The Testing Body for sanitary taps and building valves at MPA NRW is specialized in type tests of sanitary taps (DIN EN 200 and DIN EN 817), thermostatic mixing valves (DIN EN 1111) and of ball valves (DIN EN 13828). We can perform e.g. tightness tests, determination of flow rates and endurance tests on cartridges, head pieces, diverters, swivel spouts and thermal elements. The noise tests required in the above mentioned standards are also offered by MPA NRW.
