This document specifies requirements for two types of thermoplastic multi-layer (non-vulcanized) transfer hoses and hose assemblies for carrying liquefied petroleum gas and liquefied natural gas. Each type is subdivided into two classes, one for onshore duties, and the other for offshore.
— Class A hose is for use onshore.
— Class B hose is for use offshore.
This document is applicable for hose sizes from 25 mm to 250 mm, working pressures from 10,5 bar to 25 bar and operating temperatures from −196 °C to +45 °C, according to class.
NOTE Offshore liquefied natural gas (LNG) hose assemblies are also specified in EN 1474-2. EN 1474-2 does not only specify offshore use, but also ship to shore and other LNG transfer applications.
