Franklin Achieves New EN14125:2013 Approval for UPP™ Brand Pipework System

18/02/2014

EN14125:2013 Thermoplastic and flexible metal pipework for underground installation at petrol filling stations (T1 & T2 temperature class)Franklin Fueling Systems, the global leader in petroleum equipment total system solutions, announced today that they have achieved their third-party certificate of compliance towards the new EN14125:2013 standard for the UPP™ brand pipework system. This revision to the EN standard contains additional fuel compatibilities, new definitions for secondary containment, as well as a refinement to the conductivity classification of piping systems.

“Being at the forefront of the testing to achieve this new version of the EN standard speaks to our commitment to product quality and safety,” said Allan Busch, Global Piping & Containment Product Manager. “We are committed to providing our customers with best-in-class products which are approved to the latest global standards,” he continued.

The approval comes after a year of testing procedures including fuel permeation testing with E-85 and B-100 fuels. The standard revision also provides two new classifications for secondary contained pipework - a system with continuous 360° separation between the primary and secondary pipework and fittings, and those systems without continuous 360° separation. The UPP™ pipework system provides full 360° separation between the primary and secondary containment.

The standard also now redefines the conductivity classification of piping systems under Annex B into three groups (Conductive, Insulating and Dissipative) and provides guidelines to ensure safety for all three of these groups. The UPP™ pipework system is recognized as being Insulating with proven safety regarding electrostatic hazards according to EN13463-1. See the revised EN14125:2013 approval for more details.
