Iron technology leader Saint-Gobain PAM UK, part of leading international materials company Saint Gobain, has launched an enhanced range of fixed flange joint sets which are compliant with all the requirements of the 7th edition of Civil Engineering Specification for the Water Industry (CESWI).
The new PN16 joint sets, available for pipes between DN80 and DN1200 in size, each contain a full face (EPDM or nitrile) gasket and mild steel Rilsan coated bolts, with a nut and two washers per bolt.
The sets have been specifically designed and engineered to meet CESWI stipulations that bolts should have two threads showing when tightened in their final position and that washers should be provided under both the head of the bolt and under the nut.
The addition of the new flange joint sets to its range means Saint-Gobain PAM UK can offer a complete CESWI-compliant solution encompassing flanged pipes, fittings, valves, couplings, adaptors, and fixed flange joint sets.
Olga Luengo Gonzalez, Product Manager - Water & Sewer, Saint-Gobain PAM UK, explained: “Correct jointing is key to ensuring that pipe systems perform correctly and the CESWI 7th edition regulations are very clear on the requirements on jointing products to achieve this. Our new fixed flange joint sets mean that customers can choose from a range of high-specification products guaranteed to meet the most stringent industry requirements.”
