Flexibility and quality are the two important factors which need to be kept in mind when innovating medical device for any purpose starting from fluid transfer to sealing. Silicon properties are not just hygienic but they are also less costly material available in the market for medical applications. Thus silicon is used in manufacturing tubes used by the health care sector.
Silicon tubes are used by the health care professionals in several applications. Hospitals use it as feeding tubes and catheters. These tubes are also used in laboratories for blood test. Manufacturers select high quality silicon to make sure that the tubes meet the requirement of the health care industry. The tubes are not just non-toxic but they are also heat resistant. These silicon tubes can withstand temperature anywhere between -116 degree C and 310 degree C.
These tubes are available in various sizes. You can specify the length of the tube that you need and the manufacturers cut and make sure that your requirement is fulfilled. When we talk about the features apart from being heat resistant the tubes are also transparent. You can see the liquid flowing through it. This means that in hospital if the tube is used for feeding the patients then the nurses can see if the flood flow speed is perfect or not. Due to the visibility the nurses understand and have an option of adjusting as per patient's condition. These tubes avoid bacteria growth and they do not have any kind of odor.
Apart from the health sector these tubes are used in several other applications by different industries too. Parma, electrical, thermal power stations and even chemical industries use these silicon tubes for several purposes. Some widely used silicon manufactured products that you will find the market are:
Silicone Transparent Tubing are used in hospitals and other health care centers for feeding and transferring ointments and injection.
Inflatable Gaskets are used as door sealers, sterilizers, and also in many equipments used in food processing industry.Silicone Bellows and Diaphragms are widely used by the automotive industries in hydraulic machines.
Silicone Cords and Strips are also used in hospitals for transferring liquids. They are also used in injection.
