  • Publication number: 20210085852
    Abstract: A filter unit for blood and blood derivatives comprises a body defined by two injection-moulded half-shells of thermoplastic polymer material, there being present between said half-shells a cavity containing a filtering element having two opposing flat faces, an inlet opening and an outlet opening made on the opposing outer surfaces of said body communicating with said cavity. Each of said half-shells comprises a projecting perimetral flange, the flanges of the overlapping half-shells being welded together to form a flange of the body of the filter unit and connect the two half-shells together, the filtering element being wholly contained within the cavity of such body and pressed by shelves projecting into such cavity from each half-shell in the vicinity of its perimetral border and on the two opposing faces, said shelves retaining said filtering element in a stable position within cavity, said thermoplastic polymer material being yielding and semi-rigid.

  • Publication number: 20130066272
    Abstract: A medical infusion filter including a box body defined by at least two half shells coupled to define an internal cavity divided into at least two chambers by at least one hydrophilic filtering membrane. These chambers include at least one first or entry chamber and at least one second or exit chamber. The at least one first or entry chamber connected to an entry conduit for the medical fluid originating from a corresponding container. The at least one second or exit chamber connected to an exit conduit. At least the first or entry chamber is within a first half shell presenting at least one aperture within which a corresponding hydrophobic membrane is positioned. The at least one aperture enables a differential air flow rate to pass towards the exterior of the box casing as a function of distance of the casing air exit zone from the entry conduit.

  • Patent number: 8070733
    Abstract: A device for regulating the flow rate of a medical liquid includes a body provided with elements associated with corresponding parts connected together but torsionally free, at least one of the parts including a plurality of recesses acting as flow regulator able to modify the flow rate of the liquid directed towards the patient by rotating the parts about a common axis of rotation. Between the parts a seal element enables the recesses to be selectively connected together via communication elements, so achieving flow rate regulation. Transverse sealers are provided between the seal element and at least the second part of the parts which are interconnected but torsionally free. The transverse sealers preventing the escape of liquid from the recesses and from the body of the device following a relative movement or misalignment between the parts in a plane perpendicular to the axis of rotation or along this latter during flow regulation or following any angular misalignment of the parts relative to the axis.

  • Publication number: 20040104160
    Abstract: A filter comprises a box casing in which at least one cavity is present between an outer element of the casing and an inner surface presenting a plurality of channels on which a corresponding hydrophilic filtering membrane lies, the cavity communicating with a conduit for entry of the fluid into the filter and the channels being connected to a conduit for exit of the fluid, in the outer element there being provided through apertures with which hydrophobic membranes are associated. A surface bounded by the shortest possible ideal closed line, which totally comprises all the hydrophobic membranes, contains substantially within its interior the projection thereon of the useful hydrophilic surface of the hydrophilic filtering membrane, this enabling the filter to be employed in a plurality of spatial positions during its use.

  • Patent number: 6536278
    Abstract: A transducer protection device, particularly for hemodialysis processes, which comprises a first element and a second element made of plastics which are coupled coaxially with respect to a common axis and respectively comprise a first tubular connector and a second tubular connector which are blended with respective flanges which are coaxial to the common axis; the flanges are coupled to each other along their peripheral region by ultrasonic thermal bonding; the device has a recess formed frontally on a first one of the flanges, the recess being coaxial to the common axis and being suitable for accommodating, in a fixed arrangement, a semipermeable membrane by imbibition of melted plastics along a circular border region by the thermal bonding provided on a circular ridge which is shaped complementarily to the border region and protrudes frontally from the second flange so as to achieve bonding between the first and second flanges and the membrane.
