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.

EEMUA Publication 225 Digital image

2017, Edition 1

ISBN: 978 0 85931 199 1

EEMUA Publication 225 Above ground plastic tanks: a guide to their specification, installation, commissioning, inspection, maintenance, repair and disposal

Version: Digital/PDF

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

EEMUA 225 provides practical, pragmatic guidance to owners and operators on all stages of the lifecycle of above ground plastic tanks. The publication fills a major gap in industry knowledge by detailing good practice in the management of these tanks which are too often viewed as 'fit and forget' items compared to steel tanks. Taking into account the specific conditions of tank usage, EEMUA 225 can help to reduce the risk of failure in service and enable the extension of service life where appropriate.

The gudance is aimed mainly at cylindrical plastic tanks being operated at atmospheric pressure or at pressures above the liquid head up to 0.5 barg. It is not therefore intended for tanks which would be classed as pressure vessels under the Pressure Equipment Directive (PED), although some of its content may still be relevant and useful to users operating plastic pressure vessels in what are usually quite specific applications.

Some key aspects of EEMUA 225 are the basis of EEMUA's Plastic Tanks e-learning.

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.

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.

EEMUA Publication 215 Industrial cooling tower fans and fin fans - Guide for design, maintenance and operation

Version: Digital/PDF

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

This publication provides proven guidance for good design, maintenance and operation of mechanical draught cooling tower fans and fin fans used in air cooled heat exchangers. If fans are neglected until they fail, there is often extensive damage to the housing and danger of pieces of blade being thrown out. As well as causing damage to plant, this type of failure presents an unacceptable risk to the safety of personnel.

EEMUA 215 addresses the lack of accepted standards for rotating equipment such as fin fans and cooling tower fans and gives plant maintenance engineers or project engineers a framework for the maintenance routines and details of what is required. The new edition documents established good practice for assembly, repair, inspection and maintenance of fin fans and cooling tower fans as well as outlining the modes of mechanical failure.
