Gas cylinders - Refillable composite gas cylinders and tubes - Design, construction and testing - Part 3: Fully wrapped fibre reinforced composite gas cylindersand tubes up to 450L with non-load-sharing metallic or non-metallic liners (ISO 11119-3:2013, IDT)
This part of ISO 11119 specifies requirements for composite gas cylinders up to 150 l water capacity and composite tubes above 150 l water capacity and up to 450 l water capacity, for the storage and conveyance of compressed or liquefied gases.
The cylinders and tubes in this part of ISO 11119 are
a) Type 4 Fully Wrapped Cylinders or Tubes with a non-load sharing liner and composite reinforcement on both the cylindrical portion and the dome ends, and
b) Type 5 Fully Wrapped Cylinders or Tubes without liners (including cylinders without liners manufactured from two parts joined together) and with a test pressure of less than 60 bar.
The cylinders are constructed:
1) in the form of a disposable mandrel overwrapped with carbon fibre or aramid fibre or glass fibre (or a mixture thereof) in a resin matrix to provide longitudinal and circumferential reinforcement;
2) in the form of two filament wound shells joined together.
Cylinders and tubes manufactured and tested to this part of ISO 11119 are not intended to contain toxic, oxidizing or corrosive gases.
This part of ISO 11119 is limited to cylinders and tubes with composite reinforcement of carbon fibre or aramid fibre or glass fibre (or a mixture thereof) in a matrix.
Cylinders and tubes manufactured and tested to this part of ISO 11119 have a minimum design life of 15 years.
This part of ISO 11119 does not address the design, fitting and performance of removable protective sleeves.
NOTE 1 References to cylinders in this International Standard include composite tubes if appropriate.
NOTE 2 ISO 11439 applies to cylinders intended for use as fuel containers on natural gas vehicles and ISO 11623 covers periodic inspection and re-testing of composite cylinders.
