Over deze norm
This European Standard is applicable to hand and automatically fired residential independent boilers having nominal heat outputs up to 50 kW, the primary function of which is to provide hot water for central heating and/or domestic use, and which are designed for use only with open vented systems at a working pressure not exceeding 2 bar. In addition to their primary function of providing hot water these appliances also provide space heating to the place of installation. This European Standard specifies requirements relating to the design, manufacture, construction, safety and performance (efficiency and emission) of residential independent boilers fired by solid fuel (hereafter referred to as “appliance(s)”) and provides instructions for them. Furthermore, it also gives provisions for evaluation of conformity (i.e. initial type testing (ITT) and factory production control (FPC) and marking of these products. These appliances may burn either solid mineral fuels, peat briquettes or natural or manufactured wood logs or be multi-fuel in accordance with the appliance manufacturer’s instructions. This standard is not applicable to independent boilers for hot water only production and having heat outputs of less than 5 kW. This standard is also not applicable to the design and construction of automatic stoking devices.
