PURPOSE of Manufacturing Vessel Standard Maintenance Procedure
Manufacturing Vessel – The objective of this Standard Maintenance Procedure is to describe the procedure for maintenance of mfg. vessel under Production department. Provides for use Safety Valves set at lower than maximum working pressure of the vessel. Pressure Gauges with maximum operating pressure marked by Red. Drain valve for each pressure vessel isolation valves for each pressure vessels…
Frequency of tests of pressure vessels-external every six months, internal (where possible to see) once every year. ( Where not possible to see inside ) not fitted with continuous plant-hydraulic test every to years, pressure vessel fitted with continuous process plant to be hydraulic tested every 4 years. This procedure is applicable for maintenance of mfg. vessel under Production department of Limited
AREA OF OPERATION
Production floor of General Production building.
Operators under engineering department are responsible for following this SOP.Routine responsibility for ensuring that this procedure is implemented as and where necessary rests with the Head of Engineering department.Quality Assurance Department is responsible for SOP compliance.
All concern Operators, Executives / Officers and Head of Engineering Department.

- Greased all greasing point (By grease)
- Stop valve to isolate, operating
- No external visible leaks
- No visible defects
- Lubricated all lubricating point (By oil)
- After completion of maintenance record as per SOP EN/002
REVIEW / CHANGE HISTORY
- The procedure must be re-prepared, checked and duly approved whenever any change in the system/ method/ process, or in any circumstance, indicates the need for the same.
- The SOP must be reviewed every 3 (three) years from the date of issue, in the light of current practice, to determine whether any change or revision is necessary.
- All copies of the SOP which will be superseded by any revision must be withdrawn from active use.
- After recalling all the copies of the superseded SOPs, redistribute the reviewed one by keeping records in Log books.
- Preserve a copy of the superseded SOP in document archive and destroy rest of the copies keeping records. The SOP is to be archived for 2 years from the date of expiry.
