Valve Wrench and Bracket (SJ-13-0042)
Description St. Jude researchers have developed a new wrench and reinforcing brackets for a valve with 1/16 ports that can be used during the installation of fittings on valves without damaging (twisting) the ports. As a result, this saves money by preserving the valve bodies. In some applications, bending the valve body port while the connection to the delivery line is being tightened can cause radioactive gases leaks, and requiring valve replacement.
