A dialysis machine manufacturer contacted Custom Valves because they were having problems building a balancing chamber that could achieve a balancing accuracy of less than 0.01% – a crucial requirement in dialysis treatment.
- Balancing accuracy less than 0.01%
- 30 mL volume
- 10-year life expectancy
Custom Valve’s Solution
Custom Valves worked closely with the manufacturer to review its balancing chamber design and development procedures to understand why the balancing chamber was failing to meet crucial system requirements.
Custom Valves provided the customer their balancing chamber with 8 premounted valves. The plug and play balancing chamber not only solved the balancing accuracy issues but also saved the customer money by eliminating retooling costs.
