Cryogenic vessels — Pressure-relief accessories for cryogenic service — Part 1: Reclosable pressure-relief valves
|Publication Date:||15 June 2008|
|ICS Code (Cryogenic vessels):||23.020.40|
This International Standard specifies the requirements for the design, manufacture and testing of pressure relief valves for cryogenic service, i.e. for operation with cryogenic fluids in addition to operation at temperatures from ambient to cryogenic. It is a requirement of this International Standard that the valves comply with ISO 4126-1; in the event of different requirements, this International Standard takes precedence.
This International Standard is restricted to valves not exceeding a size of DN 150 designed to relieve single-phase vapours or gases. A valve may be specified, constructed and tested such that it is suitable for use with more than one gas or with mixtures of gases.
NOTE This part of ISO 21013 does not provide methods for determining the capacity of relief valve(s) for a particular cryogenic vessel. Such methods are provided in ISO 21013-3.
