SAB valves and filters on „Auguste Piccard“

The submarine „Auguste Piccard“ (Mesoscape PX-8) is a milestone in Swiss industrial history. More than 50 years ago –during EXPO64 in Lausanne- it carried more than 33.000 passengers on Geneva lake 150 m below the surface. Valves, Filters and HP-Air manifolds were supplied by SAB. According to Mr. Spinnler,  the engineer in charge, our valves did their job over the years without causing any problems. After the EXPO 64 the submarine was sold to Canada and used worldwide. In 1999 the submarine was brought back to Switzerland where it has been refurbished. It is currently displayed in the “Verkehrshaus” in Lucerne.
