New Heliox DISS regulators provide cost effective solution for low flow Heliox therapy, high pressure gas delivery by eliminating need for two separate regulators
CARLSBAD, CA – B&B Medical Technologies has introduced two new medical grade Heliox regulators with DISS fittings. The compact and versatile Heliox 70/30 DISS and Heliox 80/20 DISS regulators will help medical facilities reduce costs by eliminating the need for two separate regulators for low flow Heliox therapy and high pressure gas delivery devices.
Designed for use in critical care, special procedure units and emergency departments, the B&B regulators are easy to set up with either 70/30 or 80/20 Heliox H cylinders. Calibrated for delivery of precise flow and MRI compatible, no conversion or calibration of flow is needed to determine accurate Heliox flow. Easy to set up on H cylinders, the permanent O-ring design eliminates the need for a washer and provides hand tight seal at the yoke connection.
The Heliox 70/30 DISS and Heliox 80/20 DISS regulators combine a calibrated “click style” flowmeter with barbed nipple for flows up to 25 Lpm plus an additional 50 psi male air connector for ventilator and other high pressure applications. Each regulator has a built-in unique color coded tank pressure indicator with 0-3000 psi operating range. The CGA yoke connector has a special inlet filter and all-brass construction in the high-pressure zones. The regulators are single stage, piston type with backpressure compensation and internal relief valve. The Heliox 70/30 DISS Regulator and the Heliox 80/20 DISS Regulator provide a complete system for simultaneous and independent delivery of metered constant flow Heliox and regulated high pressure gas.
The Heliox 70/30 DISS Regulator (part number 11373) and the Heliox 80/20 DISS Regulator (part number 11382) are available from finer specialty care distributors.
