High-pressure water jet machines - Safety requirements - Part 2: Hoses, hose lines and connectors
This European Standard applies to hoses, hose lines and connectors intended to be used with high-pressure water jet machines within the scope of prEN 1829-1. This European Standard deals with all significant hazards, hazardous situations and events relevant to the equipment in the scope, when it is used as intended and under conditions of misuse which are reasonably foreseeable by the manufacturer (see clause 4). This European Standard deals with safety requirements to minimise the significant hazards which can arise from assembling, operating and servicing of hoses, hose lines and connectors for use with high pressure water jet machines (see clause 5). NOTE 1 This European Standard does not cover leak shields since they are not part of a hose line. The hazard due to scalding from hot liquid or from irritation / burning of any added chemicals is not covered in this European Standard. This European Standard is not applicable to hoses, hose lines and their accessories, which are manufactured before the date of its publication as EN. NOTE 2 For products of similar application that are outside of the scope of this European Standard and for which there is no alternative document available the relevant Clauses of this European Standard may be used.
