Sweden-based equipment manufacturer Gas Control Equipment (GCE) is gearing up for the launch of a number of new products this quarter.

The company is introducing several new medical gas equipment products in the coming months, which will all be featured at its booth at the Medica International Trade Fair in Dusseldorf, Germany from November 20-23.

New products to be launched include a range of Medical VIPRs, Hospital Terminal Units, Ambulance Panel systems, and the latest generation portable concentrator for use in the global market.

Specialty Gas Report understands that the GCE group sees plenty of potential in both the medical sector and in high purity/specialty gas equipment applications.

The newly revealed next generation Medical VIPR from GCE has been designed for ultimate safety, ease of use and enhanced lifetime, capable of regulating up to 300 bar gas pressure and extensively type-tested over and above all ISO standard and ASTM G175 standards. The valve is also available with optional electronic accessories for ease of use when controlling cylinder gas consumption and cylinder tracking.

Meanwhile, the GCE has already started to release for sale its new generation of terminal units for hospital and ambulance use, the GCE MediUnit. The main design characteristic of this product is its simplicity; it is easy to clean, and easy to maintain by installers and users alike.

The Ambulance Panel II is the next generation of ambulance panels marketed under the GCE Sabre Medical brand, designed for permanent installation and use in road ambulances. The modular design concept, developed after years of experience, allows unrivalled flexibility for customization as its modules are infinitely variable incorporating gauges switchovers, outlets or integral flow selectors.

Finally, the new Inogen One® G3 portable concentrator is smaller, lighter than its predecessors and produces more oxygen per kg than previous models. Light enough to be worn care-free by the active oxygen user, there are no tanks to refill and no concerns about running out of oxygen for the patient.
