The right manifold can make your surgical office run efficiently and headache-free.  

If you’re the Director of Nursing you see the right manifold as an integral part of the critical gases supplied into your facility.

Manifold systems provide the reliable performance you need to stay on top of your gas needs. Pros and Cons of a Gas to Liquid manifold.

  • Fewer chances for leaking product
  • Can lessen space in gas room but with more supply
