Laboratory Service Fittings
Use this 3-part SimpleSpecs specification template to specify gas, water, and other laboratory service fittings and accessories used in conjunction with laboratory casework.
Laboratories are complex environments that require a wide range of fittings and accessories to ensure efficient and safe operation. Gas, water, and other laboratory service fittings and accessories are essential components that are used in conjunction with laboratory casework to create a functional and effective laboratory space.
Gas Fittings and Accessories
Are used to supply gases such as oxygen, nitrogen, and carbon dioxide to laboratory equipment. These fittings include gas valves, regulators, and hoses that connect the equipment to the gas supply. Made from materials that are resistant to corrosion and high temperatures, such as brass and stainless steel.
One important gas fitting used in laboratories is the gas manifold. The gas manifold is a system of valves and regulators that allows multiple gas lines to be connected to a single gas source. This simplifies the gas supply system and makes it easier to control the flow of gases to equipment.
Water Fittings and Accessories
and accessories are used to supply water to laboratory equipment, including sinks, faucets, and other water dispensing systems. These fittings are made from materials that are resistant to corrosion and can withstand high temperatures, such as brass and stainless steel.
One important water fitting used in laboratories is the vacuum breaker. The vacuum breaker is a device that prevents backflow of water into the laboratory water supply. This is important to prevent contamination of the laboratory water supply by chemicals or other contaminants.
Other Laboratory Service Fittings and Accessories
In addition to gas and water fittings, laboratories also require a wide range of other service fittings and accessories. These may include electrical outlets, data ports, and air supply fittings. Designed to integrate with laboratory casework and other laboratory components.
One important accessory used in laboratories is the fume hood. A fume hood (not specified in this section) is a ventilation system. Its used to remove hazardous fumes and vapors from the laboratory. The fume hood is connected to the laboratory’s ventilation system and is designed to provide a safe working environment for laboratory personnel.
In conclusion, gas, water, and other laboratory service fittings and accessories are essential components. They are used in conjunction with laboratory casework to create a functional and effective laboratory space. These components must be carefully selected and installed to ensure the safety and efficiency of laboratory operations. By using high-quality fittings and accessories, laboratories can ensure that their operations are safe, efficient, and productive.
