EEMUA Publication 231 - The mechanical integrity of plant containing hazardous substances: a guide to periodic examination and testing 

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 free of charge through the EEMUA e-shop.

EEMUA 231 provides guidance and good practice on safely managing the combined hazards of stored energy and dangerous substances through maintaining the integrity of systems and equipment by periodic examination and testing.

The publication is based on the well-established Written Scheme of Examination (WSE) model in the UK Pressure Systems Safety Regulations and associated Approved Code of Practice. As such, EEMUA 231 underpins the approach that integrity management is a matter for the whole plant life cycle. 

This second edition of EEMUA 231 adds a new section on leadership, a fundamental aspect of managing health and safety effectively, and provides guidance on the relief streams that protect equipment or systems. EEMUA 231 has been given greater clarity by combining the sections on Reporting of examinations and Post examination integrity assessment. There is also a clearer demarcation between the roles of Integrity Assessor and Competent Person.

EEMUA 231 has been developed and written by EEMUA and the Safety Assessment Federation (SAFed) in consultation with the Health and Safety Executive, together with other interested stakeholders who use such plant, including operators, inspection bodies and providers of specialist services to the process industries. 

The GB Health and Safety Executive (HSE) states in its Foreword to EEMUA 231 that it: 'considers maintenance of the integrity of plant containing hazardous substances to be a fundamental element of good process safety management. To this end, we believe this document provides a sound basis from which to develop arrangements for the management and delivery of periodic examinations aimed at achieving this.'

EEMUA 231 provides the foundation for a one day EEMUA training course on mechanical integrity.

EEMUA Publication 179 image

1996, Edition 1

ISBN: 978 0 85931 085 X

EEMUA Publication 179 A working guide for carbon steel equipment in wet H2S service

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.

Developed largely from oil refinery experience, this publication is aimed at providing guidance on minimising the damaging effects of wet H2S (hydrogen sulphide) on process plant, taking account of operating conditions, risk assessment, materials selection, fabrication, inspection (both of new and in-service equipment) and repairs. It comprises recommendations based on practical user experience of working with equipment in wet H2S service, together with relevant from reputable sources. EEMUA 179 is applicable to any process plant handling wet H2S, and should be used in conjunction with User Standards to derive a policy for addressing problems or potential problems in new and existing equipment.

EEMUA Publication 184 - Guide to the isolation of pressure relieving devices

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.

In order to permit their removal and replacement without plant shutdown, pressure relieving devices may need to be isolated from the equipment they protect. However, the installation of isolating valves around protective devices is potentially hazardous as it introduces the risk of a system being left unprotected against over-pressure due to the relief path being inadvertently closed off. Existing standards offer little or no detailed guidance in this area.

EEMUA 184 plugs the gap by expanding on the guidance given in API RP 520 Part II and incorporating EEMUA Information Sheet 50 - The Importance of isolation management around relief systems. It outlines the case for using relief valves as a layer of protection, gives advice on managing safe isolation and stresses the importance of safe de-isolation after completion of relief system work. EEMUA 184 provides several examples in loss prevention history where the failure to adequately manage relief system isolations has been a major factor in causing process safety incidents.

It is essential to conform to local statutory legislation or regulations in relation to the use, and isolation of, relief devices. In some countries, conformance to certain standards and codes may be a mandatory requirement and specific standards, such as those pertaining to boilers, may specifically prohibit the installation of isolation devices.

2000, Edition 1

ISBN: 978 0 85931 126 0

EEMUA Publication 200 Guide to the specification, installation and maintenance of spring supports for piping

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.

A common problem faced on construction sites and operating plants with certain piping systems, is a lack of specialist knowledge on effective and safe setting and maintenance of piping spring supports, particularly where there is a significant temperature difference between the hot (operating) and cold (shutdown) conditions of the plant. EEMUA 200 aims to address this problem by providing data on the specification of piping supports (in particular the information required by the manufacturer), information to be recorded in the pipe support index, installation and commissioning procedures, in-service inspection and maintenance, and dynamic restraints.

This publication addresses the problem. It covers the specification of piping supports—in particular the information required by the manufacturer—the information to be recorded in the pipe support index, installation and commissioning procedures, in-service inspection and maintenance, and, as a separate section, dynamic restraints.
