Rubber and plastics hoses and hose assemblies for use in the pharmaceutical and biotechnological industry - Bonded elastomeric hoses with or without a lining
|Publication Date:||1 June 2017|
|ICS Code (Hoses and hose assemblies):||23.040.70|
This European Standard applies to type D and type SD hose assemblies with hoses made of elastomers and bonded plastics for the transport of gaseous, vaporous, liquid or powdery substances in the pharmaceutical and the biotechnological industries. It specifies the classification, manufacturing and testing of as well as the materials, requirements and quality surveillance for hose assemblies.
These hose assemblies are intended to be used with the relevant substances at temperatures in the range from −30 °C to +100 °C, depending on the medium, and at operating pressures from −0,9 bar (vacuum) to 10 bar (see Tables 2 and 3). For hoses with a lining made of PTFE and derivatives, temperatures from −30 °C to +140 °C are permissible.
Hose assemblies in accordance with this standard are classified into two designs, A and B (see 3.3).
Attention is called to the fact that for certain applications the relevant legal regulations such as the Pressure Equipment Directive 2014/68/EU (PED) need to be complied with.
