Small Animal Ventilators
CWE, Inc. has pioneered many innovations in the area of small animal ventilation. These range from the basic SAR-830 Series of volume and/or pressure-cycled models for routine maintenance of small animals, to computer-controlled models for specialized applications.
All CWE ventilators operate on the flow-time principle. This method uses a constant flow of gas, which is gated into the animal for a known time, thus producing a known volume (flow x time = volume). This simple but powerful approach gives great flexibility in setting ventilation parameters such as inspiration time, I/E ratio, and more; something that is difficult or impossible to accomplish with the older mechanical piston-pump technology. In addition, this contributes to the legendary reliability and long service life of our ventilators, since the only moving parts are a pair of long-life solenoid valves.
