4 Technical requirements
4.1 General
4.1.1 Ductile iron pipes and fittings

Nominal sizes, thickness classes, lengths and coatings are specified in 4.1.1, 4.2.1, 4.2.3, 4.4 and 4.5 respectively.

When, by agreement between manufacturer and purchaser, pipes and fittings with different wall thickness classes,

lengths and/or coatings and other types of fittings than those given in 8.3 and 8.4, are supplied with reference to

this standard, they shall comply with all the other requirements of this standard.

NOTE 1 Other types of fittings include angle branches, tees and tapers with other combinations DN x dn, draining tees, …

The standardized nominal sizes DN of pipes and fittings are as follows: 40, 50, 60, 65, 80, 100, 125, 150, 200, 250,

300, 350, 400, 450, 500, 600, 700, 800, 900, 1 000, 1 100, 1 200, 1 400, 1 500, 1 600, 1 800, 2 000.

NOTE 2 Annexes B and C give respectively the longitudinal bending resistance and the diametral stiffness of ductile iron

pipes.
---------------------- Page: 10 ----------------------
SIST EN 545:2002
EN 545:2002 (E)

NOTE 3 When installed and operated under the conditions for which they are designed (see annexes D, E and G), ductile

iron pipes, fittings, accessories and their joints maintain all their functional characteristics over their operating life, due to the

constant material properties, to the stability of their cross section and to their design with high safety factors.

4.1.2 Surface condition and repair

Pipes, fittings and accessories shall be free from defects and surface imperfections which can lead to non-

compliance with clause 4 and clause 5.

When necessary, pipes and fittings may be repaired, for example by welding, in order to remove surface

imperfections and localized defects which do not extend through the entire wall thickness, provided that :

 the repairs are carried out according to the manufacturer’s written procedure;

 the repaired pipes and fittings comply with all the requirements of clause 4 and clause 5.

4.1.3 Types of joints and interconnection
4.1.3.1 General

Rubber gasket materials shall comply with the requirements of EN 681-1, type WA. When materials other than

rubber are necessary (e.g. for flanged joints), they shall comply with the appropriate European Standard or, where

no European Standard exists, the appropriate International Standard.
4.1.3.2 Flanged joints

Flanges shall be constructed in such a way that they can be attached to flanges whose dimensions and tolerances

comply with EN 1092-2. This ensures interconnection between all flanged components (pipes, fittings, valves,....) of

the same PN and DN and adequate joint performance.

Bolts and nuts shall comply as a minimum with the requirements of EN ISO 4016:2000 and EN ISO 4034:2000,

grade 4.6. When applicable, washers shall comply with EN ISO 7091.

Although it does not affect interconnection, the manufacturer shall state in his catalogues whether his products are

normally delivered with fixed flanges or adjustable flanges.
NOTE Flange gaskets can be one of those given in EN 1514.
4.1.3.3 Flexible joints

Pipes and fittings with flexible joints shall comply with 4.2.2.1 for their spigot external diameter DE and their

tolerances. This offers the possibility of interconnection between components equipped with different types of

flexible joints. In addition, each type of flexible joint shall be designed to fulfil the performance requirements of

clause 5.

NOTE 1 For interconnection with certain types of joints operating within a different tolerance range on DE, the

manufacturer’s guidance should be followed as to the means of ensuring adequate joint performance at high pressures (e.g.

measurement and selection of external diameter).

NOTE 2 For interconnection with existing pipelines which can have external diameters not in compliance with 4.2.2.1, the

manufacturer’s guidance should be followed as to the appropriate means of interconnection (e.g. adaptors).

4.1.4 Materials in contact with water intended for human consumption

Ductile iron pipes, fittings and their joints include several materials given in this standard. When used under the

conditions for which they are designed, in permanent or in temporary contact with water intended for human

consumption, ductile iron pipes, fittings and their joints shall not change the quality of that water to such an extent

that it fails to comply with the requirements of national regulations.
---------------------- Page: 11 ----------------------
SIST EN 545:2002
EN 545:2002 (E)

For this purpose, reference shall be made to the relevant national regulations and standards, transposing EN

standards when available, dealing with the influence of materials on water quality and to the requirements for

external systems and components as given in EN 805.

