Next generation of Alpinox® pressure regulators
The Alpinox® device is directly connected to a standard gas cylinder valve, reduces the pressure and sets the flow of medical gases so that it can be safely delivered to the patient. The new generation has been entirely redesigned to improve usability.
The pressure gauge and the flow selection indicator have been repositioned from the top to the side to improve readability, particularly when it comes to taller gas cylinders. The gauge itself has been replaced by a ‘direct drive’ manometer that is much more resistant to shocks and vibrations. Both regulator body and pressure gauge are fully protected by a robust and easy-to-clean plastic cover. In addition, the overall design is 30% lighter than the previous version, increasing usability in emergency transportations, hospital and homecare applications. The Alpinox® new generation benefits from the same technology than Rotarex medical VIPRS. With millions of VIPRS in service around the globe for the last 20 years, the end-user can trust a reliable and proven technology for a 10-year lifetime.
The device is designed to be highly compatible with oxygen and other medical gases. It can be ordered without or with pressure outlet (quick connect), making it connectable with another flowmeter or medical equipment. Additionally, the regulator has a 12 positions flow selector and flow is uninterrupted even between flow settings. It is also MRI compatible since its design is free from magnetic components.
Further configurations are available for purchase: the yoke version designed for pin index valve, the column version as alternative to handwheel for flow selection, and two fixed outlet pressure versions. All configurations are CE marked and each regulator is as well labelled with UDI (Unique Device Identifier) and a data matrix to ensure a perfect traceability.
