BS EN 14876 is relevant to pressure drums used for carrying bulk industrial gasses (e.g. ammonia, sulphur dioxide and chlorine).

This standard is for use in the water treatment, food preservation, agricultural and chemical industries. The gasses carried in these pressure drums are used by many and varied industries.

Pressure drums can be transported and handled worldwide and it is essential that they retain their integrity and do not become damaged whilst in transit.

Experience of the inspection and testing of pressure drums which is specified in this European standard is an important factor when determining whether a pressure drum should be returned into service. The principal aim of a periodic inspection and testing procedure is that, at the completion of the test, the pressure drums may be reintroduced into service for a further period of time.

Experience of the inspection and testing of pressure drums which is specified in this European standard is an important factor when determining whether a pressure drum should be returned into service.

BS EN 14876 deals with welded steel transportable pressure drums intended for compressed and liquefied gases under pressure of water capacity from 150 litres up to 1 000 litres.

This European Standard specifies the requirements for periodic inspection and testing to verify the integrity of such pressure drums to be re-introduced into service for a further period of time. It also defines a procedure to qualify existing pressure drums for free movement between member states of the European Union
