Specification for dedicated liquefied petroleum gas appliances - Independent stoves, including those incorporating a grill for outdoor use

This document specifies constructional and performance characteristics, safety specifications and rational use of energy, relevant test methods and marking of independent stoves, side burners, covered burners, open burners, griddles, radiant grills, burning liquefied petroleum gas, referred to in the body of the text as "appliances".
This document covers appliances, used outdoors and operating with the gases of the third family according to EN 437:2018.
Appliances used in leisure vehicles and boats are outside the field of application of this standard.
Independent stove burners, whose nominal heat input is below 1,16 kW, griddles and radiant grills, are not subject to any special requirement concerning the rational use of energy due to their low rate and their use for short periods of time.
This document does not state all requirements for appliances of other nature incorporating a stove (for example barbecues are not covered by this standard but a side burner of a barbecue is covered by this standard).
This document does not cover regulators that are used with those appliances.

Festlegungen für Flüssiggasgeräte - Flüssiggasbetriebene Kochgeräte einschließlich solcher mit Grillteilen zur Verwendung im Freien

Dieses Dokument legt Konstruktions- und Leistungsmerkmale, Sicherheitsanforderungen und rationelle Energienutzung sowie maßgebende Prüfverfahren und die Kennzeichnung von flüssiggasbetriebenen Kochgeräten, Seitenbrennern, verdeckten Brennern, offenen Brennern, Kontaktgrills, Strahlungsgrills, im Haupttext als „Geräte“ bezeichnet, fest.
Dieses Dokument gilt für Geräte zur Verwendung im Freien, betrieben mit den Gasen der dritten Familie nach EN 437:2018.
Geräte zum Einsatz in Freizeitfahrzeugen und Booten fallen nicht in den Anwendungsbereich dieser Norm.
Brenner mit einer Nennwärmebelastung unter 1,16 kW, Kontaktgrills und Strahlungsgrills unterliegen aufgrund ihrer geringen Leistung und der kurzen Betriebszeiten keinen besonderen Anforderungen an die rationelle Energienutzung.
Dieses Dokument beinhaltet nicht alle Anforderungen an Geräte anderer Art mit integrierter Kochfläche (zum Beispiel behandelt diese Norm keine Grillgeräte, ein Seitenbrenner eines Grillgeräts hingegen wird von dieser Norm abgedeckt).
Dieses Dokument gilt nicht für Regelgeräte, die mit diesen Geräten verwendeten werden

Spécifications pour les appareils fonctionnant exclusivement aux gaz de pétrole liquéfiés - Réchauds indépendants, équipés ou non d'un grilloir, utilisés en plein air

La présente norme a pour but de définir les caractéristiques de construction et de fonctionnement, les spécifications de sécurité et l'utilisation rationnelle de l'énergie, les méthodes d'essai afférentes ainsi que le marquage des réchauds indépendants, brûleurs latéraux, brûleurs couverts, brûleurs découverts, grilloirs par contact, grilloirs par rayonnement, fonctionnant aux gaz de pétrole liquéfiés, désignés dans l'ensemble du texte par « appareils ».
La présente norme couvre les appareils utilisés en plein air et fonctionnant avec les gaz de la 3ème famille selon l’EN 437 :2018.
Les appareils utilisés dans les véhicules de loisirs et les bateaux sont exclus du domaine d'application de la présente norme.
Les brûleurs de réchauds indépendants dont le débit calorifique nominal est inférieur à 1,16 kW, de même que les grilloirs et les grills radiants, compte tenu de leur faible puissance et de leur utilisation sur de courtes durées, ne font l'objet d'aucune exigence particulière en matière d'utilisation rationnelle de l'énergie.
La présente Norme européenne ne définit pas l'ensemble des exigences applicables aux équipements intégrés d'une autre nature (par exemple, les barbecues ne sont pas couverts par cette norme mais un brûleur latéral d’un barbecue est couvert par cette norme).
La présente norme ne couvre pas les détendeurs utilisés avec ces appareils.

