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 to Host Lab Pumps & Applications Symposium in Collaboration with Local ACS

Pumps are an important component in practically all chemistry laboratories. Yet for such a common device, selecting the correct pump for a particular application is often a challenge.

Join us for a Laboratory Pumps and Applications Symposium

Join us on Nov. 4th for a Laboratory Pumps & Applications Symposium

KNF Neuberger, in collaboration with the Trenton Section of the American Chemical Society, will be hosting a symposium on “Laboratory Pumps and Applications”. The presentation will focus on taking the mystery out of laboratory pumps, looking at the most common applications and the pumps that best support them. Discussion topics include:

  • What is the best pump type for my application?
  • What accessories are available to help me optimize the performance of the pump in my application?
  • What are the signs that my pump is in need of maintenance or repair?
  • And much more!


LOCATION

This exclusive, co-sponsored event will be held at KNF’s state-of-the-art, 50,000 square ft. manufacturing facility at Two Black Forest Road in Trenton, NJ.

SCHEDULE
5:30 pm – Mixer with drinks and appetizers, plant tours and product demos
6:30 pm – Dinner and presentation
7:30 pm – Coffee and dessert
Refreshments and dinner are complimentary. There will also be a drawing for door prizes.

PRESENTER
Roland Anderson is the Laboratory Products Manager and applications specialist at KNF Neuberger, Inc.

Reservations are required, as seating is limited, so be sure to register now!

Enhanced Line of Liquid Laboratory Pumps

It’s day two here at #pittcon15 in New Orleans. If you are here at the conference and have not yet had a chance to stop by KNF booth #2211, please plan to do so. One of our features at this year’s show is the recently enhanced line of SIMDOS 10 liquid laboratory pumps.

KNF's SIMDOS 10 liquid laboratory pump

SIMDOS 10 pumps are ideal for metering and dosing applications in a number of professional and academic fields, including: chemistry, pharmaceutical, food research, and polymers, to name a few. SIMDOS 10 pumps offer lab personnel the ability to transfer liquids (up to 500 centistokes*) at flow rates of 1-100 mL/min, with dose volumes from 1 mL to 999 mL.

“While the SIMDOS 10 and SIMDOS 02 pumps can move liquids quickly and accurately, their real strengths are configuration and control options which can be matched to a user’s automation requirements and/or chemical profile” said Dan McDougall, Senior Manager of Laboratory Products at KNF. Indeed the SIMDOS pumps are designed to allow for convenient control of lab metering/dosing tasks which may be repetitive and redundant.

For example, new to this latest version of the SIMDOS 10 is a Cycle Metering Mode. “Say you’re performing an automated fill of vials on a conveyor belt…”, explains MacDougall. “You can program the SIMDOS to dispense a discrete volume into each vial with set pause durations in-between.” This new feature allows the user to set the number of cycles, the pause duration, and the dosing volume.

In addition to the added convenience of the Cycle Metering Mode, there are a few new control type options now available for the  SIMDOS 10. First, the SIMDOS 10 is now available in an RCP-version, which includes a RS 232 interface, enabling ASCII character control of virtually all pump functions, plus the ability to use programmable lab control software such as LABVIEW, or KNF’s free PC control software (available for download at knfusa.com). Next, an RC-version is available, which includes an RC cable for external control options such as a foot switch, or analog PC control. Finally, the standard S-version of the SIMDOS relies on the manual on-board interface with back-lit display for intuitive, push-button operation.

For a demonstration of the SIMDOS 10 and 02 lab liquid pumps, click the video below courtesy of Jean Delteil, KNF Liquid Pumps Product Manager; or stop by PITTCON booth #2211 for a live demo.

See You At AACC!

NFB 100 liquid diaphragm pumpNFB 100 liquid diaphragm pump with datasheetToday we’re packing up and preparing to send materials to display in the KNF Neuberger booth at AACC 2014, held this year in Chicago on July 29 – 31. Before we lock up the crate, though, we thought we’d take a quick break and mention that we’ll be introducing a brand new liquid diaphragm pump at the AACC show.  With two heads driven by one motor, this pump provides twice the flow and half the pulsation when operated in parallel mode. In the individual mode, two different liquids can be transferred simultaneously by one unit, eliminating the need for a second pump.

Please plan to stop by KNF Neuberger booth #4328 at AACC next week. For more information before the show, or to arrange
a meeting there, please click on one of the following links:

  • Learn more about KNF air, gas and liquid pumps, designed to perform critical tasks for clinical diagnostic instruments and medical devices, such as liquid transfer, liquid aspiration, liquid dosing/metering, degassing, vacuum, and pneumatics.
  • Contact us to arrange a meeting at AACC Chicago.

See you there!
