VALIDATION OF THE PNEUMATIC TRANSPORT SYSTEM
Within the context of the validation process of the pneumatic transport system, we make pneumatic flow measurements and video recordings using a CSC carrier: a Camera-Sensor-Check carrier.
It is not the dispatch speed itself that is relevant to the quality of the products to be sent, but the accelerations, decelerations, shocks and vibrations. These aspects are measured through a built-in sensor in our CSC carrier.
The entire pneumatic transport system is measured using the CSC carrier. Analysing these measurements allows you to pinpoint the section in your system that is the most susceptible to risk, thus enabling the number of tests to be conducted throughout the hospital with patient material to be reduced to a minimum. The hospital delivers the blood samples and conducts quality tests on the most high-risk section, e.g. by conducting a comparative test run between ambulant transport and pneumatic transport.
The sum of our reports, in which the most high-risk section is determined, and the results of the tests conducted on this, is then applied as a validation benchmark for the entire pneumatic transport system. If the results of the most high-risk section are found to be in order, the entire system can be validated.
The video recording provides accompanying information about the condition of the tubes, enabling targeted measures to be taken if the tests show any need for improvements.
The speed in itself is not as important; what is more important are any sudden changes in speed. We know from experience that the transport of blood samples generally takes place at a speed of 4m/sec.
