Guidelines for Assessing Age and Damage Severity on all Types of PFP Systems

PFPNet has been working towards developing guidelines for assessing the severity of age and damage on the effectiveness of all types of PFP systems.  Following two phases of scoping work, this project is to lead the development of qualitative guidance that allows a suitably qualified person to make a judgment on the severity of damage

PFPNet Invites bids to Write a Cryogenic Spill Protection Design Guidance Document

This document will improve the specification of cryogenic spill protection (CSP) by providing generic guidance on the hazards and risks associated with the storage and processing of LNG and other cryogenic fluids. It aims to promote use of the correct systems in the correct locations, by ensuring CSP is not overlooked at the early design

Fundamentals of Cryogenic Spill Protection 

PFPNet has developed a short "fundamentals" guidance document that describes the minimum information required to be provided to a CSP system manufacturer that will allow them to specify the correct type and thickness of CSP required, based on the ISO 20088 test data.  Even slight changes in any of the fundamental variables that affect CSP

Qualification and Training Programmes

PFPNet is considering two “schemes” that are aimed at demonstrating competency: The qualification and training of individuals (Qualified Applicator).  Here, the qualification is based on an assessment of competency obtained by both classroom and practical training, and through experience. The qualification and registration of companies (Qualified Application Contractor).  A successful registration is by an audit

Cryogenic Spill Protection Guidance Document

Our CSP workshop at the November ‘22 conference proposed two levels of guidance for Cryogenic Spill Protection:  A short “Fundamentals of CSP” document outlining the essential information needed to ensure that a CSP system is correctly supplied and fit-for-purpose, and an “advanced” guidance document, containing more technical details on scenarios, consequence modelling, response of structures

PFPNet Design Guidance Book No 1: PFP for Critical Process Control Equipment

One of the 2023 project commitments from PFPNet is to start the development of the Guidance Books that will define the procedures for the testing, assessment, classification, specification and end use of passive fire protection (PFP) systems used in the hydrocarbon sector.  They will be applicable for all the types of PFP systems that are

Authors Needed to Develop PFPNet Guidance

PFPNet is developing a series of Industry Guidance Books that will provide a go-to-market roadmap and guidance to aid in the testing, assessment, certification, specification and in-service use of PFP systems for different end applications. The first of these Industry Guidance Books will cover the different types of PFP systems that can be used to
