NFPA/T3.29.2 R2-2000 (R2014)

Standard Title:Pressure switch – Pressure rating supplement to NFPA/T2.6.1 R2-2000, Fluid power components – Method for verifying the fatigue and establishing the burst pressure ratings of the pressure containing envelope of a metal fluid power pressure switchReferenced Standards:NFPA/T2.6.1 R2, ANSI/IEEE 268, ISO 1000, ASTM E466, ISO 5598Standard Scope:This standard provides: test procedures for conducting a verification of the fatigue and establishment of burst pressure ratings on pressure switch envelopes; test and statistical methods for generating fatigue distribution data; common requirements and an industry wide philosophy in judging one type of pressure capability for fluid power pressure switches; uniform methods of product comparison. This standard limits conditions as follows: constant amplitude, pressure induced loading of the elements that constitute or maintain the pressure containing envelope; product life of at least 100,000 cycles; defined conditions for pressure levels and pulse durations; temperatures from the charpy impact transition temperature to the threshold of creep sensitivity; environments which are chemically compatible with the materials of the pressure containing envelope; materials that are aluminum, magnesium, steel, iron, copper based alloys, cobalt, titanium, stainless steels, nickel steels and Monel. Specifically excluded are creep sensitive materials such as: zinc, plastic, rubber, and sealing devices. This standard does not include functional performance of a pressure switch, nor the ability to maintain a set point, when either the rated fatigue pressure or the rated burst pressure has been applied to the pressure containing envelope.
