Should My Flow Meter be ROHS/REACH Compliant?

The RoHS (Restriction of Hazardous Substances Directive) and REACH (Registration, Evaluation, Authorization, & Restriction of Chemicals) standards are critical environmental and health regulations from the European Union. RoHS, established in 2003, limits the use of ten hazardous substances in electronics and electrical equipment. REACH, introduced in 2007, regulates the production and use of chemicals and their impacts on human health and the environment. Both standards are mandatory for companies wishing to sell applicable products within EU countries, and many industrialized nations, including numerous US states, have widely adopted these regulations.

Companies, especially those exporting to the EU or Great Britain, must ensure their products, including all components like flow meters, comply with these regulations. For OEMs, all parts used in their products should be RoHS/REACH compliant. When purchasing a flowmeter or similar products, verifying compliance is essential, and compliance should be clearly stated in the product datasheet or confirmed through the manufacturer. Proteus Industries Inc., for example, offers the 6000 Series Flow Meter that meets these standards, ensuring both environmental safety and high-performance reliability for various industrial applications.
