Filtration Series diaphragm pumps promote
"green" operations by performing cleanly without pump oil, conserving water by
eliminating water aspirators, supplying consistent vacuum levels and
eliminating any potential for solvent-contaminated waste generated by oil-type
pumps and water aspirators. KNF Laboport pumps have multi-port valves to
increase performance and can tolerate occasional liquid condensate drawn into
the system without incurring damage. Pump heads integrate corrosion-resistant
wetted parts and the heavy-duty, all ball-bearing motor is lubricated for life.
The pumps can achieve flow rates from 5.5 L/min to 37 L/min and vacuum from 15
Torr (29.3 in. Hg) to 120 Torr (25.2 in. Hg), depending on version. Pumps are
compact, weigh between 1.9 to 4.0 kg and an optional dampened vacuum gauge and
vacuum regulator valve assembly provide smooth vacuum control.
KNF Laboport pumps provide solutions for
flask filtration, vacuum blotting, vacuum manifold and vacuum desiccation and
are alternatives to oil-lubricated pumps, water aspirators, piston pumps, and
Sciaky, provider of electron-beam additive manufacturing (EBAM) services, will start selling these machines commercially in September. The company has used its EBAM 3D printing technology for making very large, high-value, metal prototypes and production parts for aerospace and defense OEMs.
At this year’s Google I/O, the spotlight was pointed on gender inequality in the high-tech industry. Google has established a new initiative that it hopes will even out the playing field, Made w/Code. Part of this initiative will fund free online courses in basic coding.
Focus on Fundamentals consists of 45-minute on-line classes that cover a host of technologies. You learn without leaving the comfort of your desk. All classes are taught by subject-matter experts and all are archived. So if you can't attend live, attend at your convenience.
