    I was wondering if anyone has used this system and maybe we could get them to come to our fall conference to demonstrate how this system works.

    Their presentation would be interesting. I would like them to take questions from our members at a meeting.

    I don't think they want us seeing their proprietary system that in my opinion is dangerous since it essentially cut's into a live medical gas system.

    I'm guessing they have some means to accomplish below. I'd love to see the process. Breaching or Penetrating Medical Gas Piping. Positive pressure patient medical gas piping

    and medical support gas piping shall not be breached or penetrated

    by any means or process that will result in residual

    copper particles or other debris remaining in the piping or

    affect the oxygen-clean interior of the piping. The breaching or penetrating process shall

    ensure that any debris created by the process remains

    contained within the work area.

    Philadelphia should be a great location for them

    We see their process every time we do a verification - I've not had the feeling that they'd want to keep the process to themselves.

    Rocky, good points.

    I would add. Tube ends shall be cut square using a sharp

    tubing cutter to avoid deforming the tube. The cutting wheels on tubing cutters shall be free

    from grease, oil, or other lubricant not suitable for oxygen service. The cut ends of the tube shall be permitted to be

    rolled smooth or deburred with a sharp, clean deburring tool,

    taking care to prevent chips from entering the tube.

    Steve, When you verify SmartTap, do you note that the tubing was not cut according to the code?
