Walhalla, S.C. — Nason, a manufacturer of custom engineered switches, and pneumatic and hydraulic automation products, has received NSF/ANSI Standard 169 Certification for its complete line of SM model pressure switches and VM model vacuum switches.

NSF International, a not-for-profit, non-governmental organization, is the world leader in standards development, product certification, education, and risk-management for public health and safety. NSF/ANSI Standard 169 is a certification established for special purpose food equipment and devices, which have special, complex, or multiple functions.

"Nason is focused on delivering quality, customized solutions for our customers," stated Steve Mihaly, president of Nason. "The NSF certification is a direct result of Nason going above and beyond to deliver the right switch for the particular application we were challenged with."

The high-quality, snap-action switches are ideal for foodservice applications where NSF certification is required. The low-pressure SM switch line is made for pneumatic and hydraulic applications. Both the pressure and vacuum switches are economical and are available in a wide range of configurations.
