International standard for petroleum products and natural gas processing equipment

Heavy industry equipment has a number of technical regulations. However, concepts such as licensing and standardization come into play when it comes to production, operation and distribution at the international level. In order to simplify the process of globalization of the economy and thereby facilitate the entry of SMEs into international markets, standardization bodies develop legal instruments that enable the harmonization of requirements within a particular geographical location, It simplifies the process of introducing new markets. for businesses. Today we will introduce the international standards that are most relevant to today's fuel systems.

Rubber and plastic hoses and hose assemblies with internal vapor recovery for fuel metering systems - specifications

SIST EN 13483:2022

Since the whole system always consists of several elements, details, attention should be paid to the quality of the individual stages of process construction. When it comes to fuel systems, most small and large parts are subject to international standards such as SIST EN 13483:2022.

This document specifies requirements and test methods for the validation of hose assemblies with vapor recovery for distribution systems at gas stations. Hose lines with vapor recovery for gas station distribution systems withstand the expected mechanical, thermal and chemical loads and are resistant to the flammable liquids used and their vapor-air mixtures. I have to. Assemblies must be constructed so that during normal operation no dangerous electrical build-up occurs and vapor recovery performance is not compromised. The assemblies are intended for operating pressures ≤ 16 bar and ambient temperatures of –30 °C to +55 °C for the normal class and –40 °C to +55 °C for the low temperature class. Hoses can be made of rubber or thermoplastic elastomer (TPE). This document describes his three types of hoses in two grades and a vapor recovery tube or hose inside. NOTE This document does not apply to fuel dispenser hoses with multiple chambers. As part of the certification of new fuel pumps, fuel samples are tested according to EN 228 at least 8 weeks after the unit is first used to avoid unrepresentative sulfur content results.

A feature of this international document is that it describes updated regulations and market requirements, which can significantly increase the competitiveness of companies that are beginning to adapt to these standards.

Plastic piping systems for gas fuel supply - Polyethylene (PE) - Part 4: Valves

ISO 4437-4:2022

A characteristic feature of the fuel industry is the use of a large number of chemical elements. When chemical elements interact with each other, they can cause certain reactions that are not always safe. One of the international standards to prevent possible adverse effects is ISO 4437-4:2022.

This document specifies the properties of polyethylene (PE) fittings for piping systems in the field of gaseous fuel supply. This is applicable to unidirectional and bidirectional globe valves with spigot ends or electrofusion sockets intended to be welded to PE pipes or fittings according to ISO 4437-2 and ISO 4437-3 respectively.

Valves designed for the delivery of gaseous fuels and made of non-PE materials that comply with relevant standards can be used in PE piping systems that comply with the ISO 4437 series. to ISO 4437-3. Also specify test parameters for the test methodology referenced in this document. With reference to parts 1, 2, 3 and 5 of the ISO 4437 series, this document applies to PE fittings, their joints and joints with components made of PE and other materials, subject to the following conditions: intended to be used with

a) Maximum Operating Pressure (MOP) including up to 10 bar [1] at design reference temperature 20 °C; Note 1 For the purposes of this document and reference to ISO 8233, MOP is considered a pressure rating .

b) Operating temperature from -20 °C to 40 °C. NOTE 2 Derating factors are defined in ISO 4437-5 for operating temperatures between 20 °C and 40 °C.

This document applies to valve bodies designed for connection to pipes with a nominal outside diameter dn ≤ 400 mm. [1] 1bar = 0.1MPa = 105Pa; 1MPa = 1N/mm2.

This international standard contains a large number of terms and technical parameters. We encourage you to seek advice from our experts on suitability for your field of activity.

Oil and gas industry - Corrosion resistant alloy clad elbows and fittings for pipeline transportation systems - Part 1: Clad elbows

ISO 24139-1:2022

Despite the durability of many materials, the destruction of one or another piece of equipment due to interaction with various elements can significantly increase depreciation costs. Standards like ISO 24139-1:2022 have been created to prevent this situation in fuel delivery lines. This document provides technical information on the design, geometric dimensions, materials, manufacturing processes, inspection procedures, non-destructive testing (NDT), marking, packaging and storage of clad corrosion resistant alloy (CRA) sheets for use in pipelines. specify the terms of delivery. The transportation system of the oil and gas industry.

This document applies to CRA clad elbows for use in transportation or process pipelines carrying single or multiphase liquids containing corrosive substances such as oil, gas and water in the oil and gas industry. It will be helpful in other fields as well.

There are two technical delivery condition classes for clad sheets. Class B provides standard quality levels for clad sheets and Class S provides technical requirements for sour service conditions. It is the purchaser's responsibility to specify the appropriate grade based on intended use and design requirements.

Because the fuel extraction industry is multi-vector The fuel extraction industry is multi-vector, with many opportunities and risks, so to stay competitive you need to constantly learn about the latest updates to international standards and adapt your business processes accordingly.

Gas infrastructure - compressor stations - functional requirements

SIST EN 12583:2022

Forgetting that despite the numerous international standards focused on the technical aspects of business processes, the presence of adequate regulations on the functioning of any activity can significantly increase the level of security and reduce possible risks. not. One such fuel standard is SIST EN 12583:2022.

This European standard describes specific functional requirements for the design, construction, operation, maintenance and disposal of safe gas compression stations. This European standard applies to new gas compression stations with a maximum operating pressure (MOP) above 16 bar and a gross shaft power above 1 MW. For existing compressor stations, this document applies to new compressor units. If changes/modifications are made to existing installations or gas compositions, the requirements of this European standard can be fully taken into account.

This European Standard does not apply to gas compression stations in operation prior to the publication of this European Standard.

The purpose of this European standard is to:

— Ensuring the health and safety of the public and all field personnel;

— Addressing environmental issues,

— to prevent accidental damage to nearby property

— Opening gas infrastructure to renewable gas.

This European standard does not apply to:

— offshore gas compressor station;

— Gas Compressor Station for Compressed Natural Gas Filling Station;

— Customer systems behind storage locations.

— Design and build driver packages (see Appendix C).

— Mobile compressor unit. For the supply of utilities such as small central heating boilers, EN 1775 should be consulted.

If this International Standard lacks some aspect specific to your activity, adding another standard may give you exactly the results you are looking for.Contact our specialists to discuss your business We recommend that you get proper support in your development.

The need to adhere to standardized standards for development and scaling

Today, with the availability of Internet advertising and the expansion of companies in the vastness of networks, the most important issue is the adaptation and adaptation of products to the local market. One way or another, all companies in the development process start thinking about scaling up and entering the market. Therefore, we need international standards first. This helps the product or service meet the norms and regulations of the location where the launch takes place. If your company is constantly working to expand and expand its production capacity for further expansion, international standards are an important aid towards this goal.
