    Pressure sensing instruments that can be clogged due to high viscosity fluids or hydrates or if the
    measurement can be affected by other factors, shall be equipped with chemical seals.

    Pressure instruments shall have individual process isolation valves.

    Combined solutions may be used when not causing operational disadvantage/safety reduction during
    service of instruments etc.

    Each pressure instrument with process connection shall be fitted with an instrument block /bleed
    manifold (2/5 – way valve).

    Full functional independence between control and safety devices shall be assured, including
    vessel/pipeline connections (e.g. common pressure tap for control and safety devices shall not be

    The use of combined manifolds for piping and instrument valves shall be evaluated.

    manifolds should be used when instruments are direct mounted on or in the immediate vicinity of the

    Package suppliers shall terminate hydraulic and pneumatic tubing at skid edge with bulkhead male
    connectors or unions.

    Package suppliers shall terminate instrumentation cables in junction boxes at skid edge or at agreed
    termination point.

    If safety and functional requirements are fulfilled, the following shall apply:

    Field instrument process connection: 1/2 ” NPT ref. ANSI/ASME B1.20.1.

    Field instrument pneumatic connection : 1/4 ” NPT

    Field instrument hydraulic connection: 1/2″ NPT

    Field instrument cable entry: ISO threads – size depending on cable size.
