What is this standard about?

This is the first in a programme of twelve European standards under the general title “Tanks for transport of dangerous goods”. It covers the vapour collection adaptor and coupler used to achieve a vapour tight path between the transport tank and the stationary loading and unloading facilities.

Who is this standard for?

Manufacturers, suppliers and operators of vapour collection adaptors and couplers

Why should you use this standard?

It specifies the performance requirements and critical dimensions of the vapour recovery adaptor fitted to the tank and the mating coupler fitted to a hose or to pipework connected to the stationary loading and unloading facilities. It also specifies the tests necessary to verify the compliance of the equipment with this standard.

The equipment specified by BS EN 13081 is suitable for use with liquid petroleum products and other dangerous substances of Class 3 of ADR [2] which have a vapour pressure not exceeding 110 kPa, at 50 °C and petrol, and which have no sub-classification as toxic or corrosive.

The vapour collection adaptor and coupler are part of the vapour collection system that is required to comply with the European Directive 94/63/EC on Volatile Organic Compounds (VOC) [1]. The vapour collection adaptor and coupler establish a vapour tight path between the transport tank and the stationary loading and unloading facilities.

What’s changed since the last update?

This first amendment to BS EN 13081 implements CEN amendment A1:2012. The following changes have been made:

  • In 3.2 a definition for “probe” has been added
  • In Annex A (normative) specifications for the opening of the adaptor have been added
  • In Annex B (normative) specifications for the opening of the coupler have been added
  • In Annex C (normative) specifications for the interlock have been added
