ASME certificate for safety relief valves opens up new markets

Handtmann Armaturenfabrik from Biberach/Riss, Germany, is a manufacturer of safety relieve valves for the food and beverage, pharmaceutical, and cosmetics industries. Production is carried out according to the Pressure Equipment Directive (PED), which, together with various applicable DIN standards, form the basic principles for the design and distribution of safety relieve valves on the European market. But what is the situation outside Europe? For the US market, other regulations and technical requirements apply. The certification of the safety relieve valves according to the relevant ASME code is a prerequisite for entering this market, and it also provides a good basis for other markets such as Canada or Asia.
