirements in


NEC 2008, Art. 250 Grounding and Bonding.

9.3.29) Instrument cable tray shall be electrically and mechanically


continuous.

9.3.31) All prefabricated fittings like tee, bend, reducer etc. shall be
used in installation of trays, and fabrication of tray fittings is not
permitted at site.

9.3.32) After completion of cabling works the cable trays which installed
outdoor must be installed for adequate covers.
