by publication of an identical text or by endorsement, at the latest by January 2007, and conflicting national

standards shall be withdrawn at the latest by January 2007.

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(s).

For relationship with EU Directive(s), see informative annex ZA, which is an integral part of this document.

With this amendment, the requirements and test methods for low temperature boilers and for standard boilers

possibly producing condensate in certain circumstances are introduced in EN 656:1999.

5.3.1 General
At the end of the clause, add the following:

If there is a risk of condensation in the combustion products circuit, all parts of the heat exchanger(s) and other

parts of the boiler likely to come into contact with condensate shall be constructed of sufficiently corrosion

resistant materials or materials protected by a suitable coating in order to ensure a reasonable life for a boiler

that is installed, used and maintained in accordance with the manufacturer’s instructions.

Surfaces in contact with condensate (except purpose provided drains, water traps and siphons) shall be

designed to prevent condensate retention.
5.4.1 General
Replace the second and third paragraphs with the following:

For standard boilers that are designed not to give rise to condensation, there shall be no indication of

condensation at the operating temperatures provided by the controls.

Low-temperature boilers are considered to be designed to give rise to condensation.

If condensation is produced at start-up, this shall not:
 affect the operational safety;
 drop outside the appliance.
Insert new clauses as follows:
5.8.5 Removal of condensate for low temperature boilers

For low temperature boilers a condensate discharge shall be provided if the condensate:

 impairs safety or correct operation;
 results in spillage from the appliance;
 causes deterioration of materials.

A pipe or pipes shall be used to discharge condensate when this is necessary. The internal diameter of the

outside connection of the condensate discharge system shall be at least 13 mm.

The disposal system, forming part of the boiler or supplied with the boiler, shall be such that:

 it can be easily inspected and cleaned in accordance with the manufacturer’s instructions;

 it cannot transmit combustion products into the room where the boiler is installed; this requirement is

satisfied if the disposal system incorporates a water trap;

 a water trap has a seal of at least 25 mm at the maximum pressure in the combustion chamber at the

maximum flue length specified by the manufacturer.

5.16 Chemical composition of the condensate for low-temperature boilers

The manufacturer shall communicate the probable chemical composition of the condensate (pH, heavy metals,

etc.) if the composition is required by national regulations.

Insert a new clause as follows:
6.5.9 Condensate discharge blockage

Under the test conditions of clause 7.5.9, the formation of condensate shall not impair the correct operation of

the boiler.

By choice of the manufacturer, the boiler shall meet one of the following requirements:

a) when the condensate discharge is blocked, the gas supply shall be shut off before the CO concentration

exceeds 0,20 %; or

b) when the condensate discharge is blocked, causing a restriction in the flow of combustion products or air for

combustion, resulting in a CO concentration equal to or greater than 0,10 % at equilibrium, restart shall not

be possible from cold.
In either case, there shall be no spillage of condensate from the boiler.
6.7.1 Useful efficiency at the nominal heat input
Replace this clause by the following text:

Under the test conditions of 7.7.1 the useful efficiency at the nominal heat input shall be in accordance with

Table 10.

Under the test conditions of 7.7.2, the useful efficiency for a load corresponding to 30 % of the nominal heat

input shall be in accordance with Table 11.

P is the nominal output expressed in kilowatts (kW).
6.8 Non-condensation in the flue
Replace this clause with the following text:
6.8 Criteria for condensation in the flue for standard boilers

For standard boilers it is determined whether condensation occurs in the flue. Condensation may occur when

one of the following criteria, depending on the manufacturer’s choice is met:
a) flue losses are less than 8 % under the test condition of 7.8.1;

b) temperature of the combustion products is less than 80 °C under the test conditions of 7.8.2.

6.9.1 General
At the end of the clause, add the following:

Corrosion resistant coatings shall show no sign of damage after the pressure tests described in 7.9.

Add a new clause as follows:
6.12 Condensation in a standard boiler

If condensation occurs in the flue of a standard boiler, according to one of the criteria of 6.8, additional tests are

carried out to determine whether condensation also occurs in the boiler.

Under the test conditions of 7.12, it is checked whether formation of condensate occurs in the boiler.

If there is condensation in the boiler, the appropriate requirements for low-temperature boilers in 5.3.1, 5.8.5,

5.16, 6.5.9, 6.9.1, 7.5.9, and 8.2.1 shall be met.
