MORGAN TECHNICAL CERAMICS (MTC): Piezo-Ceramic Fluid Management Sensors

This company now produces sensors for medical ultrasound devices using its advanced piezo-ceramic materials. Medical sensors for infusion pumps, enteral feeding pumps and dialysis equipment are manufactured to ISO 13485 standards at MTC’s new medical sensor manufacturing facility in Southampton, UK.

“Our application engineers have been extremely successful in designing a standard range of sensors using our PZT (lead zirconate titanate) and composite piezo materials,” said Tony Beswick, general manager. “We can also tailor our designs to meet customer-specific performance specifications, housing geometry, material or tubing configuration.”

MTC’s piezo ceramic air-in-line sensors include a standard bubble detector for a 4-5 mm tube, which features housing geometry that has been designed to minimize the footprint with a short flexi-circuit for easy connection via a standard zero insertion force connector. Air-in-line sensors can also be customized to meet specific housing geometry, color, adaptation to specific tubing, and inclusion of any special functional features. They are available in a variety of forms, from bare-tuned piezo-ceramic discs or plates to a fully functional packaged sensor.
