Franklin Fueling Systems is pleased to announce that the UPP Pipework System has received German DIBt approval.
A true testament to the safety and reliability of the UPP Pipework System, the approval was received only after meeting the strict demands of the DIBt approval process which involves achieving several qualifications even more exacting than EN 14125 standard approval testing. As part of the approval process, UPP non-conductive pipework was certified to be safe in respect to static risk by the German PTB approval agency.
The DIBt approval includes an A-deviation from the EN 14125 standard, which mandates a more stringent zero permeation requirement in Germany. To meet such a stringent requirement, UPP pipe was subjected to a SHED (Sealed Housing for Evaporative Determination) test.
The aim of the SHED test is to detect any emission from pipe which has been pressurized and filled with aggressive test fuel. This test was conducted using an FID (Flame Ionization Detector) capable of detecting the most minimal traces of permeation from the pipe. UPP pipe passed this test confirming its outstanding performance with zero permeation. Additional testing was conducted on UPP fittings to verify the strength of the electrofusion joint between the pipe and fittings - all producing positive results.
In addition to the new approval, the main Franklin Fueling Systems distribution facility for the EMEA region (Europe, Middle East and Africa) is located in Wittlich, Germany and thus well suited to ensure UPP Pipework is quickly and readily available for the German market.
