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 183 Digital image

2011, Edition 2

ISBN: 978 0 85931 183 0

EEMUA Publication 183 Prevention of tank bottom leakage - a guide for the design and repair of foundations and bottoms of vertical, cylindrical, steel storage tanks

Version: Digital/PDF

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

Leakage from storage tanks may lead to extensive environmental pollution and be a financial loss to owners. This guide addresses the problem of tank leakage caused by loss of integrity. Such loss is almost always caused by deterioration of the tank bottom, which itself may be caused by corrosion or by deterioration of the foundation. This second edition is a comprehensive update that takes account of changes in standards, regulations and improvements in technology. EEMUA 183 gives guidance on a range of topics affecting tank bottom integrity including: design considerations for various types of tank foundations and bottoms; causes of tank bottom leakage; inspection records and techniques; corrosion protection; leak detection systems; and membranes as soil barriers.

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

2019, Edition 3

ISBN: 978 0 85931 170 8

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

Version: Digital/PDF

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

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.

EEMUA Publication 185 Guide for hot tapping on piping and other equipment         

Version: Digital/PDF

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

Hot tapping, the term used when a branch is connected to a live or 'hot' piping system, is potentially hazardous particularly where flammable or toxic fluids are present. This publication offers guidance on how to carry out a safe and successful operation when hot tapping into metallic piping systems containing process fluids or their residues. It covers overall planning of the operation and includes hazard assessment and control, the constraints imposed by the nature, temperature and pressure of the process fluids, welding, testing and cutting (drilling/trepanning).
