Foreword

This document (EN 15502-2-1:2012/prA1:2014) has been prepared by Technical Committee CEN/TC 109

“Central heating boilers using gaseous fuels”, the secretariat of which is held by NEN.

This document is currently submitted to the CEN Enquiry.

This document has been prepared under a mandate given to CEN by the European Commission and the

European Free Trade Association, and supports essential requirements of EU Directive.

1 Modifications to the Foreword

The flowing text is added in the foreword of EN 15502-2-1:2012 after the changes mentioned in EN 15502-2-

The requirements for type C and C boilers are now added to this draft standard.
(10) (11)
Explanatory Text:

Normally type C4 and type C8 boilers connected to common duct systems are functioning designed to

function with natural draught in the common flue duct system. If a common duct system, is applied at positive

pressure , new examination aspects are requested. For example: Boilers which are suitable for application in

such a duct system shall contain devices (valves) which prevents back flow of the combustion products of the

other boilers.

The boiler shall maintain its functionality and general safety level at positive and negative pressure.

If a system is a complete combined system including boilers, valves and the applied common duct system,

this system is examined according to the Gas Appliance Directive.

In the case C the appliances are evaluated on its own. The applied common duct system is designed by

(10)

another party, for example an installer, who takes the responsibility of the functioning of the complete system.

Starting points during the development of these requirements are:

— The approved technical content of the AHG-CO was drafted in a version of prEN 155502-2-1 dating from

October 2009. In this draft this technical content is added in the publication of EN 15502-2-1:2012.

— The definitions used for, C and type C boilers are the definition as drawn up by

(10) (11)

SFG-U/WG 1 for the use in the next version of CEN/TR 1749 (part of the these definitions are still draft

definitions).

— A non-return valve must prevent the back flow of combustion gas through boilers which are not running.

The non-return valve must be tested (Clause 5.102 and 8.104).

— When a tested open/close valve is used the boiler must be tested for resistance to condensate (safe

operation on short and long term). (Clause 8.104).
---------------------- Page: 6 ----------------------
SIST EN 15502-2-1:2013/oprA1:2014
EN 15502-2-1:2012/prA1:2014 (E)

— One of the most critical situations is the influence of the positive pressure on the good working of the gas-

air-ratio control/gasvalve at minimum heat input. In this case the gas-air-ratio control/gasvalve can be out

of its working range. As a result of this a significant amount of CO can be produced. This item is dealt with

in Clause 8.12.2.102 and 8.12.3.101.8 and 8.12.101.9."
2 Modifications to the Introduction
The last 2 paragraphs of the introduction of EN 15502-2-1:2012:

"After the DOW (3 years after publication of both EN 15502-1 and EN 15502-2-1 in the OJEU) the standards

specified in Annex AA, for the appliance types covered in EN 15502-2-1, are withdrawn.

Annex AA lists those existing appliance types for which CEN/TC109 standards are intended to be replaced by

EN 15502-2-2. The standards listed in Annex AA are to be used until EN 15502-2-2 specifies that the

standards are withdrawn for the appliance types indicated. "
Are replaced by the following text:

After the DOW (3 years after the DAV of both EN 15502-1 and EN 15502-2-1) the standards specified in

Annex AA, for the appliance types covered in EN 15502-2-1, are withdrawn.

Annex AA also lists those existing appliance types for which CEN/TC109 standards are intended to be

replaced by EN 15502-2-2. The standards (that are intended to be replaced by EN 15502-2-2) listed in Annex

AA are to be used until EN 15502-2-2 specifies that the standards are withdrawn for the appliance types

indicated.
3 Modifications to '1 Scope'

The following text is added after the 3 paragraph of the scope of EN 15502-2-1:2012:

"In this draft new text is added for the new types C and C , is included. In all 2 cases the definitions for

(10) (11)

these types are still draft definitions in the draft TR 1749 (date: Feburary 2013)."

The text under p) of the scope of EN 15502-2-1:2012:

"p) Appliances designed to become connected to a combined flue duct system that is designed to operate

under overpressure (for example Ca));"
Is replaced by the following text:

"p) Appliances designed to become connected to or incorporating to a combined flue duct system that is

designed to operate under overpressure (for example Ca));

The to be declared maximum pressure difference is the maximum value of the pressure differences between

the combustion products outlet and air inlet at the end of the fitting pieces where these are connected to the

common duct system.
Additional remarks to Safety aspects

When n-1 appliances are running, all applicable operational circumstances must be taken into account.

For example: n=4 and Δp must be declared.
max, saf(start)

In this situation there are 4 operational circumstances, namely or the boiler at the stock, or the first floor, or the

second floor or third floor is off or on minimum input.

The pressure differences between the combustion products inlet to and air outlet from the common duct

system must be determined for the appliance which is in minimum input or not running for all four operational

circumstances. The maximum of the four determined pressure differences is applicable.

When a system contains more than 5 appliances a simple approach can be the following. Make a calculation

with n appliances running on maximal load. Determine the boiler with the maximal pressure. Do the

calculation again with this boiler shut down or on minimum input.
Definition of functional operation
The functional operation is defined as the situation in which:

For combination boilers the maximum fraction of nominal heat input for domestic hot water production

(Q ) for the number of n appliances connected to the common duct system is:
2,5×n
f (DHW )= ; with a maximum of 1,0

— The number of appliances running and producing domestic hot water based on n appliances connected to

the common duct system are:
n(DHW )= f (DHW )×n round off upwards

— The number of appliances running and producing hot water for central heating based on n appliances

connected to the common duct system are:
n(CH )=n−n(DHW )

For central heating boilers without domestic hot water production no fraction is used.

For safety aspects the maximum applicable maximum nominal heat inputs (Q ) of each individual boiler is

n,max
taken into account.

NOTE The boilers running in central heating mode and domestic hot water mode are proportional divided over the

system. The lowest positioned boiler is always in domestic hot water mode.
