Over deze norm
This part of EN 1555 specifies requirements of fitness for purpose of the polyethylene (PE) piping system in the field of the supply of gaseous fuels. It specifies the definitions of electrofusion, butt fusion and mechanical joints. It also specifies the method of preparation of test piece joints, relating to installation recommendations given in EN 12007-2:2000  and the tests to be carried out on these joints for assessing the fitness for purpose of the system under normal and extreme conditions. It also specifies the test parameters for the test methods referred to in this standard. In conjunction with the other parts of EN 1555 (see Foreword) it is applicable to PE pipes, fittings, valves, their joints and to joints with components of other materials intended to be used under the following conditions: a) a maximum operating pressure, MOP, up to and including 10 bar 1) ; b) an operating temperature of 20 °C as reference temperature. EN 1555 covers a range of maximum operating pressures and gives requirements concerning colours and additives.
