Gas cylinders - Acetylene cylinders - Basic requirements and type testing
|Publication Date:||1 September 2013|
|ICS Code (Pressure vessels):||23.020.30|
This International Standard specifies the basic and type testing requirements for acetylene cylinders with and without fusible plugs with a maximum nominal water capacity of 150 l and requirements regarding production/batch test procedures for manufacturing of acetylene cylinders with porous material.
It does not include details of the design of the cylinder shell; these are specified, for example, in ISO 9809-1, ISO 9809-3, ISO 4706 and ISO 7866.
NOTE The limitation to 150 l is derived from the definition for cylinder in the UN Model Regulations. However, in practice acetylene cylinders in general have lower water capacities than 150 l.
