This European Standard is applicable to the selection of bolting for equipment subject to the Pressure Equipment Directive 97/23/EC. It specifies standards and additional requirements for dimensions, materials and technical conditions of delivery for bolting. The bolting selection covered by this European Standard is regarded to be used for combination with flanges according to the series EN 1092 (PN designated flanges) and the series EN 1759 (Class designated flanges). The selection is based on commonly used materials, bolts and nuts. It covers temperature ranges of the general service of standard flanges (based on PN or Class).
