Building valves - Manually operated copper alloy and stainless steel ball valves for potable water supply in buildings - Tests and requirements
|Publication Date:||17 December 2003|
|ICS Code (Water supply systems):||91.140.60|
This European Standard applies primarily to copper alloy ball valves, dimensions DN 8 to DN 100, for potable water supply in buildings up to PN 10 and a distribution temperature of 65 C. Occasional excursions up to 90 C are permitted for a period of 1 h maximum. This standard applies also to ball valves in combination with other components in the same body. This European standard specifies: - the requirements of the materials and the design of ball valves, - the mechanical, hydraulic and acoustic requirements of ball valves, - the test methods to verify the requirements of ball valves, - the marking requirements of ball valves. Ball valves in combination with other valves should fulfil the same requirements.
