Fluotec Mark 2
Designed by Bill Edmondson, who set up his own company, Cyprane, at Keighley, Yorkshire for manufacture. Enginerred by ex-BOC Design Engineer Wilfred Jones. A safe temperature compensated vaporizer for the potent agent halothane and the first such vaporizer to be widely accepted. Earlier short-lived Mk 1s were identical apart from minor details such as the fixing of the vapour control dial to the rotational "Barrel", the Mk 2 being a safer version. All Mk 1s were converted to Mk2. The museum version is sectioned to show the bi-metallic temperature compensator in the vaporizing chamber. 1957 - 1970s.
