The value of medical devices for the treatment of a wide variety of patient conditions is indispensible. Doctors and other healthcare professionals increasingly depend on medical devices to help diagnose and treat patients. Because of the importance of such patient treatment devices, its imperative that the medical devices operate correctly and reliably.
A number of medical treatment devices generate a lot of heat as they operate. Since many of these devices are also conveniently small, the lack of physical space can cause the temperature in the medical device to rise to unsafe levels, reducing the life span of the equipment and affecting its performance. For this reason, a cooling system is a critical part of ensuring the smooth functioning of the medical treatment devices. Cooling fans play an important role in the performance of patient medical treatment devices. Cooling fans are used to move the heated air away from the medical devices and bring in cooler air from the outside. Many of these cooling fans spin with the help of an electric motor and create a unidirectional air flow. With the continual changes in the design and deployment of medical treatment devices, cooling fans from NMB have also evolved to meet the needs of the medical device industry, including greater scalability and reliability.
There are two types of fans which are most often used in patient treatment devices: AC axial fans and DC axial fans. As these fans differ in their specifications and performance, the right fan for your particular medical equipment application will be determined by the requirements, design, and configuration of the medical device.
