Frequently Asked Questions

How much pressure can the Ultra-Drum Tourniquet handle?
Either model of Ultra-Drum Tourniquet (Magnetic or Universal) can hold up to 30" head pressure (1.08 psi / 759 kg/m2).



What is the maximum temperature for the Ultra-Drum Tourniquets?
The EPDM sealing pad of the Drum Tourniquets can handle a maximum constant temperature of 194 F (90 C) and maximum short term of 248 F (120 C).



How hard is the Ultra-Drum Tourniquet to install?
The Magnetic Model is as simple as pushing the two sides until the magnets come into contact and stick to the drum. That's it, you're done. The Universal Model will take a few extra moments - long enough to put the ratchet strap around the drum and tighten it down. Not as quick and easy as the Magnetic Model but pretty close!
