The products are intended to be used in connections between the district heating distribution system and the separate house (blocks) for the supply of warm drinking water, at a design pressure (= maximum working pressure) of 1,1 MPa (11 bar absolute or 10 bar overpressure) or 0,9 MPa (9 bar absolute or 8 bar overpressure) under the conditions mentioned in table 1. 


Each pressure mentioned in this BRL is defined as overpressure.

(So, with "10 bar" a "10 bar overpressure" is meant).

Procedure for obtaining the quality declaration 

Pre-certification evaluation

The pre-certification evaluation to be performed is based on the (product) requirements as described in this evaluation guideline, including the test methods and contain, depending on the nature of the product to be certified:

• type testing to determine whether the products comply with the product and/or functional requirements;

• Production process assessment;

• Assessment of the quality system and the IQC-scheme;

• Assessment of the presence and functioning of other required procedures.

Granting the quality declaration

After finishing the pre-certification evaluation, the results are presented to the person deciding on granting of the certificate. This person evaluates the results and decides whether the certificate can be granted or additional data and/or tests are necessary.
