There are several situations where induction may be a good choice for catheter tipping. Let’s examine some of those situations to see how the process works.
Induction is one of the safest catheter tips that you can use. When you use a catheter tipping procedure you will find that there is minimal risk of fire and explosion. There are only two risks that you will find in the induction process, one is the presence of an open flame and the other is the build up of metal shavings on the tip of the catheter. Both are pretty rare, but they are still important to know about.
With induction catheter tipping, the power generated by the RF electricity creates the heat in the stainless steel or gold plated mold, without touching the mold itself or even using a flame. The catheter tip is made out of the small plastic tube which is inserted into the heat-treated die or mold in order to form the hollowed corners. This plastic tube is then heated by the RF power in the circuit. This makes the plastic tube conductive and as a result it heats up the inside of the plastic tube and it cools down the surrounding area.
As this process takes place the temperature of the heat tube will remain constant. This allows the plastic tube to conduct heat from the circuit as well as direct the heat towards the edges of the plastic tube. This causes the heat generated to heat the plastic tube in the process of forming the hollowed corners. This heat is then conducted towards the catheter tip, heating it up to a temperature where the plastic tube has no problem conducting heat.
Don’t Burn The Tip
If there is an open flame or open electrical device near the tip of the catheter, you should never use a catheter tipping procedure using that device as it could cause a fire hazard. Always use only clean electrical devices near the catheter tip as these devices are not likely to contain lead or other hazardous material which could lead to an accidental fire.
The induction process has many other uses apart from simply forming the hollowed corners in the catheter tip. The process is also used to help increase the efficiency of the process, especially with a very narrow catheter tip.
Another reason why the process is used in induction is because the induction can heat up the catheter tip to a higher temperature than the surrounding environment. In this way the catheter tip can be heated to a more efficient temperature for easier insertion into the body. In addition, if the catheter tip is left in the body for a long period of time the internal heating will warm up to an acceptable level.
One thing to note is that the induction process can take a little longer than using a simple blowout to form the catheter tip. This is because it takes a longer amount of time to heat up the catheter tip. You will therefore need to make sure that you have a backup source of power available.
Forming The Tip
To perform the induction procedure the induction coil must be placed on the catheter tip. This coil will need to be placed onto the opposite side of the wire. This means that the coil will need to be placed on the other side of the wire as opposed to the end.
In order to ensure that the coil is placed on the other side of the wire you will need to hold the catheter tip in one hand and use your thumb and index finger to push the tip of the tip on the coil. in the opposite direction.
You should then release your hand from the catheter tip by pressing on the coil until the coil is located on the other side. of the wire. You should then do the same for the other end of the catheter so that the coil is placed on the opposite side of the wires as the tip.
As long as you have performed the induction correctly the catheter will form the plastic tube at a higher efficiency rate compared to the catheter tip when it is in its original state. If you need to heat the plastic tube to a more efficient level, you can always use a small blowout to heat the tube. However, if the catheter is a larger one you may need to use a blowout, which is designed for this purpose.
