SURFACE/ZINC PLATING

EE brand fittings can be supplied in accordance to order: with black or galvanized surface According to EN 10242, zinc oating weight relative to the surface exceeds 500 gr/m², which corresponds to an average layer thickness of 70micron. Both black and galvanized surfaces are protected against corrosion. Corrosion protection substance does not contain polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons.

OPERATING PRESSURE

Our Malleable Iron Fittings can perform at the highest admissible working pressure and temperature ranges quoted in the left table.
Constructional symbol A is characterized by the following material: whiteheart, malleable cast iron EN-GJMW-400-5.

  • 2.5 MPa/25 bar/ at the temp. from -20°C to 120°C
  • 2.0 MPa/20 bar/ at the temp. of 300°C

LEAK TEST

According to EN 10242, each EE brand fitting is subjected to a leak test at air pressure of at least 0,5 MPa / 5 bar, which is equivalent to a minimum hydrostatic pressure of 2.0 MPa / 20 bar/.

THE THREADS

Fittings have the threads in accordance with ISO 7-1:
  • external – conical (R)
  • internal – cylindrical (Rp)
Threads of lock-nuts, union nuts and threads mating with them – according to ISO 228-1.

CONIAL UNIONS

Conical unions (tightened on a taper) should be assembled using minimal tightening moment:

Dimension in inches 3/8 1/2 3/4 1 11/4 11/2 2 21/2 3 4
Tightening moment Nm 60 90 120 170 210 250 340 420 500 600
NOTE: Conical unions and conical union details cannot be used twice because it will not guarantee the joint leak tightness.


THE GASKETS

The material for gaskets depends on the usage (the transmitted factor, temperature). The gaskets of our unions are made of synthetic fibers which do not contain asbestos:
  • Max working temperature standard 155 C°
  • Max working temperature standard 130 C°
Higher parameters to be agreed upon orders.
gaskets
The thickness of gaskets for flat unions from 3/8 ÷ 11/2”- 2 mm and from 2 ÷ 4” – 3 mm. The gaskets and other seals measures to the threads used by the customers shall comply with the requirements and standards appropriate to the type of installation.

Flat unions require the following dimensions of gaskets:
