This part of IEC 60794 is a family specification that covers
drinking water pipe cables and subducts for installation by blowing
Drinking water pipe cable and subduct constructions have to meet the different requirements of the drinking water companies and/or associations regarding chemical, environmental, operational interactions and in general maintenance conditions.
A table of preferential applications, describing drinking water pipe cable characteristics versus methods of installation is reported in Annex A for drinking water pipe cables.
Clause 4 describes a blank detail specification for drinking
water pipe cables and subducts for installation by blowing and/or
Detail specifications may be prepared on the basis of this family specification.
The parameters specified in this standard may be affected by measurement uncertainty arising either from measurement errors or calibration errors due to lack of suitable standards. Acceptance criteria should be interpreted with respect to this consideration.
The number of fibres tested is representative of the drinking water line cable and should be agreed between the customer and the supplier.
