Asbestos Exposure at Armstrong International
Armstrong International is a privately held, family-owned company with roots that date back to 1900. With more than 3,000 workers around the world, the company has made a name for itself in designing and manufacturing products aimed at reducing emissions and improving energy efficiency.
It has focused its business on steam and condensate products, hot water solutions, heat transfer systems, refrigeration equipment, flow measurement solutions, and humidification equipment.
For years, Armstrong International used asbestos components in its products but failed to warn workers of the danger.
Asbestos is a known carcinogen that causes mesothelioma, lung cancer, asbestosis and other serious respiratory diseases. Workers who were exposed to microscopic asbestos fibers decades ago while working with or in the vicinity of Armstrong International products are just now being diagnosed with these life-threatening diseases.

Armstrong International and Asbestos Exposure
Table of Contents
Armstrong International produced and sold steam traps that contained asbestos components such as valves and gaskets. These traps were used in industrial steam heating and power systems to automatically filter out condensate and non-condensate gases efficiently, without releasing steam.
Armstrong International products were used in a variety of industries, including by:
- Public utilities
- Chemical companies
- Mining corporations
- Paper and pulp mills
- Industrial facilities
- Food processing plants
- Oil companies
- Ships and shipyards
Workers who installed, maintained, and repaired asbestos components in Armstrong International products may have inhaled airborne asbestos fibers, which can lodge in the lining of the lungs and chest cavity, leading to mesothelioma and other serious diseases. Even those who did not work directly with asbestos components could have been exposed to the dangerous material when working in the vicinity of asbestos dust.
There is no safe level of asbestos exposure. Anyone who worked with or around Armstrong International asbestos products may have been exposed to the deadly carcinogen and is at risk of developing mesothelioma, lung cancer, asbestosis, or another asbestos-related illness. These diseases can develop even decades after the initial exposure.
If you or a family member has been diagnosed with an asbestos disease, you can pursue financial compensation from the asbestos company that put you in harm. Talk to our skilled New York asbestos attorneys at Belluck & Fox, LLP today to learn about your legal rights.

- Physical and emotional pain and suffering
- Funeral and burial expenses (if you have lost a family member to an asbestos disease)