Specifikacija za plinske aparate na utekočinjeni naftni plin - Prostostoječi kuhalniki, vključno z žarom za zunanjo uporabo

Ta standard določa konstrukcijske značilnosti in značilnosti delovanja, varnostne specifikacije in racionalno uporabo energije, pomembne preskusne metode in označevanje prostostoječih štedilnikov, stranskih gorilnikov, pokritih gorilnikov, odprtih gorilnikov, žarov s ploščo, žarov s sevanjem na utekočinjeni naftni plin, ki so v telesu besedila označeni z besedo »aparati«.
Ta evropski standard zajema pripomočke, ki se uporabljajo na prostem in delujejo na pline, navedene v točki 4.1, ter skladno s kategorijami, določenimi v točki 4.2.
Ta standard se uporablja za te aparate in njihove funkcionalne dele, ne glede na to, ali so ti deli prostostoječi ali vgrajeni v sestav.
Aparati na plin tretje družine pri tlaku, ki presega tlak iz točke 4.2, so zunaj področja uporabe tega standarda.
Aparati, ki se uporabljajo v vozilih za prosti čas in čolnih, so zunaj področja uporabe aparatov tega standarda.
Za gorilnike na prostostoječih štedilnikih, ki imajo nazivno toplotno moč pod 1,16 kW, in žare ne veljajo nobene posebne zahteve glede racionalne uporabe energije zaradi njihove nizke stopnje in kratkotrajne uporabe.
V tem evropskem standardu niso navedene vse veljavne zahteve za sestavno opremo druge narave (na primer žari, zajeti v standardu EN 498).
Ta standard ne zajema regulatorjev, ki se morajo uporabljati s temi aparati, in regulatorjev, ki jih zajema standard EN 16129.

European foreword

This document (EN 484:2019) has been prepared by Technical Committee CEN/TC 181 “Appliances

and leisure vehicle installations using liquefied petroleum gas and appliances using natural gas for

outdoor use”, the secretariat of which is held by AFNOR.

This European Standard shall be given the status of a national standard, either by publication of an

identical text or by endorsement, at the latest by October 2019, and conflicting national standards

shall be withdrawn at the latest by October 2019.

Attention is drawn to the possibility that some of the elements of this document may be the subject of

patent rights. CEN shall not be held responsible for identifying any or all such patent rights.

This document supersedes EN 484:1997.
The following main technical changes have been made compared to EN 484:1997:

— inconsistencies raised by the European Commission against gas appliance Regulation have been

addressed;

— differences on test pressures between French and English versions have been addressed;

— the scope has been specified to indicate that regulators are not covered by this standard;

— the wording “hotplate” (not adapted for appliances covered by EN 484) has been replaced by

“stove”;

— the definition 3.9 “auxiliary equipment” has been replaced by “fitting” in the sense of the gas

appliance Directive;
— compliance to EN 1106 or EN 126 for the taps has been added;

— paragraphs 7.2.X regarding to the type of examination (visual and/or mechanical) have been

reworded;

— a 300 mm diameter pan and the corresponding sampling of product of combustion has been

added.

According to the CEN-CENELEC Internal Regulations, the national standards organisations of the

following countries are bound to implement this European Standard: Austria, Belgium, Bulgaria,

Croatia, Cyprus, Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia,

France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Iceland, Ireland, Italy, Latvia, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Malta,

Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Serbia, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden,

Switzerland, Turkey and the United Kingdom.

1 Scope

This document specifies constructional and performance characteristics, safety specifications and

rational use of energy, relevant test methods and marking of independent stoves, side burners,

covered burners, open burners, griddles, radiant grills, burning liquefied petroleum gas, referred to in

the body of the text as “appliances”.

This document covers appliances, used outdoors and operating with the gases of the third family

according to EN 437:2018.

Appliances used in leisure vehicles and boats are outside the field of application of this standard.

Independent stove burners, whose nominal heat input is below 1,16 kW, griddles and radiant grills,

are not subject to any special requirement concerning the rational use of energy due to their low rate

and their use for short periods of time.

This document does not state all requirements for appliances of other nature incorporating a stove

(for example barbecues are not covered by this standard but a side burner of a barbecue is covered by

this standard).
This document does not cover regulators that are used with those appliances.
