PART 21 - INCORRECT TIP MATERIAL USED ON GAUGES

On December 27, 2019, United Controls International received a Product Advisory Letter from Ashcroft Inc. dated December 2, 2019 informing of a potential error in the tip material used on Ashcroft 2 « inch and 3 « inch model 1009, 63 mm model 2008, 63 mm and 100 mm model 1008 industrial gauges along with Weksler 3 « inch regal gauges. Due to a supplier issue, 304SS tip material may have been supplied on the subject gauges instead of the specified 316SS material. In certain applications the 304SS tip material may be subject to accelerated oxidation or degradation, resulting in potential release of process media. However, no detrimental effects are expected in non-corrosive applications.

Hatch and Farley have been identified as the affected plants and have been notified of this issue.

Please contact Wesley Hickle, Engineering Manager, at (770) 496-1406 ext. 165 or whickle@unitedcontrols.com for any questions.
