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.

ISBN: 978 0 85931 237 0

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: Digital/PDF

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

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 191 Alarm systems - a guide to design, management and procurement 

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.

Alarm systems form an essential part of the operator interfaces to large modern industrial facilities. They provide vital support to the operators by warning them of situations that need their attention and have an important role in preventing, controlling and mitigating the effects of abnormal situations. Since it was first published in 1999, EEMUA 191 has become the globally accepted and leading guide to good practice for all aspects of alarm systems. 

  • Providing clear guidance for both existing and new alarm systems
  • Written by alarm systems experts working on high hazard sites
  • Informed by real-world process safety experiences
  • Acknowledged as good practice by leading regulators
  • Aligned with international standards
  • Contributing to plant safety, efficiency and compliance
  • Globally applicable across a wide range of industry sectors

The publication, developed by users of alarm systems with input from the GB Health and Safety Executive, gives comprehensive guidance on designing, managing and procuring an effective alarm system. It is intended to help in improving existing systems and in developing new facilities during plant construction or during alarm system refurbishments. Both of the international standards for the management of alarm systems for the process industries, ISA 18.2 from the International Society of Automation and IEC 62682: 2015, are aligned with EEMUA 191. The new Third Edition has been comprehensively updated and includes guidance on implementing the alarm management philosophy in practice; applications in geographically distributed processes; and performance metrics and KPIs. 

EEMUA 191 is primarily concerned with alarm systems provided for people operating industrial processes. These include alarm systems in industries such as chemical manufacture, power generation, oil and gas extraction and refining and others. However, much of the guidance is generic and with appropriate interpretation can be applied in other sectors. For example, the guide has been used successfully as a basis for training in the rail and transport sectors, in the nuclear industry, and elsewhere.
