SAM 18 - Low Flow, Low Vacuum

Product code: SAM18/01010101
The SAM 18 aspirator is a top quality surgical suction unit designed for low flow, low vacuum applications. The SAM 18 has been specifically designed for use in intensive care to provide chest or lung drainage, in recovery rooms where unconscious patients lose their gag-reflex and in burns and paediatric wards where continuous low flow/low vacuum is required. It has a strong reputation for reliability, ease of operation and is one of the most used units in the medical world today.

The SAM 18 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 18 incorporates an autoclaveable SAM 2 collection vessel fitted with float valve systems, providing automatic shut-off to avoid over flow. The SAM 18 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 18 on request. 

The unit also includes the MQ8 oil-free diaphragm vacuum pump that requires minimal maintenance and helps prevent cross-contamination. The MQ8 also benefits from an enclosed crankcase for quiet operation and a skeleton frame, shaded pole motor with long life sealed bearings and thermal protection.

The SAM 18 has multiple safety features including overflow control valves and an internal hydrophobic filter to minimise the risk of contamination.

The unit is fitted with a bacterial filter externally but, will be 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.

PLEASE NOTE:
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.
