Emerson, a technology and engineering company, has announced a collaboration with BioBusiness, an Egyptian medical equipment manufacturing company, to design and manufacture several types of ventilators using its Asco valves and Aventics regulators to provide precise control of pressure and flow of gases.
Providing consultancy support on the design of the ventilators, Emerson worked with BioBusiness to build a prototype using Asco miniature valves and Aventics regulators, completing the project ahead of schedule. BioBusiness gave the ventilator the production brand name Biovent A Series & E Series.
Emerson and BioBusiness are also currently working on an intensive care unit ventilator design and prototype E Series. BioBusiness said it had selected Emerson to work on the new series of ventilators because of the company’s local capabilities in supporting indigenous design and manufacturing standards that meet the stringent requirements of Egypt’s medical industry.
BioBusiness CEO Engineer Mostafa El Wakeel said: “The battle is far from over. As long as Covid-19 threatens the region and the world, we will continue to innovate and create new solutions to meet the evolving challenges of the virus.”
