European foreword

This document (CEN/TR 14473:2020) has been prepared by Technical Committee CEN/TC 23

“Transportable gas cylinders”, the secretariat of which is held by BSI.

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

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

This document supersedes CEN/TR 14473:2014.
Compared to the previous version, the following changes apply:
a) data of further porous materials has been added;
b) the structure of the document has been changed:

— Clause 7 contains data for porous materials for acetylene cylinders approved to TPED

evaluation of conformity at time of manufacture;

— Clause 8 contains data for porous materials for acetylene cylinders reassessed in accordance

with TPED;

— Clause 9 contains data for porous materials for individual acetylene cylinders and that are type

approved based on national regulations;

c) the document has been aligned with the current principles and rules for the structure and drafting

of CEN and CENELEC documents.

For amendments or changes to this report, an application shall be made to the Secretariat of

CEN/TC 23, with a copy of the documentation based on which the acetylene cylinders are placed on the

market (type approval by the competent authority or conformity assessment in accordance with

Directive 2010/35/EU (TPED)).

Introduction

This document contains data and information about monolithic porous materials for acetylene

cylinders.
It does not contain information about non-monolithic porous materials.

In International Standards, weight is equivalent to a force, expressed in newton. However, in common

parlance the word “weight” continues to be used to mean “mass”, but this practice is deprecated

(ISO 80000-4).

In this document the unit bar is used, due to its universal use in the field of technical gases. It should,

however, be noted that bar is not an SI unit, and that the according SI unit for pressure is Pa

5 5 2
(1 bar = 10 Pa = 10 N/m ).

Pressure values given in this document are given as gauge pressure (pressure exceeding atmospheric

pressure) unless noted otherwise.

1 Scope

This document contains information about monolithic porous materials used in individual acetylene

cylinders and in acetylene cylinder bundles in Europe. It does not claim to be exhaustive.

NOTE Where there is any conflict between this document and any applicable regulation, the regulation

always takes precedence.
2 Normative references
There are no normative references in this document.
3 Terms and definitions
No terms and definitions are listed in this document.

ISO and IEC maintain terminological databases for use in standardization at the following addresses:

— ISO Online browsing platform: available at https://www.iso.org/obp
— IEC Electropedia: available at http://www.electropedia.org/
4 Source and nature of the data about the listed porous materials

The data contained in the tables in Clauses 7 and 8 are derived from the documentation based on which

the acetylene cylinders were placed or still are on the market (type approval by the competent

authority or conformity assessment in accordance with TPED) and according to which they are

operated. In some cases a type approval or a TPED-certificate might no longer be valid but the cylinders

that are already on the market still may be used. For this purpose, information on old porous materials

is provided.

NOTE 1 The documentation provided was examined carefully before including the according information into

this Technical Report. Nevertheless, there might be discrepancies to the actual approval, e.g. because more recent

amendments exist which were not made available at the time of preparing this document. In some cases not all

information was available in the documents provided and consequently the according information is missing (for

example the maximum top clearance or the working pressure).

Acetylene cylinders that were reassessed in accordance with TPED may be filled with the filling values

conforming to the reassessment certificate throughout the EU. It should be noted that these values

might deviate from those of prior national approvals which still apply to those cylinders that were not

reassessed according to TPED.

Where no official documentation could be made available to CEN/TC 23/WG 31, the data for the porous

material is added with a note, that this information is shared by expert/porous material manufacturer

as extracted from the official documentation, but has not been presented to the working group. This is

of especial note in the case of reassessed acetylene cylinders, since every user can ask for a specific

reassessment.

Clause 7 contains information on porous materials for acetylene cylinders approved to TPED. It also

contains information on filling conditions for acetylene cylinder bundles in accordance with

EN ISO 13088:2012. The same filling ratio applies for the whole EU.

Clause 9 contains information on porous materials used in individual acetylene cylinders and cylinder

bundles that were type approved based on national regulations and/or standards.

If several years are indicated for the approval or certification, they refer to according amendments in

addition.

NOTE 2 The initial agreements of the French porous materials have been delivered on the basis of a data pair

“porous material/cylinder manufacturer”. Therefore, the name of the cylinder manufacturer has been detailed:

Chevalier Bertrand (CB), Schneider Industrie (SI), Pecquet Tesson (PTC), Société Métallurgique de Gerzat (SMG)

and Siebel (S).

NOTE 3 Every user (owner) of a cylinder can decide on its own commercial acetylene load, provided that this

load is less or equal to the maximum load given in the agreement.
5 Country codes

7 Data for porous materials for acetylene cylinders approved to TPED
evaluation of conformity at time of manufacture

Clause 7 contains information on porous materials for pi-marked acetylene cylinders which were

placed or still are on the market. Such porous materials are type tested in most cases according to

EN ISO 3807, EN 1800 or ISO 3807-1. It also contains information on filling conditions for acetylene

cylinder bundles in accordance with EN 12755 or EN ISO 13088:2012.

