CSA/AM - ANSI NGV 3.1/CSA 12.3
Fuel System Components For Compressed Natural Gas Powered Vehicles
|Publication Date:||1 March 2012|
This standard establishes requirements for newly produced compressed natural gas fuel system components, intended for use on natural gas powered vehicles.
This standard applies to devices which have a service pressure of either 16 500 kPa (2400 psi), 20 700 kPa (3000 psi), or 24 800 kPa (3600 psi), hereinafter referred to in this standard as the following
"P24" - 16 500 kPa (2400 psi)
"P30" - 20 700 kPa (3000 psi)
"P36" - 24 800 kPa (3600 psi)
The construction of the noted components whether specifically covered by the various provisions of this standard or not, shall be in accordance with reasonable concepts of safety, substantiality and durability.
All specifications as to construction set forth herein shall be satisfied by the construction actually prescribed or such other construction as will provide at least equivalent performance.
This standard emphasizes the pressure containment, performance and safety characteristics of components listed in Table 1, Fuel System Components.
It is recognized that other components not specifically covered herein can be examined to meet the criteria of NGV 3.1 and tested according to the appropriate functional needs.
