THERMOVENT HEPA Low Dead Space HME Filter, manufactured by Smiths Medical, is a hydrophobic bacterial and viral filter that provides a barrier to both liquid and airborne micro-organisms.
This HME filter protects against bacteria while ensuring minimal resistance to gas flow. The transparent housing allows visual confirmation of contamination with ease.
According to Smiths Medical, these filters have been independently tested and shown to meet the proposed European Standard for viral and bacterial penetration both before and after 24 hours use.
