Il documento contiene relazioni che analizzano i vari aspetti della vita delle attrezzature a pressione, dalla progettazione alla fabbricazione, dall’ispezione alla manutenzione.
Fornisce una panoramica delle soluzioni innovative, sviluppate dall’Istituto e da altri stakeholders nazionali ed internazionali, mirate al miglioramento dell’efficienza e delle condizioni di sicurezza degli impianti.
These are the Proceedings of the first edition EPERC Conference 2019 on the theme of "Safety and innovation in the pressure equipment sector". EPERC is an organization active to support Innovation and Competitiveness of the European Pressure Equipment Industry. The objectives are: to identify the needs for research and innovation and to make pressure vessel industry safer, innovative and competitive through the exchange of industry experience and dedicated Technical Task Groups.
The major orientation is to work with the key Industry actors that used Pressure Equipment at the European level in one hand, and with International Cooperation (USA, Russia, Japan, Korea, China, India, and Middle East countries…) in the other hand.
EPERC has to be in touch with similar organization in the world (China, Japan, Korea, Indonesia, USA, Canada, South America, Middle East, Africa…), and in particular with ASME ST-LLC, Japanese PVRC, China...
All the Research and Development programs will be developed in close relation with European Standard Pressure Equipment Technical Committees and all the support of the European Community (EIT, JRC, DGs…).
The EU key actors in this domain include JRC "Joint Research Centre", EIT "European Institute of Innovation & Technology", CEN "European Committee for Standardisation", including all the Pressure Equipment Technical Committees.
Improvements of European Codes & Standards will be considered with European Pressure Equipment Standards Technical Committees, to develop R&D for the different standards and to guarantee knowledge transfer, to develop set of examples and training of users, on different innovations.
The EPERC mission is to coordinate, develop and promote the common technical interests and strategies of European industry with regard to pressure equipment industry innovation and competitiveness through:
The EPERC mission is also to safeguard and represent the technical and economic interests of industries in Europe that rely on pressure equipment; to facilitate the free trade of pressure equipment and common in-service requirements across borders at international and European level to assure safety and competitiveness through recognition of standards and recommended practices with associated background; to promote and encourage cooperation through research and exchange of industry experience among the EPERC Stakeholders (Members).
The EPERC strategy is:
The participants, representing Industries, Utilities, Universities and Research Centres presented in this 1st EPERC Conference the last developments about:
The organisers of the EPERC Conference and the editors of the Proceedings were paid rich tributes for bringing together, from so many countries, so many papers, data and findings in the field of Safety and Innovation in the pressure equipment sector.
