“Sherwood’s new GV-MRI valve series meets unique requirements for the medical market and is just one example of how Sherwood Valve is listening to customers and designing custom products to meet specific market needs,” said Dino Sciullo, VP, Marketing.

The medical valve design uses many features from its current flagship Global Valve (GV) product line adapted to MRI environments. The Sherwood GV-MRI valve meets the ASTM F2213 requirement for a 3-Tesla magnetic resonance (MR) environment. The GV-MRI special construction utilizes materials that reduce the magnetic attraction of valve when installed on an aluminum cylinder. This provides peace of mind for hospital personnel and patients who as a result are able to maintain their accessibility to medical gases where access to medical oxygen is limited. All GV-MRI valves are certified oxygen clean and available in straight thread inlets for aluminum cylinders.

Sherwood’s GV-MRI Series is part of our Global Valve line which is world-renowned for quality and reliability. This new valve series is made in the USA and currently in production and available through your Sherwood authorized Distributor.
