Medical Gas Vertical Zone Valve Box
A medical gas vertical zone valve box is a device used to control the flow of medical gases to different areas of a healthcare facility. A vertical zone valve box (VZU) saves space compared to a horizontal zone valve box by taking advantage of the vertical height of a building. By utilizing the size of the building rather than the floor/wall space, VZUs can reduce the overall footprint of the Med gas pipeline system, which can be especially important in hospitals where the area is often at a premium. The box is typically installed near the primary medical gas supply source. It contains several individual valves that can control the flow of medical gases to different parts of the facility. This allows healthcare providers to manage the distribution of medical gases and ensure they are delivered to the right areas at the right time.
