As an OEM, we currently purchase an ASME marked tank (38 liters) for use in one of our products. We know our customers will be putting a liquid in it, pressurizing it to less than 6.9bar (generally less than 4.1 bar), and max temp of the liquid will be about 50C (ambient plant temp). However, we don't know what the liquid will be. It is up to the end user to decide. If we want to sell into Europe, does anyone know if we need PED for the system? If so, does having an ASME mark on the tank get you any closer to satisfying the PED? If we don't know what the customer is ultimately dispensing from the tank, how can we satisfy PED?
