We have supplied our side channel blowers for many years to some of the leading medical ventilator manufacturers. Recently ventilators have been used at the forefront of treating patients during the CoronaVirus pandemic (Covid-19).
Side channel blowers are currently used in portable or permanent respiratory devices. The advantages of the side channel blower design, in both applications, are it’s long life-time and robust design.
Central vacuum systems are used in hospitals and ambulant surgical centres to draw off liquids occurring during the surgeries. A separator is installed in the operating room to separate fine particles from the larger ones. If the operating room is too small, the vacuum system can alternatively also be installed remotely. Our medical vacuum packages are fully certified and can be adapted to your requirements.
Vacuum is used in dental equipment to draw off liquids such as cooling water from the drilling machine, saliva and blood. The side channel blowers used for these applications must be corrosion-proof. Our central vacuum systems are designed for use in dental clinics. They are quiet, small and efficient, with full certification for use with patients.
We supply a number of low pressure compressor solutions for us in Air Beds in hospitals and retirement homes. Air beds are used for bed-ridden patients at risk for bedsores (decubitus ulcer). The use of air can bring about a distinct improvement in patients. Skin can dry and heal better if an air-permeable mattress is used.
At the same time, inflating individual air chambers while deflating others varies the pressure on the skin, thus helping prevent bedsores. Through selective raising and lowering of different areas, air beds can also help position the patient for treatment and personal care. Our Side Channel Blower technology offer a cost effective, low noise solution which is easily installed in to healthcare equipment.
The cushion can be lifted with the help of compressed air to make it easier for older patients to stand up. Chairlifts also help the nursing staff to provide optimal treatment. Side Channel Blower technology is used in chair lifts to provide a highly reliable, compact air solutions that can be used in sensitive patient environments.
In a steam steriliser, the wet steam condenses when coming into contact with the cooler items which are being sterilised. The heat is then released from the steam. This leads to the denaturation of the germs, the molecular structure of their protein being destroyed. Our Liquid Ring Vacuum pumps are used to remove air from the autoclaves chamber and load. Liquid Ring Vacuum Pumps allows the steam to penetrate further into the load, improving the sterilisation capability of the autoclave. Liquid Ring technology are extremely reliable even in humid and wet processes such as this.
