When purchasing malleable cast iron fittings, it is important to understand the technical differences between products and the standards, legislation or regulations applicable, to ensure that only fittings of the appropriate type, grade and technical delivery conditions and standards are specified or selected for the application(s) concerned.
This includes the user ensuring the suitability of the products for the operating pressure and temperature ranges required. We encourage our members to undertake appropriate due diligence to ensure that any additional manufacturer’s product claims, above and beyond those listed within the relevant standard(s), are supported with the appropriate technical statements.
BMTFA’s new industry information pack has been prepared by members and the BMTFA Technical Committee, which is made up of building services product specialist and applications engineers. Information is provided for guidance only with the view to help improve awareness of malleable iron fittings. Equally we cannot recommend whether certain products should be used in place of those that have been certified to a standard.
