Figure 2 — Graphic symbol 7 Physico-chemical characteristics 7.1 Materials The materials and the coatings used, liable to come normally or accidentally in contact with potable water, shall satisfy the EU regulations concerning water quality. The materials and the coatings shall be: a) corrosion resistant; b) prone to the least scaling possible; c) in conformity with the European Standards and regulations; d) compatible among themselves and: SIST EN 13434:2006
EN 13434:2006 (E) 9 1) with the water supply; 2) with the fluids or matter liable to come into contact with them; 3) with the products normally used for disinfection of the water distribution system: potassium perman-ganate and sodium hypochlorite. 7.2 Nature of the materials a) The choice of materials is left to the discretion of the manufacturer. Copper-zinc alloys containing more than 10 % zinc are subject to dezincification when submitted to water capable of dezincification. In the countries where the use of products made of dezincification resistant materials is required, the products have to guarantee a dezincification depth less than 200 µm in any direction, they have to be tested in accordance with EN ISO 6509 and have to be marked in compliance with the indications in Clause 11; NOTE
This European Standard does not cover non-metallic materials for bodies. b) neither the materials nor the coatings used shall, by normal or accidental contact with drinking water, cause any risk of affecting or modifying the water up to a temperature of 90 °C. The suitability of the water for human consumption is defined by national regulations; c) the manufacturer shall state in his technical and sales literature the nature of the materials and the coat-ings selected; d) the materials, and in particular copper alloys, for which recommendations or International Standard exists shall comply with the relevant recommendations or International Standards. 8 Design 8.1 General a) The internal components of the device shall be accessible for inspection, repair or replacement. By design, the components shall be able to be refitted at their initial place, without ambiguity (impossibility of reversal, interchange of obturators, diaphragms, springs, .). A visible mark is not sufficient. b) Additional control devices (electrical, pneumatic etc.) shall not influence the safety function. c) The settings of the springs shall be fixed and not adjustable. d) The device shall comprise one pressure tapping and a visible indication on the device when the obturator is in the drain position. The pressure tapping is located on the inlet of the device. e) Only the pressure of the water of the supply system at the inlet can operate the control of the internal components of the device. 8.2 Relief valve At 0-flow or p1 ≤ 14 kPa (0,14 bar), the relief valve is in drain position. There shall be a visible indication on the device when the obturator is in the drain position. The relief valve is controlled by a 3-way differential pressure valve with on/off function. In all the installation positions indicated by the manufacturer, any water retention shall not be possible within the intermediate zone. SIST EN 13434:2006
EN 13434:2006 (E) 10 The cross-section of the passage orifices and of the pilot tube for operation of the relief device shall be equal to or greater than an area of 12,5 mm2, except with DN < 15 for control drillings with a length of less than 20 mm which shall have a minimum internal diameter of 2 mm. In case of un-machined cross-sections the smallest dimension should be ≥ 4 mm. The outside pilot tube shall be made so as not to be vulnerable to any permanent deformation or rupture caused by external loading. The cross-sections of the passage orifice for the impulse pipe of devices DN < 15 shall be greater than an area of 3,14 mm2 (D min > 2 mm). An air break to drain shall exist between any waste drain and any means of collecting the discharged water (floor, tundish, curb, sink). The device with an air break to drain fitted shall evacuate the full relief flow rate as defined in 9.7.4 without spilling to the outside. The air break to drain shall meet the dimensional requirements as specified in EN 1717. This air break to drain shall be: either directly incorporated into the device; or factory fitted; or supplied with the device. In the latter case, the relief orifice of the device shall permit, neither the fitting of a standardized threaded pipe, nor the connection of a standardized pipe or shape, be it by adhesive, welding or interlocking. 8.3 Disconnection distance In drain position the obturator shall close the opening from upstream zone to the intermediate zone. The dis-connection distance shall be at least 20 mm. The drain port shall be closed, before flow condition is achieved. The passage orifice of the drain port shall be at least equal to the minimum cross-section of the outlet water way (downstream). 9 Characteristics and tests 9.1 General Performance tests shall be carried out on the device as installed in accordance with the manufacturer’s tech-nical documents. If not specified all tests shall be performed with water at an ambient temperature. 9.2 General tolerances 9.2.1 Tolerance on set values In the absence of any particular specifications given in this European Standard: SIST EN 13434:2006
