Foreword

ISO (the International Organization for Standardization) is a worldwide federation of national standards bodies (ISO member bodies). The work of preparing International Standards is normally carried out through ISO technical committees. Each member body interested in a subject for which a technical committee has been established has the right to be represented on that committee. International organizations, governmental and non-governmental, in liaison with ISO, also take part in the work. ISO collaborates closely with the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) on all matters of electrotechnical standardization.

The procedures used to develop this document and those intended for its further maintenance are described in the ISO/IEC Directives, Part 1. In particular the different approval criteria needed for the different types of ISO documents should be noted. This document was drafted in accordance with the editorial rules of the ISO/IEC Directives, Part 2 (see www.iso.org/directives).

Attention is drawn to the possibility that some of the elements of this document may be the subject of patent rights. ISO shall not be held responsible for identifying any or all such patent rights. Details of any patent rights identified during the development of the document will be in the Introduction and/or on the ISO list of patent declarations received (see www.iso.org/patents).

Any trade name used in this document is information given for the convenience of users and does not constitute an endorsement.

For an explanation on the meaning of ISO specific terms and expressions related to conformity assessment, as well as information about ISO's adherence to the WTO principles in the Technical Barriers to Trade (TBT) see the following URL: Foreword - Supplementary information

The committee responsible for this document is ISO/TC 22, Road vehicles, Subcommittee SC 41, Specific aspects for gaseous fuels.

1 Scope

This part of ISO 15500 specifies tests and requirements for the pressure indicator, a compressed natural gas fuel system component intended for use on the types of motor vehicles defined in ISO 3833.

This part of ISO 15500 is applicable to vehicles using natural gas in accordance with ISO 15403‑1 (mono-fuel, bi-fuel, or dual-fuel applications). It is not applicable to the following:

a) liquefied natural gas (LNG) fuel system components located upstream of, and including, the vaporizer;

b) fuel containers;

c) stationary gas engines;

d) container mounting hardware;

e) electronic fuel management;

f) refuelling receptacles.

NOTE 1 It is recognized that miscellaneous components not specifically covered herein can be examined to meet the criteria of this part of ISO 15500 and tested according to the appropriate functional tests.

NOTE 2 All references to pressure in this part of ISO 15500 are to be considered gauge pressures unless otherwise specified.

NOTE 3 This part of ISO 15500 is based upon a service pressure for natural gas as a fuel of 20 MPa [200 bar[1]] settled at 15 °C. Other service pressures can be accommodated by adjusting the pressure by the appropriate factor (ratio). For example, a 25 MPa (250 bar) service pressure system will require pressures to be multiplied by 1,25.

2 Normative references

The following documents, in whole or in part, are normatively referenced in this document and are indispensable for its application. For dated references, only the edition cited applies. For undated references, the latest edition of the referenced document (including any amendments) applies.

ISO 15500‑1, Road vehicles ? Compressed natural gas (CNG) fuel system components ? Part 1: General requirements and definitions

ISO 15500‑2:?[2], Road vehicles ? Compressed natural gas (CNG) fuel system components ? Part 2: Performance and general test methods

3 Terms and definitions

For the purposes of this document, the terms and definitions given in ISO 15500‑1 apply.

4 Marking

Marking of the component shall provide sufficient information to allow the following to be traced:

a) the manufacturer's or agent's name, trademark or symbol;

b) the model designation (part number);

c) the working pressure or pressure and temperature range.

The following additional markings are recommended:

? the direction of flow (when necessary for correct installation);

? the type of fuel;

? electrical ratings (if applicable);

? the symbol of the certification agency;

? the type approval number;

? the serial number or date code;

? a reference to this part of ISO 15500.

NOTE This information can be provided by a suitable identification code on at least one part of the component when it consists of more than one part.

5 Construction and assembly

5.1 Pressure transducers and gauges shall comply with the applicable provisions of ISO 15500‑1 and ISO 15500‑2 and with the tests specified in Clause 6. Tolerances should follow the specifications of ISO 15500‑2.

5.2 The pressure indicator shall be capable of displaying at least 1,5 times the service pressure.

5.3 If the pressure indicator is a gauge, it shall be equipped with a shatter-proof lens and possess an external means of pressure relief. Potential release shall not be directed to the front of the gauge.

6 Tests 6.1 Applicability

6.2 Hydrostatic strength

Test the pressure indicator according to the procedure for testing hydrostatic strength specified in ISO 15500‑2. The test pressure shall be 2,5 times the working pressure.

6.3 Leakage

Test the pressure indicator at the temperatures and pressures given in Table 2.

6.4 Continued operation

6.4.1 Test the pressure indicator in accordance with the procedure for testing continued operation given in ISO 15500‑2:?, Clause 9 for 20 000 cycles; a cycle consists of pressurization to working pressure, followed by depressurization to less than 0,5 times the working pressure.

6.4.2 Perform the leakage test in accordance with 6.3.

6.5 Insulation resistance

This test is designed to check for a potential failure of the insulation between the two-pin coil assembly and the pressure indicator casing.

Apply 1 000 V d. c. between one of the connector pins and the housing of the pressure indicator for at least 2 s. The minimum allowable resistance shall be 240 kΩ.

6.6 Minimum operating voltage

The minimum operating voltage at room temperature shall be ≤8 V for a 12 V system and ≤16 V for a 24 V system.

The component shall be pressurized at 0,75 times working pressure during the test and the reading shall be within the manufacturer's specified tolerance.
