There are two types of CE/UKCA marked products that we provide customers:


Type 1: Designed and manufactured in accordance with the specifications required by customers for their specific service conditions.
Type 2: Designed, manufactured, considering general service conditions, and stocked at our distributors and wholesalers, for customer s occasional off the shelf selection for their specific service conditions.


In case of Type 1, we can provide customers with optimum products designed and manufactured to comply with their specific requirements. However, in case of Type 2, it is possible that some products are not suitable for such specific service conditions, since they are designed, manufactured and stocked at
our distributors and wholesalers for general purpose applications (KITZ general purpose valves below).
Therefore, customers are responsible, in case of Type 2, for selectin g proper products in accordance with their own specific service conditions.
For reference purpose, we draw your attention here to what needs to be carefully considered when selecting valve products for longer and safer use. Please contact KITZ Corporation or its authorized distributors, if you need further information about your selection of KITZ products.
