Interface Catheter Solutions Announces New Hydraulic Pressure Testers for Balloon Catheters and Components


Laguna Niguel, CA, March 1, 2010 – Interface Catheter Solutions Hydraulic Pressure Testers provide critical hydraulic test functions for balloon catheters and components, including tubing and balloons. The HPT-500 and HPT-1000 are simple to operate and easily programmable with storable test protocols. Operators can choose from a comprehensive list of options to create tests (including burst, leak, fatigue and compliance) that are appropriate and specific for the devices to be tested. In addition multiple pressure ramp options are available including linear, stepwise, fatigue and custom.

The system can be programmed to provide a multitude of pressure tests, such as:

  • Step tests for burst testing balloons or tubing
  • Incremental test with relaxation for balloons and catheters
  • Fatigue (cycle) tests with specified number of pressure cycles
  • Single pressure tests for balloon loading with constant pressure (creep test)

Accessories are available with the HPT-500 and HPT-1000 including a temperature controlled water bath, balloon-compliance fixture and a compact thermal printer.