NOTE A European Acceptance Scheme (EAS) is in course of development in relation to the Construction Products

Directive and to the Drinking Water Directive ; its requirements will be introduced in this standard when completed.

4.2 Dimensional requirements
4.2.1 Wall thickness
4.2.1.1 General

The thickness shall be calculated either by the K class formula for pipes and fittings (see 4.2.1.2) or defined

according to 4.2.1.3 for Class 40 pipes of DN 40 to DN 400.

For pipes, the standardized thickness classes are given in clause 8.1. Other thicknesses are possible for pipes by

agreement between manufacturer and purchaser.

For fittings, the thickness e given in tables and on Figures of 8.3 and 8.4 is the nominal thickness corresponding to

the main part of the body. The actual thickness at any particular point may be increased to meet localized high

stresses depending on the shape of the casting (e.g. at internal radius of bends, at the branch-body junction of

tees,...).
Annex A gives the maximum values of PFA, PMA and PEA.
4.2.1.2 K classes for pipes and fittings

The nominal iron wall thickness of pipes and fittings is given as a function of the nominal size, DN, by the following

formula, with a minimum of 6 mm for pipes and 7 mm for fittings:
e = K(0,5 + 0,001 DN)
where
e is the nominal wall thickness, in millimetres ;
DN is the nominal size ;

K is a coefficient used for the determination of the thickness. It is selected from a series of whole numbers :....

8, 9, 10, 11, 12.....
4.2.1.3 Class 40 for pipes

The nominal iron wall thickness of pipes DN 40 to DN 400 is given as a function of the nominal size, DN, in

Table 15.
4.2.1.4 Tolerance

The tolerance on the nominal wall thickness of pipes and fittings shall be as given in Table 1. The measurement of

the wall thickness shall be in accordance with 6.1.1.

The lower limit only is given, so as to ensure sufficient resistance to internal pressure.

4.2.2 Diameter
4.2.2.1 External diameter

8.1 specifies the values of the external diameter DE of the coated spigot ends of pipes and fittings and their

maximum allowable tolerances, when measured using a circumferential tape in accordance with 6.1.2. These

tolerances apply to the spigot ends of all thickness classes of pipes and fittings.

NOTE 1 Certain types of flexible joints operate within a different range of tolerance (see 4.1.3.3).

For DN

300, the external diameter of the pipe barrel measured with a circumferential tape shall be such as to

allow the assembly of the joint over at least two thirds of the pipe length from the spigot end when the pipe needs

to be cut on site.

For DN > 300, the same applies to a percentage of the pipes, defined by agreement between manufacturer and

purchaser. Such pipes shall be marked.

In addition, the ovality (see 3.26) of the spigot end of pipes and fittings shall :

 remain within the tolerance on DE (see Table 15) for DN 40 to DN 200 ;
 not exceed 1 % for DN 250 to DN 600 or 2 % for DN > 600.

NOTE 2 The manufacturer’s guidance should be followed as to the necessity and means of ovality correction ; certain types

of flexible joints can accept the maximum ovality without a need for spigot re-rounding prior to jointing.

4.2.2.2 Internal diameter

The nominal values of the internal diameter of centrifugally cast pipes, expressed in millimetres, are equal to the

numbers indicating their nominal size, DN, and the tolerances shall be as given in Table 2 which applies to lined

pipes.

These tolerances apply to pipe thickness classes up to K10 and to cement mortar lining thicknesses as given in

Table 8. Where greater iron and/or cement mortar lining thicknesses are agreed between manufacturer and

purchaser, these tolerances do not apply.

NOTE Due to the manufacturing process of ductile iron pipes and their internal linings, internal diameters with the lower

limit deviation will only appear locally along the pipe length.

Compliance shall be demonstrated according to 6.1.3 or by calculation from the measurements taken for pipe

external diameter, iron wall thickness and lining thickness.
