EN 10311:2005 (E) 7 4 Types of joint 4.1 Butt welded joints Butt-welded joints shall be made between tubes or tubes and fittings with their ends prepared in accordance with EN 10224. The maximum gap between the ends of the tubes or the tubes and fittings when set up for welding shall be in accordance with EN 1011-2. 4.2 Welded spigot and socket (sleeve) joints 4.2.1 General Welded spigot and socket (sleeve) joints for welding shall comply with 4.2.2 or 4.2.3. The general form of the joints given in Figure 1 may differ in detail from one manufacturer to another, however the principal dimensions shown shall be measured, using appropriate equipment, and values shall be as stated, subject to the manufacturers stipulated tolerances. NOTE The dimensions of sleeve joints apply when they are shaped or made on tubes and/or fittings. On tubes and fittings of outside diameter smaller than 711 mm, the joint may be welded on the outside only. On tubes or fittings with outside diameter 711 mm and larger, welding may be either inside, or outside, or both inside and outside. Such joints have been designed to allow the same forces to be transmitted as if the welds were fillet welds of a size appropriate to the thickness of the materials being joined. 4.2.2 Spigot and socket (sleeve) joints (type 1) For type 1 joints (see Figure 1) the tubes or fittings shall be supplied with spigot end parallel and sleeve end either parallel or with the diameter tapered by approximately 0,8 mm on diameter per 25 mm length of sleeve. These latter joints are designed for taper sleeves, so that the depth of penetration of the spigot into the sleeve anywhere around the circumference shall be not less than 30 mm but shall also be sufficient, if applicable, to accommodate any holes made in the sleeve to permit testing of the joint. When used to accommodate small changes in pipeline direction, the spigot shall additionally penetrate the sleeve around the whole circumference to an average depth of not less than 40 mm. NOTE 1 At maximum penetration, the spigot can locate in the undimensioned transition area between the sleeve and the tube body. Care should be taken in expanding the tube end to prevent excessive weld gaps between the spigot and sleeve. The manufacturer or supplier shall obtain from the purchaser at the time of enquiry and order specific details of the end preparation necessary for tubes and fittings for use with these types of joint. NOTE 2 Assembly of sleeve joints on site in preparation for welding may require mechanical alignment aids e.g. props, jacks or wedges. 4.2.3 Spigot and socket (sleeve) joints (type 2) For type 2 joints (see Figure 1) the tubes or fittings shall be supplied with the spigot end and the sleeve end parallel. The collar forming the sleeve shall be fabricated with not more than one longitudinal weld and shall be welded externally and internally to the sleeve tube. To ensure an adequate space between the spigot end and the internal collar weld to effect the inside joint weld, if required, the minimum sleeve length shall be (150 + 2T) mm for D > 168,3 mm and (100+ 2T) mm for D ≤ 168,3 mm, where T is the wall thickness of the sleeve.

The manufacturer or supplier of the threaded joints shall obtain information at the time of enquiry and order confirming the appropriate part of EN 10226 required. NOTE 1 Threaded joints are normally made between tubes in accordance with EN 10255 and fittings in accordance with EN 10241 (steel) and/or EN 10242 (malleable cast iron). NOTE 2 An appropriate sealing material should be applied to the threads before making the joint.
EN 10311:2005 (E) 11 4.6 Spigot and socket joints with seal A general form of a spigot and socket joint with seal is given in Figure 4.
As these types of joint can differ in detail from one manufacturer to another, the manufacturer shall define the principal dimensions at the time of enquiry and order. These dimensions shall be measured, using appropriate equipment, and values shall be as stated, subject to the manufacturers stipulated tolerances.
NOTE 1 The spigot and socket joint with seal shown in Figure 4 is a general form.
Details of other versions can be found in international and national publications.NOTE 2
The connection is produced by inserting the spigot end into the socket end that contains a rubber seal. By inserting the spigot end into the socket, the rubber seal is deformed in an axial direction and seals the connection by the resilience present in the rubber seal. NOTE 3 The insertion depth of the spigot into the socket is critical to ensure good sealing.
Joint details can differ from one manufacturer to another and the insertion depth is normally specific to the particular make of joint used. NOTE 4 To absorb axial forces in the connection, special rubber rings can be required.
1 Key 1 Seal Figure 4 — Spigot and socket joints with seal (general form) 4.7 Seals Where joints utilise elastomeric seals (seals) these shall be in accordance with EN 681-1. 4.8 Couplings (slip-on type couplings) 4.8.1 Sleeve couplings A general form of sleeve coupling for use with plain end tube or fittings is given in Figure 5.
As the lengths S and L can vary from one manufacturer to another, the manufacturer shall define these principal dimensions at the time of enquiry and order.
These dimensions shall be measured, using appropriate equipment, and values shall be as states, subject to the manufacturer’s stipulated tolerances. NOTE 1 The sleeve length and tolerance at the end of the tube or fitting is specific to the particular make of coupling used.
NOTE 2 This type of coupling can be used for the connection of different diameters and/or different materials.EN 10311:2005 (E) 12 SL

