Medical Gas Tubing
OmegaFlex, a global manufacturer of metal hoses, 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 corrections facility that uses medical gas.
