Minneapolis, MN–FasTest has expanded its line of miniature test connectors for medical device leak testing applications. Now offering metric thread options, the ME001 Series delivers mounting and media connection flexibility for testing medical devices, securely sealing ultra-thin hypodermic and catheter tubing.
Capable of sealing outside diameters (OD) down to 0.38 millimeters (0.015″), the ME001 connector is designed for leak testing infusion set and drug delivery devices. The compact connector has a 21.3 millimeter OD (0.84″) to easily mount in locations where limited space is available, and its pneumatic actuation is ideal for soft touch control of delicate components. This design is additionally well suited in automated processes for ergonomics or high production testing.
Complementing the ME001 Series, the ME01 and ML001 connectors have an operational pressure range from vacuum to 500 psi. The easily changed seals provide a sealing capacity up to 12.95 millimeters OD (0.510″). Additional features include aluminum or stainless steel housings, FDA approved seals and lubricant, and replaceable size and seal materials. Plus, the connectors are chemically cleaned and double bagged for added protection. For custom applications, users can consult with FasTest to determine the ideal solution for improving their testing productivity.
