SUPERVISION
§ 1.  — Type of supervision of stationary engines
5. Supervision shall be done from the stationary engine-room or from the control room if all measuring instruments and control devices provided for in sections 11 to 13 are found therein.
R.R.Q., 1981, c. M-6, r. 1, s. 5.
6. A stationary engineman shall not supervise 2 stationary engines simultaneously, except by remote control, if the distance between these stationary engines exceeds 60 m.
R.R.Q., 1981, c. M-6, r. 1, s. 6.
7. The critical distance between 2 stationary engines is established by using the following formula: D = 6 + 0.02 × P, where D is the critical distance in metres and P is the capacity in kilowatts of the largest stationary engine. The critical distance does not take into account the walls, floors or other obstacles separating the components of the installation. However, this distance shall not exceed 60 m.
R.R.Q., 1981, c. M-6, r. 1, s. 7.
8. The type of supervision for a multiple installation is established according to Schedule C by adding the capacity of each stationary engine in simultaneous operation.
R.R.Q., 1981, c. M-6, r. 1, s. 8.
9. The type of supervision for a mixed installation is established as follows:
(a)  by establishing the most rigid type of supervision with respect to different types of stationary engines in simultaneous operation and according to Schedule C;
(b)  by the computation of ratios between the total capacity of each type of stationary engine and their respective maximum capacity, as indicated in Schedule C for the type of supervision established under paragraph a; however, low-pressure refrigerating apparatus from Group A1 or B1 whose capacity exceeds 1,200 kW, high-pressure refrigerating apparatus from Group A1 or B1 using a compressor of the centrifugal type whose capacity exceeds 1,200 kW, steam engines and turbines whose capacity exceeds 250 kW may not have an influence on the type of supervision for an installation;
(c)  by the sum of these ratio;
(d)  if this sum is inferior or equal to the whole, the type of supervision for the installation is the same as the type established in paragraph a; and
(e)  if this sum is greater than the whole, the type of supervision for the installation becomes the type immediately more restrictive than that established in paragraph  a.
R.R.Q., 1981, c. M-6, r. 1, s. 9; O.C. 1809-89, s. 2.
10. An installation is considered to be protected when:
(a)  boilers are equipped with the following protective devices:
i.  a high-pressure limit control on steam boilers or a high-temperature limit control on hot-water boilers, as the case may be, and such controls shall be independent of any other device controlling the energy source;
ii.  a low-water level limit control independant of any other device controlling the feedwater supply to the steam boiler;
iii.  a high-water level limit control independant of any other device controlling the water-intake of the steam boiler; and
iv.  a pre-purge and flame failure device that will automatically prevent the supply of fuel to the boiler when an abnormal condition occurs during the operation of the boiler;
(b)  refrigerating apparatus are equipped with the following protective devices:
i.  a high-pressure limit control;
ii.  a low-pressure limit control; and
iii.  a low-pressure limit control in the lubricating oil system;
which devices automatically cut the energy supply to the prime mover of the compressor when an abnormal situation occurs during the operation of the compressors;
(c)  steam engines and turbines are equipped with a device which automatically cuts the steam supply when the engine or turbine exceeds its rated maximum speed;
(d)  in case of non-continuous supervision, an alarm system notifies the stationary engineman of any abnormal situation for which there is a protective device subject to paragraphs a, b or c.
R.R.Q., 1981, c. M-6, r. 1, s. 10.
11. Remote control supervision is allowed only within the same property and only if the control panel includes, in addition to those already in place according to the Act respecting pressure vessels (chapter A-20.01), the measuring instruments and control devices provided for in Schedule B.
R.R.Q., 1981, c. M-6, r. 1, s. 11.
12. A device which renders remote controls inoperative shall be installed near the stationary engine.
R.R.Q., 1981, c. M-6, r. 1, s. 12.
13. In the case where remote control supervision is allowed under sections 11 and 12, a periodic supervision shall be carried out on the stationary engine in conformity with sections 23 and 24.
R.R.Q., 1981, c. M-6, r. 1, s. 13.
§ 2.  — Establishing the capacity of stationary engines
14. The capacity of stationary engines is established by the manufacturer for normal and continuous operation under sections 15 to 18. However, in case of doubt or conflict, the board of examiners establishes a new capacity in accordance with the same sections.
