Coil Reinforced Medical Tubing
DUKE Empirical is a custom manufacturer and supplier of premium quality reinforced coiled medical tubing products. With our design, specification development, testing, and validated manufacturing, we can assist you in developing a coil reinforced tube that is manufactured to your exact specifications.
DUKE Empirical utilizes ISO Class 8 cleanrooms to extrude, manufacture, and assemble our medical tubing, catheter components, and finished goods. Our controlled environment rooms are monitored for particulate to the ISO 14644 standards. In addition to meeting the ISO standard for particulate, the rooms are monitored for microbiology, making them suitable for medical device manufacturing.

Coil Reinforced Composite Tube AdvantagesCoil reinforced composite tube offers performance similar to braid reinforced tubing. There are different advantages to coil reinforced tubing that may make it more suitable for your application. DUKE can recommend the best option to accommodate your needs. We take into consideration the performance, cost, and other factors when recommending the perfect design for you.
Coil Reinforcement Material Options
Whether your project requires mono filament or multi filament reinforcement materials in the wall of the tubing. The monofilaments are available in flat or round profiles in a variety of materials. Multifilaments are also available in multiple materials including metals and polymers, DUKE Empirical can provide coil filaments based on your exact geometric needs. Coil filament geometries can include ribbon, round, or flat. Single or multi-filament coils can be used. DUKE Empirical will help you determine the best material selection for your composite reinforced tubing.
Our coil reinforced composite tube manufacturing capabilities can be combined with hole punching for greater accessibility and PTFE liners for improved interior lubricity. You can discover more information about hole punching and PTFE liners on our sister site, Duke Extrusion. Composite tube refers to multiple materials in the tube. For instance, PTFE can be applied to the inner layer for inertance to chemicals, while a variety of jacket materials can be applied to where the core is applied.

Reinforced Coiled Medical Tubing Material OptionsCommon in irrigation cannulas and catheters, Pics-per-inch (PPI) can be varied along the length of the tube, which provides access points for ports or the introduction of other devices through the wall of the tubing. Options for reinforcement materials include:
- Ultra-high weight molecular polyethylene
- Carbon fiber
- Stainless steel
- And other fiber materials that you can find on our sister site, Duke Extrusion.
