Vials

Mininert Valves

Mininert push-button valves are leak-tight closures that minimize contact with the sample. Only PTFE and glass are in contact when used with a glass vial. They are easy to use.
1. Push the green button to open the valve
2. Insert the needle through the septum and take a sample
3. Withdraw the needle
4. Push the red button to close the valve

Benefits:
• Leak-tight closure - your sample will not have any contact to the atmosphere
• Simple installation - no tools are required to use these valves
• Replaceable septum - this part is very easy to replace by pushing the new one into the septum location in the valve.

Mininert valves are available for screw-cap and crimp-top vials. The screw cap version is available in 13, 15, 18, 20 and 24 mm sizes. The crimp-top version, for 20 mm I.D. glassware, slides into the neck of the vial and has a threaded flange which is turned to secure a tight fit.
