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 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.
GVS air vents are manufactured with fully automatic over-molding technology that guarantees superior quality in manufacturing parts with high cavity molds.
Our wide range of available media (PTFE and acrylic membranes) provides high flexibility and covers most market requirements.
Because of our wide choice of pore sizes and varying filter media, it is possible that the GVS air vents will be compatible with an existing or new device. Available are membrane sizes are from 0.02 to 10 µm.
