New Flow-Tight, Diaphragm Liquid Transfer Pump Prevents Uncontrolled Flow

New, FL 10 Diaphragm Liquid Transfer Pump Prevents Uncontrolled Flow

KNF’s newest liquid transfer pump, the FL 10, is leak-tight in both directions, preventing uncontrolled flow and back-flow of liquid media when not in use. The latest addition to KNF’s extensive line of diaphragm liquid transfer pumps, the FL 10 offers many advanced features, and provides a considerable advantages over similar competitive products.

Leak-tight Diaphragm Liquid Transfer Pump

Featuring a solenoid-drive, and leak-tight valve technology, the compact FL 10 liquid transfer pump displaces fluid at a flow rate of 0 – 100 mL/min. Additionally, a signal frequency modulation feature enables quick and easy flow rate adjustments, saving time and money. Finally, like all KNF diaphragm liquid handling pumps, the FL 10 is self-priming, dry-run safe, and maintenance-free – offering outstanding performance longevity and an extraordinarily long service life (10,000 hours or 1.8 billion strokes).

KNF Exhibiting at the World’s Largest Printing Equipment Show

reprographic printingAs a trusted partner to many of the world’s leading industrial reprographic printer manufacturers, KNF is preparing to showcase its latest product developments at Drupa 2016. Considered the world’s largest printing equipment exhibition, Drupa is open every three years in Dusseldorf, Germany. This year, the show runs from May 31st through June 10th, and KNF is excited to be a part of it.

At the show, KNF will be exhibiting its latest product developments including liquid pumps with flow rates from microLiters/min to 12 L/min+ and gas pumps with flow rates from microLiters to 300 L/min. Additionally, KNF offers a wide selection of pumps that can be optimized for specific needs through engineer-to-engineer collaboration. Optional materials, motor types, fluid connections and other modifications are available to optimize performance, life, and cost at any quantity.

KNF liquid and gas pumps perform important ink handling tasks, including the ink transfer to print heads, ink degassing, print head cleaning, vacuum generation for print head meniscus control, and ink circulation. From continuous inkjet to drop-on-demand, from large format printing to product barcoding, KNF has the pumps needed for high-quality, consistent printing.

Please plan to stop by our booth in Hall 4, booth B01 if you will be attending Drupa 2016. To learn more about KNF pumps for reprographic printing visit www.knfusa.com/reprographics or read our related Application Notes:

The Right Pump to Meet Your Continuous Ink-jet Printing Requirements

Application Note: OEMAs the continuous ink-jet (CIJ) printing industry evolves, KNF remains a driving force behind the change from yesterday’s peristaltic and gear driven pumps, to today’s more efficient diaphragm pumps. In fact, KNF is well positioned to serve this industry, thanks to our CIJ applications knowledge and selection of readily-optimized liquid and gas handling diaphragm pumps.

Diaphragm pumps overcome common problems inherent with the use of peristaltic and gear pumps in CIJ applications. Peristaltic pumps have short tube life leading to maintenance issues or messy clean-up, while gear pumps have issues including performance decay, shed particles, high cost, and they cannot run dry. In contrast, our diaphragm pumps provide a greatly extended performance life, lower cost operation, leak-tightness, robust chemical resistance, the ability to handle challenging inks, and our liquid pumps are self-priming and can run wet or dry. In addition, KNF diaphragm pumps can include features such as logic-controlled brushless DC motors, special electrical connections and mounting plates, and dampeners for applications sensitive to pulsation.
