Plinomeri - Mehovni plinomeri

Ta evropski standard določa zahteve in preskuse za konstrukcijo, delovanje, varnost ter proizvodnjo mehovnih plinomerov razreda 1,5 (v nadaljevanju »merilnikov«) z enojno koaksialno cevjo ali dvema cevnima priključkoma, ki se uporabljajo za merjenje prostornine gorivnih plinov prve, druge in tretje skupine v skladu s standardom EN 437:2003+A1:2009, pri največjem delovnem tlaku 0,5 bara in največji dejanski hitrosti pretoka 160 m3/h ter najnižjem območju temperature okolja in plina od −10 °C do 40 °C.
Ta standard se uporablja za merilnike z vgrajenim pretvornikom temperature (ali brez njega), ki so nameščeni na mestih, kjer so prisotni tresljaji in sunki majhnega pomena in na:
– zaprtih lokacijah (znotraj ali na prostem z zaščito, kot jo določa proizvajalec) s kondenzirano ali nekondenzirano vlago,
ali, če je tako določil proizvajalec:
– odprtih lokacijah (na prostem brez kakršnega koli prekritja) s kondenzirano ali nekondenzirano vlago,
– lokacijah z elektromagnetnimi motnjami, ki ustrezajo običajnim motnjam v stanovanjskih, komercialnih in manj zahtevnih industrijskih zgradbah.
Vse vrste tlaka, navedene v tem dokumentu, so tlak v merilniku, razen če ni navedeno drugače.
Točke 1–9 ter dodatka B in D so samo za namene načrtovanja in tipskega preskušanja.
Zahteve glede elektronskih indeksov, akumulatorjev, ventilov merilnika in dodatnih funkcionalnosti so podane v standardu EN 16314.
OPOMBA: Pri oblikovanju tega standarda je bila upoštevana vsebina »Mednarodnega priporočila R 137« v okviru publikacij OIML.
Bistvene spremembe v primerjavi s prejšnjo izdajo vključujejo:
– skladnost z Direktivo MID 2009/137/ES v zvezi z navedenimi napakami pri uporabi istih oznak in preskušanja Qmin pri navedeni najnižji in najvišji temperaturi plina;
– preoblikovano zaščito proti koroziji;
– revidiran preskus vzdržljivosti, da bi natančneje odražal trenutne pogoje delovanja;
– zahteve za nekovinske merilnike za zunanjo uporabo, ki se dodajo zaradi upoštevanja različnih značilnosti materiala;
– določilo glede merilnikov z elektronskimi indeksi in integriranimi zapornimi ventili;
– preskušanje pritrditve nalepk.
Dodatek A je bil preoblikovan tako, da podaja dodatne zahteve za merilnike, opremljene z vgrajeno napravo za pretvorbo temperature plina.
Če za preskusno opremo niso podane posebne zahteve, morajo biti uporabljeni instrumenti izsledljivi v nacionalnem ali mednarodnem referenčnem standardu, negotovost (2s) pa mora biti boljša od 1/5 največje vrednosti parametra za preskušanje. Za diferenčne rezultate mora biti ponovljivost (2s)/rešitev boljša od 1/5 največje vrednosti zadeve za preskušanje.
