Petrol equipment standardization on international level
In the 21st century, the sphere of production and sale of fuel is being significantly transformed. Nevertheless, one should not forget that the development of technology continues, but at the same time the existing electrical and mechanical processes are mainly supported by the supply of fuel cells familiar to the 20th and 21st centuries. That is why the issue of excessive substitution of this element is currently irrelevant. As a result, the issues of standardization and normalization of the processes associated with the aforementioned resources are being actualized. If your organization operates in a market where fuel is actively used, or you operate and sell it, then the list of the standards mentioned below will be a significant help on the path of development of your enterprise, and will also make it possible to scale to more global levels in a much shorter time.
Petrol filling stations - Construction and performance of automatic nozzles for use on fuel dispensers
EN 13012: 2021
The design of electrical equipment is a complex concept and includes a large number of subcategories, technological aspects, and as a result, it becomes necessary to create regulation standards for each stage. This is why international standards are being created that allow you to automate processes and create production structures in accordance with international norms and requirements to simplify economic interaction. When it comes to fuel equipment, an international standard like EN 13012: 2021 comes to the rescue.
This document specifies safety and environmental requirements for the construction and performance of nozzles to be fitted to metering pumps and dispensers installed at filling stations and which are used to dispense liquid fuels and aqueous urea solution into the tanks of motor vehicles, boats and light aircraft and into portable containers, at flow rates up to 200 l min − 1. This document applies to fuels of subdivision Group IIA according to EN ISO / IEC 80079-20-1 and also aqueous urea solution according to ISO 22241-1. The requirements apply to automatic nozzles dispensing liquid at ambient temperatures from -20 ° C to +40 ° C with the possibility for an extended temperature range. This document does not apply to equipment dispensing compressed or liquefied gases.
This document does not include any requirements for metering performance. Vapor recovery efficiency rates are not covered in this document.
Working with fuel is a high-risk category of human activity, which is why it should be understood that the selection of an international standard should be carried out strictly in accordance with the technical norms and requirements of your organization. Moreover, today the topic of ecology is developing very actively, which at times contradicts the development of the fuel sector. That is why the availability of international standards will protect you from violating the rules of the modern market.
GRP tanks and vessels for use above ground - Part 1: Raw materials - Specification conditions and acceptance criteria
EN 13121-1: 2021
Transportation of products has always been a laborious process and had many stages, from loading processes to processes requiring clear rationing in the direct implementation of dispatch. When it comes to the transportation of fuel products, it is necessary to understand that in this category of human activity the number of risks increases significantly, and therefore there is a need for some international documents like EN 13121-1: 2021.
This document gives requirements for specification and acceptance conditions of raw materials for GRP tanks and vessels with or without lining for storage or processing of fluids, factory made or site built, non-pressurized or pressurized, for use above ground. Tanks and vessels for storage or processing of food, raw materials for food and potable water additionally have to be in compliance with relevant EU directives and applicable national standards and regulations.
International standardization of the fuel market is more and more relevant today, despite the relative vulnerability in this category of human activity. Despite the active development of technologies, it is still impossible to fully automate processes without using fuel resources, and as a result, the need for the implementation of international standards is increasing every day.
Petrol filling stations - Part 4: Safety requirements for construction and performance of swivels for use on metering pumps and dispensers
EN 13617-4: 2021
Since each equipment in each category of human activity, including those related to fuel, has a large number of electronic and mechanical equipment, a corresponding number of international standards are created not only for each type of equipment, but also for each element and method of application. Mentioning such a category of system creation topics such as safety standards and requirements for the installation of fuel distribution equipment, the international standard EN 13617-4: 2021 should be noted.
This document specifies safety requirements for the construction and performance of swivels to be fitted to delivery hose assemblies on metering pumps and dispensers installed at filling stations and used to dispense liquid fuels and aqueous urea solution into the tanks of motor vehicles, boats and light aircraft and into portable containers at flow rates up to 200 l min − 1. It pays particular attention to electrical, mechanical and hydraulic characteristics of swivels. This document applies to fuels of subdivision Group IIA according to EN ISO / IEC 80079-20-1 and also aqueous urea solution in accordance with ISO 22241-1.
The requirements apply to swivels at ambient temperatures from -20 ° C to +40 ° C with the possibility for an extended temperature range.
This document applies mainly to hazards related to the ignition of liquid fuels being dispensed or their vapor. This document also addresses electrical and mechanical hazards of swivels. This document does not apply to equipment dispensing compressed or liquefied gases.
The specificity of this document is that it is quite diverse and can go under several categories of equipment. However, in order not to make the mistake of acquiring the wrong international standard, we recommend that you consult with professionals in the field of selection of international standards.
EN 13480-2: 2018 / A8: 2021
In the 21st century, there is a huge amount of materials from which equipment can be manufactured. Basically, the emphasis is on those materials that combine high safety qualities and low depreciation costs, durability and environmental friendliness. Nevertheless, when it comes to large industrial structures, it should be noted that the prevailing use is metal. For each of the types of equipment and materials, a corresponding international standard is created, for example, for metal pipes, such a document as EN 13480-2: 2018 / A8: 2021.
This document specifies the requirements for steel products used for industrial piping and supports.
For some metallic materials other than steel, such as spheroidal graphite cast iron, aluminum, nickel, copper, titanium, requirements are or will be formulated in separate parts of this document. For metallic materials which are not covered by a harmonized material standard and are not likely to be in near future, specific rules are given in this part or the above cited parts of this document.
If you operate in a large industrial structure, it should be understood that absolutely for each stage of production activity and methods of using equipment as well as installation processes, you must have relevant international documents if you are interested in the permanent development of your organization, as well as scaling to more global levels. ...
International standardization of industrial processes
To date, full automation is possible only in those industries in which the operation of the most innovative equipment is carried out, and the final product is not a large-sized element. Nevertheless, it should be understood that despite the accelerated rate of innovative development, complete replacement of human labor is impossible. Due to constant interaction with large-sized equipment as well as with chemical elements, one way or another, there is an impact on the health and condition of employees. Today, world organizations are focusing on safety issues, as well as preserving human life and health, especially in the light of recent events, international standards are increasingly focusing on creating norms that clearly regulate the gradual formation of a structure with the greatest risk minimization. That is why if your organization has ambitious plans for development and scaling, and you want to always maintain a leading position in the market where your organization operates, we recommend that you always have the latest international standards for each type of equipment and security methods associated with them.
