Status: Withdrawn · Replaced by: SS-EN 14427:2014 Amended by: SS-EN 14427:2004/A1:2005

This European Standard specifies minimum requirements for materials, design, construction, prototype testing and routine manufacturing inspections of fully wrapped composite cylinders with a water capacity from 0,5 litre up to and including 150 litres for liquefied petroleum gases (LPG) exposed to ambient temperatures, with a test pressure of 30 bar. This standard is only applicable to cylinders which are fitted with a pressure relief valve (see 4.1.3). NOTE 1 Cylinders made to this standard are suitable for the temperature range of –40 °C to 50 °C. This standard is applicable to cylinders with a liner of metallic material (welded or seamless) or non-metallic material (or a mixture thereof), reinforced by fibres of glass, carbon or aramid (or a mixture thereof). This standard is also applicable to composite cylinders without liners. NOTE 2 This standard does not address the design, fitting and performance of removable protective sleeves. Where these are fitted, the choice of material and sleeve performance should be considered separately.
