Over deze norm
This European Standard applies to centrifuges aiming at separation of liquid/liquid/solid/solid or at least two of these substances. It gives requirements to minimise the risks caused by the hazards specified in 1.2. The Standard deals with the significant hazards associated with the operation of centrifuges. The Standard gives requirements for minimising the risks caused by the following hazards: - mechanical hazards common to all types of centrifuges, except those specified in 1.3; - ergonomical hazards; - electrical hazards. The standard also covers requirements for noise measurements. Types of centrifuges and hazards excluded Types of centrifuges excluded: - centrifuges with a kinetic energy of rotation less than 200 Joule; - centrifuges designated by their manufacturers for domestic use; - centrifuges designated by their manufacturers as laboratory centrifuges according to EN 61010-2-020, including Amendment 1; - centrifuges designated by their manufacturers for forming, i.e. centrifugal hot metal casting machines. Hazards excluded: - thermal hazards; - hazards specific to processing radioactive products; - hazards specific to microbiological processing - including viral and parasitic hazards; - hazards from processing corrosive and/or erosive materials; - hazards from processes involving flammable or explosive substances; - hazards caused by leakage of hazardous substances; - hazards caused by unsuitable hygienic design for applications involving food products; - other application specific hazards which must be dealt with, either according to application specific standards (e.g. EN 12505), or EN 292. This standard applies to centrifuges which are manufactured after the date of issue of this standard.
