BS EN 545:2010

Ductile iron pipes, fittings, accessories and their joints for water pipelines. Requirements and test methods

Status : Under review, Current   Published : October 2010



What is BS EN 545:2010?

BS EN 545:2010 provides best-practice requirements and test methods for ductile iron pipes, pipe fittings, accessories and their joints for the construction of pipelines outside buildings. This can be to transport different types of water with or without pressure, below or above ground. This standard applies to pipes, fittings and accessories with socketed, flanged or spigot ends and internal or external coatings. It also gives performance requirements for couplings, flange adaptors and saddles that are manufactured to use with ductile iron pipes and fittings.

How does it work?

BS EN 545:2010 looks at the technical requirements, pressure class and dimensional tolerances for ductile iron pipes and their fittings. It also gives an in-depth explanation of coatings and linings, as well as the marking of pipes, fittings and accessories. This standard gives an accurate outline of best practice performance test methods – including ways to test the strength of the cement mortar lining and leak tightness of joints and pipe saddles.

Who should buy it?

  • Civil engineers
  • Industrial engineers
  • Manufacturers of iron pipes, pipe fittings and accessories
  • Procurement managers of construction materials
  • Suppliers of couplings, flange adaptors and pipe saddles
