EEMUA Publication 243 - Guide to mechanical connector selection and lifecycle

Version: Digital/PDF

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

EEMUA 243 provides an overview of the selection, installation and maintenance of a variety of mechanical pipe connector designs which can be used as an alternative to hot work. 

The primary function of the connectors covered in this guidance is to join two pipes whilst maintaining pressure containment and not for the purpose of leak sealing or providing mechanical strength to a damaged section of piping. EEMUA 243 focuses on key points for Users to select the most appropriate mechanical connector for the specific application and when developing their maintenance and inspection strategies for these components post installation. 

The design of the mechanical connectors included in EEMUA 243 are often proprietary and are classed as ASME B31.3 Unlisted Components. For this reason, the User should work closely with the OEM when developing their strategy, while using this guidance to supplement their knowledge and considerations. The remit of EEMUA 243 does not cover threaded fittings, flanged joints, or mechanical clamp repairs (as defined by ASME PCC-2). 

This publication was developed by engineers who work exclusively in the oil and gas sector, as well as OEM technical specialists. Although the use of EEMUA 243 was originally targeted for the topside and upstream industry, it is recognised that it may be applicable to a range of other industries including: shipping, mining, steel, chemicals, nuclear, water, and food and beverages. It is expected that the reader will have a basic competency in piping design.

EEMUA Publication 154 Digital image

2017, Edition 3

ISBN: 978 0 85931 210 3

EEMUA Publication 154 Demolition of vertical cylindrical steel storage tanks and LPG spheres

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 154 provides guidance on good practice for the end of life safe demolition of storage tanks and spheres. It would typically be used by a facilities or integrity manager. This guidance is intended to assist the owner in evaluating the acceptability of the demolition methods proposed and the steps necessary to ensure a satisfactory and safe outcome.

In the last thirty years many storage tanks have been demolished worldwide. In some cases the owners entered into contracts with demolition contractors without sufficient knowledge of the problems involved. As a consequence a number of serious and sometimes fatal accidents have occurred. EEMUA 154 specifies the minimum responsibilities of the owners of the tank that is being demolished as well as those of the selected contractor..

EEMUA Publication 159 Digital image

2018, 5th Edition, including Amendment 1

ISBN: 978 0 85931 218 9

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

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 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. In addition, since EEMUA 159 contains information on many topics that are not covered in API 653, the EEMUA publication can be considered complementary to the API standard.

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 Publication 231 can be used in conjunction with EEMUA 159 to develop the scope of inspection for storage tanks.
