Sanitary tapware - Thermostatic mixing valves (PN 10) - General technical specification

This European Standard specifies general construction, performance and material requirements for PN 10 thermostatic mixing valves (TMV) and includes test methods for the verification of mixed water temperature performance at the point of use below 45 °C. This does not exclude the selection of higher temperatures where available. When these devices are used to provide anti-scald protection for children, elderly and disabled persons the mixed water temperature needs to be set at a suitable bathing temperature (body temperature approximately 38 °C) as children are at risk to scalding at lower temperatures than adults. This does not obviate the need for supervision of young children during bathing.
It applies to valves intended for use on sanitary appliances in kitchens, washrooms (incl. all rooms with sanitary tapware, e.g. toilets and cloakrooms) and bath rooms operating under the conditions specified in Table 1.
This standard allows TMVs to supply a single outlet or a small number of outlets in a "domestic" application (e.g. one valve controlling a shower, bath, basin and/or bidet), excluding valves specifically designed for supplying a large number of outlets (i.e. for institutional use).
The tests described are type tests (laboratory tests) and not quality control tests carried out during manufacture.
Table 1 - Conditions of use

Sanitärarmaturen - Thermostatische Mischer (PN 10) - Allgemeine technische Spezifikation

Diese Europäische Norm legt allgemeine Anforderungen an Konstruktion (Ausführung), Verhalten (Funktion) und an Werkstoffe für thermostatische Mischer, PN 10, (Mischer) für den Hochdruckbereich fest und sie enthält Prüfverfahren für die Verifizierung des Verhaltens der Mischwassertemperatur an der Entnahmestelle unter 45 °C. Das schließt die Auswahl höherer Temperaturen nicht aus, sofern sie verfügbar sind. Werden diese Vorrichtungen für die Bereitstellung des Verbrühungsschutzes für Kinder, ältere und behinderte Personen eingesetzt, muss die Mischwassertemperatur auf eine geeignete Badetemperatur (Körpertemperatur 38 °C) eingestellt werden, da bei Kindern die Gefahr besteht, sich bereits bei niedrigeren Temperaturen als Erwachsene zu verbrühen. Das macht jedoch nicht die Beaufsichtigung von Kleinkindern während des Badens überflüssig.
Diese Norm gilt für thermostatische Mischer für die Ausrüstung von Sanitärausstattungsgegenständen, die in Küchen, Waschräumen (einschließlich aller Räume mit Sanitärarmaturen, z. B. Toiletten und Umkleiden) und Bädern installiert werden, die unter den in Tabelle 1 festgelegten Bedingungen eingesetzt werden.
Die vorliegende Norm behandelt die Verwendung von thermostatischen Mischern, die in Anlagen mit nur einer oder wenigen Entnahmestellen im häuslichen Bereich verwendet werden (z. B. ein Mischer für Brause, Badewanne, Waschbecken und/oder Sitzwaschbecken). Ausgeschlossen sind jedoch thermostatische Mischer, die speziell für die Versorgung einer großen Anzahl von Entnahmestellen ausgelegt sind (d. h. für die Verwendung in Reihenwaschanlagen).
Die beschriebenen Prüfungen sind als Typprüfungen (Laborprüfungen) zu verstehen und nicht als Prüfungen zur Qualitätskontrolle während der Herstellung vorgesehen.
Tabelle 1 - Anwendungsbedingungen

Robinetterie sanitaire - Mitigeurs thermostatiques (PN 10) - Spécifications techniques générales

