Paratubing is a type of tubing formed by joining two or more round tubes together during extrusion.
FREMONT, CA: Paratubing, also known as parallel tubing, is available in various thermoplastics and designs, each with its own set of electrical qualities and signal transmission abilities. The tubes are made up of numerous single-lumen PVC tubes that are connected longitudinally.
Conjoined tubes are utilized to prevent the need for clips and ties, commonly employed in fluid and gas transmission to organize many tubes. The side-by-side arrangement enables modification for specialized medical uses while also reducing clutter. Each path can be peeled off and attached to the appropriate medical device or equipment, like those needed for suction or irrigation. These co-joined tubes eliminate the need for clips and ties, often employed in fluid and gas transfer devices to organize several independent tubes.
PVC paratubes for medical use can have up to six different fluid pathways. To distinguish the flow path, every path can be custom colored or striped. Every medical device application can be met with standard PVC and non-phthalate PVC tube.
Arterial drills, neurovascular applications, wound treatment, laparoscopic surgery, ophthalmology, and biopsy instruments are just a few of the applications for the tubes.
Tight Process Controls
Bonding tubes together can be done in various ways, each with different levels of product consistency. The tubes must maintain strict control over peel strength consistency and every tube line's inner and outer diameters.
Guaranteeing consistent and stable bond strength and tight dimensions and concentricity criteria is a complex procedure that can generate numerous downstream application issues if it is done incorrectly.
Individual tubes within the paratube can be designed and customized to meet unique requirements. The following customization options are available:
Colors, stripes, and texture can be applied to help identify every tube quickly and efficiently so it can be installed correctly on the device. On the same paratube design, up to eight different colors can be employed.
To provide effective and secure bonding into the connection ports or luers, the tube ends can be separated.
Configurations with up to 8 tubes bonded together.
Each tube can be composed of a different material, specifically designed to accommodate the fluid, gas, or suction it's supposed to deliver.
