We provide the healthcare industry with a number vacuum and blower solutions that are used both as components within medical equipment and for the supply of suction from a centralised vacuum system. One such device that we have supplied for many years is our side channel blowers for movement of air in medical ventilators. Recently ventilators have been used at the forefront of treating patients during the Coronavirus pandemic (Covid-19).
A ventilator is a device that is designed to provide mechanical ventilation for patients who need support to breath or cannot breathe on their own. Ventilators have a small blower component which provides air flow moving breathable air via a mechanical pumping operation into and out of the patient's lungs. They are used across healthcare including intensive care units (ICU), at home and in transit during emergency medical care at accident sites or in transit to a medical facility.
Side channel blowers offer compact and quiet air supply for medical ventilators. They can be used in portable or half stationary devices for the treatment of chronic pulmonary disease, the patient is supported in breathing. Side channel blowers are also used in respirators. The advantages in both applications are the long life-time as well as the robust design. The blower can also be used in mobile applications such as ambulances and helicopters due to its lightweight, compact and durable design.
