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 218 Quality requirements for the manufacture and supply of duplex stainless steels

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 publication provides minimum quality requirements and recommendations for the manufacture and supply of duplex stainless steels. It covers all grades of duplex stainless steel and all components for both offshore (subsea and topsides) and onshore applications in the energy, chemical and other process industries. EEMUA 218 is aimed at manufacturers, designers, purchasers, stockists and end-users of these materials, all of whom have a role in ensuring quality. The consequences of using duplex stainless steel components that fail to meet requirements can be extremely serious. EEMUA members have noticed inconsistency in the quality of duplex steel components globally, despite most manufacturers and stockists having quality systems and detailed manufacturing specifications in place: hence the reason for developing this Publication.

EEMUA Publication 199 On-line leak sealing of piping: Guide to safety considerations

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.

Certain types of leak from pressurised piping (including valves) may be effectively contained by on-line sealing methods involving the use of elastomeric compounds. These (essentially temporary) repair methods were originally developed for application to leaking steam and condensate systems. However with additional safety precautions, they may be applied to process piping systems containing flammable, corrosive and/or toxic fluids. EEMUA 199 gives guidance on the limits of application of the technique, the factors to be considered when evaluating the feasibility of its use, the preparation and execution of the procedure and the type of risk assessment required.

EEMUA Publication 190 Guide for the design, construction and use of mounded horizontal cylindrical steel vessels for pressurised storage of LPG at ambient temperatures

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 guide addresses the design, materials selection, fabrication, installation, in-service inspection, testing and maintenance of mounded vessels for pressure storage of LPG. Mounded storage is generally safer than other methods of storing LPG, but the vessels, supported as they are on compacted soil foundations, are more liable to be affected by soil settlement than conventionally supported vessels. The guide therefore includes soil investigation and foundation design, in addition to considerations of pressure containment and corrosion protection.

EEMUA also offers introductory e-learning in the area of Storage Tanks in both Dutch and English language versions.

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.
