Just like a drill won’t work with a nail, the type of pressure sensor you’re using for a given application matters. What performs well when measuring oil and gas, for example, may not be the best fit for hydraulics.
A medical OEM designer wanted to design a waste management system that would fit into their existing footprint while also maximizing the amount of waste held by the bottle. They also needed to protect operators from biohazardous material and reduce the amount of time spent on the task of waste removal.
Could you use an extra engineer on staff? If you’re working with a supplier who is a designer and a manufacturer, that’s exactly what you gain. We call this “engineer-to-engineer collaboration,” and it can be extremely useful, especially when developing a new medical OEM design. Partnering with a knowledgeable supplier with fluidics expertise also helps keep you abreast of the latest advances in fluidics technology and provides you with their extensive knowledge of the field. As such, they help you quickly see through design challenges and identify approaches to solve them quickly.
When you think of the fluid management of the current or future design of your medical device, what challenges are you faced with overcoming? Do they include reducing development time, minimizing equipment footprint or maximizing the amount of liquid removed from your bottle?
The current land speed record is 763.035 mph. The BLOODHOUND SSC Project hopes to set a new record of 1000 mph.
Even if you’ve never actually seen a solenoid valve, you’ve definitely come into contact with a machine that relies on one. These small devices are used in everything from home heating systems to commercial car washes, swimming pools to dental equipment.
When it comes to measuring liquid levels in tanks, few instruments are as reliable as the float switch. So what is a float switch? These handy devices can help measure metrics such as presence of absence of liquids in a tank, vessel, or container with dependable accuracy.
Not all of us respond well to pressure, but that’s exactly what happens with a pressure transducer. If you’ve wondered how they work, these devices convert pressure into an electrical output signal such as voltage, current, and frequency. Sensors, meanwhile, allow the transducers to proportionally react to the applied force of the pressure.
