What is the PED directive?

PED stands for Pressure Equipment Directive, a directive about products (97/23/CE) issued by the European Community and acknowledged by the Italian Legislative Decree no. 93/2000. The directive was issued to norm the design, fabrication, equipping and installation of pressure equipment. Just to mention some examples: in the specific case of LPG, there are some strict norms which rule its transportation and storage in pressurized tanks, which keep the gas in the liquid state.
Also the storage system must be supplied with specific equipment, as well as the gas pipe, tank or iron tank coming from the refineries, where the LPG is produced. The tanks themselves must be built in compliance with specific directives.
