In addition to the NFPA 30 for tank spacing there is a PIP publication from API which addresses this issue. 2 members like this post! The spacings may be hard to read, but the reference from ccps is given and is legible.

I think I have that book at the office and I will check and post. Sorry I don’t have that book. I think GE bought IRI and most of the data is on a charge basis now. IRI was formed to compete with Factory Mutual, so you could try a search for Factory Mutual. I poked around there a bit but didn’t see any practices related to equipment spacing.

We have our own internal guidelines which we use at my work, but I don’t know if it’s based on some national standard. Also have to purchase this publication. For flares you might want to look at the API recomended practice for the heat affected zone. Cannot remember the number as I am not in the office as I write this post. There is also a 3 volume book by Lee and others which seems to be more European code orientated. I borrowed the book from a university library and was not really impressed with it as a working document for engineers.

Lees “Loss Prevention in the Process Industries”. Guidoo:  Yes that is the book. I did not find any information about equipment spacing. I found the brief about “Guidelines for Engineering Design for Process Safety”. I found the abstract for PNC00003. Lots of other useful documents for piping design can be found here.

I found this document which maybe repalced IRI IM. Now I am studing the layout for a propylene plant which include feedstock pretreatment unit, selective hydrogenation unit, olefins conversion unit. The final product is polymer grade propylene. The plant inculdes most common equipment for petrochemical plant such as furnaces, exchangers, fanned air coolers, reactors, distillation towers, pumps, etc.

Client already issued preliminary equipment layout in Basic Engineering Package. It is reauired that we must study and revise the plan again but the client did not indicate which codes shall be applied for the layout design. I am not very sure what’s the common way to rise up this issue to the client. I found normally clients would like to say “What’s your recommendations?

I need to know which codes we normally used for layout design. But it looks there are lots of references from different organizations. By the way, I knew different country maybe has their own codes and practice respectively. I would like to go deep further and am all ears if anyone from different countries can tell me more about yours. In the end, equipment spacing is based on experience in designing plants and other facilities. There are lots of guidelines as noted previously but other than NFPA 30 I do not know of any codes in the US.

A hazop study should be performed on the preliminary layout and P and ID in the Basic Engineering package. Most companies outside of the US do one and in the US I believe that a hazop study is required by OSHA. A hazop study is nothing more than a methodogy to consider what events outside of normal operations could transpire and what the corrective action would be. I would suggest that the hazop study be done jointly with the client’s engineering and operations staff.

As an alternative, there are a number of companies who specialize in doing risk analysis of all types. If your company does not have the expertise then perhaps you should contract with one of these speciality companies. You should also realize that most companies are self insured which is a factor. No company will admit it in public but there is a cost for any property loss and safety, including loss of life, which is taken into account in any risk analysis. Given that your initial post was March 4 and on March 8 you are moving on to another project, EXACTLY what is your level of involvement and responsibility in the project? I knew the spacing is a part of consideration for insurance and some countries also have the special codes for the requirements for spacing regarding the fire protection.

Spacing is also under the fire authority in some countries. The problem for me is the plant mentioned hereinabove shall follow Shell specs and maybe some Japanese codes. I do know know how they want to combine them. I can not find any clues about spacing requirements from Basic Engineering Package. I need to consider all but not so detailed as our designers do. I need to lead them to finish work.
