Fort Collins, Colo. – February 10, 2009 – Value Plastics, a premier OEM supplier of precision plastic compo- nents, introduces SCV Series check valves for medical devices. These new check valves come in multiple medical grade materials and sizes to meet a diverse set of fluid management applications. The check valves, which are being unveiled at Medical Design & Manufacturing West (MD&M West), Feb. 10-12, 2009 in Anaheim, Calif., are ideal for medical device designers focused on infusion, drainage and irrigation applications.

Following on the introduction of DCV Series double check valves in January, 2008, SCV Series products are available in anti-siphon or one-way check valve configurations in a variety of materials and end fitments. The valves feature low priming volume, ease of removing air bubbles during priming and operate in any spatial orientation. The patented design of the latex-free platinum-cured silicone diaphragm prevents sticking and assures trouble-free operation. All materials satisfy USP Class VI and ISO 10993 criteria. End fitments include .118” (3.0 mm) x .161” (4.1 mm) and .122” (3.1 mm) x .165” (4.2 mm) tubing, and male and female luer tapers complying with ISO 594-1 and 594-2 standards. All products are suitable for EtO or gamma sterilization, and autoclavable options are available on special order. All SCV Series check valves are suitable for use with air or liquids. Jim Pisula, Vice President, Marketing for Value Plastics, explained that the company has received many requests for check valves from their customers, saying, “Given this high degree of interest and a unique feature set, we knew the time was right to expand our product offering.”
