This European Standard specifies materials and test requirements for tube connections with press fittings made of stainless steel in the size range 12 mm to 108 mm.
Products covered by this European Standard are intended to be used in:
- hot or cold or combined hot and cold water systems for potable water according to EN 806 (all parts) and non-potable water;
- heating systems according to EN 12828 and cooling systems;
- natural gas and liquefied petroleum gas systems with a maximum operating pressure less than or equal to 5 bar according to EN 1775.
Products complying with this European Standard may be used for the transport of water for human consumption if they comply with the relevant national, regional or local regulatory provisions applicable in the place of use.
Permissible operating temperatures and maximum operating pressures are also established.
Fittings may comprise a combination of end types, specified in this standard or other standards, providing they are suitable for the fluid /gas being conveyed.
The standard establishes a designation tube system with press end joints made with the components fitting and, tube pressed with a pressing tool.
This standard is applicable to press fittings for joining stainless steel tubes according to EN 10312 and to EN 10217-7.
