Testing Process & Services
After attaching the device to the Power Injector, a constant flow of the test fluid is injected and the resultant pressure is measured. Common test fluids include contrast or a mixture of water and glycerin to mimic the viscosity of the fluids to be used in the clinic.
The burst pressure and location can be determined by measuring the maximum pressure that the device can withstand during injection. Flow rates are then measured at the rate typical for clinical use. Maximum flow rate is recorded prior to device burst, or at the maximum pressure put out by the Power Injector.
