Airtec GmbH & Co.Kg Safety Systems who manufacture the CYPRES AAD unit, have extended the service lifetime from 12.5 years to 15.5 years. This lifetime extension only applies to units which have been manufactured after the 1st of January 2017. For this longer service life, the maintenance requirements will be every 5 years and 10 years after the date of manufacture.
Therefore, any CYPRES AAD units manufactured after the 1st of January 2017 must adhere to the five-year maintenance cycle. Any CYPRES AAD Units manufactured prior to the 1 st of January 2017 remain at a 12.5-year lifetime and must still adhere to the four-year maintenance cycle as per BPA Safety Information Notice 02/16.
Note: This is a BPA Requirement and not an Airtec GmbH & Co.Kg Safety Systems requirement.
