EEMUA Publication 211 Guidance on the specification of pressure vessels

http://www.eemua.org/Products/Publications/Print/EEMUA-Publication-211.aspx

This updated guidance deals with the specification of pressure vessels for a variety of different circumstances not addressed in design codes. It brings together the practical lessons learnt about design, manufacturing and testing of pressure vessels based on users’ experience. The guidance examines the circumstances under which repeat post-weld heat treatment (PWHT) may be waived; describes methods for assessing both existing and new pressure vessels for exceptional internal pressures; and covers improvements in the specification and reliability of nozzles. Additionally, the 2nd Edition includes a major new chapter on creep damage.

EEMUA Publication 168 A guide to the pressure testing of In-service pressurised equipment

http://www.eemua.org/Products/Publications/Print/EEMUA-Publication-168.aspx

Since the First Edition of EEMUA 168 was published in 1991, there has been a significant rise in the understanding of the technology surrounding pressure testing. The variety and reliability of non-destructive testing techniques has increased and the application of fracture mechanics has provided a more quantitative approach. The new substantially revised Second Edition of EEMUA 168 reflects these developments and the concurrent changes to the standards for pressure vessels, particularly where ‘proof stress’ is of primary concern.

EEMUA Publication 223 Pressure equipment testing after repair, modifications or re-rating: a guide to the Pressure Test Waiver

http://www.eemua.org/Products/Publications/Print/EEMUA-Publication-223.aspx

This Publication has been developed, in close liaison with the British Health & Safety Executive (HSE), to assist owners and operators of pressure equipment to determine where it may be permissible to waive a hydrostatic pressure test before re-introducing equipment into service and instead rely on other forms of integrity assurance. EEMUA 223 relates to ‘in-service’ situations, such as testing after major modification, significant repair or re-rating, rather than new build.

EEMUA Publication 193 Managing competence assurance for personnel undertaking in-service inspection of pressure equipment

http://www.eemua.org/Products/Publications/Print/EEMUA-Publication-193.aspx

This EEMUA Publication is a recommended practice for Inspection Bodies operating in the process, energy and related industries, whose primary responsibility is for pressure equipment. It presents a structured training, development and competency assessment process for inspection personnel. This revised Second Edition incorporates changes in practice and legislation since first publication in 1998. The scope of this EEMUA Publication is limited to in-service inspection of industrial pressure equipment which is taken to mean all inspections excluding new build and commissioning.
