The UK based Composites company Bindatex has announced it is supporting the UK government’s call for manufacturers to assist in the urgent capacity of ventilators to combat the COVID-19 Pandemic.
The company has reconfigured its production to begin die-cutting discs for filters to assist with the urgent production of ventilators for the NHS. At present, Bindatex is working with its customers, manufacturing the parts, but are also able to support other manufacturers by providing the filters.
The filters of a ventilator play a number of important roles. They protect the patient from any sort of airborne particles which might be in the gas supply systems or the ambient air, they protect the ventilator itself from the air being exhaled by the patient and they protect the physician and co-workers from exhaled pathogens which did not make it to the patient.
