Cryogenic vessels - Gas/materials compatibility
|Publication Date:||1 December 2017|
|ICS Code (Cryogenic vessels):||23.020.40|
This document specifies gas/material compatibility requirements (such as chemical resistance) for cryogenic vessels, but it does not cover mechanical properties (e.g. for low-temperature applications).
This document provides general guidance for compatibility with gases and detailed compatibility requirements for oxygen and oxygen-enriched atmospheres. This document also defines the testing methods for establishing oxygen compatibility of materials (metallic and non-metallic) to be used for cryogenic vessels and associated equipment.
This document focuses on materials that are normally with or could be in contact with cryogenic fluids.
