Drinking water KTW & WRAS
Certification of materials and products used in drinking water applications is a requirement in many countries to prevent contamination of the drinking water supplies and protect the health of the consumer. Kongsberg Automotive Fluid Systems have been certified for KTW and WRAS, not only for the material but also for the manufacturing of the hose itself .
PTFE hoses can be used to convey hazardous fluids, steam and other dangerous materials which can cause personal injury or property damage. The customer is therefore responsible for all validation and testing prior to issuing those assemblies into application.
The responsibility rests completely on the purchaser to ensure robust and effective testing of every hose assembly before supplying for final use. All hoses are checked extensively throughout all stages of manufacture, and random samples of hose are proof pressure tested. 100% testing can be offered on all products, but does incur a premium. Please contact our sales department.
Standard certificates of conformity and test certificates (hose assemblies) supplied for a nominal fee when requested on customer's purchase order. "Retro" certification will be chargeable at a higher rate. Contact your local KA Fluid System Sales Department for details.
