PROTEGO® Newsletter


The PROTEGO® PM-HF pilot-controlled pressure and vacuum relief valve is an advanced development of the tried and tested PM/F model. The PM-HF now allows pressure settings of up to 15 psi - 1,034 mbar to be made. Its persuasive design features an improved flow efficiency and extreme seal-tight capability. The valve is now available in a soft-seating configuration. Minimized product losses and, hence, reduced environmental impact are guaranteed. The valve can be put to service in applications where temperatures as low as -196°C prevail.
The PROTEGO® PM-HF has furnished proof of its excellent performance in extensive endurance tests conducted under overload and in tough climatic conditions.

Changes in Academy & Services

Since 2009, Dr Victor Halstrick has developed the PROTEGO® Academy, expanding its activities to become a successful integral part of our services portfolio. In over 50 training courses organized in Braunschweig, almost 700 interested customers/partners have since attended instructions under the scheme. In another 160 instruction courses organized at customers' on site, more than 2,000 participants were coached to learn more about our products and how to handle them.

Dr Halstrick will go into retirement at the end of June 2014. At this time we are grateful to Dr Victor Halstrick for the activities he has pursued in relation to the Academy.

Thomas Anderssohn is currently being entrusted with the activities, and will continue the Academy's work on his own from the second half of 2014. Tino Haas, once adequately familiarized and trained as well as officially introduced, will look after the service activities pursued by Mr Anderssohn to date (on site by PROTEGO® service technicians).

We trust that work with our customers and partners will continue to be hand in glove.

PROTEGO USA implements ISO 9001 quality management system

PROTEGO USA, a PROTEGO® subsidiary based in Charleston, SC, has successfully implemented a quality management system in compliance with the requirements of ISO 9001:2008.

Considerable effort by all PROTEGO USA staff was essential in realizing this goal. Going forward, PROTEGO USA plans to continuously improve its quality management system and expand it by pursuing ATEX certification.
