Mechanical Seals Division news

Mechanical Seals Division is currently working on several projects.

  • EHEDG Doc 25 on Design of Mechanical Seals for Hygienic and Aseptic Applications will be updated. A kick- off meeting of interested experts, including members of ESA, is scheduled for February 2016 in Amsterdam/Netherlands.
  • ATEX Directive 94/9/EC has been replaced by Directive 2014/34/EU (ATEX) at 26. 02. 2014. The new Directive will be effective from 20. 04. 2014 on. With few exceptions, there is no essential change but a new name. The ESA Position Paper on ATEX will be (has already) adopted to the new Directive.
  • Regulation EC 1935/2004 Art. 16 - Declaration of compliance for materials and products intended to come into contact with food - is still confusing customers. Mechanical Seals Division is working on this topic to determine, whenever possible, an ESA Position Paper beginning next year.
