Foreword

ISO (the International Organization for Standardization) is a worldwide federation of national standards bodies

(ISO member bodies). The work of preparing International Standards is normally carried out through ISO

technical committees. Each member body interested in a subject for which a technical committee has been

established has the right to be represented on that committee. International organizations, governmental and

non-governmental, in liaison with ISO, also take part in the work. ISO collaborates closely with the

International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) on all matters of electrotechnical standardization.

International Standards are drafted in accordance with the rules given in the ISO/IEC Directives, Part 2.

The main task of technical committees is to prepare International Standards. Draft International Standards

adopted by the technical committees are circulated to the member bodies for voting. Publication as an

International Standard requires approval by at least 75 % of the member bodies casting a vote.

Attention is drawn to the possibility that some of the elements of this document may be the subject of patent

rights. ISO shall not be held responsible for identifying any or all such patent rights.

ISO 9809-3 was prepared by Technical Committee ISO/TC 58, Gas cylinders, Subcommittee SC 3, Cylinder

design.

This second edition cancels and replaces the first edition (ISO 9809-3:2000), which has been technically

revised by the following:

a) the reduction of maximum sulfur content in 6.2.3 from 0,020 % to 0,015 %, which is now applicable to all

strength levels;

b) the note in 7.3 regarding limitation of the F factor was deleted (as required by the United Nations

Recommandations on the Transport of Dangerous Goods: Model Regulations);

c) the modification of provisions for ultrasonic examination in 8.4 to include ultrasonic examination on the

cylindrical area to be closed, prior to the forming process;

d) the addition of the requirement of a base check according to 9.2.4 for all cylinder types during prototype

testing;

e) the addition of the requirement of a base check according to 9.2.4 for cylinders made from continuously

cast billet material during batch testing.

ISO 9809 consists of the following parts, under the general title Gas cylinders — Refillable seamless steel gas

cylinders — Design, construction and testing:

⎯ Part 1: Quenched and tempered steel cylinders with tensile strength less than 1 100 MPa

⎯ Part 2: Quenched and tempered steel cylinders with tensile strength greater than or equal to 1 100 MPa

⎯ Part 3: Normalized steel cylinders

Stainless steel cylinders with tensile strength of less than 1 100 MPa will form the subject of a part 4.

Introduction

This part of ISO 9809 provides a specification for the design, manufacture, inspection and testing of a

seamless steel cylinder for worldwide usage. The objective is to balance design and economic efficiency

against international acceptance and universal utility.

ISO 9809 (all parts) aims to eliminate existing concerns about climate, duplicate inspections and restrictions

because of a lack of definitive International Standards. This part of ISO 9809 should not be construed as

reflecting on the suitability of the practice of any nation or region.

This part of ISO 9809 addresses the general requirements on design, construction and initial inspection and

testing of pressure receptacles of the United Nations Recommendations on the Transport of Dangerous

Goods: Model Regulations.

It is intended to be used under a variety of regulatory regimes, but is suitable for use with the conformity

assessment system in 6.2.2.5 of the above-mentioned Model Regulations.

5 Inspection and testing

NOTE Evaluation of conformity can be carried out according to the regulations recognized by the country(ies) in

which the cylinders are intended to be used.

To ensure that the cylinders conform to this part of ISO 9809, they shall be subject to inspection and testing in

accordance with Clauses 9, 10 and 11 by an inspection body (hereinafter referred to as “the inspector”) authorized

to do so.

Equipment used for measurement, testing and examination during production shall be maintained and

calibrated within a documented quality management system.
6 Materials
6.1 General requirements

6.1.1 Materials for the manufacture of normalized or normalized and tempered gas cylinders shall be those

generically classified as carbon-steels or carbon-manganese steels. The maximum actual tensile strength,

R , for cylinders made from those steels shall not exceed 800 MPa.

Other steels specified in ISO 9809-1 or ISO 9809-2 for quenched and tempered cylinders may be used and

subjected to normalizing and tempering as specified in 6.3 provided that they additionally pass the impact test

requirements given in ISO 9809-1, and the maximum actual tensile strength, R , does not exceed 950 MPa.

The steel used shall fall within one of the following categories:
a) internationally recognized cylinder steels;
b) nationally recognized cylinder steels;
c) new cylinder steels resulting from technical progress.

6.1.2 The material used for the manufacture of gas cylinders shall be steel, other than rimming quality, with

non-ageing properties, and shall be fully killed with aluminium and/or silicon. If only aluminium is used for

killing, the metallic aluminium content shall be at least 0,015 %.

Where examination of this non-ageing property is required by the customer, the criteria by which it is to be

specified should be agreed with the customer and inserted in the order.

6.1.3 The cylinder manufacturer shall establish means to identify the cylinders with the cast of steel from

which they are made.

6.1.4 Grades of steel used for cylinder manufacture shall be compatible with the intended gas service,

e.g. corrosive gases, embrittling gases (see ISO 11114-1 and ISO 11114-4).

6.1.5 Wherever continuously cast billet material is used, the manufacturer shall ensure that there are no

deleterious imperfections (porosity) in the material to be used for making cylinders (see 9.2.6).

6.2 Controls on chemical composition
6.2.1 The chemical composition of all steels shall be defined at least by:
⎯ the carbon, manganese and silicon contents in all cases;

⎯ the chromium, nickel and molybdenum contents or other alloying elements intentionally added to the

steel;
⎯ the maximum sulfur and phosphorus contents in all cases.

representative of good steel making practice.

6.2.2 Except for steels conforming to ISO 9809-1 or ISO 9809-2, the limits on carbon, manganese and

other alloying elements, given in Table 2, shall not be exceeded in the cast analysis of material used.

6.2.4 The cylinder manufacturer shall obtain and make available certificates of cast (heat) analyses of the

steels supplied for the construction of gas cylinders.

Should check analyses be required, they shall be carried out either on specimens taken during manufacture

from the material in the form as supplied by the steel maker to the cylinder manufacturer, or from finished

cylinders. In any check analysis, the maximum permissible deviation from the limits specified for the cast

analyses shall conform to the values specified in ISO 9329-1.

6.3 Heat treatment

The heat treatment process applied to the finished cylinder shall be either normalizing or normalizing and

tempering. The cylinder manufacturer shall certify the heat treatment process applied.

The heat treatment process shall achieve the required mechanical properties.

The actual temperature to which a type of steel is subjected for a given tensile strength shall not deviate by
