    Abstract - (Show below) - (Hide below)

    Specifies requirements for the design, verification and manufacture of all gas cylinders for the storage and transport of compressed, dissolved and liquefied gases, of water capacity ranging from 0.1kg to 3000kg.

    Scope - (Show below) - (Hide below)

    This Standard specifies requirements for the design, verification and manufacture of all gas cylinders for the storage and transport of compressed, dissolved and liquefied gases, of water capacity ranging from 0.1 kg to 3000 kg.AS 2030.2 sets out additional requirements for compressed dissolved acetylene.NOTE: Designation AS 2030.3 is currently not in use.AS 2030.4 sets out additional requirements for closed cryogenic receptacles (formerly called insulated welded cylinders).AS 2030.5 sets out additional requirements for the filling, inspection and testing of refillable gas cylinders, except cylinders for dissolved acetylene and closed cryogenic receptacles.This Standard does not apply to:(a) Cylinders forming part of aircraft equipment and used solely in aircraft other than as a reference made in a direction pursuant to the Civil Aviation Regulations.(b) Aerosol containers and gas cartridges.(c) Non-refillable cylinders.The requirements for gas cylinders in fire extinguisher systems and fire extinguishers, apply only where suitable requirements are not given in another Australian Standard.NOTES:1 The term ‘cylinder’ is used interchangeably with ‘gas cylinder’ in this Standard.2 Whilst this Standard is written for application to gas cylinders, some of its requirements are referenced by Standards related to pressure vessels (e.g. automotive fuel vessels for LP Gas).
