OmegaFlex, a global manufacturer of metal hoses, has announced MediTrac as the world’s first corrugated medical tubing (CMT) for distribution of medical gases. Unlike rigid copper tubing which is installed in numerous brazed sections and elbow joints to accommodate a facility layout, MediTrac semi-rigid tubing installs in a single, bendable length that can be routed around existing structures.
Made from copper alloy and sold in continuous-length rolls, MediTrac includes a fire-retardant jacket and axial swaged brass fittings. Developed for the healthcare industry, the product can be used in hospitals; ambulatory care centers; dental, physician and veterinary clinics; laboratories; and any facility that uses medical gas.
MediTrac is non-flammable, non-reactive, and can distribute medical air, oxygen, nitrogen, nitrous oxide, carbon dioxide, and medical vacuum. The product connects with all K, L and DWV medical tubing and is sized from one-half to two inches in diameter. Underwriters Lab (UL)-tested, MediTrac meets all 2018 National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) 99 requirements and has an ASTM E84 rating less than 25/50.
MediTrac was introduced at the AHR Expo, Jan.22-24, 2018, booth #4451, at McCormick Place in Chicago. A press conference convened on Jan. 22, 2018 at 3:00 p.m. in the center’s press room. To learn more, visit www.meditrac.us.
