What is the application of the sensor in the dialyzer?

Sensors play an important role in dialysis machines, and the platform technology of the sensors has benefited designers a lot.

In order to achieve the same fluid temperature and body temperature to ensure the safety of patients, the temperature management solution and pressure sensor are used in the dialysis machine. Purchasing heater components and pressure sensors from a single component manufacturer instead of finding multiple temperature technologies and sensors from multiple suppliers can streamline manufacturing processes and supply chains, simplify assembly and reduce design time. Give developers more time and energy to research other systems. Platform-based sensing provides complete components that meet regulatory requirements, enabling systems to meet appropriate quality standards.

The heater assembly heats the blood and dialysate to the body temperature before re-entering it into the patient. In this process, the heating controller can precisely control the temperature of the dialysate; the board-mounted pressure sensor can measure the flow rate of the fluid leaving and entering the patient, and obtain the dialysate and venous pressure without hindering the fluid flow. reading.

In order to achieve a combination of a temperature sensor and a temperature regulating device, the heater assembly is designed to take into account a variety of heating techniques and materials suitable for the design needs of different dialysis equipment. The design of these dialysis machines often requires different types of heating techniques due to the different sizes and temperature ranges of the heater components.

The heater assembly should be available in a variety of sizes, power, mounting options, and temperature monitoring and temperature control. Because different heater assembly configurations (flat, transparent composite and high temperature) and manufacturing materials (silicon, polyimide film, polyester indium tin oxide and other dielectric materials) are available in the same dialysis machine application. Produce very different application options.

Accurate measurement of dialysate and venous pressure is critical to patient safety during dialysis treatment. Pressure sensors require precise detection of fluid and blood flow pressure to ensure that pressure is maintained within the applicable range to avoid overpressure or underpressure conditions. Because either overpressure or low pressure can cause rupture of blood vessels or air bubbles in the pipeline.

The best way to get more precise and faster response times is to place the sensing element as close as possible to the liquid. This requires the use of pressure sensors with liquid media compatibility to reduce the complexity and cost associated with sensor protection design.

In addition, pressure sensors should be available in a variety of mounting options to suit different applications. The sensor platform can be installed in a remote location or in a product with limited internal space, such as by providing cable assembly options. This way, the designer can accurately position the sensor where it can be accurately measured.
