Organization: BSI
Publication Date: 30 November 2006
Status: inactive
Page Count: 100
ICS Code (Measuring instruments): 17.040.30
scope:

This European Standard specifies the requirements for materials, design, manufacture, testing inspection, safety systems and documentation (including instructions for first operation), for commonly-used types of gas-loaded accumulators and gas bottles for fluid power applications.

This European Standard applies to the following types of components, defined as the pressurecontaining envelope of gas-loaded accumulators:

- bladder type;

- diaphragm type;

- piston type;

- transfer type;

- gas bottles used to provide additional gas capacity.

They consist of one or several parts joined together by a variety of mechanical means and by welding.

This European Standard applies to gas-loaded accumulators which operate with the following conditions:

- subject to an internal gauge pressure greater than 0,5 bar;

- working temperature of not lower than -50 °C and not higher than +200 °C;

- containing Group 2 liquids and gases as defined in the Pressure Equipment Directive 97/23/EC.

It does not apply to:

- accumulators for use with dangerous fluids (see NOTE 1).

NOTE 1 Fluid power applications utilize non-dangerous fluids as categorized in ISO 6743-4 in addition to an inert gas (e.g. nitrogen) which is used as the pre-charging medium.

NOTE 2 There are no design limits to the volume of the accumulator.
