Gas control innovator, Rotarex SA, has unveiled a new compact, point-of-use regulator in order to free up valuable laboratory bench space.
As a result of its condensed design, the Linestar allows for higher density set-ups with up to one point-of-use every 8cm horizontally.
Solène Garnavault, Marketing Manager at the Luxembourg-based enterprise, commented, “Linestar is extremely compact and can be installed in any lab configuration, including front mounted panels – so there’s no need for rear mounting. This makes Linestar more convenient to use and improves lab productivity as it can be placed in the most efficient and comfortable locations.”
Its design integrates a pressure gauge into the pressure regulator and each model can be equipped with an optional flow control valve. The implementation of a high-contrast colour selection also differentiates the controls from the fixed parts and gives operators 360º visibility of the ¼ turn shut-off valve.
Additional features include improved chemical compatibility, an ‘easy fix’ pre-positioning system and a 60-micron mesh filter to prevent unwanted particles from entering during installation.
Each Linestar point-of-use is 100% tested with helium (He).
