Infusion therapy and pain management device manufacturer B. Braun said today it is offering normally closed large-bore low-pressure check valves through its valve-focused contract manufacturing OEM division.
The valves, offered by Bethlehem, Pa.-based B. Braun, are designed for the intermittent injection of fluids during medical treatment and open automatically when pressure is applied. The newly offered valves prevent fluid backflow into primary IV containers during piggyback hookup or bolus injections.
The bulk-available, non-sterile valves do not contain natural rubber latex and can be integrated into custom fluid administration sets. The valves feature a crack pressure of 22 inches of water maximum and a back pressure of 30 PSI, the company said. A female leur lock option is also available.
