European foreword

This document (EN 50064:2018) has been prepared by CLC/TC 17AC, “High-voltage switchgear and

controlgear”.
The following dates are fixed:
• latest date by which this document has (dop) 2019-08-27
to be implemented at national level by
publication of an identical national
standard or by endorsement
• latest date by which the national (dow) 2021-08-27
standards conflicting with this document
have to be withdrawn

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

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

This document supersedes EN 50064:1989.

This European Standard has been revised by CENELEC Technical Committee 17AC High-voltage

switchgear and controlgear. It supplements the relevant product standards on gas-insulated switchgear and

controlgear in that it provides specific requirements for pressurized high-voltage switchgear and controlgear.

The present EN has been written to get a European specification for the design, construction, testing,

inspection and certification of pressurized enclosures used in high-voltage switchgear and controlgear.

In this respect this European Standard constitutes the exclusion of HV switchgear from the scope of the

Directive 2014/68/EU (superseding 97/23/EC) concerning pressure equipment. Article 1, 2. (l) excludes

“enclosures for high-voltage electrical equipment such as switchgear, controlgear, transformers, and rotating

machines” from the scope of the Directive.

This standard deals with gas-insulated switchgear enclosures of wrought aluminium and aluminium alloy and

their welding. For different enclosure materials, other European Standards are available.

SIST EN 50064:2019

Introduction

This standard covers the requirements for the design, construction, testing, inspection and certification of

gas-filled enclosures for use specifically in high-voltage switchgear and controlgear, or for associated gas-

filled equipment.
Special consideration is given to these enclosures for the following reasons.

(a) The enclosures usually form the containment of electrical equipment, thus their shape is determined by

electrical rather than mechanical requirements.

(b) The enclosures are installed in restricted access areas and the equipment is operated by instructed,

authorized persons only.

(c) As the thorough drying of the inert, non-corrosive gas-filling medium is fundamental to the satisfactory

operation of the electrical equipment, the gas is periodically checked. For this reason, no internal corrosion

allowance is required on the wall thickness of these enclosures.

(d) The enclosures are subjected to only small fluctuations of pressure as the gas-filling density will be

maintained within close limits to ensure satisfactory insulating and arc-quenching properties. Therefore, the

enclosures are not liable to fatigue due to pressure cycling.
(e) The operating pressure is relatively low.

Due to the foregoing reasons and to ensure maximum service continuity as well as to reduce the risk of

moisture and dust entering the enclosures which may endanger safe electrical operation of the switchgear,

no pressure tests should be carried out after installation and before placing in service and no periodic

inspection of the enclosure interiors or pressure tests should be carried out after the equipment is placed in

service.

4 Quality assurance

It is the intention of this standard that the switchgear manufacturer shall be responsible for achieving and

maintaining a consistent and adequate quality of the product.

Sufficient examinations shall be made by the enclosure manufacturer to ensure that the materials,

production and testing comply in all respects with the requirements of this standard.

Inspection by the user`s inspectors shall not absolve the switchgear manufacturer from his responsibility to

exercise such quality assurance procedures as to ensure that the requirements and the intent of this

standard are satisfied.
5 Normal and special service conditions
Clause 2 of EN 62271-1:2017 is applicable.

6 Materials
6.1 Selection of material

Any aluminium or aluminium alloy is permissible. A list of recommended materials is given in Table 1 based

on information from EN 13445-8:2014.

The elongation after fraction of any aluminium or aluminium alloy shall comply with EN 13445-8:2014, 5.2.

NOTE Contact with more noble metals, particularly copper and its alloys, can lead to heavy galvanic corrosion.

Austenitic stainless steel is an exception to this rule because of its protective oxide film and can often be used in contact

with aluminium.

Aluminium enclosures should be protected externally where, for example, they come into contact with mild

steel supports.

Bitumen, thin zinc sheet (which gives sacrificial protection) or a combination of these are useful in this

respect. Alternatively, the mild steel supports can be galvanized or zinc or aluminium sprayed.

It should be noted that contact with certain gasket materials can cause corrosion of aluminium. The gasket

manufacturer should be consulted.

These alloys are recommended because of their low content of copper and zinc (lower than 0,5 % each) as

well as their low content of magnesium (lower than 0,7 %).

Alloys listed in this table are similar but not identical regarding chemical composition and mechanical

properties. They are not interchangeable without a re-qualification of the enclosure, i.e. re-calculation or re-

testing.
The properties of the materials should be taken from the applicable standards.

For applications where specified temperatures exceed 100 °C heat treated materials are not permitted due to

the loss of material properties, i.e. the thermal treatment will be nullified.
6.2 Chemical analysis

The chemical composition shall be in accordance with their material specification materials except that all

materials shall have a maximum lead content of 150 pg/g.

It is recommended that the material to be used for welded components be produced from rolling or extrusion

ingots with hydrogen level no greater than 0,2 ml per 100 g aluminium, measured on liquid metal during

casting.

Ingots used shall comply with the requirements of the appropriate material specification and any special

requirement called for on the order; they shall be clean and free from harmful defects.

Providing the chemical analysis of the melt meets the requirements of the appropriate specification, the

founder may use scrap which arises from his own production from approved ingots, which is segregated and

identifiable. It may include heavy fettling scrap, but shall exclude all drosses and small particles such as

sawings and chippings.

NOTE Attention is drawn to a limitation of the range of aluminium-magnesium alloys. Alloys with magnesium

content above 4 % can become susceptible to stress-corrosion cracking after use for long periods at temperatures above

100 °C.
