Parker meets fugitive emission standard

21 May 2009

Parker Hannifin has won TA-Luft approval for its manifolds, valves and flanged products following a recent audit of its Instrumentation Products Division by TÜV Mannheim Süd. The German fugitive emission standard largely mirrors the new ISO 15848 regulation and is claimed to help chemical and petrochemical processors implement zero emissions targets.

According to Parker’s project manager, Walter Kummer, ‘Companies are under growing pressure to limit the environmental impact of their industrial processes. Many of the world’s leading chemical and petrochemical processing companies are based in Germany and are already specifying the use of TA-Luft approved components in their installations, to help implement ‘zero emissions’ and safety design goals. The availability of these products from Parker will provide process system designers with a key competitive advantage – in both domestic and world export markets.’

Parker’s flanged manifold valve products and manifolds for instrument hook-ups are already available in ISO 15848 compliant versions. Independent third-party verification of the products’ design and performance testing phases – an obligatory part of the approval process – was provided by Lloyd’s Register. Following the audit by TÜV Mannheim Süd, which looked at Parker’s design, test equipment and production test procedures, the company is now able to demonstrate both ISO 15848 class A and TA-Luft approval.
