Equipment Operation and Maintenance

Managing the operation and maintenance of equipment is fundamental to all owners and users of industrial assets. Process complexities and different methods of achieving the same outcomes have resulted in a large number of equipment types and models.

From testing and installation of equipment, to operating periods, in-situ modifications, maintenance and overall life cycle management, EEMUA offers know-how for optimal operation and maintenance. It has particular expertise in pressure vessels, rotating machinery, piping systems, pressure relief systems and specialised equipment for dealing with hydrofluoric acid. In addition to these strengths, EEMUA membership also offers members the opportunity to collaborate with other member companies on key topics relevant to equipment operation and maintenance.

EEMUA members can collaborate on equipment operation related topics through a number of technical committees and benefit from relevant publications such as EEMUA Publication 208: ‘Guide to life-cycle management of pressure relief systems’. Where there is sufficient interest, there is discussion on the operation of less common types of equipment. EEMUA encourages these types of interactions which can provide ideas for new publications, forums or new technical committees.

Discussing equipment faults and failures and their implications for maintenance is a regular agenda item for a majority of EEMUA technical committees and EEMUA responds to industry-wide consultations as well as playing an active role on the committees of national and international standards. EEMUA members benefit from a number of maintenance related publications such as EEMUA Publication 184: ‘Guide to the isolation of pressure relieving devices’.
