EEMUA Publication 168 Guide to pressure testing of equipment

Version: Digital/PDF

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

EEMUA 168 Edition 3 provides guidance on if, when and how pressure testing can be carried out on pressure equipment and systems, based on risk assessment and a safe system of work. Significantly, the new edition introduces a competency framework for pressure testing personnel.

The guidance applies to the lifecycle of pressure equipment and systems, from manufacture, and throughout their operating lifetime. It is applicable to all types of non-transportable industrial pressure equipment and systems, including pressure vessels and pipework. Some alternatives to pressure testing are also considered, and when it may be appropriate to employ them.

The publication is aimed primarily at the operatives, supervisors and leaders managing and carrying out pressure testing at manufacturers’ works, repair shops and industrial sites. The guidance aims to ensure that these organisations are fully aware of the risks and can use competent and qualified staff as well as formulate safe systems of work, to reduce risks to as low as reasonably practicable. 

This publication was revised through a working group of engineers from EEMUA member companies and representatives from industry partners including the IMechE Pressure Systems Group (PSG) and the Pressure Vessels Manufacturers Forum (PVMF). 

An EEMUA e-learning module based on Edition 3 of EEMUA 168 has been produced. Registered website users can access the EEMUA Pressure Testing Lessons Learned Repository

2016, Edition 7

ISBN: 978 0 85931 212 7

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

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 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 oil and gas, but also in chemicals, power generation, pharmaceuticals, food and beverages, manufacturing, martime and utilities. Typical sites include petrochemical processing and refining plants, 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.

Here are Amendment 1 and Amendment 2 to EEMUA Publication 186 Edition 7.

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

Ex e-learning at the awareness level. 
EEMUA recommends IntroEx, a free to use knowledge and awareness tool from CompEx Certification Limited, the CompEx Certification Body. It provides users with an overview of some of the basic principles of explosive atmospheres and takes approximately 20 minutes to complete.

2019, Edition 2

ISBN: 978 0 85931 221 9

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

Version: Digital/PDF

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

A hard copy version is also available.

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. The chapters are listed below:

- OVERVIEW OF INTEGRITY MANAGEMENT THROUGHOUT THE PLANT LIFECYCLE
- LEGISLATIVE CONSIDERATIONS
- EXAMINATION POLICY
- ORGANISATIONAL ARRANGEMENTS FOR INTEGRITY MANAGEMENT
- WRITTEN SCHEME OF EXAMINATION
- DELIVERY OF PERIODIC EXAMINATIONS
- REPORTING OF EXAMINATIONS AND INTEGRITY ASSESSMENT
- POSTPONEMENT OF EXAMINATION
- RECORD KEEPING
- CHANGE, REVIEW AND AUDIT
- OVERVIEW OF RELEVANT LEGISLATION (AND THEIR INTERACTION)
- OVERVIEW OF ISSUES TO CONSIDER IN A WRITTEN SCHEME OF EXAMINATION
- OVERVIEW OF RISK BASED INSPECTION

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.'

The guidance and good practice in EEMUA 231 can be applied on site through taking the EEMUA Mechanical Integrity Practitioner Certificate, a blended online learning training course. 

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

Need a certificated online introduction or refresher on key aspects of EEMUA 231 such as the postponing of examinations for PSSR and non-PSSR equipment? Then check out the EEMUA 231 Mechanical Integrity e-learning and EEMUA 177 Pressure Systems e-learning training courses.
