Use of permanent facility handling equipment for construction load handling is permitted only if authorized by the facility owner and conducted in accordance with the owner’s requirements. II load-handling equipment Is used during construction, when temporary use is completed. conditions of temporary use shall be evaluated to verify that the load-handling equipment continues to satisfy the specified requirements for its permanent intended use; the evaluation shall include an estimate of the number of load cycles. After construction use and prior to release for permanent operations, the permanent facility handling equipment shall he restored to its design configuration, and the facility handling equipment used for construction load handling shall be inspected and tested as specified in a procedure. The total load cycles used during construction shall be included in the fatigue evaluations for the permanent facility handling equipment.
The provisions of this Standard may be used for other than construction activities, including modifications and construction activities at operating facilities, when spedfled in contract documents.
Where this Standard references the use of consensus standards, they shall include the applicable requirements of the ASME 830 safety standards; ASME 8TH-i, ASME NOG-1, and ASME NUM-1, or CMAA 70 and CMAA 74; and ANSI/ASSE A10.5.
2.]. PLanning and Procedures
Planning, procedures, and instructions shall contain details such as weights, sling locations, center of gravity, ground (or floor) and support loading, methods of attachment, operating speeds, environmental conditions, and other pertinent features to be considered as necessary for safe handling. Planning shall provide for compliance with applicable federal, state, and local regulations.
2.2 CLassification of Items HandLed
The requirements for activities are based on classifing the Items into three categories according to their important physical characteristics. It is recognized that within the scope of each category there may be a range of controls, and that the need for, and extent of, detailed handling requirements for an item is dependent on the importance of the item to safe, reliable operation of the facility and the complexity of the operation.Pertinent manufacturer’s requirements shall be considered when classifying the items. Items for which handling activities are covered by this Standard shall be classified
into one of the three categories described in paras. 2.2.1 through 2.2.3. An item shall not be reclassified to a lower status without approval by the responsible organization that assigned the original category.
2.2.1 Category A. Items classified in Category A are those that require specially selected equipment not necessarily limited to special designed equipment (see para.3.3)and detailed procedures for handling operations because of large size and weight or potential for damage or safety hazard if mishandled. Items that may be assigned to this category include the following:
(a) reactor vessels
(b) steam generators
(c) major components of reactor vessel internals
(d) primary system pressurizers
(e) spent fuel casks
(f) subassemblies requiring specially selected equipment
(g) lifts over safety-related structures, systems, and components
(h) major turbine generator components
2.2.2 Category B. Items classified in Category B are those that shall be handled with conventional handling equipment but that require detailed procedures because of susceptibility to damage.
Items that may be assigned to this category include the following:
(a) reactor vessel head
(b) primary and intermediate coolant pumps and their internals.