NOTE 1 According to ADR:2019, EN 1800 was used for type approvals until December 2016. ISO 3807-1

(applicable until 31 December 2020) or ISO 3807 are used at time of publication of this Technical Report for the

type approval of UN-Cylinders and EN ISO 3807 is used for non-UN-Cylinders.

NOTE 2 EN 1800 and ISO 3807-1 were superseded by EN ISO 3807 in 2013. Nevertheless type approvals for

the monolithic materials listed in this Technical Report were conducted according to these standards.

NOTE 3 EN 12755 was superseded by EN ISO 13088:2012. Nevertheless the filling conditions for bundles listed

in this Technical Report are determined/calculated according to these standards.

Tables 4 to 15 provide data of porous materials for single cylinders and bundles with TPED evaluation

of conformity. For an overview, refer to Table 1.
The following information is given for each porous material:

— the cylinder water capacity, in l, to which the filling conditions (solvent content, acetylene content,

working pressure) are applicable;

— the specified solvent content, in kg/l, that the acetylene cylinder shall contain per litre water

capacity in accordance with the type tests;

— the maximum acetylene content (including saturation acetylene), in kg/l, that the acetylene

cylinder shall contain per litre water capacity in accordance with the type tests. Filling tolerances,

especially depending on the scale, have to be taken into account to avoid overfilling.

— the working pressure (always given as gauge pressure [bar]) of the acetylene cylinder. For bundles

it gives the maximum number of consecutive fillings before the bundle has to be dismantled and

solvent has to be replenished in the individual cylinders.

8 Data for porous materials for acetylene cylinders reassessed in accordance
with TPED

TPED allows to reassess cylinders initially manufactured according to national regulations. Successfully

reassessed cylinders, after pi-marking, can be used with the same filling ratio, same solvent content and

same acetylene content in all European countries.

Clause 8 contains information on porous materials for acetylene cylinders reassessed in accordance

with TPED.

The following tables are ordered alphabetically according to the name of the porous material. Within

these tables the countries are ranked alphabetically according to the country codes as given in Clause 5.

The column “Cylinder water capacity” gives the cylinder water capacities, in l, to which the filling

conditions (solvent content, acetylene content, working pressure) as given in the subsequent columns

are applicable.

The column “Solvent content” lists the specified solvent content, in kg/l, that the acetylene cylinder

shall contain per litre water capacity according to the national approval.

In case of bundle, the column “Solvent content” lists the minimum and the maximum solvent content,

in kg/l, that the acetylene cylinder in a bundle shall contain per litre water capacity of the cylinder

according to the national approval. These values determine the solvent operating range.

The column “Acetylene content” lists the maximum acetylene content (including saturation ace

Introduction

This report contains data and information about monolithic porous materials for acetylene cylinders.

This report does not contain information about non-monolithic porous materials.

In International Standards, weight is equivalent to a force, expressed in Newton. However, in common

parlance the word “weight” continues to be used to mean “mass”, but this practice is deprecated

(ISO 80000-4).

In this European Technical Report the unit bar is used, due to its universal use in the field of technical

gases. It should, however, be noted that bar is not an SI unit, and that the according SI unit for pressure

is Pa.

Pressure values given in this European Technical Report are given as gauge pressure (pressure

exceeding atmospheric pressure) unless noted otherwise.

1 Scope

This Technical Report contains information about monolithic porous materials used in individual

acetylene cylinders and in acetylene cylinder bundles. It does not claim to be exhaustive.

NOTE Where there is any conflict between this European Technical Report and any applicable regulation, the

regulation always takes precedence.
2 Normative references

The following documents are referred to in the text in such a way that some or all of their content

constitutes requirements of this document. For dated references, only the edition cited applies. For

undated references, the latest edition of the referenced document (including any amendments) applies.

There are no normative references in this document.
3 Terms and definitions
No terms and definitions are listed in this document.

ISO and IEC maintain terminological databases for use in standardization at the following addresses:

— IEC Electropedia: available at http://www.electropedia.org/
— ISO Online browsing platform: available at http://www.iso.org/obp
4 Source and nature of the data about the listed porous materials

The data contained in the tables in Clauses 6, 7 and 8 are derived from the documentation based on

which the acetylene cylinders were placed or still are on the market (type approval by the competent

authority or conformity assessment in accordance with TPED) and according to which they are

operated. In some cases a type approval or a TPED-certificate might no longer be valid but the cylinders

that are already on the market still may be used. For this purpose, information on old porous materials

is provided.

NOTE 1 The documentation provided was examined carefully before including the according information into

this Report. Nevertheless, there might be discrepancies to the actual approval, e.g. because more recent

amendments exist which were not made available at the time of preparing this Report. In some cases not all

information was available in the documents provided and consequently the according information is missing (for

example the maximum top clearance or the working pressure).

Acetylene cylinders that were reassessed in accordance with TPED may be filled with the filling values

conforming to the reassessment certificate throughout the EU. It should be noted that these values

might deviate from those of prior national approvals which still apply to those cylinders that were not

reassessed according to TPED.

