Piping systems and components for tap water, distribution and sewerage - Taps and mixers for kitchen and bathroom

Besides looking nice a tap must also work efficiently and meet the requirements for drinking water components.

If a tap is put on the European marked, the following conditions must be documented:

  • The tap must not contain hazardous substances that can be released to the drinking water – Godkendt til drikkevand” (approved for drinking water)
  • The tap must meet the standardized requirements ensuring a satisfactory service life with regard to wear and ageing.
  • The tap must meet the national requirements with regard to flow and loss of pressure.
  • The acoustic characteristics of the tap must be documented and meet the requirements of the specific countries and regions.
  • It may also be required that the tap is equipped with a water saving device and meet the Eco-design requirements or other sustainability requirements.

How can Danish Technological Institute help you?

  • We have knowledge of the requirements in various countries.
  • We carry out mechanical endurance testing of the operating unit, the swivel nozzle, the diverter, etc.
  • We carry out leaktightness testing at various pressures.
  • We measure the flow capacity of the tap.
  • We measure the acoustic characteristics of the tap.
  • We carry out testing for migration of heavy metals, etc., and we carry out corrosion testing.
  • Our test results are recognised internationally.
