Vacuum Purge Adapter

Crescent Design is pleased to announce the release to market of the Vacuum Purge Adapter (VPA). The VPA is the last piece in the puzzle for completely automating burst and leak testing with the HBLT. When interfaced with the HBLT and Smart Manifold, the VPA allows for the fully automatic purging/prepping of catheters. The VPA employs a powerful vacuum pump to remove air from the attached product, readying the product for hydraulic testing. The need to manually prep the catheters with a syringe is eliminated.

Features include:

  • User programmable vacuum to greater than -13 psi (-26 in/Hg)
  • Two user programmable timers for vacuum duration
  • Selectable ports allowing for automatic prep and test of one to ten samples

Benefits include:

  • Completely automated catheter burst and leak testing, including product prep.
  • Repeatable results
  • Increased throughput
  • Eliminates the need for manually prepping catheters with a syringe
  • Catheters can be deflated at the end of a test, if desired