La présente Norme européenne spécifie des exigences générales relatives à la construction, aux performances et aux matériaux applicables aux mitigeurs thermostatiques PN 10 et comprend des méthodes d’essai permettant de vérifier les performances en température d’eau mitigée au point d’utilisation inférieur à 45 °C. Ces méthodes n’excluent pas la sélection de températures supérieures, si elles sont disponibles. Lorsque ces dispositifs sont utilisés pour assurer une protection contre les brûlures pour les enfants, les personnes âgées et les personnes présentant un handicap, la température de l’eau mitigée doit être réglée à une température de baignade appropriée (température du corps environ 38 °C), car les enfants sont exposés à un risque de brûlure à des températures plus basses que les adultes. Cela ne dispense pas de surveiller les enfants en bas âge pendant le bain.
La présente norme s’applique aux mitigeurs destinés à l’équipement des appareils sanitaires installés dans les cuisines, les locaux d’hygiène corporelle (y compris tous les locaux équipés de robinetteries sanitaires, par exemple les toilettes et les vestiaires) et les salles de bains, et utilisés dans les conditions spécifiées dans le Tableau 1.
La présente norme traite des mitigeurs thermostatiques avec une seule sortie ou un petit nombre de points de puisage, qui sont destinés à une utilisation « domestique » (par exemple, un mitigeur alimentant une douche, une baignoire, un lavabo et/ou un bidet). Sont exclus les mitigeurs spécialement conçus pour alimenter un grand nombre de sorties (par exemple, pour une utilisation dans une collectivité).
Les essais décrits ci-après sont des essais de type (essais en laboratoire) et non des essais de contrôle qualité effectués en cours de fabrication.
Tableau 1 - Conditions d’utilisation

Sanitarne armature - Termostatska mešalna armatura (PN 10) - Splošne tehnične zahteve

Ta evropski standard določa splošne konstrukcijske, zmogljivostne in materialne zahteve za termostatske mešalne ventile (TMV) PN 10 in vključuje preskusne metode za preverjanje temperaturnega delovanja mešane vode na mestu uporabe pod 45 °C. To ne izključuje izbire višjih temperatur, če so na voljo. Kadar se te naprave uporabljajo za zaščito otrok, starejših in invalidov pred opeklinami je treba temperaturo mešane vode nastaviti na primerno temperaturo za kopanje (temperatura telesa — 38 °C), saj dobijo otroci opekline pri nižjih temperaturah kot odrasli. To ne pomeni, da ni potrebe po nadzoru majhnih otrok med kopanjem.
Uporablja se za ventile, namenjene za uporabo na sanitarnih napravah v kuhinjah, umivalnicah (vključno z vsemi prostori s sanitarno armaturo, npr. stranišča in garderobe) in kopalnicami, ki delujejo v skladu s pogoji iz razpredelnice 1.
Ta standard omogoča TMV-jem, da napajajo eno samo vtičnico ali majhno število vtičnic v »domači« uporabi (npr. en ventil za nadzor tuša, kopalne kadi, umivalnika, bideja), razen ventilov, posebej zasnovanih za napajanje velikega števila vtičnic (tj. za institucionalno uporabo).
Opisani preskusi so tipski preskusi (laboratorijski preskusi) in ne kontrolni preskusi kakovosti, opravljeni med proizvodnjo.

This document (prEN 1111:2015) has been prepared by Technical Committee CEN/TC 164 “Water supply”,
the secretariat of which is held by AFNOR.
This document is currently submitted to the CEN Enquiry.
This document will supersede EN 1111:1998.
The main technical changes compared to the previous version are the following:
a) the introduction of Clause 9 on backflow protection;
b) the introduction of Clause 10 on test sequence;
c) the introduction of Clause 12 on performance;
d) the update of chapters on pressure resistance, torsional resistance and mechanical resistance;
e) new Annexes A, B, C and D.

1 Scope
This European Standard specifies general construction, performance and material requirements for PN 10
thermostatic mixing valves (TMV) and includes test methods for the verification of mixed water temperature
performance at the point of use below 45 °C. This does not exclude the selection of higher temperatures
where available. When these devices are used to provide anti-scald protection for children, elderly and
disabled persons the mixed water temperature needs to be set at a suitable bathing temperature (body
temperature – 38 °C) as children are at risk to scalding at lower temperatures than adults. This does not
obviate the need for supervision of young children during bathing.
It applies to valves intended for use on sanitary appliances in kitchens, washrooms (incl. all rooms with
sanitary tapware, e.g. toilets and cloakrooms) and bath rooms operating under the conditions specified in
Table 1.
This standard allows TMVs to supply a single outlet or a small number of out
