Safety Caps Eliminate Fluid and Gas Mishaps

Escaping toxic gases, accidental chemical spills, and other liquid handling laboratory hazards can be prevented by using specially engineered bottle caps developed by Bio-Chem Valve Inc. and Omnifit Ltd. to promote safe, controlled fluid and gas flow. These caps, designed in a variety of configurations, help control dangerous, costly, panic-ridden laboratory mishaps that often compromise the health and safety of staff and result in lost time and money from emergency cleanup, downtime, and loss of product.

The simple and versatile 'T' series cap prevents the escape of gaseous vapors from entering and contaminating the work environment while maintaining a steady flow equilibrium. With an optional integrated check valve and filter, the cap prevents the introduction of unwanted, harmful ambient debris, while the combined air inlet and check valve configuration enables airflow into the bottle to replace the removed liquid, while preventing particulate contamination.

The ‘Q’ or ‘C’ series caps prevent measurement mistakes while transferring specific liquids. Fitted with optional on/off valves, these caps allow for foolproof, precision operation of individual fluid lines to carefully control a chemical reaction. Because these safety valves can be shut with precision, the caps are useful for transporting and handling fluids to and from individual stations within the laboratory.

All three safety bottle models feature an anti-twist cap that allows the bottle to spin freely within the cap to prevent tubes from twisting, so there is no need to disconnect fluid lines before unscrewing the cap.
