Generally, enclosure protection vents protect a variety of devices by preventing the ingress of liquid and solid contaminants, while still allowing gases to pass freely. The venting of enclosures typically provides a cost-effective solution that improves the life of the gaskets and seals used in the enclosure/device. Optimally, these vents are manufactured of ePTFE membrane and provide the following advantages:
Venting technology can offer these advantages to a wide variety of markets, such as: automotive, consumer electronics, medical electronics, medical bags, packaging, and outdoor electronics. These markets all present unique environments that must be considered in the design and application of a venting solution to achieve proper protection.
Venting for consumer electronics encompasses acoustic applications, sensor applications as well as battery systems - all of which possess unique performance requirements met by select manufacturer’s venting technology.
We are continuously surrounded by telecommunication devices that will become more and more prevalent as new technology is developed to improve efficiency in our daily lives. Similar to other sensitive electronic enclosures, telecommunication devices require venting to equalize pressure and dissipate heat while maintaining barrier protection form the environment. Venting technology and assemblies provide suitable airflow for heat dissipation while maintaining a dust and liquid-tight barrier. Such vents and assemblies can eliminate ingress of liquids even at high temperature and high pressure spray conditions due to the robust design of the vent assembly.
Automotive applications face a myriad of environmental challenges and have unique performance requirements.
Venting for medical electronics encompasses hearing applications, sensor applications as well as battery systems - all of which possess unique performance requirements which are met by some manufacturers’ venting technology. Vents are used to protect hearing aids, AED devices, monitors, pumps, and meters from dust and liquid ingress while allowing sound to transmit through the vent. Similar technology is also used for electronic personal care products and plays an integral role in extending product life and performance.
Ostomy and Urology Bags utilize the superior adsorptive Ultra-Web® Odor Control technology to prevent ballooning of the bags during use. This is accomplished by venting the ostomy bag through an adsorptive vent capable of removing all odors from the vented gas resulting in improved quality of life of the user.
Vents often enable the optimization of a wide variety of enclosures across a multitude of industries. Given their ability to provide pressure equalization, as well as protection from dust, water, oils and solvents, their value cannot be overestimated.
