EEMUA Publication 159 Above ground flat bottomed storage tanks - a guide to inspection, maintenance and repair

Version: Print

If you are a user from an EEMUA member company, please log in and download your complimentary digital edition here.

A digital/PDF version is also available.

EEMUA Publication 159 is considered to be the most comprehensive users' guide available on above ground vertical cylindrical, steel storage tanks. It is also used worldwide by regulators as an example of what good practice looks like.

EEMUA 159 is intended to assist in the establishment of essential inspection and maintenance requirements in order to minimise in-service problems and extend the useful life of these storage tanks. It offers guidance on tanks built to BS, EN or API standards for the storage of petroleum and chemical feed-stocks and products and refrigerated gases. These standards include BS 2654, API 620 and API 650, DIN 4119-1 and -2, CODRES, G0801 and EN 14015.

This new edition builds on previous work with additional material to reflect the advances in technology, understanding and operational information. Chapters that have been significantly updated include those on corrosion of tanks, general inspection techniques and interpretation of inspection data, fixed roofs, floating roofs, hydrotesting and probabilistic preventive maintenance (PPM). There are also completely new chapters on mothballing, turn-around procedures, aluminium domes and operation at elevated temperatures. Significantly, a new climate code has been added for Arctic conditions. There is also more focus on innovations and new inspection techniques.

The PPM methodology provides what is believed to be the world's only combined theory of risk based inspection (RBI) and reliability centred maintenance (RCM). The different and non-harmonised methodologies of RBI and RCM, since their initiations throughout various aspects of industry (not only storage tanks), have never been combined in the way proposed and implemented in EEMUA 159. The process is time-based, condition-based and reactive. 

The publication sets out key features for planning and executing inspection, maintenance and repair works. It includes descriptions of the key tank components that require inspection and maintenance, degradation mechanisms and common inspection techniques, and details on tank lifting. 

Comprehensive guidance is given on many key design features, on common problems experienced during operation and on repair methods. There are numerous new sections, such as on snow loading, planar tilt and overplating. Appendices offer guidance on how to perform assessment calculations on tank components, illustrated by means of sample calculations, as well as on repair methods.

EEMUA 159 is also the foundation for EEMUA's storage tank training and competency courses including e-learning in Dutch and English.

EEMUA Publication 207 Double concrete tanks for liquefied gas – guide to design, construction and operation 

Version: Print

If you are a user from an EEMUA member company, please log in and download your complimentary digital edition here.

A digital/PDF version is also available.

This pioneering guide draws together good and best practices for the engineering of double-walled concrete tanks (with or without metal liner) intended for the bulk storage of refrigerated gas liquids. It is unique in bringing together guidance for specifying the design, materials selection, fabrication, installation, testing commissioning and operational requirements of refrigerated and cryogenic storage tanks made from double (pre-stressed) concrete tanks as an alternative for tanks constructed with 7% or 9% Ni steel inner tanks.

Following the guide should reduce the risk of mistakes and poor practice during design, construction and commissioning. The publication should also resolve many of the technical issues encountered during double concrete tank projects, thus reducing the need for ‘technical debate’ and improving project timescales, costs and quality. Similarly, it should provide the engineering contractor with detailed information that will minimise the risk of obtaining varying quotations from tank constructors; it benefits the tank designer by giving them a clear basis for their calculations; and it informs tank construction companies of the quality of testing and examination required for materials, construction methods and tank structure.

ISBN: 978 0 85931 212 7

EEMUA Publication 186 A Practitioner's Handbook for potentially explosive atmospheres 

Version: Print

EEMUA 186 offers guidance for safe installation, inspection and maintenance work in potentially explosive atmospheres when the failure to adopt safe working practices could result in the ignition of flammable gases or combustible dusts. It is concerned with ignition caused by electrical and mechanical sources and is based on the requirements of international and European standards, directives and regulations.

This seventh edition has been further updated to align with the latest versions of the relevant standards, in particular the fifth (2013) editions of IEC 60079-14 and 60079-17. EEMUA 186 interprets the relevant parts of the standards, and brings them together in one clear, understandable and easily navigable resource. The chapters on equipment, installation and inspection have been revised extensively, including EEMUA’s recommendations on barrier gland selection. There are separate chapters on: fuel filling stations; hazardous areas in the water and waste water industries and mechanical ignition sources. Application design engineering and the duties of the Responsible Person as defined in IEC standards are also covered.

Potentially explosive atmospheres occur in many industries, not only in onshore and offshore petrochemical processing and refining plants, but also in places such as power stations, liquor distilleries, paint spraying plants, flour mills, woodworking plants and coal handling plants. 

EEMUA Publication 186 is closely associated with the CompEx® training and competency assessment scheme which provides trainees with essential knowledge and practical skills for safe working in potentially explosive atmospheres.
