Annex A
(normative)
Instructions

Guide for items to be included in manufacturers' installation and user manual.

1)

Specification for mounting of shear valve to ensure that mounting does not break free before the shear
valve operates. For the effective operation of a shear valve it shall be mounted such that the external
forces are permitted to act directly on its separation zone. In general this requirement shall be realised by
attaching the shear valve, via one of its mounting points, to a separate and rigid structure which forms part
of the pump/dispenser housing and via the other attachment point to a separate and rigid structure
forming the pipework external to the pump/dispenser housing. Means shall be provided to enable both
input and output sections of the shear valve to be installed securely such that, in the event of an impact on
the dispenser, the input forces are transmitted to the weak section.

2)

Requirement to remove shipping auxiliaries before use.

3)

Instructions for the proper installation of the test plug, if fitted.

4)

Warning about the dangers of manually setting and re-setting shear valves.

5)

Information as to how to make leak-tight input and output joints.

B.13.2 The shear valve shall be mounted in a test rig.
B.13.3 A bending moment shall be applied in any radial direction, between the upper and lower sections. The
-1
bending moment shall be increased from zero, at (300 30) Nms , to a maximum of 880 Nm.
B.13.4 The maximum applied bending moment shall be recorded. The shear valve shall be observed and
observations shall be recorded.

(informative)
Relationship between this European Standard and the Essential
Requirements of EU Directive 94/9/EC

This European Standard has been prepared under a mandate given to CEN by the European Commission and the
European Free Trade Association to provide a means of conforming to Essential Requirements of the New
Approach Directive 94/9/EC.
Once this standard is cited in the Official Journal of the European Communities under that Directive and has been
implemented as a national standard in at least one Member State, compliance with the normative Clauses of this
standard given in Table ZA.1 confers, within the limits of the scope of this standard, a presumption of conformity
with the corresponding Essential Requirements of that Directive and associated EFTA regulations.
