Attwood receives CARB certification for products


The California Air Resources Board has granted Attwood Corporation an executive order (#RM-18-001) for its pressure relief valve used in the accessory manufacturer’s integrated pressure relief fuel systems.

The certification says that boats equipped with Attwood’s Pressure Relief Valve Deck Fills and Direct Fills are CARB compliant for the 2019 model year. The valves also meet Environmental Protection Agency certification standards.

Attwood’s pressure relief valve is a component of the 99DFPV Series pressure relief deck fills and 99TDFPV100 pressure relief direct fills. The valve is integrated into the cap of the deck fill to provide diurnal emission control and optimal overpressure relief and safety.
