This document specifies the requirements for the design, performance and testing of fittings made of malleable cast iron (see also Clause 5 Materials) with compression ends for steel pipes.
This document applies to steel piping systems for different application fields, such as gas supply, distribution and supply of water for general purposes and for human consumption, irrigation, firefighting, aqueous liquids, pressurized air and gaseous fuel systems.
NOTE Products complying with this document used for drinking water applications are expected to comply with the relevant national, regional or local regulatory provisions applicable in the place of use. Due to the variety and dynamic of the requirements, it is advisable to check the compliance.
This document contains requirements and tests relating to compression fittings which can be connected to smooth walled steel pipes. The fittings can also incorporate other types of connection, such as threaded ends in conformance with EN 10226 1, flanged ends, compression ends for connection for pipes other than steel, etc., and can also take on various structural shapes, such as, straight piece, elbow or T-piece, etc. Their range of sizes covers nominal sizes DN 10 to DN 100 (size ⅜ to 4).
