Guided Inlet

The guided inlet design reduces velocity changes at the inlet where low flow and stasis may occur. This is accomplished by lowering the blood inlet, optimizing orientation of blood prior to reaching the fibre—helping prevent uneven distribution of blood flow through the fibre. This design feature increases use of fibre and decreases areas of underutilized fibre.

Filling Vanes

Filling vanes aid in even filling and even flow distribution across the fibre. The vanes act as spacers, allowing blood to fill between the faceplate and fibre bundle — resulting in even distribution of blood flow into and across the bundle.
