Duraglide Dry Lubricant lubricates assemblies that slide, pivot, or twist, eliminating stiction and improving actuation in catheters, cutting tools, staplers, and hypo tubes. Using polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE) particles applied in a dispersion fluid, the non-migrating, fast-drying fluid leaves a smooth, slippery, uniform coating on any surface. ISO 10993 certified, Duraglide is compatible with most metals and plastics, penetrates complex shapes, and improves device performance by reducing actuation forces up to 25%. It’s hostile to bioburden and compatible with sterilization processes.

Tecna leak testing solutions

Tecna leak testers verify integrity of medical products, performing leak and flow tests as well as volume and resistance (burst tests) for sealed products at interception and under vacuum. Tecna’s primary instruments include:

  • Provaset T2 – Intuitive touchscreen human-machine interface (HMI) performs leak tests with an operator or small programmable logic controller (PLC) using a pressure decay technique
  • Provaset T3L (above) – Larger touchscreen, advanced programming features for gage and differential decay, mass flow, burst, sealed component testing; for use with an operator or PLC; many advanced communication protocols, drivers
  • Delta TM3 – Pneumatic modules customize leak and flow test system; compact modules work with HMI or PLC instead of screen; up to 16 independent testing channels
