Emergency Oxygen Inlets

​BeaconMedæs emergency oxygen inlets provide a connection for an auxiliary source of oxygen to the hospital in emergency or maintenance situations. The rugged, sturdy construction provides protection from the elements and can be secured to prevent unauthorized access.


Gas Control Panels & Regulators

​BeaconMedæs Support Gas control panels address the requirements for powering surgical instruments. With large control knobs and dual gauge design, changes and adjustments during surgical procedures can be completed with a minimum of delay and effort.


Hose Assemblies & Accessories

​BeaconMedaes hose assemblies are available in a variety of lengths and gas services. They are capable of retracting when not in service and provide versatility where needed at an affordable price.


Lubricated Rotary Vane Medical Vacuum Systems

​BeaconMedaes Lifeline® lubricated rotary vane systems define rugged reliability. The vacuum pumps are single state, air-cooled and direct driven. The compact, simple design allows for low maintenance, quiet operation, and long lasting operation.


Medical Claw Vacuum Systems

The BeaconMedæs Claw Vacuum System utilizes a dry, frictionless, multi-claw technology. The rotors (claw) spin in opposite directions, synchronized via precision gears, creating a highly efficient vacuum system. The rotors never contact the housing or each other, which removes the need for any lubricant or sealing fluid inside the pumping chamber.

Medical Manifolds

Trouble Free Operation

BeaconMedæs Lifeline® manifolds are small in size, have superior flow rates, and eliminate the need for heaters. 

Widest Applications

Beacon Medæs Lifeline® manifolds are available in a variety of configurations and gas services for gas cylinder and liquid container applications.

BeaconMedæs Lifeline® manifolds are available in 340 kPa (50 psig), 690 kPa (100 psig) and 1,240 kPa (180 psig) versions for whatever gas requirement you have. 

Designed for the Long Haul

BeaconMedæs Lifeline® manifolds employ dome biasing to eliminate heaters and maximize flows, and are free of fluoropolymers in the high pressure headers for maximum safety.


Medical Vacuum – Camel Liquid Ring

Most vacuum technologies measure life in terms of “hours” but liquid ring measures in decades. Liquid ring is a simple technology. A rotor spins a sealing fluid (usually water) inside of a cylindrical housing. Since the rotor is offset to the housing, the fluid moves in and out of “buckets” as the rotor turns. The fluid acts as an ideal piston, pumping air virtually without friction. The rotor never touches the housing, so the pump suffers no internal wear.​


Medical Zone Valves & Valve Boxes

Aesthetic Design

BeaconMedæs zone valve box assemblies complement the modern decor found in today’s healthcare institutions. Simplicity of design and the “snap-out” door provide a convenient means of controlling your medical gas system.

Valve Design

Our fully ported brass valves feature three-piece construction, double seals and quarter turn-to-off.


Mega2 Medical Gas Alarms

The MEGA2 draws on the heritage of the very successful MEGA1. Retaining the many features users appreciated, the MEGA2 incorporates numerous updates users have suggested and which updated technology now permits.

If you use a Johnson Controls’ Metasys BAS, only the MEGA2 offers the simplicity of direct compatibility as a Metasys Partner . Want to use another network protocol? MEGA will make that connection too!

MEGA2 is fully compliant with NFPA 99 2002, CSA Z-305.1/draft CSA 7396.

Oxygen Depletion Monitors for Manifold Rooms

​Under the OSHA (Occupational Safety and Health Administration) definition, all manifold rooms can be considered confined spaces : “A confined space has limited or restricted means for entry or exit, and it is not designed for continuous employee occupancy. ... OSHA uses the term ‘permit-required confined space’ (permit space) to describe a confined space that has one or more of the following characteristics: contains or has the potential to contain a hazardous atmosphere…”

NFPA does not mandate confined space monitoring for manifold rooms, but many local jurisdictions are requiring them for manifold rooms, MRI gas storage areas, laboratories that store gases, and other areas containing volumes of asphyxiant gases. These monitors allow the worker to know if the room is safe before entering.

Typically the monitors work by installing a simple sensor with an annunciator in the room and a remote annunciator or alarm outside the room (ideally near the door handle). They give a visual indication of the atmosphere in the room (usually a green light) if all is OK, and a red indicator and alarm horn or buzzer if the room oxygen is low. They include a volt free contact for connection to the master alarm if desired.

BeaconMedæs is recommending the installation of Oxygen Depletion monitors for any manifold enclosure which is not open air. This would include any enclosure, whether provided with natural or mechanical ventilation per NFPA. Exceptions would be enclosures which contain only air, oxygen and/or mixtures with oxygen content equal to or greater than 20% (e.g. Helium-oxygen mixtures, O2 > 20%).

Total Alert2 Medical Gas Alarms

​This alarm network gives you next-generation connectivity throughout your facility and beyond. It’s designed to provide you with the right platform for a totally networked future.

Designed for quick and easy installation. The MedPlus TotalAlert2 Alarm is the easiest of alarms to install and by far the easiest of alarm networks to set up. Everything is pre-labeled for quick identification. The compact back box fits between standard studs and adjusts for the thickness of your wall. You simply install the box, connect power and signal wires, use the drywall cover to protect the box while painting, then install the front panel and connect the ribbon cables.

Less expensive cabling (using your existing network). Unlike alternative systems in which every component must be linked to each other, the MedPlus TotalAlert Alarm uses your existing Ethernet requiring only a link to the nearest Ethernet hub. Instead of pulling countless feet of cable through walls, your connections are short and simple.

Secure digital sensors. Sensors are gas specific and clearly labeled for ease of installation. The case reveals a heartbeat sensor that tells you at a glance whether the transducer is functioning properly – and the system itself is smart enough to alert you to transducer installation problems.


Z MED Medical Air Systems

The Z MED Medical Air System features an all-inclusive, fully engineered modular air system designed in accordance to all NFPA 99 code requirements. The Z MED modules integrate seamlessly, ensuring that your medical air system works exactly as BeaconMedæs designed it to work, every time. Choosing the Z MED guarantees your facility a medical air system with all safety features factory installed.
