Custom Valve Solutions: Dental Devices
With its medical equipment industry experience, Humphrey has particular experience in the miniaturization of valves and subsystems for liquid, vacuum and high pressure applications.
This knowledge has developed dental sedation devices to enhance the reliability and performance for dental gas analgesia. Over the years, Humphrey has worked as a custom valve manufacturer for clients to develop products for oxygen concentrators, respirators, blood gas analyzers, surgical instruments and more.
Humphrey’s custom valve assembly for a dental gas analgesia system enabled the customer to redesign the device to enhance its reliability and performance.
The equipment enables the attending physician or dentist to set both the percentage of nitrous oxide and the total flow to a desired level of sedation and flow.
A special hand pump, also developed by Humphrey, can be used when moving the heart assist device untethered from the drive console.
