Extended-life filter valves

Our extended-life filter valves use a multimaterial construction to protect hospital waste removal systems from both liquid contaminants and smoke damage.

The combination of hydrophobic fibre smoke filters and self-sealing porous plastic filter valves enables the filter-valve to act as a suction canister vent, smoke filter and automatic shutoff valve. This protects against dangerous liquid contaminants while eliminating premature suction canister shutoff in surgeries with high smoke output – saving time and reducing distractions.