R.R.Q., 1981, c. M-6, r. 1, s. 14.
15. In the case of a boiler, coiled tube boiler or thermal liquid boiler, with the exception of electric boilers, the capacity in kilowatts is established by dividing by 3.6 × 106 the difference between the total quantity of heat in joules contained in the fluid which enters the boiler and the total quantity of heat contained in the fluid leaving the boiler per hour. In the case of an electric boiler, the capacity in kilowatts is equal to the maximum number of kilowatts supplied to the boiler.
R.R.Q., 1981, c. M-6, r. 1, s. 15.
16. In the case of a motor or a turbine, the capacity in kilowatts is established by multiplying the mechanical HP by 0.746 for a service factor of 1.
R.R.Q., 1981, c. M-6, r. 1, s. 16.
17. In the case of a steam generator, the capacity in kilowatts is established according to section 15 but in relation to the steam generated.
R.R.Q., 1981, c. M-6, r. 1, s. 17.
18. In the case of a refrigerating apparatus, the capacity is established in relation to the engine or engines which operate it with a service factor of 1:
(a)  in the case of a triphase electric motor, when the capacity is not established by the manufacturer, it is established by using one or the other of the following formulas which take into account a power factor of 90% and an efficiency of 80%:
i.  kW = 0.001 245 × E × I
where: E is the potential difference in volts; and I is the rated current in amperes;
ii.   kW = 0.80 × kWe
where: kWe is the rated number of kilowatts supplied at the intake;
iii.  kW = 0.72 × kVA
where: kVA is the rated number of kilovolt-amperes;
(b)  in the case of an internal combustion engine, when the capacity in kilowatts is not established by the manufacturer, it is established by multiplying by 0.046 the product of the square of the diameter of the cylinders in centimetres, by the number of cylinders.
R.R.Q., 1981, c. M-6, r. 1, s. 18.
§ 3.  — Type of supervision
A) Continuous supervision
19. Continuous supervision shall be ensured by a stationary engineman who shall not leave the stationary engine-room or the control room, unless he is replaced by a stationary engineman who holds a certificate in a class not more than one degree less than that required to supervise the operation of the installation as a chief stationary engineman.

R.R.Q., 1981, c. M-6, r. 1, s. 20.
B) Non-continuous supervision
21. Non-continuous supervision shall be ensured by a stationary engineman who sees to the supervision, maintenance and verification of the stationary engine installation and of any other apparatus, components and piping used in the operation of such installation, and also, the supervision of other installations located on the same property and for which a periodic supervision only is permitted. However, the stationary engineman shall be present in the stationary engine-room or the control room during at least half of the time and the out-periods cannot exceed one hour per 2-hour period without the stationary engineman being replaced by a stationary engineman who holds a certificate in a class not more than one degree less than that required to supervise the operation of the installation as a chief stationary engineman.
R.R.Q., 1981, c. M-6, r. 1, s. 21.
22. A non-continuous supervision is required for the operation of the following installations that are protected by the protective devices provided for in section 10:

§ 2.  — Classification of installations
40. Installations are classified as to their type and capacity under Schedule D with respect to the total capacity of stationary engines, in operating condition, to be supervised except if an attestation from the owner or user, countersigned by the chief engineman, if such person has been appointed or if not, by a stationary engineman, states that a stationary engine in such installation never operates at the same time as the others. In case of doubt or litigation, the board of examiners may demand a physical means of ensuring that the stationary engine concerned cannot be in operation at the same time as the rest of the installation.
However, in the case of an installation comprising high-pressure boilers and low-pressure steam boilers, other than of the coiled tube type, the sum of the capacities of both types of installations must be computed in order to establish the classification of the installation determined in Schedule D by using the same values of maximum total capacity applicable to the classification of an installation of the high-pressure boiler type.
Also, in the case of an installation composed of Group A2, B2, A3 or B3 and Group A1 or B1 refrigerating apparatus, the classification of the installation changes to Class A when its total capacity exceeds 900 kW or when the total capacity of the Group A2, B2, A3 or B3 apparatus exceeds 250 kW.
