Multi-lumen tubing provides multiple channels in a single-tube structure. It is used in a variety of catheter and medical device applications. DUKE Extrusion is a leading custom catheter and medical tubing extrusion provider, and manufactures custom multi-lumen tubing in a wide range of materials to match your unique specifications or application requirements.
Custom Multi-Lumen Extrusion Options
Our multi-lumen medical tubing can be manufactured in a wide variety of profiles and configurations, including:
- PTFE Lined
- Thin Wall
- and more
DUKE Extrusion’s multi-lumen tubing is produced to each customer’s unique requirements. Extruded plastic profiles can be made with lumens of different materials, colors and durometers; stripes or concentric layers composed of different materials, colors and durometers; braid or coil; and other features. Your custom multi-lumen extrusion can incorporate:
- Up to 24 lumens in a single tube
- Round or eccentric-shaped lumens (crescent, oblong, square, etc.)
- Unique profile outer diameters (star, hex, keyed profile, etc.)
- Wall thicknesses down to 0.001”
Design & Engineering for Multi-Lumen Tubing
DUKE Extrusion offers full in-house design support for the development of multi-lumen medical tubing to meet functional requirements, such as burst pressure, kink resistance, coefficient of friction, pushability, torque response, or other performance specifications. Custom-extruded multi-lumen tubing can be produced with the shortest industry lead times.
Our design team can assist you in the development of multi-lumen tubing designs that optimize performance and manufacturability. I.D., O.D., wall thickness, concentricity, dimensioning and tolerencing, materials, and other variables are custom specified to create the ideal multi-lumen tubing solution.
Specialized processes can also be designed to produce tubing with a variety of performance characteristics without a corresponding change in dimensions. For example, by varying the draw down ratio of the tooling used in the extrusion process, properties such as elongation and stiffness can be adjusted.
If you need custom multi-lumen medical tubing, you need DUKE Extrusion. Our team of engineers provides extensive experience and expertise to help you develop the ideal multi-lumen extrusion for your unique requirements.
