Pipes & Fittings

Copper Tube

Degreased copper tube is manufactured in the UK under BS EN 13485 Medical Devices: Quality Management Systems. All tube is manufactured under strict quality control procedures to ISO 9001:2008. Our copper tube is CE marked as a class IIa Medical Device 93/42/EEC .

It is designed for use in Medical gas pipeline system installations and incorporates the specialist requirement of the MGPS industry to include cleanliness, packaging and usability required to attain the levels of quality as stated particularly in EN 7396-1 & HTM 02-01.

• Each pipe is cleaned to have a maximum carbon level 0.20mg/dm2
• Each pipe is individually end capped and packed in sealed polythene bags as bundles to maintain cleanliness.
• Chemical composition CU.DHP to ISO 1190-1/CW024A to EN 1412.
• BSI Kitemarked
• Batch numbered for traceability.
• All copper tube from sizes 12mm through to 108mm are engraved/permanently ink marked with the following information: EN 13348, nominal dimensions, manufacturer details, part no., CE Mark, Medical Device
• Directive to 93/42/EEC, time and date of production.
• 25 year guarantee.

Line Valves

Lockable line valves are manufactured under BS EN 13485 Medical Devices: Quality Management Systems and CE marked with notified body British Standards Institute under the Medical Device Directive 93/42/EEC.

They comprise of a 2-piece full bore male threaded nickel plated brass ball valve c/w chrome plated brass ball, blow- out proof stem, stem O-ring, Teflon ball seals and flat face copper stub pipe assemblies. The copper stub pipe assemblies are manufactured from medical gas copper tube compliant to BS EN 13348 and are factory soldered to brass flat face seal housings chemically cleaned and degreased.
The copper pipe stubs enable easy fluxless brazing to the medical gas pipeline system.

The handle is lockable in open or closed position to prevent unauthorised operation of the valve.
All line valves are factory tested for tightness and leakage, batch numbered and individually end capped and bagged in clear polythene bag to maintain cleanliness.
