EEMUA Publication 227 Management of ageing electrical assets

Version: Digital/PDF

A hard copy version is also available.

EEMUA Publication 227 aims to provide a coherent, proactive system for managing certain ageing electrical assets.

Electrical equipment is often designed with a relatively long lifetime (typically 20 years) and the electrical engineer responsible for it has the challenge of ensuring the equipment’s integrity over this period, if not well beyond it. In justifying the continued service of equipment, the engineer has to take commercial (reliability, availability, replacement costs) and safety considerations into account. This is a difficult task, and in addition to general good asset management practice, the electrical engineer requires specific guidance relating to:

• Identifying potential failure mechanisms on ageing electrical assets;
• Methods of detecting early signs of failure mechanisms;
• Ways of calculating remaining expected life of electrical assets;
• Maintenance methods to extend electrical asset life; and
• Demonstrating the benefits of replacing equipment before failures occur.
This publication is focused on six types of electrical equipment that the EEMUA Electrical Committee prioritised as those where additional guidance would be most useful, either due to a lack of other guidance or an increase in incidents related to ageing asset issues. These are: Uninterruptable power supplies and Battery systems; Electrical drives; Electrical protection devices; Power cables; Switchgear (HV and LV); and Transformers. EEMUA 227 also provides general guidance on managing ageing electrical assets.

EEMUA Publication 168 Digital image

2010, Edition 2

ISBN: 978 0 85931 181 6

EEMUA Publication 168 A guide to the pressure testing of In-service pressurised equipment

Version: Digital/PDF

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

Since the First Edition of EEMUA 168 was published in 1991, there has been a significant rise in the understanding of the technology surrounding pressure testing. The variety and reliability of non-destructive testing techniques has increased and the application of fracture mechanics has provided a more quantitative approach. The new substantially revised Second Edition of EEMUA 168 reflects these developments and the concurrent changes to the standards for pressure vessels, particularly where ‘proof stress’ is of primary concern.

EEMUA Publication 175 Code of Practice for calibration and validation of process analysers 

Version: Digital/PDF

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

This comprehensively updated EEMUA Code of Practice provides a guide to the principles and methods used for calibrating and validating process (on-line) analysers. It provides detailed guidance on continued validation (in-service checking) and any required calibration adjustment, including the use of control charts. The publication is based on and supersedes the IP Codes 340/82, 341/82, 347/82, 348/82, 349/82 and 353/82.

EEMUA also offers introductory e-learning in the areas of Alarm Systems, Cyber Security and Functional Safety.

1998, Edition 1

ISBN: 978 0 85931 061 1

EEMUA Publication 176 Specification for structural castings for use offshore 

Version: Digital/PDF

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

In the construction of steel offshore platforms, cast nodes and lifting points may offer technical and/or economic advantages in manufacture compared with fabricated items. However, they must be comparable to fabricated items in terms of geometrical accuracy, weldability, and mechanical strength and toughness. Aimed at suppliers and purchasers alike, this Specification sets out the requirements for the design, manufacture and testing of carbon-manganese steel castings for use as structural members of offshore platforms, principally for North Sea conditions. Chemical and mechanical properties are specified, together with the requirements for fracture toughness, non destructive testing and weldability testing. The separate responsibilities of purchaser and supplier are also defined.

EEMUA also offers introductory e-learning on Subsea Materials.

EEMUA Publication 177 Guide to the UK Pressure Systems Safety Regulations (2000)

Version: Digital/PDF

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

EEMUA Publication 177 gives practical guidance on the interpretation of the UK Pressure Systems Safety Regulations (PSSR) 2000 relating to the periodic Examination of Pressure systems and certain associated aspects, and considers in particular Regulations 2, 7, 8, 9, 10 and 13, plus Schedule 2. The PSSR contains a complex series of requirements and allows for a considerable element of experienced, professional judgement by the User and/or Competent Person, together with a demand for careful interpretation.

Significantly, the new edition of EEMUA 177 includes guidance on the Postponement of Examinations within Regulation 9; a revision to the guidance on Regulation 10 Action in case of Imminent danger; additional guidance on Regulation 13 Modification and repair; together with other key points of interest based upon actual use of Pressure systems covered by the PSSR.

EEMUA 177 brings clarity by explaining how to approach specific aspects of the PSSR and helps minimise unclear areas that can cause confusion about what to do with respect to the Regulations. An example of this is with Regulation 10 wherein EEMUA 177 provides a flowchart that helps the Competent Person decide whether it is a case Imminent danger and needs to be reported to the HSE. The requirements under Regulation 10 are also given context with other relevant legislation. 

This publication was produced by a working group of EEMUA’s User Inspectorate Committee (UIC), which brings together experts from a range of industry sectors. Whilst the guide refers throughout to UK regulations and practice, much of the general advice is relevant to practice outside the UK.

EEMUA 177 does not refer in detail to the other Regulations already clearly expounded in the British Health and Safety Executive (HSE) Approved Code of Practice, Safety of Pressure Systems (ACOP) L122, which is freely available from the HSE. This EEMUA guide, therefore, should not be read in isolation, but should be used to augment the existing ACOP.  

The guidance and good practice in EEMUA 177 and 231 can be applied on site through taking the EEMUA Mechanical Integrity Practitioner Certificate, a blended online learning training course. At the awareness / introductory level, you may be interested in taking the EEMUA 177 Pressure Systems e-learning and EEMUA 231 Mechanical Integrity e-learning training courses.
