Dialysis Machine Application

Customer Issue

A dialysis machine manufacturer contacted Custom Valves because they were having problems building a balancing chamber that could achieve a balancing accuracy of less than 0.01%  – crucial requirement in dialysis treatment. 

Project Requirements

  • Balancing accuracy less than 0.01%
  • 30 mL volume
  • 10-year life expectancy

Custom Valve’s Solution

Custom Valves worked closely with the manufacturer to review its balancing chamber design and development procedures to understand why the balancing chamber was failing to meet crucial system requirements.

The Results

Custom Valves provided the customer their balancing chamber with 8 premounted valves. The plug and play balancing chamber not only solved the balancing accuracy issues but also saved the customer money by eliminating retooling costs.