Where no official documentation could be made available to CEN/TC 23/WG 31, no information is

included in this technical report, meaning that the information is not exhaustive. This is of especial note

in the case of reassessed acetylene cylinders, since every user can ask for a specific reassessment.

Clause 6 contains information on porous materials for acetylene cylinders approved or reassessed to

TPED. It also contains information on filling conditions for acetylene cylinder bundles in accordance

with EN ISO 13088. The same filling ratio applies for the whole EU.

Clause 7 contains information on porous materials used in individual acetylene cylinders that were type

approved based on national regulations and/or standards.
---------------------- Page: 7 ----------------------
kSIST-TP FprCEN/TR 14473:2018
FprCEN/TR 14473:2018 (E)

Clause 8 contains information on porous materials used in acetylene cylinder bundles that were

approved based on national regulations and/or standards.

If several years are indicated for the approval or certification they refer to according amendments in

addition.

NOTE 2 The initial agreements of the French porous materials have been delivered on the basis of a data pair

“porous material/cylinder manufacturer”. Therefore, the name of the cylinder manufacturer has been detailed:

Chevalier Bertrand (CB), Schneider Industrie (SI), Pecquet Tesson (PTC), Société Métallurgique de Gerzat (SMG)

and Siebel (S).

NOTE 3 Every user (owner) of a cylinder can decide on its own commercial acetylene load, provided that this

load is less or equal to the maximum load given in the agreement.
5 Country codes

In this Technical Report countries are identified in accordance with their distinguishing signs for motor

vehicles according to the Vienna Convention on Road Traffic which is also the basis for marking of

cylinders according to the ADR (see Annex A to the ADR, 6.2.2.7) as follows:
A Austria F France L Luxembourg
B Belgium FIN Finland N Norway
BG Bulgaria GB United Kingdom NL Netherlands
CH Switzerland GR Greece P Portugal

6 Data for porous materials for acetylene cylinders approved to TPED
6.1 Data for porous materials for acetylene cylinders with TPED evaluation of
conformity at time of manufacture

Sub-clause 6.1 contains information on porous materials for pi-marked acetylene cylinders which were

placed or still are on the market. Such porous materials are type tested in most cases according to

EN ISO 3807, EN 1800 or ISO 3807-1. It also contains information on filling conditions for acetylene

cylinder bundles in accordance with EN 12755 or EN ISO 13088.

NOTE 1 according to ADR:2015 EN 1800 was used for type approvals until December 2016. ISO 3807-1 is used

for the type approval of UN-Cylinders and EN ISO 3807 is used for non-UN-Cylinders.

NOTE 2 EN 1800 and ISO 3807-1 were superseded by EN ISO 3807 in 2013. Nevertheless type approvals for

the monolithic materials were conducted according to these standards.

NOTE 3 EN 12755 was superseded by EN ISO 13088 in 2012. Nevertheless type approvals for the monolithic

materials were conducted according to these standards.

The following tables are ordered alphabetically according to the name of the porous material.

Column 1 gives the cylinder water capacities, in l, to which the filling conditions (solvent content,

acetylene content, working pressure) as given in the subsequent columns are applicable.

---------------------- Page: 8 ----------------------
kSIST-TP FprCEN/TR 14473:2018
FprCEN/TR 14473:2018 (E)

Column 2 lists the specified solvent content, in kg/l, that the acetylene cylinder shall contain per litre

water capacity in accordance with the type tests according to EN ISO 3807, EN 1800 or ISO 3807-1.

Column 3 lists the maximum acetylene content (including saturation acetylene), in kg/l, that the

acetylene cylinder shall contain per litre water capacity in accordance with the type tests according to

EN ISO 3807, EN 1800 or ISO 3807-1. Filling tolerances, especially depending on the scale, have to be

taken into account to avoid overfilling.

Column 4 lists the working pressure (always given as gauge pressure [bar]) of the acetylene cylinder as

calculated in accordance with EN ISO 3807, EN 1800 or ISO 3807-1. For bundles it gives the maximum

no. of consecutive fillings before the bundle has to be dismantled and solvent has to be replenished in

the individual cylinders.

7 Data for porous materials for individual acetylene cylinders and that are type
approved based on national regulations

Clause 7 contains information on porous materials for individual acetylene cylinders which were type

approved based on national regulations and/or standards.

The following tables are ordered alphabetically according to the name of the porous material. Within

these tables the countries are ranked alphabetically according to the country codes as given in Clause 5.

Column 4 gives the cylinder water capacities, in l, to which the filling conditions (solvent content,

acetylene content, working pressure) as given in the subsequent columns are applicable.

Column 5 lists the specified solvent content, in kg/l, that the acetylene cylinder shall contain per litre

water capacity according to the national approval.

Column 6 lists the maximum acetylene content (including saturation acetylene except where mentioned

otherwise), in kg/l, that the acetylene cylinder shall contain per litre water capacity according to the

national approval.

Column 7 lists the working pressure of the acetylene cylinder according to the national approval (based

on a settled pressure at 15 °C).
