Simulating breathing air flows

Measurement technology in the medical industry

The flow generator for calibrating flow sensors (air) for lung function diagnostics is a current system highlight.

The test system is particularly characterized by the generation of stable flows in the low flow volume range. In the medical industry it is used to adjust or calibrate flow sensors, for example to measure human respiration. The human breathing velocity is very fast – the use of the piston system makes it possible to generate high flow rates and to regulate and, if necessary, adjust them at the same time.
