Limit indicator for fuel oil consumer plants
According to the regulations for protection of water against pollution, the overfilling of tanks in fuel oil consumer plants must be avoided in a safe way. This basic requirement is fulfilled if a limit indicator in accordance with EN 13616 is properly installed and used.
The technical data sheet Limit indicator for fuel oil consumer plants gives details of every aspect in words and pictures. Specialist companies will now find the setting dimensions for tanks according to construction standard in the annex.
This data sheet shows clearly the different female and male threads for pipes as well as pipe and hose connections.
Pipe threads R for connections where the seal is made on the thread according to EN 10226-1 require, for example, sufficiently deformable materials for the use with fittings, whereas pipe threads G for connections where the seal is not made on the thread according to EN ISO 228-1 can be used in diverse ways.
Hose assemblies for oil firing installations
The data sheet is tailored to hose assemblies of type 1 according to EN ISO 6806. These hose assemblies consist of an oil-resistant inner hose, an outer zinc-coated metal wire mesh and corrosion-resistant hose fittings and can be used for a maximum operating pressure of 10 bar.
Extracts of the German rules and regulations and illustrated assembly instructions make the handling of hose assemblies for oil firing installations easier.
This data sheet answers the following questions on compression fittings with 24° inner cone in a short and clear way:
- Which standards are relevant?
- How does the olive guarantee the reliable connection?
- Which materials can go together?
- What is the maximum operating pressure a (screw-in) compression fitting may be subject to?
- What influence do higher temperatures have on the maximum operating pressure?
- What has to be taken into account when using compression fittings as connector for plain ended pipes according to the German DIN 3387-1 in the gas installation?
- Which minimum pipe lengths are required for the assembly?
Flood and risk areas
The data sheet gives quick information about the suitability of products in oil firing installations in flood and risk areas according to the German WHG (Federal Water Act).
The data sheet answers the question in detail what has to be done with installed products after a possible flooding.
Universal connectors type UA PS 16 bar
In addition to the assembly instructions, this data sheet describes the universal connectors type UA in detail for practising experts.
Most GOK fittings for oil firing installations with a female thread G3/8 are designed for the use of the universal connectors type UA as line connection.
The connectors are now standardised in prEN 12514-4:2009 annex D as clamp connection of version G.
