Syringe Pumps

Customer: Medical Device Manufacturer
Application: Syringe Pumps

Issues:

  • Premature seal failure
  • Instrument Downtime

Solution

  • Integrated spring-energized seal with HiMod® 550 custom-shaped energizer and a custom ultra-high molecular weight polyethylene (UHMWPE) jacket.

A team of Trelleborg Sealing Solutions experts developed a solution that reduced downtime from 28% to less than 1% for applications where a day of downtime can cost between US$50,000 (€34,500) and US$100,000 (€69,000).

This allowed the syringe to keep running even when dispensing harsh reagents that would damage other pumps and resulted in a design capable of reducing preventative maintenance.
