Qosina Launches New TPE-Coated-Stem Check Valves
30 July 2020
Qosina has recently released two new patented in-line check valves (#80198 and #80199) to its product line. These two check valves are manufactured in an ISO Class 8 Clean Room; BPA- and latex-free; REACH and RoHS compliant; and suitable for EtO and gamma sterilization.
These valves feature a unique male luer lock outlet with a thermoplastic elastomer (TPE) coated stem that acts as an elastic sealing element. The stem is designed to avoid the adherence of mating surfaces and improve sealing, which will allow for an easy disconnection of the luers. The low mating force significantly decreases the risk of stress cracks at the female luer connection.
