- Why is EVOS™ Ci safer than other valve models currently available on the market?
EVOS Ci comes with a specially designed guard that not only protects the valve against general damage, it also makes it easier to grip, lift and move. In addition, EVOS Ci comes with a new fast-acting lever that allows users to see from a distance and from any angle whether the valve is open or closed. In the event of an emergency, users can quickly and easily close the valve in a single action. In the closed position the seal becomes leak tight eliminating the risk of inadvertent leaks. The gas supply is automatically stopped if the lever breaks off. The safety interlock button enhances safety further, eliminating the risk of a valve being opened accidentally. An in-built flow restrictor and a robust brass design round off the safety features.
- Why is EVOS Ci easier to handle?
EVOS Ci operating at 300 bar offers the customer a lighter, shorter package due to its higher working pressure in comparison to its equivalent 200 bar counterpart, which means users can work with fewer, smaller cylinders for the same volume of gas. The churning knob also makes it easier to move cylinders around and the EVOS Ci guard features easy-to-grip arms for improved handling. The guard is spacious enough to allow easy attachment and removal of the regulator – even with gloves. In fact, EVOS Ci can even be lifted with a crane if need be.
- How does EVOS Ci improve efficiencies?
EVOS Ci comes with a live content gauge so users can read the actual pressure in the cylinder without connecting a regulator. This means users can always use the total contents of their cylinder and experience fewer unexpected interruptions to their work. EVOS Ci lever-actuated technology means the user benefits from two new functions:1. The safety interlock button eliminates the risk of accidental
2. There are only 2 positions - ON/OFF - thus eliminating the risk of
slow gas leaks due to the valve not being closed properly.
- What standards does EVOS Ci comply with?
The EVOS Ci valve has undergone tests according to standards such as ISO 10297, ISO 11363-1, ISO 15996, ISO 5145 and ISO 11117. In fact, we successfully tested EVOS Ci above and beyond the recommendations outlined in those standards.
- What gases can be used with EVOS Ci?
EVOS Ci supports the full range of industrial gases – oxygen, carbon dioxide, hydrogen, acetylene and inert gases.
- What gas packages can be used with EVOS Ci?
EVOS Ci supports all gas packages ranging in size from 20 to 50 litres. With the ability to function at 300 bar, the EVOS Ci valve now gives users the opportunity to use 33-litre cylinders offering the same capacity as a 200-bar 50-litre cylinder – with the added benefits of reduced height, reduced weight and improved handling.
