BS EN 1442 calls for the use of substances and procedures that may be injurious to health if adequate precautions are not taken. It refers only to technical suitability and does not absolve the user from legal obligations relating to health and safety at any stage.
It has been assumed in the drafting of BS EN 1442 that the execution of its provisions is entrusted to appropriately qualified and experienced people.
All pressures are gauge pressures unless otherwise stated.
NOTE BS EN 1442 requires measurement of material properties, dimensions and pressures. All such measurements are subject to a degree of uncertainty due to tolerances in measuring equipment, etc. It may be beneficial to refer to the leaflet “measurement uncertainty leaflet (SP INFO 2000 27 uncertainty pdf)” .
BS EN 1442 specifies the minimum requirements for the design, construction and testing during manufacture of transportable refillable welded steel Liquefied Petroleum Gas (LPG) cylinders, of water capacity from 0,5 1 up to and including 150 1.
BS EN 1442 applies only to cylinders having a circular cross-section.
Cylinders designed and constructed to the requirements of BS EN 1442 may be overmoulded; additional requirements for these cylinders are set out in Annex B.
