Many medical devices require vents to keep their internal pressure balanced with the ambient pressure. This avoids deformation of rigid plastic containers and interruptions in flow of fluids. Our product protects the fluid path from bacterial contamination (must maintain sterility).
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.
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 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.
