        TP032

        Transducer protectors (TP) are used in hemodialysis blood lines to keep the blood side of the circuit separated from the machine side, and to prevent contamination of the machine by the blood flowing through the circuit. This contamination could be very dangerous and can lead to patient cross contamination with hepatitis B or other virus. Transducer protectors let air pass while preventing the blood from passing through. TP’s incorporate bacterial retentive membrane (0.2μm, if not otherwise requested).

        Transducer protectors must guarantee a sufficient air flow to provide immediate reaction time if there is a change in patient blood pressure. If the TP does not react quickly enough, this can be very dangerous for the patient.

        Property

        GVS transducer protectors are also suitable as air or gas vents. Venting characteristics are achieved by using hydrophobic membranes. GVS has a full range of transducer protector products which incorporate either highly hydrophobic PTFE or hydrophobic acrylic membranes.

        GVS transducer protectors are manufactured with fully automated assembly technology, and the sealing is done without any glues or solvents – they are ultrasonically welded. Automatic testing machines keep the manufacturing process consistent and guarantee superior quality.

        The wide range of available media (PTFE or acrylic membranes) provides high flexibility and covers almost any requirement of the market.

        Because of our wide choice of shapes (Flat TP, TP "bell" shape and TP "dome") and the very different type of materials and media used, the GVS transducer protector line is suitable in any blood line or other medical device.

        Available membrane sizes are from 0.02 to 10 micron. Pressure isolator with flexibe diaphragm are available for open heart surgery.
