BS ISO 1217:2009+A1:2016 Displacement compressors. Acceptance tests

BS ISO 1217:2009+A1:2016

Displacement compressors. Acceptance tests

Status : Current, Under review   Published : January 2010



What is this standard about?

This international standard specifies methods for acceptance tests regarding volume rate of flow and power requirements of displacement compressors. It also specifies methods for testing liquid-ring type compressors.

Who is this standard for?

  • Manufacturers of compressors
  • Testers of compressors
  • Suppliers and users of compressors

Why should you use this standard? 

BS ISO 1217 specifies the operating and testing conditions which apply when a full performance test is specified. (For compressors manufactured in batches or in continuous production quantities and supplied against specified data, equivalent alternatives are given.)

Detailed instructions are given for a full performance test, including the measurement of volume flow rate and power requirement, the correction of measured values to specified conditions and means of comparing the corrected values with the guarantee conditions. This standard specifies methods for determining the value of the tolerances to be applied to the measurement of flow, power and specific power.

What’s changed since the last update?

  • It has been systematically reviewed by experts, who have taken into consideration recent material, technological and industry developments
  • This fourth edition is a technical revision of the standard 
  • It includes amendments to the definition of ‘ideal gas’ in the section on power
  • It includes updates to the section on efficiency
