Test methods
B.1 Electrical resistance test

To determine the electrical resistance through the body of the nozzle, carry out the following procedure.

— Measure between the nozzle input and the spout according to the test procedure as described in

EN 60204-1:2018, 18.3 using a supply voltage of 500 V d.c.
— Measure and record the resistance in ohms.
— Repeat for four other points on the spout.
B.2 Pressure test

To determine whether the pressurized compartments of the nozzle body withstand a pressure of 1,4 MPa

(14 bar), carry out the following procedure.
+0,01 +01,

— Subject the nozzle body, up to the valve seat, to a liquid pressure of ( 1, 40 ) MPa [( 14,0 ) bar],

0 0
maintained for ( 60 ) s.

— While pressure is maintained, observe for leaks. After pressure is removed, observe with an eye with

normal visual acuity for permanent deformation, and record observations.
B.3 Drop test

To determine whether the nozzle withstands the impact of being dropped by a user, carry out the

following procedure.

— Attach the fully assembled nozzle, including any outer cover, to a 3 m hose assembly according to

EN 1360:2013. Supply the other end of the hose assembly from a liquid source (this may be water)

providing a flow rate not less than that specified in Table B.1.

— Raise the nozzle (closed to prevent flow) to an approximately horizontal position with the centre of

the nozzle body between 1,0 m and 1,05 m above a concrete surface. Allow the nozzle to fall onto the

concrete surface.
— Repeat this procedure twice, then drain the hose assembly.

— Latch the nozzle lever in the open position and raise the nozzle to an approximately horizontal

position with the centre of the nozzle body between 0,5 m and 0,55 m above a concrete surface.

Commence fluid flow and allow the
