Health and Safety in AVK products
Specialised products for safe use across demanding applications
AVK is dedicated to offering its customers the highest safety possible. Our products are part of complex systems handling vital processes every day, such as distribution of tap water and products for food industries, healthcare etc. To make sure that our products are up to the challenge we have a strict, consistent approach to product development, testing and approval. Within careful control, AVK products fulfil or exceed all international standards and approvals, and all new products undergo a number of tests and quality control procedures, including computer simulation, prototype tests, accelerated lifetime tests, destructive tests and practical field tests.
A strong, protective layer of coating is first of all important in order to maintain the high quality and functionality of the product. Furthermore, an AVK product should have no impact on the resources in direct contact with it, i.e. clean drinking water.
