This International Standard in conjunction with ISO 10297:2014 and ISO 14246:2014 specifies design, type testing, marking and manufacturing tests, and examinations requirements for quick-release cylinder valves intended to be fitted to refillable transportable gas cylinders which convey non-toxic, non-oxidizing, and non-corrosive compressed or liquefied gases or extinguishing agents charged with compressed gases to be used for fire-extinguishing, explosion protection, and rescue applications.NOTE 1 The main application of such quick-release cylinder valves is in the fire-fighting industry. However, there are other applications such as to avalanche airbags, life raft inflation, and similar applications.This International Standard covers the function of a quick-release cylinder valve as a closure.This International Standard does not apply to quick-release cylinder valves for cryogenic equipment, for portable fire extinguishers, or for liquefied petroleum gas (LPG).NOTE 2 Quick-release cylinder valves of refillable propellant gas cylinders used as part of portable fire extinguishers are also covered by this International Standard, if these cylinders are transported separately.
