SAM 12 - General Suction
The SAM 12 aspirator is a top quality surgical suction unit designed to be highly adaptable. The SAM 12 is a high flow, high vacuum unit ideal for use in general wards, accident and emergency, minor operating theatres, intensive care and also as a backup unit for hospitals and dentistry clinics. Its reputation for reliability and ease of operation has established it among the most widely used units in the medical world today.
At the heart of the unit is our MQ25 oil free diaphragm vacuum pump that requires minimal maintenance and helps prevent cross contamination. The MQ25 also benefits from an enclosed crankcase for quiet operation, IP44 totally enclosed fan cooled (TEFC) permanent capacitor motor with long life sealed bearings and thermal protection.
As standard, the SAM 12 is fitted with MGE's autoclaveable SAM 2 collection jar fitted with a float valve system, providing automatic shut-off to avoid over-flow. Other safety features include an internal hydrophobic filter to minimise the risk of contamination as well as providing a further level of protection to the pump.
The SAM 12 can be fitted with a choice of disposable collection systems including Serres, Abbott, VacSax and Pennine. Other disposable collection systems can also be offered on request.
The unit has a disposable bacterial filter mounted externally on top to provide a barrier for the patient and this can also be upgraded to our external hydrophobic filter if further protection is required.
