Natural gas vehicles - Vehicle fuelling appliances

This document covers the design and manufacturing, installation and testing, operation and maintenance of vehicle fuelling appliances (VFA) for domestic fuelling of vehicles with compressed natural gas (CNG).
This document is applicable to VFAs having the following technical limits:
-   maximum compressing capacity: 20 Nm3/h (NTP);
-   maximum internal storage volume for outdoor installation: 400 l;
-   maximum gas outlet pressure: 200 bar at 15 °C;
This document is applicable to VFAs supplied with natural gas as defined in local applicable gas composition regulations or EN 16723 2, or with other gases meeting these requirements including biomethane, upgraded coal-bed methane (CBM) and gas from liquefied natural gas (LNG) vaporizer (on-site or off-site).
This document applies to VFAs not incorporating gas outlet metering systems.

Erdgasbetriebene Fahrzeuge - Fahrzeugbetankungsgeräte

Dieses Dokument behandelt Konstruktion und Herstellung, Installation und Prüfung, Betrieb und Instandhaltung von Fahrzeugbetankungsgeräten (VFA) zur privaten Betankung von Fahrzeugen mit verdichtetem Erdgas (CNG).
Dieses Dokument gilt für VFAs mit den folgenden technischen Einschränkungen:
-   höchste Verdichtungsleistung: 20 Nm3/h (NTP);
-   größtes internes Speichervolumen zur Außeninstallation: 400 l;
-   höchster Gasausgangsdruck: 200 bar bei 15 °C;
Dieses Dokument gilt für VFAs, die mit Erdgas, wie in anwendbaren einschlägigen Vorschriften zur Gaszusammensetzung oder EN 16723 2 definiert, oder mit anderen Gasen, die diese Anforderungen erfüllen, versorgt werden, einschließlich Biomethan, aufbereitetes Kohlenflözmethan (CBM) sowie (vor Ort oder an einem anderen Ort) aus einem Flüssigerdgasverdampfer (LNG) gewonnenes Gas.
Dieses Dokument gilt für VFAs ohne Gasausgangsmesssysteme.

Véhicules fonctionnant au gaz naturel - Applications de remplissage de véhicules

Le présent document concerne la conception et la fabrication, l'installation et les essais, l'exploitation et la maintenance des applications de remplissage de véhicules (VFA) pour le remplissage domestique de véhicules en gaz naturel comprimé (GNC).
Le présent document s’applique aux VFA présentant les limites techniques suivantes :
-   capacité de compression maximale : 20 Nm3/h (NTP) ;
-   volume de stockage interne maximal pour installation à l’extérieur : 400 l ;
-   pression maximale de sortie de gaz : 200 bar à 15 °C.
Le présent document s'applique aux VFA alimentées par gaz naturel, tel que défini par les règlements locaux applicables relatifs à la composition des gaz ou par l'EN 16723-2, ou par d’autres gaz satisfaisant à ces exigences, tels que le biométhane, le méthane de houille (MH) valorisé et le gaz provenant de gaz naturel liquéfié (GNL) vaporisé (sur ou hors site).
Le présent document s'applique aux VFA qui n’intègrent pas de systèmes de comptage de gaz.
