Paragraph 3. Engineering certification of vessels

252. Vessels to which actions of these rules extend are exposed to engineering certification after installation before start-up in work and periodically in use.

253. The amount, methods and frequency of engineering certification of vessels (except for cylinders) is determined by the manufacturer.

254. Survey of cylinders is carried out by technique of developer of designs of cylinders in which frequency of survey and regulation of rejection are specified.

255. In case of lack of such instructions, engineering certification is made according to the requirements stated in Item 253 and 254 of these rules and in tables 1, of 2, of 3, of 4, of 5, of the 6th appendix 12 to these rules.

256. Vessels in which action of the circle causes deterioration in the chemical composition and mechanical properties of metal vessels at which wall temperature during the work exceeds 450 ° C shall be exposed to additional survey according to production schedules. Results of additional surveys are entered in the passport of vessel.

257. The vessels working under pressure of hazardous substances (liquid and gases) 1, 2, 3, 4 classes of danger in accordance with GOST 12.1. 007-76, "Occupational safety standards system. Hazardous substances. Classification and general requirements of safety", are exposed to engineering certification on hermeticity air or inert gas under pressure equal to working pressure.

Engineering certification is carried out according to production schedules to terms, established in tables 1, of 2, of 3, 4 appendices 12 to these rules.

258. Before internal survey and hydraulic testing the vessel stops, cooled (gets warm), exempted from the filling working environment, is disconnected by caps from all pipelines connecting vessel to source, pressure cleared to metal.

259. Lining, isolation and other types of protection against corrosion in parts or in full are removed if there are signs specifying possibility of defects of metal of vessels under protective coating (not the density of lining, traces of blotting of isolation and another). The electrical heating and the drive of vessel are disconnected.

260. The vessels having protective coating (enameled lining) or isolation, are subjected to hydraulic test before imposing of covering or isolation.

261. The vessels having outside casing are subjected to hydraulic test before installation of casing.

262. The vessels working with hazardous substances of 1 and 2 classes of danger in accordance with GOST 12.1.007-76 "Occupational safety standards system. Hazardous substances Classification and general requirements of safety", prior to internal survey and performance of works, are exposed to processing (to neutralization, decontamination) according to production schedules.

263. Extraordinary survey of the vessels which are in operation is carried out in the following cases:

after reconstruction, in case of repair of vessel using welding, in case of the soldering of the elements working under pressure (the feedwell, the bottom, cover, entrance and output collector);

after complete replacement and flaring of pipes of surface of heating (chilling) of vessel;

if the vessel was not operated more than 12 months;

if the vessel was dismantled and established on the new place;

before imposing on protective coating vessel walls;

if such survey is necessary at the discretion of person responsible for supervision of technical condition and operation of vessel.

264. Engineering certification of vessels, tanks, cylinders and barrels is made on special repair and test Items, in the companies of manufacturers, the filling stations and at the companies owners of vessels, tanks, cylinders and barrels.

265. Engineering certification of the vessels, tanks, barrels and cylinders which are not subject to registration in territorial subdivision of authorized body in the field of industrial safety and in local executive body is carried out by person responsible for supervision of technical condition and operation of vessels, and the engineering employee at filling stations, repair and test Items appointed for these purposes.

266. Engineering certification of the vessels, tanks and cylinders which are subject to registration in territorial subdivision of authorized body in the field of industrial safety organizes responsible for supervision of technical condition and operation of vessels and is carried out by the certified organization with the assistance of the state state supervision inspector in the field of industrial safety of authorized body in the field of industrial safety, and subjects to registration in local executive body with participation of the state inspector of the cities of republican value, the capital, areas (cities of regional value) on the state supervision of safe operation of dangerous technical devices on objects of social infrastructure (further - the state state supervision inspector in the field of industrial safety of local executive body).

When carrying out engineering certification correctness and reliability of the data specified in the following documentation is studied:

1) the passport of vessel according to appendix 23 to these rules;

2) conclusion about quality of installation;

3) the scheme of inclusion of vessel, with indication of source of pressure, parameters, its working environment, armature, instrumentations, means of automatic control, safety and blocking devices;

4) the passport of the safety valve with calculation of its handling capacity;

5) regulations on production supervision in the organization;
