Language in which you want to receive the document.


This document specifies requirements, design and test methods for factory made thermally insulated bonded valve assemblies for directly buried district cooling distribution systems, comprising a steel valve from DN 15 to DN 1200, rigid polyurethane foam insulation and a casing of polyethylene.
The valve assembly can also include the following additional elements: measuring wires, spacers and diffusion barriers.
This document applies only to insulated valve assemblies, for continuous operation with water at various temperatures (1 to 30) °C and a maximum operation pressure of 25 bar.
The design is based on an expected service life with continuous operation of a minimum 50 years.
NOTE An expected service life of 50 years presupposes that treated water is used.
