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.
