A major provider of kidney dialysis services and associated products has purchased a fourth in-line process viscometer from Cambridge Viscosity. The company uses the viscometers to monitor the viscosity of polymers in blood filter manufacturing.
The company is using the viscometers to monitor the viscosity of the blending process in both new polymer mixtures and in re-capturing polymers for re-use in their processes. The polymer manufacturing process involves temperature increase and cool-down cycles that complicate viscosity tracking during the process. Before purchasing the viscometers, technicians had to pull polymer samples, send them for lab for analysis and wait for the results. Now in-process viscosity is measured real-time with accurate, immediate results, which has improved throughputs and lowered costs while maintaining the company's world-class high quality standards.
Cambridge Viscosity, a leader in advanced laboratory and production viscometer systems, provides automated viscometers used worldwide by pharmaceutical and medical device companies to optimize their product and process performance. Cambridge's global reach is important for providing application engineering support and service wherever and whenever needed.
