Omnifit® Bubble Trap for In-Line Removal of Bubbles in Laboratory Instrumentation

Bio-Chem Fluidics is helping instrument manufacturers in India save time and assembly costs by offering pre-assembled tubing sets to their exact specifications. Kits for complete instruments can be supplied under a single part number, enabling manufacturers to simplify their purchasing and inventory management.

Bubble Trap

The principle of operation is simple: when a fluid containing bubbles flows through the device, any bubbles are forced through a micro-porous, hydrophobic membrane, while the fluid is retained within the bubble trap. Because the membrane function depends on its hydrophobicity, the bubble trap is only suitable for use with aqueous systems.

The unit is quick and easy to connected in-line using 1/4”-28 UNF female threaded ports and fittings such as Omni-Lok™. While the maximum flow rate is dependent upon the amount of bubbles in the liquid, the typical operating range is 0.5 – 2.0ml/min. Up to 6ml/min can be achieved if few bubbles are present in the liquid.
