Open solvent bottles bear the risk of spilled chemicals or escaping solvent vapor. Omnifit® Labware bottle caps and accessories help prevent these problems and offer the security of a safe and dependable solvent delivery system. The bottle caps can be either used on the supply side to provide a closed delivery system for the safe intake of solvents or for safe disposal of solvent waste, providing a closed waste system. An optional check valve and filter enables pressure equalization and prevents vapor escape.

What are the benefits of a closed system?

· Safety - closed solvent supply systems prevent vapor leakage
  into the atmosphere, protecting lab staff from exposure to toxic
  fumes

· Contamination control - prevents ingress of particulates

· Protection of mixing ratios - prevents the evaporation of
  solvent, leading to altered concentration of reagents or ratios
  of mixtures
Where should you use a closed system?

· HPLC - mobile phase handling, both solvent supply and waste
  collection

· Fermentation or culture preparations - processes where
  sterile transfer of culture media or addition of reagents to closed
  systems are required

· Laboratories - working in the areas biotechnology, life sciences,
  analytical and clinical chemistry

ANTI-TWIST DESIGN

All Omnifit® Labware bottle caps are equipped with a so-called "anti-twist" feature, allowing the body to spin freely within the cap.

The benefit of this design is that tubes no longer become twisted while the cap is fitted or removed from the bottle. Therefore fluid lines do not have to be disconnected before unscrewing the cap.

The inner body of each Omnifit® Labware bottle cap is made from PTFE, providing the highest chemical inertness. PTFE also creates a reliable seal to the glass bottle with no need for extra seals or O-rings.

DIFFERENT OMNIFIT® LABWARE BOTTLE CAP RANGES

T-Series with Luer Ports

· Simple and easy-to-use with no need for fitting nuts and ferrules
  (for 1/8" OD semi-rigid tube). Tubing passes straight through the
  cap for a continous fluid path.

· Luer ports take standard male Luer components, including a
  range of accessories for different tubing types and sizes.

· Optional integrated check valve and filter enables pressure
  equalization whilst keeping the system closed and preventing
  particulate contamination or evaporation of expensive or harmful
  chemicals.

· An optional Luer connection solvent vapor trap can be used to
  contain/control vapor egress into the environment.

Q-Series with ¼"-28 UNF Threaded Ports

· Optional valves offer easy on/off control of individual fluid lines,
  ideal for selecting flow or for closing off lines prior to removing
  caps to change or refill solvent bottles.

· Robust threaded ports for standard ¼"-28 UNF threaded fitting
  nuts and adaptors enable a secure connection, ideal for repeated
  connecting/disconnecting.

· Optional screw-in check valve and filter accessory enables
  pressure equalization while keeping the system closed and
  preventing both particulate contamination and evaporation of
  expensive or harmful chemicals.

T-Series Waste Caps

Omnifit® Labware T-series solvent waste caps are designed to suit a variety of common laboratory waste vessels. Due to the fact that waste systems require positive pressure to be applied in pumping waste solvent into the bottle, a vent port is required to allow pressure equalization. In order to control vapor in the environment, released via the vent port, precautions for vapor containment should be taken, such as placing the system in a fume hood or connecting a vapor trapping unit. To control vapor escape:

· A solvent trap (part no. 009CF-TW) should be screw-fitted into the ¼"-28 UNF threaded vent port. As liquid enters the bottle by gravity
  flow or pump, vapor can pass through the trap, equalizing pressure. Dangerous solvent vapor is neutralized by the activated carbon
  contained in the unit.

· The integral break-through detector indicates by a simple color-change when the vapor trap needs to be replaced. Once the active
  medium within the vapor trap has become saturated with solvent, the color change strip turns red.

· Any unused ports must be sealed using a Luer plug (part no. 009LP) to prevent solvent vapor escaping directly into the environment.
  Note: The push-fit nature of the vapor trap and Luer plugs allows only low positive pressure to be applied to prevent Luer connections
  from being loosened.
