Halcyon Announcement Important Halcyon Recall Product



Announcement made for all industry professionals, retailers and divers.

The highest priorities of Halcyon Manufacturing are the quality of our products and the safety of our customers. We are providing details regarding the voluntary recall of select Overpressure Relief Valve (OPV) Springs.

Halcyon Manufacturing Inc. in cooperation with the US Consumer Product Safety Commission has initiated a voluntary recall of select Eclipse, Evolve, Explorer, Pioneer and CCR35 buoyancy compensators (BCDs) manufactured between January, 2006 and September, 2008. In addition, select Halcyon inflatable devices (Lift Bags, SMB’s, DAM’s, Surf Shuttles and Diver Lift rafts) may also be affected.

Please visit our website at www.halcyon.net/opv-recall for more detailed information and video to support inspection of your Halcyon product.

These BCDs or Inflatable Devices could develop excessive corrosion or rusting problems with the stainless steel Over Pressure Valve (OPV) spring, causing the spring to fail and the BCD or Inflatable Device to leak through the OPV.

It is unlikely that most of these units will experience any problems since the potential defect is limited to a very small portion of the total number of OPV springs used during this time period. However, given the potentially serious implications all OPV springs should be checked to minimize risk or inconvenience to Halcyon customers.

BCDs manufactured after September, 2008 are not included in this voluntary recall. Please reference press release and website information for details on how to identify the BCD serial number.

Inflatable Devices do not have serial numbers and should be checked based on customer purchase date if possible. If there is any doubt as to the serial number or date of purchase, Halcyon recommends inspecting the OPV spring at the request of the customer.

Thank you for your prompt attention to this important matter and we apologize for this inconvenience.
