NSF/ANSI 140-2012

Sustainability Assessment for Carpet

NSF International / 27-Nov-2012 / 54 pages

This Standard is intended to enable organizations throughout the carpet supply chain to apply
performance requirements to achieve sustainable attributes and demonstrate compliance with levels of
achievement through quantifiable metrics. The Standard is inclusive, is based on life cycle assessment
(LCA) principles, and provides benchmarks for continuous improvement and innovation.

This Standard is intended to allow inclusive participation and encourage the progressive movement of the
carpet industry toward sustainability. This Standard identifies requirements of sustainable attribute
performance and three levels of achievement by which carpet materials and products can be measured
with respect to specific attributes that indicate progress toward sustainability.

While this Standard can be used on any carpet product, it is intended to be used for evaluation of
commercial carpet products by providing a product evaluation methodology that is additive to emerging
commercial green building standards.

This Standard does not apply to the packaging of sustainable carpets or to the adhesive or padding
products used in the installation of carpet products.

This Standard is voluntary, but emphasizes disclosure of information on both impacts and benefits of a
carpet or carpet product from an environmental and sustainability perspective.

All products or processes can be found compliant to this Standard if they are able to achieve all
prerequisites and score the minimum required for compliance as specified in 4.

IEC 61674 Ed. 2.0 b:2012

Medical electrical equipment – Dosimeters with ionization chambers and/or semiconductor detectors as used in X-ray diagnostic imaging

Edition: 2.0
International Electrotechnical Commission / 29-Nov-2012 / 74 pages

IEC 61674:2012 specifies the performance and some related constructional requirements of diagnostic dosimeters intended for the measurement of air kerma, air kerma length product or air kerma rate, in photon radiation fields used in radiography, including mammography, radioscopy and computed tomography, for X-radiation with generating potentials not greater than 150 kV. This International Standard is applicable to the performance of dosimeters with vented ionization chambers and/or semiconductor detectors as used in X-ray diagnostic imaging. The object of this standard is to establish requirements for a satisfactory level of performance for diagnostic dosimeters, and to standardize the methods for the determination of compliance with this level of performance. This standard is not concerned with the safety aspects of dosimeters. The diagnostic dosimeters covered by this standard are not intended for use in the patient environment and, therefore, the requirements for electrical safety applying to them are contained in IEC 61010-1. This second edition cancels and replaces the first edition and constitutes a technical revision.

API MPMS Chapter 20.3

Measurement of Multiphase Flow

Edition: 1st
American Petroleum Institute / 01-Jan-2013 / 72 pages

This standard addresses multiphase flow measurement in the production environment, upstream of the custody transfer (single-phase) measurement point, where allocation measurement for onshore, offshore, or subsea is applied. For other multiphase flow measurement applications such as reservoir management, well tests, and flow assurance, the standard can be used as a reference or guide. However, the focus of this standard is on those applications where the accuracy of multiphase flow measurement for allocation systems is required.

This document refers to existing standards and recommended practices to supplement the guidance it provides in this subject area. The document addresses principles used in multiphase flow measurement, multiphase metering types and classifications, assessment of expected performance, and selecting and operating multiphase measurement systems. Operational requirements or constraints are addressed, including expectations for flow meter acceptance, calibration criteria, flow loop and in situ verifications, and other guidance specific to different multiphase flow metering applications. The document does not address specific meter configurations.

NFPA (Fire) 290

Standard for Fire Testing of Passive Protection Materials for Use on LP-Gas Containers, 2013 Edition

National Fire Protection Association / 17-Dec-2012 / 9 pages

Fire resistance is a vital element of any fire hazard or fire risk assessment. Rely on the 2013 NFPA 289 for the latest testing methodology.

Follow the criteria in NFPA 290: Standard for Fire Testing of Passive Protection Materials for Use on LP-Gas Containers to evaluate the fire performance characteristics of passive protection materials applied to the exterior of liquefied petroleum (LP) gas containers in a torch fire environment.

This test method was derived from one that previously appeared in an annex of NFPA 58: Liquefied Petroleum Gas Code. The purpose of this procedure is to identify thermal protection insulating systems that retard or prevent the release of the container's contents in a fire environment. The 2013 edition includes a new definition for fire resistance.
