GRP I Float Switch Approval

Our quality systems and float switch designs have been approved to ATEX GRP I for hazardous mining applications.  This means our explosion proof level switches meet the most stringent build requirements when quality matters.

Fuel tank overfill protection

To Protect UK fuel distribution depots from spillages during the filling process, AMS have provided our solenoid operated servo control valve with high level switches and alarm panels. This ensures operator safety and environmental protection in a hazardous area.

AMS Purchase Cobham Float Switch

In 2008 AMS purchased the Alan Cobham Engineering range of instrumentation and valve products from Meggitt Fuelling Systems in Blandford.  As a result, we continue a 40 year history of manufacturing in the UK from our premises in Cornwall.
