Overview

medical-bellowsThe medical industry relies on quality vendors who value the end product being advancements in the quality of life. At BellowsTech, our titanium edge welded bellows open new opportunities for medical test equipment, bellows pumps, reservoirs, and invasive systems. Titanium bellows are commonly used as invasive pumps to dispense medicine. An edge welded bellows can be manufactured as a heat exchanger for blood pumping equipment to reduce the temperature of blood during surgery.

Our standard diaphragms are available in less than half an inch in diameter. Edge welded technology allows for the bellows assembly to completely compress onto itself, thus creating smaller sizes and greater efficiency. Metal bellows can be used in medical packaging equipment as a shaft cover in a vacuum chamber.

BellowsTech can also assist with non-magnetic bellows for imaging equipment. Our miniature bellows can assist with motion, pressure, and temperature. Contact us today to learn how we can improve the quality of life.

Miniature bellows for medical applications are also available through our parent company, Servometer. Using an electrodeposition process, Servometer bellows are light weight and flexible enough to work in a variety of applications. Servometer electroforms can also be customized for applications such as medical instruments.

Applications


home based dialysis machine

When a pioneering medical technology company located in California came up with the concept for a home based dialysis machine they came to us for help designing the bellows to go inside it. This life-saving machine had to be completely portable allowing patients undergoing dialysis to have improved quality of life by freeing them to travel almost anywhere without being tied to hospitals and medical facilities. It also had to be reliable. Working collaboratively, our engineers and their design team developed four bellows constructed of 316L Stainless Steel with an outside diameter of 1.650”, and an inside diameter of 1.240” to provide the dialysis pump pressure surge absorption. In addition, the bellows were designed for high cycle life (5,000 – 10,000 cycles ) to meet the critical reliability criteria. To View a Video of this application click here.
