Gaseous hydrogen - Cylinders and tubes for stationary storage


This International Standard specifies the requirements for design, manufacture and testing of cylinders, tubes, and other pressure vessels of steel, stainless steel, aluminium alloys or of non-metallic construction material intended for the stationary storage of gaseous hydrogen of up to a maximum water capacity of 10 000 l and a maximum allowable working pressure not exceeding 110 MPa, of seamless metallic construction (Type 1) or of composite construction (Types 2, 3 and 4) without any non-seamless load sharing metallic components, hereafter referred to as pressure vessels.For Existing design already qualified for other applications (e.g. transportable applications) follow the requirements of Annex E.This International Standard is not intended as a specification for pressure vessels used for solid, liquid hydrogen or hybrid cryogenic-high pressure hydrogen storage applications.
