ASCO Primed for New Explosion-Proof Product Certification

The TR CU certification came into effect on the 1st of March 2015

Emerson Industrial Automation announces its market-leading range of ASCO Numatics solenoid valves and fluid automation solutions has achieved Technical Regulation Custom Union (TR CU) certification for explosion-proof equipment in Eurasia.

Anticipating regulatory changes to better serve its customers in Russia, Kazakhstan and Belarus, the new TR CU certification demonstrates the company’s ongoing commitment to quality and safety.

Replacing the current GOST R national Russian certification and GOST K system for Kazakhstan, and now covering all the Eurasian Economic Community (Russia, Kazakhstan and Belarus), the TR CU certification came into effect on the 1st of March 2015. A mandatory requirement for any electrical equipment that is to be operated or installed in hazardous areas and potentially explosive atmospheres in Eurasia, compliance with TR CU is a mark of product quality and acts as proof that production is carried out to approved standards. As of 1st March 2015, it is not permitted to sell explosion-proof equipment in Eurasia without the TR CU.

Wim van de Haar, product and safety manager for Pilot Valves, ASCO Numatics said: ‘Safety is of paramount concern to us. With the TR CU certification, our customers in Eurasia can be reassured that they are installing products of the highest quality. We already have the new certification in place for all major ASCO Numatics product ranges for the Russian, Kazakhstani and Belarusian oil and gas markets.’
