Medical Tubing and Catheters

Medical Tubing, Catheters, and Balloons are used for a variety of critical procedures. Each have exacting thickness requirements including wall thickness and diameter. Bristol Instruments non-contact thickness gauges offer high accuracy thickness measurement to help manufacturers meet these demanding requirements.

  • Simultaneous measurement of wall thickness, ID and OD with sub micron accuracy
  • Non-contact technique accommodates hard and soft material without damage or deformation
  • Real time results ideal for in-line testing

Measurement results shown in table below are of a typical medical tube, displayed in Bristol's Opti-Cal software. Green boxes show top wall and ID are within spec, and bottom wall (red box) is out of spec.
