Supplementary Safety Information
Installation and Maintenance Instructions
Safe operation of these products can only be guaranteed if they are properly
installed, commissioned, used and maintained by qualified personnel (see Section
11 on this document) in compliance with the operating instructions. General
installation and safety instructions for pipeline and plant construction, as well as
the proper use of tools and safety equipment must also be complied with.
Intended use
Referring to the Installation and Maintenance Instructions, name-plate and Technical
Information Sheet, check that the product is suitable for the intended use/application.
The products listed below comply with the requirements of the European Pressure
Equipment Directive 97/23/EC and carry the
mark when so required. The products
fall within the following Pressure Equipment Directive categories:
Group 2
37D, TR5037T /E and all derivatives, sizes DN15 - DN40
37D, TR5037T /E and all derivatives, sizes DN50
The products have been specifically designed for use on steam which is in Group
2 of the above mentioned Pressure Equipment Directive. The products’ use on
other fluids may be possible but, if this is contemplated, Spirax Sarco should be
contacted to confirm the suitability of the product for the application being
ii) Check material suitability, pressure and temperature and their maximum and
minimum values. If the maximum operating limits of the product are lower than
those of the system in which it is being fitted, or if malfunction of the product
could result in a dangerous overpressure or overtemperature occurrence, ensure
a safety device is included in the system to prevent such over-limit situations.
iii) Determine the correct installation situation and direction of fluid flow.
iv) Spirax Sarco products are not intended to withstand external stresses that may
be induced by any system to which they are fitted. It is the responsibility of the
installer to consider these stresses and take adequate precautions to minimise
v) Remove protection covers from all connections before installation.

Ensure safe access and if necessary a safe working platform (suitably guarded)
before attempting to work on the product. Arrange suitable lifting gear if required.
Ensure adequate lighting, particularly where detailed or intricate work is required.
Hazardous liquids or gases in the pipeline
Consider what is in the pipeline or what may have been in the pipeline at some
previous time. Consider: flammable materials, substances hazardous to health,
extremes of temperature.
Hazardous environment around the product
Consider: explosion risk areas, lack of oxygen (e.g. tanks, pits), dangerous gases,
extremes of temperature, hot surfaces, fire hazard (e.g. during welding), excessive
noise, moving machinery.
The system
Consider the effect on the complete system of the work proposed. Will any proposed
action (e.g. closing isolation valves, electrical isolation) put any other part of the
system or any personnel at risk?
Dangers might include isolation of vents or protective devices or the rendering
ineffective of controls or alarms. Ensure isolation valves are turned on and off in a
gradual way to avoid system shocks.
Pressure systems
Ensure that any pressure is isolated and safely vented to atmospheric pressure.
Consider double isolation (double block and bleed) and the locking or labelling of
closed valves. Do not assume that the system has depressurised even when the
pressure gauge indicates zero.
Allow time for temperature to normalise after isolation to avoid danger of burns.
Tools and consumables
Before starting work ensure that you have suitable tools and /or consumables
available. Use only genuine Spirax Sarco replacement parts.
Protective clothing
Consider whether you and / or others in the vicinity require any protective clothing
to protect against the hazards of, for example, chemicals, high / low temperature,
radiation, noise, falling objects, and dangers to eyes and face.

Permits to work
All work must be carried out or be supervised by a suitably competent person.
Installation and operating personnel should be trained in the correct use of the
product according to the Installation and Maintenance Instructions.
Where a formal 'permit to work' system is in force it must be complied with. Where
there is no such system, it is recommended that a responsible person should know
what work is going on and, where necessary, arrange to have an assistant whose
primary responsibility is safety.
Post 'warning notices' if necessary.
Manual handling of large and / or heavy products may present a risk of injury. Lifting,
pushing, pulling, carrying or supporting a load by bodily force can cause injury
particularly to the back. You are advised to assess the risks taking into account the
task, the individual, the load and the working environment and use the appropriate
handling method depending on the circumstances of the work being done.
Residual hazards
In normal use the external surface of the product may be very hot. If used at the
maximum permitted operating conditions the surface temperature of some products
may reach temperatures of 300°C.
Many products are not self-draining. Take due care when dismantling or removing
the product from an installation (refer to 'Maintenance instructions').
Provision must be made to protect products which are not self-draining against
frost damage in environments where they may be exposed to temperatures below
freezing point.
Unless otherwise stated in the Installation and Maintenance Instructions, this
product is recyclable and no ecological hazard is anticipated with its disposal
providing due care is taken.
Returning products
Customers and stockists are reminded that under EC Health, Safety and
Environment Law, when returning products to Spirax Sarco they must provide
information on any hazards and the precautions to be taken due to contamination
residues or mechanical damage which may present a health, safety or
environmental risk. This information must be provided in writing including
Health and Safety data sheets relating to any substances identified as hazardous
or potentially hazardous.
