This European Standard applies to submersible pump assemblies intended for use with dispensers installed at petrol filling stations and used to dispense liquid fuels in accordance with EN 228 and EN 590 into tanks of motor vehicles, light aircrafts, boats and portable containers. The submersible pump assemblies are intended for use and storage at ambient temperatures between –20 °C and +40 °C.
Additional measures can be required for use and storage at temperatures outside this range and are subject to negotiation between the manufacturer and purchaser.
This European Standard specifies requirements for equipment with a maximum working pressure not exceeding 350 kPa (3,5 bar), power consumption not exceeding 7 KW and a maximum power supply voltage of 500 V.
This European Standard specifies requirements for submersible pump assemblies of classes IIA T3 (explosion group IIA and temperature class T3) and IIB T4 (explosion group IIB and temperature class T4) using liquid fuels.
This European Standard deals with all significant hazards, hazardous situations and events relevant to submersible pump assemblies, when they are used as intended and under conditions of misuse which are reasonably foreseeable by the manufacturer (see Clause 4).
This European Standard specifies safety requirements for design, installation, commissioning, use and maintenance.
Noise is not considered a significant hazard for the equipment in the scope of this European Standard.
This European Standard does not cover requirements for mobile equipment.
NOTE 1 For other fuels than those in accordance with EN 228 and EN 590 a manufacturer should consider the need for extra measures (dealing with possible additional or different hazards).
NOTE 2 This European Standard does not include any requirements for metering performance such as may be specified for the EU under the Measuring Instruments Directive nor those specified under the Electromagnetic Compatibility Directive.
