AKO Armaturen & Separationstechnik GmbH develops and designs its valves and fittings using the latest CAD, analysis and simulation software; taking into consideration all applicable standards and directives, such as the Pressure Equipment Directive (PED) 2014/68/EU.

Furthermore, every newly developed fitting must be submitted to an intensive series of inspections and tests in our own test laboratory before it can be released for production. 

Economic development and design is the greatest priority for AKO Armaturen & Separationstechnik GmbH, given the need to use raw material resources and energy considerately.The duty of AKO is to ensure than an environmentally friendly production of valves and fittings takes place, without prejudice towards quality and safety. AKO take into consideration the greatest possible user friendly approach because of our moral and ethical obligations to future generations and all our customers.
