New edition of EEMUA 159 tank guidance launched 24 June 2014

EEMUA (Engineering Equipment and Materials Users Association) has published Edition 4 of its tank guidance, EEMUA 159, 'Above ground flat bottomed storage tanks – a guide to inspection, maintenance and repair'.

EEMUA 159 has undergone a complete revision, with appendices now offering additional guidance on how to perform assessment calculations on tank components, illustrated by sample calculations, as well as on repair methods.

There are also new sections, including on snow loading, planar tilt and overplating.

EEMUA 159 is intended primarily to assist in the establishment of essential inspection and maintenance requirements for aboveground vertical cylindrical, steel storage tanks.

However, comprehensive guidance is also provided on key design features, common problems experienced during operation and repair methods.

The new edition also introduces what EEMUA believes is the world's only combined risk based inspection (RBI) and reliability centred maintenance (RCM) - the probabilistic preventive maintenance methodology.

The process is described as time-based, condition-based and reactive.

The new Edition 4 is available to purchase directly from EEMUA.
