All products used in medical equipment must meet the strictest requirements for reliability, quality and service.
Sterilization of various devices and equipment is a vital necessity in all medical practices, hospitals, laboratories and pharmaceutical facilities.
Sterilizers run through 3 distinct cycles
Air serves as an isolation layer and prevents the hot steam from actually coming into direct contact with the objects to be sterilized - which is why it must be extracted from the vessel. For fractionation, air pressure is reduced to 100 mbar (27"HgV) and hot steam is then injected. This procedure is repeated 3 to 4 times.
Steam is injected into the vessel at a pressure of 2 to 3 bar (30-45 psi) and a temperature of 121 to 134°C (250 to 275°F) and kills all the germs. The vacuum pump does not run during sterilization.
When the actual sterilization is complete, the vacuum pump expels the air from the vessel until a final vacuum of 50 mbar (28.5"HgV) is created, thus drying the sterilized objects.
Respiratory devices for patients with lung disease are equipped with our smallest gas ring blowers. They compress the air for breathing, then filter the air, and enrich it with oxygen or medication if so desired. A valve serves to regulate the patient's respiratory pressure as a function of his breathing cycle and treatment.
Air beds are used for bedridden patients at risk for bedsores (decubitus ulcers). The use of air can bring about a distinct improvement in patients. Skin dries and heals better with an air-permeable mattress. At the same time, inflating individual air chambers while deflating others varies the pressure on the skin, thus helping prevent bedsores.
Through the selective raising and lowering of different areas, air beds can also help position the patient for treatment and personal care.
Whenever there is a risk of breathing in contaminated respiratory air, protective suits can help guard against infections. An overpressure is generated and piped into the suit via the appropriate tubes, thus preventing germs from penetrating the suit if it is not completely air-tight.
Vacuum systems are used in almost all dental therapies to draw off saliva, secretions, tooth material and cooling water. Both central and decentralized vacuum systems are used.
Gas ring blowers generate a vacuum in the suction tube and in the cuspidor next to the dental chair to suction away saliva, tooth material and other biological substances.
Central Vacuum Systems
Hospitals and outpatient surgical clinics use central vacuum systems to suction the fluids produced by operations. A separator in the vicinity of the surgical unit then separates coarse and fine particles and disposes of them properly. Because space near the surgical unit is often limited, the vacuum system can also be installed at a greater distance.
