Cryogenic vessels - Valves for cryogenic service

This European Standard specifies the requirements for the design, manufacture and testing of valves for cryogenic service, i.e. for operation with cryogenic fluids (as defined in EN 1251-1) below - 10 °C as well as at ambient conditions to allow for start-up and run-down. It specifies additional requirements for cryogenic service for the appropriate valve product standard.
NOTE   a cryogenic fluid (refrigerated liquefied gas) is a gas which is partially liquid because of its low temperature (including totally evaporated liquids and supercritical fluids).
It applies to sizes up to DN 150 including vacuum jacketed cryogenic valves.
This European Standard is not applicable to safety valves and valves for liquefied natural gas (LNG).
It is intended that the valve be designed and tested to satisfy a pressure rating (PN or Class). Valves may then be selected with a PN or Class equal to or greater than the maximum allowable pressure (PS) of the equipment with  which it is to be used.

Kryo-Behälter - Absperrarmaturen für tiefkalten Betrieb

Diese Europäische Norm legt die Anforderungen an die Konstruktion, Herstellung und Prüfung von Absperr-armaturen für den Kryo-Betrieb fest, d. h. für den Betrieb mit tiefkalten Fluiden unter –10 °C, wobei der Betrieb unter Umgebungsbedingungen einbezogen wird, um das Aktivieren und Deak¬tivieren (Hoch  und Hinunter¬fahren) zu berücksichtigen. Für die jeweiligen Armatur Produktnor¬men werden zusätzliche Anforderungen an den Kryo-Betrieb festgelegt.
ANMERKUNG   Ein tiefkaltes Fluid (tiefgekühltes verflüssigtes Gas) ist ein Gas, das wegen seiner niedrigen Temperatur teilweise flüssig ist (total verdampfte Flüssigkeiten und überkritische Fluide sind einbezogen).
Diese Europäische Norm gilt für Nennweiten bis DN 150 und auch für vakuum isolierte tiefkalte Absperr-armaturen.
Sie gilt nicht für Sicherheitsarmaturen und Absperrarmaturen für verflüssigtes Erdgas (LNG, en: liquified natural gas).
Es ist vorgesehen, die Armaturen so zu bemessen und zu prüfen, dass sie einer Druckstufe (PN oder Class) entsprechen. Die Armaturen dürfen dann nach einem Nenndruck PN oder einer Class ausgewählt werden, der/die gleich oder größer als der maximal zulässige Druck (PS) der Anlage ist, in der sie eingesetzt werden.

Récipients cryogéniques - Robinets pour usage cryogénique

La présente Norme européenne spécifie les prescriptions relatives à la conception, à la fabrication et aux
essais des robinets pour usage cryogénique c'est-à-dire destinés à fonctionner avec des fluides cryogéniques
(tels que définis dans l’EN 1251-1) à une température inférieure à -10 °C ainsi qu'à une température ambiante
pour permettre le démarrage et l'arrêt de l'installation qu'ils équipent. Elle spécifie les prescriptions
supplémentaires pour usage cryogénique par rapport aux normes appropriées de robinets.
NOTE Un fluide cryogénique (gaz liquéfié réfrigéré) est un gaz partiellement liquide en raison de sa basse
température (liquides totalement évaporés et fluides supercritiques inclus).
Elle s’applique aux robinets cryogéniques dont le diamètre nominal DN n’excède pas 150 et aux robinets
cryogéniques isolés sous vide.
La présente Norme européenne ne s’applique pas aux soupapes de sécurité ni aux robinets pour gaz naturel
liquéfié (GNL).
Il est prévu que le robinet soit conçu et soumis à l’essai pour satisfaire une pression nominale (PN ou classe).
Les robinets peuvent ensuite être choisis avec une pression nominale ou classe supérieure ou égale à la
pression maximale admissible (PS) de l’équipement avec lequel ils sont utilisés.