As these types of joint can differ in detail from one manufacturer to another, the manufacturer shall define the principal dimensions at the time of enquiry and order.
These dimensions shall be measured, using appropriate equipment, and values shall be as stated, subject to the manufacturers stipulated tolerances.
Figure 6 — Grooved and shouldered couplings (general form) 5 Classification 5.1 General Joints shall be classified as non-restrained (see 5.2) or restrained (see 5.3) and either rigid (see 5.4) or adjustable, (see 5.5).
EN 10311:2005 (E) 13 5.2 Non-restrained joints Non-restrained joints shall have adequate axial withdrawal to accommodate any axial spigot movement induced by temperature fluctuations and the Poisson contraction of the tube or tube and fitting under internal pressure in addition to the specified angular deflection. NOTE Spigot and socket joints with seal and some mechanical joints e.g. slip-on couplings are non-restrained joints. 5.3 Restrained joints Restrained joints shall withstand the end-thrust due to internal pressure and, where applicable, due to temperature fluctuation and the Poisson contraction of the tube or tube and fitting under internal pressure. NOTE Butt-welded joints, welded spigot and socket (or sleeve) joints, welding collars, flanged joints, threaded joints and some mechanical couplings are restrained joints. 5.4 Rigid joints Rigid joints shall maintain the axial alignment of tubes or tubes and fittings to within 2°. NOTE Butt-welded joints, spigot and socket (or sleeve) joints (after welding), welding collars, flanged joints, threaded joints and some mechanical couplings are rigid joints. 5.5 Adjustable joints Adjustable joints shall accommodate angular displacement of tubes or tube and fitting of not less than: 3 ° 30’ for D ≤ 300 2 ° 30’ for D 300 mm to 700 mm 1 ° 30’ for D > 700 mm NOTE Welded spigot and socket (or sleeve) joints with taper sleeves before welding, spigot and socket joints with seal and some mechanical couplings are adjustable joints. 6 Requirements 6.1 General Joints shall exhibit no visible leakage or ingress, as appropriate, of aqueous liquid when subjected to the following type tests by the manufacturer: Test 1: positive internal hydrostatic pressure in accordance with 7.3.2; the type test pressure shall be 1,5 p + 5 bar1). Test 2: negative internal pressure of 0,8 bar below atmospheric pressure (approximately 0,1 bar1) absolute pressure), in accordance with 7.3.3. Test 3: positive external hydrostatic pressure of 2 bar1), in accordance with 7.3.4 when intended for use at depths greater than 5 m below water level.1) 1 bar = 100 kN/m2 = 100 kPa.

This test applies to spigot and socket joints with seal (see 4.6). Where p is the allowable maximum operating pressure of the joint declared by the manufacturer. Where it can be shown by either physical test results (see 8.1), calculation or compliance with tabulated values that joint designs that have already been in service for a minimum of 10 years prior to the first publication of this document can meet the necessary essential characteristics, then Test 4 shall be deemed not to be necessary. NOTE These joints are generally tested after on-site installation. All other types of joint shall be leak-tight when tested in accordance with Clause 7. 6.2 Reaction to fire Uncoated ferrous product material is class A1.2).
Products supplied coated or lined, when the coating contains more than 1,0 % by weight or volume (whichever is the lower) of homogeneously distributed organic material shall be tested and classified according to EN 13501-1 NOTE Seals are encased in steel or cast iron and their reaction to fire is therefore not relevant. 6.3 Dangerous substances Materials used in the production of joints shall not release any dangerous substances in excess of the maximum permitted levels specified in a relevant European Standard for the material or permitted in the national regulations of the member state of destination 7 Testing 7.1 General Type testing shall be carried out under the most adverse conditions of tolerance, angularity of tubes and or fittings, and joint movement relevant to the design of joint. Type testing shall be carried out using one representative tube (or fitting) size in each of the groups given in Table 1: Table 1 — Preferred outside diameter of tubular products for type testing Dimensions in millimetresOutside diameter groups
