4 Delivery

4.1 General

If the manufacturer considers that the requirements of this document are insufficient for the loading and the transpor- tation of the GRP tank or vessel for the purposes of any particular delivery, he shall provide the necessary additional information.

NOTE

A recommended check list of those items which should be verified is given in Annex C (informative).

4.2 Low temperature effects

The possible effects on the material properties of the GRP tank or vessel of ambient temperatures experienced during transportation shall, as far as possible, be taken into consideration, especially temperatures less than 5 °C.

Licensed Copy: Lana Brits Amitech Industrial 13/10/2008 15:27

4.3 Pre-delivery check

A pre-delivery check shall be made to ensure that:

the appropriate inspection certificate is available;

the tank/vessel is correctly identified;

the tank/vessel is in its as-released condition;

EN 13121-4:2005 (E)

all branches are blanked with either service blanks or temporary covers.

NOTE

To avoid damage to the GRP tank or vessel during delivery, temporary bracings should be used.

4.4 Storage

If, after unloading, the GRP tank or vessel cannot immediately be installed in its final position, it shall be stored as follows:

a) Wherever possible the GRP tank or vessel shall be stored in the design orientation i.e. vertical tank or vessel shall be stored (supported and anchored) vertically. If it is not possible to store the item in their operational orientation it may be stored otherwise with special considerations on supporting and anchoring. The use of saddles or supporting timbers with wedges may be necessary.

b) The storage area shall be level and free from protrusions or ridges to avoid point loading. The GRP vessel or tank shall be located in an area remote from vehicular traffic or suitably protected from traffic. Consideration shall be given to movements due to wind on the empty item and temporary anchors shall be provided.

4.5 Lifting devices

Where the lifting device will make direct contact with GRP surfaces, synthetic fibre flat webbing slings shall be used. The minimum width of the slings shall be 80 mm.

4.6 Loading

The GRP tank or vessel shall be lifted and handled in a suitable manner according to the state of the art; appropriate manners are shown in the examples in Annex A (informative) and Annex B (informative).

The lifting devices shall be attached to the GRP tank or vessel in correspondence with the design of the tank or vessel.

All lifts shall take into the consideration the site and atmospheric conditions, especially wind.

All lifts shall avoid any impact.

Loading details shall be recorded.

NOTE

This may be done by e.g. using the form given in Annex C (informative).

4.7 Transportation

Installation

5.1 General

The manufacturer shall advise the methods of installation of the GRP tank or vessel.

NOTE 1

The installation should be carried out by trained personnel only.

NOTE 2

The details of installation should be recorded, e.g. using the form given in Annex D (informative).

installation should be recorded, e.g. using the form given in Annex D (informative).   5.2 Pre-installation

A pre-installation check shall be made to ensure that:

a) supporting structures or foundations are suitable for the installation;

b) supporting structures or foundations are within the specified tolerances;

c) if necessary, the item is protected from flotation.

Pre-installation details shall be recorded, e.g. using the form given in Annex D (informative).

5.3 Preparation of installation location

5.3.1 Requirements for installation surfaces

The supporting structure shall meet the requirements of the manufacturer of the GRP tank or vessel.

5.3.2

Preparation for support and erection of tanks or vessels

5.3.2.1

Flat-bottomed tanks or vessels

a) Installation on flat and even surfaces

The foundation shall be flat and level within 2 mm/m with an overall maximum deviation of 5 mm. Flat- bottomed tanks/vessels shall be erected vertically with a maximum deviation of 0,5°.

b) Installation using a bedding material

On uneven foundations or in case of uneven tank or vessel bottoms, a fresh bedding material of a sufficient thickness shall be used to ensure contact between the foundation and the bottom.

NOTE The bedding material, e.g. cement screed, polymer concrete, sodium/potassium water glass sand mixtures and bituminous sand mixtures, rubber, bitumen felt should be laid shortly before erection ensuring that any orientation marks are visible. The bedding material should be covered to prevent adhesion to the tank/vessel.

c) Installation on piers or beams

Installation on piers, beams or gratings shall be in accordance with the design.

5.3.2.2 Horizontal tanks/vessels

Saddle supports shall be as designed.

NOTE

The saddle support should be installed with a tolerance of ±1 mm/m separation.

EN 13121-4:2005 (E)

5.3.2.3 Circumferential skirt supported vertical tanks or vessels

The tank or vessel shall be installed vertically with a maximum deviation of 0,5°. The alignment may be achieved by placing suitable load-bearing shims, on either side of the anchor bolts. Any gap between the skirt and the supporting structure shall be filled with a load-bearing infill before commissioning.

5.3.2.4 Tanks or vessels with supporting legs

Tanks or vessels with supporting legs shall be installed vertically with a maximum deviation of 0,5° and securely anchored to the supporting structure. The legs shall be shimmed using a load-bearing material to ensure that the tank or vessel is uniformly supported.

5.3.2.5 Drop-through tanks or vessels with separate supporting rings

When using drop-through tanks or vessels it shall be ensured that the support arrangement, whether continuous or split, will support the tank/vessel uniformly.

5.4 Bolting

5.4.1 Anchor bolting

The bolting work shall be carried out in accordance with the design of the tank or vessel.

5.4.2 Nozzle bolting

The opposite lying bolts shall be tightened in pairs. Any following pair of bolts shall to be selected at the widest angle to the axis of the previous pair.

5.4.3

Bolt torques

5.4.3.1

Torques for anchoring

Nuts shall be tightened until they reach the contact surface. All nuts shall be locked by a counter nut.

5.4.3.2 Torques for bolting

The torques for bolting shall be specified by the manufacturer.

5.5 Connections

Pipework shall be supported at all times so that local loads on nozzles do not exceed the design value.

NOTE Flange and nozzle protection (e.g. covers) should be left during installation of the tank or vessel until needed for connection of piping or ancillary equipment.

5.6 Attachments

Ladders, platforms and other attachments shall be fitted in accordance with the design and without causing undue stress to the tank/vessel.

Guidance notes for maintenance

E.1 General

a) Maintenance measures should be settled by instructions for use, cleaning and servicing, repairing or replacing, visual inspections and tests.

b) Monitoring the service conditions and frequency of inspections and tests should be controlled by the user considering the appropriate documentation and in compliance with statutory regulations.

E.2 Service conditions

a) Tanks/vessels in conformity to this document have materials specified and have been designed for specific service conditions.

b) The service conditions are limited to the specified contents, its concentration, relative density and static head, the working pressure, the working temperature and the rate of flow in filling and in emptying.

c) In the case of a proposed change of the service conditions, a subsequent proof of conformity and possibly special measures, e.g. special cleaning and inside inspection, should be agreed.

d) When deciding maintenance procedures the operating practice should be considered, e.g. means of filling and emptying, varying working temperatures or changing fluid.

E.3 Cleaning and servicing

a) Tanks/vessels and safety devices should be kept clean and operational until decommissioning.

Cleaning and servicing should be performed by trained personnel only.

When cleaning and servicing, the appropriate accident prevention regulations should be considered, e.g. personal protective equipment and safety equipment.

b) Before cleaning, vessels should be emptied, degassed, piping isolated and electrically disconnected. Cleaning methods and cleaning compounds or liquids used should not generate harmful effects to the tanks/vessels, e.g. stress cracking.

c) All liquids and compounds used and all waste should be stored and cleared under control.

E.4 Repairing and replacing

a) Before inspection or repair, tanks/vessels should be taken out of service.

b) The decision on repair or replacement of damaged parts should take into account availability, safety and economy. Temporary repair is permitted but should be especially monitored.
