BS EN ISO 8230-2:2008 Safety requirements for dry-cleaning machines . Machines using perchloroethylene

BS EN ISO 8230-2 specifies safety requirements for dry-cleaning machines that exclusively use perchloroethylene (hereinafter known as “perc”) as their cleaning medium.

It applies to such dry-cleaning machines, within the scope of BS EN ISO 8230-1, when they are used as intended and under conditions of misuse that are reasonably foreseeable by the manufacturer.

It does not apply to:

  • Open-circuit dry-cleaning machines;
  • Transfer machines.

See BS EN ISO 8230-1 for the definitions of those machines.

BS EN ISO 8230-2, in conjunction with BS EN ISO 8230-1, deals with all significant hazards, significant hazardous situations and significant hazardous events that have been identified as being significant to the types of machines covered by BS EN ISO 8230-2 and which require specific action by the designer or manufacturer to eliminate or reduce the risk.

BS EN ISO 8230-2 deals with the following significant hazards specific to the use of perc, which can lead to the inhalation of unhealthy vapours, to perc contact with the skin (including of the feet) or eyes of the machine operator and those of other personnel and members of the public, as well as to water and ground contamination:

a) Perc emission to the workroom, seepage into the ground and sewer during operation and maintenance of the water separator

b) Perc emission resulting from operation, cleaning and maintenance of the distilling installation.

BS EN ISO 8230-2 applies to machines manufactured after the date of its issue.
