Fully certified to meet the requirements of the European (EC) 1935-2004 and the USA Food and Drug Administration (FDA) CFR21 food contact regulations, the DN10 to DN65 valves can be used to control auxiliary fluids on food processes where the flowing media may come into contact with the food. In addition, the valves also comply with the (EC) 10/2011 standards for plastics material intended to come into contact with food, and are manufactured in accordance with the (EC) 2023/2006 standard for good manufacturing practice. Similar to many ASCO products the valves also comply with the RoHS 2 (EU) 2011/65 standard which restricts the use of hazardous materials.

The valves are robust in design, offer high flow and performance capabilities thanks to the angle seat design and are available with a range of options.
