When fluids flow in tubes for patients, the presence of air in the line creates significant problems. To detect the presence of air, Morgan Technical Ceramics uses its piezo ceramics capability in ultrasonic sensors. The Air in Line (AIL) sensors include a bubble detector for a 4-5 millimeter (mm) tube. Operating at a nominal resonant frequency of 1.45 MHz, the Model No: 09168/000 bubble detector can detect a bubble as small as 0.5 μL. Mounted in any orientation, the sensor is designed to be dry-coupled to PVC or silicone tubing. Targeted medical applications include infusion pumps, enteral feeding pumps and dialysis equipment.
