A successful history is coming to an end for the three component-tested safety valve types. The validity of the EU type examination certificates according to the Pressure Equipment Directive 2014/68/EU expires at the end of April 2022. This also affects customer-specific safety valve solutions based on the above-mentioned safety valves as well as bung pressure and safety valves.
Due to changed regulations and standard requirements and a detailed economic consideration, M&S has decided not to extend the approved type and consequently to discontinue the production with expiration of the validity. However, spare parts for the discontinued valves are available until further notice, as are our proven hygienic HyCom safety valves.
