The piping should be made from materials suitable for the media in the pipes, the maximum pressure and temperature.

It is the fitter’s responsibility to ensure that the piping including all armatures conform to local regulations.

The installation must be performed such that forces from pipes etc. are not transferred to the equipment during and after fitting, as this may result in leaks or damage the equipment.

Select a pipe size so that the flow velocity in the pipe is up to 3 meters/second. This gives a normally accepted pressure loss and low noise from the flow.

In order to facilitate maintenance of the equipment, it is recommended to fit a shut-off valve in the pipelines immediately at the connections for water.


Pipe supports

Always use pipe supports designed for the pipe size and material and maximum working pressure and temp
