This standard applies to positive displacement refrigerant compressors for stationary and mobile refrigerating systems and heat pumps defined in 3.1, hereafter called compressors.
It applies for compressors used in commercial and industrial appliances and with electrical energy supply including integral motors, up to 1 000 VAC and 1 500 VDC.
It applies to open drive, semi hermetic and hermetic motor compressors, which contain a positive compression function
This standard is not applicable to:
-   compressors used in household appliance for which EN 60335-2-34 applies;
-   compressors using water or air as refrigerant.
This standard does not deal with requirements for vibration and noise.
NOTE   Noise emission depends on the complete installation of the built-in compressors and the corresponding operating conditions.
For semi-hermetic and open drive compressors which include moving parts and for which the external envelope is primarily designed for mechanical loads, thermal loads (to limit the possible deformation due to temperature), stiffness of the structure (external mechanical loads and weight of the equipment), taking into account established safe industrial practice, it is considered that pressure is not a significant design factor.
Attached parts covering other functions e.g. oil separators, oil coolers, suction accumulators shall comply to EN 14276-1 or EN 13445-6 (cast iron) or prEN 13445-8:2003 (aluminium) or showing compliance to the relevant European requirements. This applies also to shells for hermetic compressors either welded or with any kind of permanent joint.
Requirements for compressors used in explosive atmospheres are not covered by this standard.
NOTE   For further guidance see EN 13463-1.
This standard deals with all significant hazards, hazardous situations and events relevant to compressors, when they are used as indented and under conditions for misuse which are reasonably foreseeable by the manufacturer (see Clause 4).

The document gives a scheme for carrying out a risk assessment for flammable refrigerants in case of house-hold refrigerators and freezers with refrigerants of group A3 according to EN 378 1, taking into consideration a sealed system and a refrigerant charge of not more than 150 g. Sealed systems are refrigerating systems in which all refrigerant containing parts are made tight by welding, brazing or similar permanent connection.
NOTE   For risk assessment the method with flow diagrams is selected, because these are helpful for checking the possible ignition of the whole appliances and to estimate the probability of ignition. It takes EN ISO 12100, EN 1050, EN 1127, EN 60335 2 24/A53, E DIN 7003 into consideration.
At least the probability of deflagration is the product of multiplication of the probability of defects of different components and the probability for the presence of explosive atmosphere and the probability for the ignition sources.

This European Standard defines the activities related to refrigerating circuits and the associated competence profiles and establishes procedures for assessing the competence of persons who carry out these activities.
NOTE    As a refrigerating circuit is considered not to incorporate electrical and electronic systems, activities in this area are not part of this standard. For competences on electrical and electronic systems, it is recommended to refer to national regulations or appropriate European or national standards. This European Standard does not apply to persons carrying out work on self contained refrigerating systems as defined in EN 378-1 from the initial design of the product to the complete manufacture of the product, provided the process is controlled and the methods used are checked by an organisation or individual, responsible for the compliance with statutory requirements on health, safety and environment.

This European Standard applies to positive displacement refrigerant compressors for stationary and mobile refrigerating systems and heat pumps defined in 3.1, hereafter called compressors.
It applies for compressors used in commercial and industrial appliances and with electrical energy supply including integral motors, up to 1 000 VAC and 1 500 VDC.
It applies to open drive, semi hermetic and hermetic motor compressors, which contain a positive compression function.
This standard is not applicable to:
-   compressors used in household appliance for which EN 60335 2 34 applies;
-   compressors using water or air as refrigerant.
This European Standard does not deal with requirements for vibration and noise.
NOTE 1   Compressors for automotive comfort air conditioning systems can be developed according e.g. SAE J 639.
NOTE 2   Noise emission depends on the complete installation of the built-in compressors and the corresponding operating conditions.
For semi-hermetic and open drive compressors which include moving parts and for which the external envelope is primarily designed for mechanical loads, thermal loads (to limit the possible deformation due to temperature), stiffness of the structure (external mechanical loads and weight of the equipment), taking into account established safe industrial practice, it is considered that pressure is not a significant design factor.
Attached parts covering other functions e.g. oil separators, oil coolers, suction accumulators should comply to EN 14276 1 or EN 13445 6 (cast iron) or EN 13445 8 (aluminium) or showing compliance to the relevant European requirements. This applies also to shells for hermetic compressors either welded or with any kind of permanent joint.
Requirements for compressors used in explosive atmospheres are not covered by this standard.
NOTE 3   For further guidance see EN 13463-1.
This European Standard deals with all significant hazards, hazardous situations and events relevant to compressors, when they are used as intended and under conditions for misuse which are reasonably foreseeable by the manufacturer (see Clause 4).
This European Standard specifies safety requirements for the design, construction, manufacture and testing, documentation and marking of compressors, including integral accessories, e.g. shut-off valve, if necessary.
The requirements in this standard take account of the intended use, as defined in EN ISO 12100:2010, 3.12.
This standard relates to the compressor itself which is to be incorporated in a refrigerating system.
This standard is not applicable to compressors as defined in the scope which are manufactured before the date of publication as EN.
