Performance Requirements for Backflow Prevention Assembly Field Test Kits
ANSI Approved: December 2020
Portable backflow prevention assembly field test kits (BFTK) are used in testing the performance of backflow prevention assemblies. ASSE 1064 covers the performance requirements and accuracy of BFTKs. This standard is confined to analog dial type and digital instrumentation. Duplex gauges are not a part of this standard. BFTKs shall be of a design making them portable. Portable BFTKs shall be designed to indicate the operation of a backflow prevention assembly to pre-established testing procedures. The BFTK shall include all gauges, hoses, valves and fittings as required for testing purposes.
