Extended-Life Filter-Valves

Essentra’s extended-life filter-valves utilize multi-material construction to protect hospital waste removal systems from both liquid contaminants and smoke damage.

Our engineers combine hydrophobic fiber smoke filters with self-sealing porous plastic filter-valves – producing a patent-pending advancement that simultaneously acts as a suction canister vent, smoke filter, and automatic shutoff valve.

This protects against dangerous liquid contaminants while eliminating premature suction canister shutoff in surgeries with high smoke output – saving time for healthcare professionals and reducing distractions in the OR.
