This week MERET unveiled a new innovative product line of M4L Ballistic Armor Protection Backpacks for commuters and first responders. These products arrive after a number of recent active shooter and terrorist attacks across the globe have heightened the need for greater personal safety for travelers, and first responders arriving to aid the injured.

SANTA ANA, CA., February 21, 2017 – This week MERET unveiled a new innovative product line of M4L Ballistic Armor Protection Backpacks for commuters and first responders. These products arrive after a number of recent active shooter and terrorist attacks across the globe have heightened the need for greater personal safety for travelers, and first responders arriving to aid the injured.

“The world has changed. So we’ve updated our backpacks to provide armored ballistic protection that could save your life if you encounter one of these situations”, said Scott Decker, President of MERET. “It sounds extreme but this is the new reality if you’re going to travel, commute, or even study. Why wouldn’t you want the added protection if you’re already carrying a backpack?”

MERET recently collaborated with Angel Amor, a leader in ballistic armor technology, to develop a consumer daypack and reengineer their first responder bags to include lightweight armored ballistic protection. Weighing no more than a typical daypack, their new DEFENDER PRO Commuter Backpack can withstand multiple rounds including a 44 MAG projectile, defending the vital chest area and potentially saving your life, all while carrying your laptop and personal items.

in 2016 there were 385 mass shootings in which 4 or more were injured or killed in the US according to Gun Violence Archive as of Feb 14, 2017. And according to the FBI’s study of active shooter incidents between 2000 – 2013, there has been a dramatic rise in active shooter events from 7 in 2000 to over 200 in 2012. Aside from public fear of these events, the data supports an increased likelihood that more and more people will encounter these scenarios, and the need for added personal safety could be on the rise.

“There are not many ballistic solutions for the average citizen. The DEFENDER PRO offers a lightweight mobile and portable option for the consumer. In today’s world, threats can occur anywhere, ” said Officer Brian Brown, Loveland Police Department, Loveland CO.

MERET’s OMNI Pro first responder bags also have similar armored protection to allow first responders to advance quicker onto an unsecure shooter scene in order to quickly aid and evacuate the injured. “Our products have always been used to save lives, now we’re hoping to save the lives of first responders as well. ” said Decker.

“Knowing the EMS personnel have ballistic protection allows the entire team to move faster and more secure in an environment that might not be clear of the threat”, said Brown.

MERET, an acronym for Medical Emergency Response Equipment and Technology, produces professional response bags and equipment for emergency markets, fire, police, and the military.

Harrison Valve™ today released a new advanced pressure reduction cylinder valve with dual outlets allowing gas distributors to utilize 4500PSI high pressure cylinders without complication

Harrison Valve introduces the all new VHD Series Dual Outlet Pressure Reduction Valve for 4500PSI High Pressure Gas Cylinders.

Santa Ana, California, March 5, 2015- Harrison Valve™ today released a new advanced pressure reduction cylinder valve with dual outlets allowing gas distributors to utilize 4500PSI high pressure cylinders without complication for the gas consumer allowing utilization of their existing standard gas apparatus.

 “The new Harrison VHD Series dual outlet pressure reduction valve, commonly called a HILO valve, allows more gas volume to be distributed in a similar size gas cylinder package offering a unique cost saving opportunity to increase profits”, stated a Harrison spokesperson. “This exciting valve enables customers to utilize 4500PSI cylinders delivering approximately an extra 150cuft of product delivery more gas in fewer deliveries.”

The VHD Series is equipped with a high pressure 4500PSI port for filling, and a regulated 700-1000PSI gas delivery port allowing customers to use conventional gas apparatus. Both the high pressure and low pressure ports are protected with safety devices to protect the cylinder and downstream equipment.

 “The new pressure regulated valve by Harrison will increase potential use of the higher pressure 4500PSI cylinders, commonly used in Europe, in the US where typically they are reserved for special applications“, Ron Barnett explained. “All the major gas companies are talking about increased productivity and the utilization of 4500PSI cylinders is an easy step towards more gas volume in fewer deliveries”

Harrison designed the current VHD Series for breathing air, oxygen and inert gases for common cylinders with tapered ¾” NGT, oversize and 25E inlet threads. Residual pressure valve (RPV) VHD series protecting the cylinder contents are arriving in the fall. Harrison is accepting orders now and will begin shipping this new exciting product June 2015.

Harrison Valve™ has longstanding experience in designing and manufacturing products for multiple compressed gas markets, critical applications and OEM customers, and its operations focus exclusively on producing the highest quality valve products at uncompromised value. Harrison Valve™ products are produced to meet or exceed the highest US and international standards.

Harrison Valve is a global supplier of precision valve products serving a broad range of applications, industries and markets, which since its inception has produced millions of units in service on 5 continents. Harrison Valve is the fastest growing cylinder valve manufacturer in the world today.

Harrison Valve introduces the all new residual pressure valve (RPV) designed specifically for aluminum cylinders for the beverage gas industries. 

Santa Ana, California, February 15, 2015 – Harrison Valve™ today released a new advanced residual pressure valve engineered specifically for beverage grade carbon dioxide (CGA320) gas service in aluminum cylinders.

The residual pressure cylinder valve is specially designed to reserve 30-50PSI pressure to protect the integrity of the cylinder contents and help assure a contaminant and moisture free environment. Residual pressure valves eliminate the timely process of purging and evacuation of cylinders prior to filling, saving both time and labor.

 “Due to Harrison’s advanced engineering, prototype capabilities, and vertical integrated manufacturing, we are able to take a new customer valve inquiry from concept to production units in less than 75 days“, Ron Barnett explained. “Harrison is excited to introduce this valve to the carbon dioxide market with all of its inherent features. Customers are choosing to upgrade their cylinder fleets to optimize filling, streamline distribution and safely delivering moisture and contaminant free cylinders to their customers.”

Harrison is the only valve supplier who designed a residual pressure valve series to be compatible with all valve manufacturers making a seamless integration with most customers filling equipment. Harrison is accepting orders now and will begin shipping this new exciting product May 2015.
