About Pneumatic Tube Carriers
If you have ever gone to a drive through bank, you have probably used a tube carrier service. But pneumatic tube carriers are also highly used for transportation in the medical field, as well as safely transporting sensitive materials. Tube carriers are ideal for the medical field because they can isolate samples that need to be tested and send them immediately to their location. They close securely, so the samples remain uncontaminated and will stay locked until you manually open them.
Pneumatic tube carriers come in several styles and colors, and can be transported through tube stations and systems without issue. There is cushioning to keep the carrier from bouncing in the tube, and the materials are durable enough to handle continuous trips, and are resistant to popping open. They can also be used for delivery services outside of the tube system because of their secure closure and sanitary interior. When not in use, the carriers are easily stacked, saving you space and making them easy to access when needed.
Our carrier tubes also come with the option to choose from a wide range of colors to help clearly organize your system. There are accessories you can purchase as well to help optimize your performance.
It is good practice for hospitals to use carrier liners to help cushion your carrier’s interior and protect the contents from moving around inside.
Applications For Pneumatic Tube Carriers
Other lesser-known settings that rely on pneumatic tube systems include post offices, pharmacies, and even airports. In general, any setting that relies on quick and safe transportation of small items can benefit greatly from pneumatic systems. It is also crucial to note that pneumatic systems come with a high level of flexibility and customization to fit any organization’s specific needs.
How Pneumatic Tube Systems Work
With the help of air pressure, the pneumatic carrier is launched and pushed forward at a high speed. When the carrier reaches its destination, the compressed air will be released, thereby helping the carrier to stop. Typically, both the sending and receiving stations have an alert system to notify employees when a package has been received.
Often, pneumatic tube systems have rather simple configurations that are effective and straightforward. There is often just one receiving station linked to several sending stations. However, there are more sophisticated computerized systems that connect sending stations to a large number of receiving stations. In these sophisticated systems, it is common to have multiple packages all being sent along in different directions at any one time. In fact, some complex systems may have tons of sending and receiving stations, requiring several compressors to propel the carriers along.
