Microwave hybrid processing technology
Medical technology – OEM
Customer is an Italian company specialized in advanced microwave instrumentation for analytical and organic chemistry labs.
Customer’s technical development is the first all-in-one tissue processor with an exclusive patented microwave hybrid processing technology.
Normally, temperature is raised with electrical resistence, but the customer uses micro-waves getting a more precise temperature curve and a fastest process (biopsy). Analysis time is dropped from 10 to 2 hours.
The customer had persistent problems with leakage issues in his applications.
As well as ensuring that the sealing solution should solve the leakage problem, it was also required, that the sealing material should be transparent to microwaves, chemical resistant to process acids and enough elastic to keep the sealing.
1. Media: Kerosene, xylene, 4% formalin, ethanol, isopropanol, isoparaffin at ambient pressure. Vapors of isopropanol and xylene at 600 mBar absolute and kerosene at 150 mBar absolute.
2. Temperature: Max 70°C
3. Pressure: From 60 mBar to 1 bar absolute
4. Size: Special form: 58,0 x 101,5 x 4,8 mm; acc. to customer drawing
Solution and Benefits
Garlock and customer’s specialists discussed issues and solutions. Finally, the perfect solution was identified: GYLON® Style 3504.
GYLON® Style 3504 in a special size and form, according to customer’s drawing perfectly sealed the machines. They replaced all previous seals because GYLON® fulfilled all their requirements.
GYLON® Style 3504 is transparent to microwaves, chemical resistant to process acids and enough elastic to keep the sealing.
