SAM 17W - Medium/High Flow, Low Vacuum

Product code: SAM17W/01010101
The SAM 17W aspirator is a top quality surgical suction unit, designed for ward use. The unit provides medium/high flow, low vacuum and is specifically designed for evacuating air from the body that can accumulate between the lung and the chest wall (pleural space) which often occurs following surgery or after a chest wound. Specifically, it can be used for the re-inflation of lungs and where continuous low level suction is required.

The SAM 17W has the choice of being produced as a Static or Mobile unit. A Static unit is designed to grip to the surface with its rubber feet and stay in one location whereas, a Mobile unit is produced with wheels and an extended handle bar, making it extremely easy to transfer the Suction Unit from one location to another, especially in an emergency.

As standard, the SAM 17W incorporates an autoclaveable SAM 2 collection vessel fitted with a float valve system, providing automatic shut-off to avoid over-flow. The SAM 17W is also available with a choice of disposable collection systems including our own SAM 2 Collection Jar, along with Serres, Abbott and Vac Sax. Other disposable collection systems can be fitted to the SAM 17W on request.

The unit incorporates a MQ25 oil free diaphragm vacuum pump that requires minimal maintenance and helps prevent cross-contamination. The MQ25 also benefits from an enclosed crankcase for quiet operation, IP44 totally enclosed fan cooled (TEFC) permanent capacitor motor with long life sealed bearings and thermal protection.

The SAM 17W has multiple safety features including overflow control valves.

The unit is fitted with a bacterial filter externally but, will provided with a hydrophobic filter if required.

MGE are happy to work with Medical Institutions with specialist requirements for suction equipment. These requirements can be as simple as producing tailor made stands for equipment, right up to the development of specific medical units. Please contact us if you would like to discuss your requirements and see how we can assist in providing you with a solution.

Whilst we endeavour to hold as much stock as possible, as these units are specially made to order, there may be occasions where the lead time may be longer than 2 days (particularly if you are ordering more than 5 units at once). If this is the case, we will ensure to contact you as soon as possible to inform you of the exact lead time so you know when to expect your delivery. Thank you for your understanding.
