Plastics piping systems for water supply, and for drains and sewers under pressure - Polyethylene (PE) - Part 3: Fittings; German version EN 12201-3:2024


DIN EN 12201-3 specifies the characteristics of fittings made from polyethylene (PE 100 and PE 80) intended for the conveyance of water for human consumption, raw water prior to treatment, drainage and sewerage under pressure, vacuum sewer systems, and water for other purposes. It also specifies the test parameters for the test methods referred to in this standard. In conjunction with DIN EN 12201-1, -2, -4 and -5 it is applicable to PE fittings, their joints and to joints with components of PE and other materials intended to be used under the following conditions:a) allowable operating pressure, PFA, up to 25 bar;b) an operating temperature of 20 °C as a reference temperature;c) buried in the ground;d) sea outfalls;e) laid in water;f) above ground, including pipes suspended below bridges. DIN EN 12201 (all parts) covers a range of allowable operating pressures and gives requirements concerning colours and additives.
