        IV Catheter Vents

        Many medical devices require vents to keep their internal pressure in balance with the ambient pressure. This avoids the deformation of rigid plastic containers and interruptions in flow of fluids.

        Our product must protect the fluid path from bacterial contamination (must maintain sterility).

        One good example of this is maintaining sterility of an IV set and glass solution bottle, and to equalize the internal pressure of the bottle via a vent on the spike. Venting characteristics can be obtained by using hydrophobic membranes.

        GVS has a wide range of air vent products that incorporate PTFE or hydrophobic acrylic membrane for this function.

        Properties

        GVS air vents are manufactured with fully automatic over-molding technology that guarantees superior quality in manufacturing parts with high cavity molds.

        Because we use many different raw materials for the frames and/or housings of our products, it is possible to choose assembly methods of the mechanical sealing (interference fit) or bonding (standard with cyclohexanone, methyl cyanoacrylate, or methyl ethyl ketone).

        Available air vents have female Luer locks or male Luer slip connectors.
