ATEQ is Available to Provide Consulting, Leak Testers and Flow Meters For Medical Tubing Testing Applications.
Medical tubing is an essential component for many medical and pharmaceutical devices. The tubing manages the drainage and fluid of liquid in medical equipment like IVs, catheters, pumps, respitory, anesthesiology and bioharmaceutical lab equipment. Medical tubing can vary in size, material and performance specifications. Tubing can be made of plastic, rubber or metal depending on the performance properties like hardness, flexibility, abrasion resistance and durability. If the tubing material is incompatible, a patient may not get the proper drug or amount because medicines flowing through the tubes could be chemically altered or stick to the tubing wall. It is essential to test the tubing to ensure that that the tubing flows properly and does not leak.
ATEQ has developed solutions for hundreds of different medical tubing flow testing applications for well known medical companies over the last 40 years. Whether you are flow testing plastic, rubber or metal tubes, ATEQ can work with you to provide efficient leak or flow testers for tubing and develop integrated tubing production testing solutions.
Typically, ATEQ recommends flow testing medical tubing with a pressure decay tester like the Primus F620 leak testing instrument with a pressure testing specification range of 2 to 5 psi and leak rate spec range of 1.0 to 2.0 cc/min. The testing time specification depends on the volume of the tube.
