Machines and plants for the manufacture, treatment and processing of flat glass - Safety requirements - Part 9: Washing installations
|Publication Date:||1 July 2006|
|ICS Code (Equipment for the glass and ceramics industries):||81.100|
This European Standard contains the safety requirements for the design and installation of stationary glass washing installations as shown as typical in Annex A.
Glass washing installations are designed to perform the following functions: feeding of flat glass to the cleaning and drying unit and transport (delivery) to the estimation equipment and to the take-off position of the flat glass sheet. None of the processing phases requires direct manual intervention.
This European Standard deals with the significant hazards, hazardous situations and events with the exception of those by interfaces with other machines used in a process line relevant to glass washing installations, when they are used as intended and under the conditions of misuse which are reasonably foreseeable by the manufacturer (see Clause 4). This European Standard specifies the appropriate technical measures to eliminate or reduce risks which can arise from these significant hazards during commissioning, the operation and maintenance. Safety requirements and/or protective measures are given in Clause 5. When references are made to B level standards such as EN 953, EN 1037, EN 1088, EN 60204-1, EN ISO 13850 and EN ISO 13857, the manufacturer should carry out an adequate risk assessment for the requirements thereof where choice is necessary.
This European Standard is not applicable to machines for loading and unloading of glass (see EN 13035-5) and to conveyors (see EN 619) and fans. If there are specific risks that arise by their use as an integral part of flat glass washing installations, appropriate measures are specified.
This European Standard is not applicable to glass washing installations for automotive and bent glass.
This European Standard is not applicable to water preparation and disposal of waste washing liquid.
This European Standard is not applicable to machinery manufactured before the date of publication of this European Standard by CEN.
