Laguna Niguel, CA, July 10, 2009 – Interface Catheter Solutions balloon tubing deionizer ION-1000 uses a stream of ionized air to eliminate electrostatic forces that attract dust and to remove foreign particulates from the surface of balloon tubing. The reduction of particulates on the tubing will decrease defects such as drag lines, dimples, and embedded surface particulates. Clean balloon tubing will increase balloon quality and production yields. Interface uses the ION-1000 in its own balloon production with substantial improved yield results.
The ION-1000 Balloon Tubing Deionizer has an integrated submicron filter system with water separator for clean dry air compatible within a clean-room environment. The ION-1000 is motion-sensor activated to initiate air flow when the sensor is engaged and stops automatically based on a predetermined setting. It is a simple compact system that works quickly and accurately.
