Medical Shut-off Valves

Technical Overview

To meet safety requirements, the gas supply to operating rooms etc must be fitted with a device to allow instant shut off. To allow maintenance the gas supply must be controlled by section. To achieve the demands of safety and maintenance, shut-off valves should be fitted in every main line, riser and branch line in the pipework system.
The valves are degreased and blown clean
They can be equipped with unions to be soldered to the copper piping
Before delivery each valve is individually leak tested
The ball is sealed with washer of PTFE
The stem is sealed with two silicon O-rings or PTFE washer
The valve housings are sealed with an EPDM quality O-ring
No maintenance - the ball valve does not need services, when necessary the whole valve is exchanged
