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
The engineers and inventors of the post WWII period turned their attention to advancements in electronics, communication, and entertainment. Breakthrough inventions range from LEGOs and computer gaming to the integrated circuit and Ethernet -- a range of advancements that have little in common except they changed our lives.
The age of touch could soon come to an end. From smartphones and smartwatches, to home devices, to in-car infotainment systems, touch is no longer the primary user interface. Technology market leaders are driving a migration from touch to voice as a user interface.
Soft starter technology has become a way to mitigate startup stressors by moderating a motor’s voltage supply during the machine start-up phase, slowly ramping it up and effectively adjusting the machine’s load behavior to protect mechanical components.
A new report from the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) makes a start on developing control schemes, process measurements, and modeling and simulation methods for powder bed fusion additive manufacturing.
If you’re developing a product with lots of sensors and no access to the power grid, then you’ll want to take note of a Design News Continuing Education Center class, “Designing Low Power Systems Using Battery and Energy Harvesting Energy Sources."
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.
