Product Availability & Support

3M Gas & Flame Detection is committed to the development of new products to comply with new standards and to meet ever-evolving customers’ needs in fixed gas detection instruments. As such, we must periodically streamline our product offerings to continue to provide services of the highest quality and to remain competitive. An interruption in supply of critical components needed for the manufacture of a product could lead to its discontinuation.

Our product obsolescence policy regarding our fixed product range is as follows:

  • Announcement of Discontinuation to our entire sales and distribution network at least one year from effective date of discontinuation.
  • Parts availability for 8 years from effective date of discontinuation and subject to availability of components.

In addition, during the design phase of new products intended for replacement of existing products, we focus special attention on the maintenance of products in the field and give consideration to the compatibility between new and existing devices.

Please see on the following page for a list of products which will be discontinued. We have also attached a summary of the products which have been previously discontinued and are close to obsolescence.

For more information on these products or their replacements, please contact your sales representative or email us at oldham-support@mmm.com

Thank you for your continued support.

Sincerely,

Michel Spellemaeker
Global Director of Product Management
