KNF Neuberger Inc.'s single-head pumps are now
available as tandem diaphragm pumps for liquids. Two pump heads driven by one
motor are integrated to equip designers with solutions for a wide range of OEM
applications. These specially configured self-priming pumps can be specified in
a variety of standard materials, connection types, motors and with custom options.
They can serve as "drop-in" replacements for other tandem-version pumps,
regardless of manufacturer.
are available in three sizes: NFT30, NFT60 and NFT100. KNF tandem pumps can
achieve flow rates of 1.2 lpm per head and pressure up to 85 psig per head.
configuration can perform independently to handle different liquids (or even
air/gas on one side) along with separate pressure and flow requirements or they
can be plumbed in parallel to operate together for increased flow and reduced
can be selected either with brush-commutated dc, brushless dc (BLDC) or
ironless core motor. Pumps can be mounted for operation in any position and suit
applications ranging from medical devices and chemical/blood analyzers to
large-scale inkjet printers and other equipment and instruments across

In a bid to boost the viability of lithium-based electric car batteries, a team at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory has developed a chemistry that could possibly double an EV’s driving range while cutting its battery cost in half.
For industrial control applications, or even a simple assembly line, that machine can go almost 24/7 without a break. But what happens when the task is a little more complex? That’s where the “smart” machine would come in. The smart machine is one that has some simple (or complex in some cases) processing capability to be able to adapt to changing conditions. Such machines are suited for a host of applications, including automotive, aerospace, defense, medical, computers and electronics, telecommunications, consumer goods, and so on. This discussion will examine what’s possible with smart machines, and what tradeoffs need to be made to implement such a solution.
