AMETEK AMERON Receives FAA-PMA Approval for Control Knob

BALDWIN PARK, CA – AMERON MASS Systems, a pioneer in the development of high-performance aerospace and defense components, has received FAA-PMA approval on a control number, part number M150-900-027.

The control knob is installed on the Mask Mounted Regulator Assembly and switches the regulator from normal mode (on-demand breathing) to emergency mode by simply turning the knob to the emergency position. In on-demand breathing mode, oxygen is delivered by breathing and applying suction through the mask. In emergency mode, the regulator constantly delivers positive pressure at any altitude. The AMERON control knob is identical to the OEM control knob in fit, form and function.

MASS Systems, the OEM division of AMETEK AMERON, specializes in FAA-PMA components for high-rate discharge fire extinguishing and oxygen systems. These components are developed, manufactured and assembled by MASS Systems at its Baldwin Park facility, located in California.
