ISSUE V ANNEX I SPECIAL TERMS OF SUPPLY

1. a) b)

Special Terms for Materials of Category Regarding specification MR-010, both joints for (G2.5 - G25) and flanges for (G40 - G100) are part of the supply, as mentioned also in Specification 001, which is referred to by -MR-10. Regulators of capacity 150m3/h (code 422108) will fulfill requirements of specification -MR-013, except that they will not include the measuring part of the device, while the regulator outlet pressure will be 25mbar and not 100mbar. The regulators in an underground cabinet will be accompanied by the appropriate vent sets, which will include: the vent line (ATTENTION: in spiral long 8m. and not 3m. as mentioned in the relevant specification) the cover of the vent line free end the necessary accessories for mounting the vent line at the point of installation (e.g. supports, screws, etc.)

c)

d)

The regulators in an underground cabinet will be accompanied upon delivery by the following: instructions for the installation of the underground regulator (substrate, sealing, etc.) instructions for assembling the box and sealing material of the several box parts Gland boxes for taking the line in and out of the box

e)

ATTENTION: The height of the cabinets of the underground regulators will be such that the distance between the inlet line and the ground surface will be 50-60 cm and not 35 cm as mentioned in the relevant specification. The two alternatives provided in the specification _013, regarding the cabinets of the underground regulators, are equivalent. The test standards mentioned in the specifications for the cabinets of wallmounted and underground regulators (_008 and _013 respectively) and cabinets of meters (_009) are the ones desired by EPA Attikis, but alternative test standards can also be accepted, e.g. National standards of European Economic Area countries, provided that they have proved to produce an equivalent result. The Manufacturer Suppliers bears the responsibility for the relevant documentation, which is evaluated by EPA Attikis. More specifically, the supplier must produce a certificate of equivalence of the standards proposed by them with the standards mentioned in the above specifications, which must have been issued by an inspection authority. Any differences in the requirements of the standards must be pointed out by the Authority, in order to be evaluated by EPA Attikis.

f) g)

h)

All cabinets (plastic or metal) used in the meters with a box, as well as in the sets of regulators - meters, must bear a meter bearing slot, according to the respective specification 009. This slot will be larger than the meter indication by 2cm on each side. The meter must be centered precisely as to the reading slot in order for its indication to be clearly legible. Illegibility of the meter indication is a cause of non-compliance of the material with the specifications and EPA Attikis will not accept it.

i)

All cabinets (plastic or metal) used in the meters with a box, in the wall-mounted regulators as well as in the sets of regulators - meters must bear the marking provided for in the specifications. This applies also to the surface covers of the underground regulators.

8. MODULAR METERS For the purpose of standardizing meter installation, we recommend that the following method is applied where possible: Regarding the first meter (commonly used for central heating) and provided that there are no other requests, the wall - mounted regulator shall be installed in a common cabinet with the meter. The cabinet shall include an extension port for installation of the subsequent meter. Additional meters shall be installed in modular cabinets, according to figure 1 below. Each new meter shall be connected to the former one inside the cabinet, on a suitable receptacle. This way, unsightly bare tube assemblies are avoided, where these would be used to make connections between meters and with the regulator as well. The above mentioned solution is highly recommended for the case where the regulator is installed separately from the meters. In particular, the order must refer to modular meters with provisions to make connections inside the cabinet for each subsequent meter.
