Breathing circuits are an assembly of components that connect an anaesthetic apparatus, such as a ventilator to a patient’s airways in a healthcare setting. They consist of a number of parts and are typically defined as a single use product.
It is imperative that the atmosphere within a breathing circuit is regulated to avoid potential hazards (such as condensation) whilst remaining pliable at the same time. Heating wire is a suitable solution for such an application as it is flexible in shape and provides continuous, uniform heat along its entire length.
Product performance and consistency are two vital characteristics in the healthcare industry in which life safety is critical. We have a rich history in this product category and have experience in supplying heating wire in other applications, such as in electric blankets. We utilise the knowledge we have amassed since the 1960s in the design, construction and operation of the heating wire we manufacture today. By doing this, Thermocable provides continual reassurance and peace of mind to our customers whose loyalty is a testament to Thermocable’s expertise in this area.
We supply heating wire on large reels or cut to length with or without terminations as specified by our customers. Please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any questions on our flexible heating wire or if you would like to find out more information.
