Gas cylinders ICS 23.020.35
Ministerial Decree No. 103/2019 (2 pages, in Arabic) mandating the following Egyptian standards:
- ES 5057-1 " Transportable gas cylinders - Refillable welded steel gas cylinders - Design and construction – Part: 1 Carbon steel " (51 pages, in English). ES 5057-2" Transportable gas cylinders - Refillable welded steel gas cylinders - Design and construction - Part 2: Stainless steel" (53 pages, in English).
The Ministerial Decree No.103/2019 gives the producers and importers a six-month transitional period to abide by these Egyptian standards ES 5057-1,5057-2 which specify the minimum requirements concerning material, design, construction and workmanship, manufacturing processes and testing of refillable transportable welded carbon steel gas cylinders of water capacities from 0.5 l up to and including 150 l for compressed, liquefied and dissolved gases.
It should be noted that these standards cancel and supersede the Egyptian standard ES 5057/2006 "Liquefied chlorine gas cylinders of water capacity 420-840 litre refillable welded steel – design, construction and testing" (37 pages, in Arabic). Worth mentioning is that these standards adopt the technical content of EN 13322-1:2003/A1:2006, EN 13322-2:2003/A1:2006.
