Designs to address emergency shortages due to COVID-19

Equilibar’s technical team has been collaborating with bioengineering and medical professionals to modify the design of our fluid control valves to enable them to serve as potential building blocks for medical ventilator systems. We believe this technology can contribute to the global effort to increase the supply of ventilators for COVID-19 victims. 

We are working to make our technology available through high volume manufacturing using motorsports machine shops in North Carolina. Our partners are actively working to bring additional ventilator systems to market by integrating our valves and other components that are available.

Beyond this, we want to make our designs and expertise accessible to the world as efficiently as possible.

Today we are releasing a product cut sheet for one of our prototypes, RV-22, as well as information about how the valve may be set up for use, showing schematics and videos. We will continue to release more information on an ongoing basis as it becomes available. Please visit this page regularly for updates.

PLEASE NOTE THE FOLLOWING

  • Equilibar control valves are not FDA approved for use in medical procedures. Our specialized valves are intended to serve as building blocks for ventilator systems designed by experienced biomedical professionals who are in a position to apply for emergency FDA approval. 
  • These valves will be produced in volume and priced as affordably as possible. Negotiated terms are available for emergency situations. 
  • For those who are unable to source from Equilibar, we will, for qualified candidates, make our drawings available. A temporary limited use release is required.
  • Contact an Equilibar engineer at inquiry@equilibar.com for more information.
