Steel Pipe Fittings to BS EN 10241:2000 (BS1740-1:1971) for Process Steam
Purely from our own experience the most common use of steel pipe fitting to BS EN 10241:2000 (BS1740-1:1971) are on process steam systems in conjunction with steel tube to BS EN 10255:2004 (BS1387:1985). The range of fittings available is not as wide as our malleable iron pipe fittings but still offers all you should ever need to install any low pressure steam system (0-12Bar). The advantage of using this range of steel pipe fittings to BS EN 10241:2000 (BS1740-1:1971) as opposed to its malleable iron cousin is in the fact that steel pipe fittings have superior mechanical properties including higher tensile strength.
