ISO 11114-1
Gas Cylinders - Compatibility of cylinder and valve materials with gas contents
    Part 1: Metallic materials

     

 

Scope

This standard provides requirements for the selection of safe combinations of metallic cylinder and valve materials and cylinder gas content. The compatibility data given is related to single gases and to gas mixtures. Seamless metallic, welded metallic and composite gas cylinders and their valves, used to contain compressed, liquefied and dissolved gases, are considered.

Part 2: Non-Metallic materials

     

 

Scope

This standard gives guidance in the selection and evaluation of compatibility between non-metallic materials for gas cylinders and valves and the gas content. It also covers bundles, tubes and pressure drums.

Gas Cylinders - Compatibility of cylinder and valve materials with gas contents

     Part 4: Test methods for selecting metallic materials resistant to hydrogen embrittlement

 

     

Scope

ISO 11114-4: 2017 specifies test methods and the evaluation of results from these tests in order to qualify steels suitable for use in the manufacture of gas cylinders (up to 3 000 l) for hydrogen and hydrogen bearing embrittling gases.

This document only applies to seamless steel gas cylinders.

The requirements of this document are not applicable if at least one of the following conditions for the intended gas service is fulfilled:

- the working pressure of the filled embrittling gas is less than 20 % of the test pressure of the cylinder;

- the partial pressure of the filled embrittling gas of a gas mixture is less than 5 MPa (50 bar) in the case of hydrogen and other embrittling gases, with the exception of hydrogen sulphide and methyl mercaptan; in such cases, the partial pressure shall not exceed 0,25 MPa (2,5 bar).

NOTE In such cases, it is possible to design the cylinder as for ordinary (non-embrittling) gases.
