Cryogenic vessels - Gas/material compatibility
|Publication Date:||1 January 2018|
|ICS Code (Cryogenic vessels):||23.020.40|
NEN-ISO 21010 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.
