    Abstract - (Show below) - (Hide below)

    Specifies requirements for hose and hose assemblies for liquefied petroleum gases (LPG), natural gas, town gas manufactured from oil products, tempered liquefied gas, and simulated natural gas in transport, automotive, industrial and domestic applications. It provides for hose up to and including 100 mm inside diameter and 2.6 MPa maximum working pressure.

    Scope - (Show below) - (Hide below)

    This Standard specifies requirements for hose and hose assemblies for liquefied petroleum gases (LP Gas), natural gas, town gas manufactured from oil products, tempered liquefied petroleum gas and simulated natural gas in transport, automotive, industrial and domestic applications. It provides for hose up to and including 100 mm inside diameter and 2.6 MPa maximum working pressure.NOTES:Appendix A contains recommendations and advice on information which should be provided by the purchaser at the time of placing an enquiry or order. A guide to the user for continued in-service performance of the hose assembly has been included as Appendix B. For the convenience of personnel undertaking in-service testing, the limits for continued acceptable performance of hose assemblies have been stated in the Appendix. This Standard does not specify requirements for LP Gas hose for welding which is dealt with in AS 1335.
