Spirax Sarco Inc.

Workers Exposed to Asbestos

Spirax Sarco Inc. is a steam traps manufacturer with factories based in the US as well as the UK. Previously known as just Sarco, they changed their name in the 80s and rebranded. Like many other companies during the period up until 1980, they have used asbestos in their products thus putting their employees at serious health risks.

If You Are a Former Spirax Sarco Inc. Employee, You Need to Pay Close Attention to Your Health

The 40s brought rise to asbestos use in the US when manufacturers discovered it to be a magical component for their products. Heat resistant, fireproof, with outstanding strengthening qualities and very cheap and accessible, it was perfect for a variety of products, but especially those that needed to withstand high temperatures, like steam traps, pipes, strainers, pressure reducing valves, temperature regulating valves, pumps, and other similar products. Spirax Sarco has used asbestos in manufacturing their products as well, putting their workers at serious health risks.

If you are a former Spirax Sarco employee, you need to pay close attention to your health, as asbestos exposure can lead to serious diseases such as mesothelioma, asbestosis and lung cancer. These diseases can take a long time to develop and start showing signs so it’s very important to regularly check on your health. In an effort to promote early diagnosis, we are offering screenings free of charge to former Spirax Sarco employees. Contact us for any further information you might need.

Victims of Asbestos Exposure Are Entitled to Receive Compensation

Ever since 1920, there have been studies linking asbestos exposure to serious respiratory diseases and some types of cancer. But despite the warnings manufacturers still chose to use it and failed to properly warn and protect their employees. When asbestos is processed and disturbed, it releases microscopic fibers that contaminate the air. These fibers can be inhaled or ingested and if so, they remain trapped in the lungs leading to inflammations that can later develop into serious diseases.

If you or a family member have been diagnosed with an asbestos-related disease due to your time working at Spirax Sarco you may be entitled to receive compensation. We have been working with asbestos cases for over 25 years, helping thousands of victims file claims. Our team can help you as well. Contact us for any further information regarding this matter and we will provide the assistance you need in order to get compensated.
