About Inline RF Machine
If you’ve ever donated blood to a hospital or blood bank, or you provided a urine sample for testing purposes, then you’re undoubtedly familiar with the plastic bags used by the medical profession to collect bodily fluids. These intravenous (IV) fluid bags typically contain plastic tubes projecting from the top that facilitate the flow of the fluids into the bag. An essential component of the IV bag manufacturing process is the creation of a tight seal to hold the tube securely in place and prevent fluid leakage. An effective method for producing this seal is the implementation of radio frequency (RF) sealing technology.
What Is RF Sealing Technology?
One way to think of an RF sealing/welding system is to compare it to a microwave oven that “cooks” plastic instead of food. An RF sealing machine and a microwave oven both generate heat via high-power radio frequency waves. The major difference is that, with RF sealing, plastic material is placed in a pressing machine equipped with two dies that compress the material to create the desired shape and complete the seal. The combination of the pressure from the dies and the heat produced by the RF generator welds the plastic material together. With the microwave oven, food is placed between two electrodes that remain stationary during cooking.
Using an Inline RF Machine for Medical Bag Sealing
Medical bag sealing can be accomplished with an inline radio frequency press. An RF inline press is primarily designed for thermoplastic welding/sealing applications and features integrated RF technology. This produces an extremely strong, impenetrable weld that typically takes about a minute or so per bag to complete. A high-performing RF inline press can work well with a wide range of thermoplastic materials including PVC, PET, polyurethane and many others.
