Windkessel Reservoir, In-Line Luer , pair


A windkessel is a plumbing component that serves to dampen pressure/flow pulsations. Pulsation dampening is accomplished by introducing a compressible air reservoir into a physiological solution flow circuit. Our windkessels are constructed using a Luer tee fitting that can be connected in-line with your vessel perfusion circuit. The top arm of the Luer tee has the air-filled reservoir that serves to dampen flow/pressure pulsations of the fluid going through the main line of the tee. Windkessels can be introduced on the downstream side of a FC Flow Control Pump, as well as on the upstream side of a PS-200 Pressure Servo Pump in constant pressure/constant flow systems.  Includes two windkessels.
