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
New versions of BASF's Ecovio line are both compostable and designed for either injection molding or thermoforming. These combinations are becoming more common for the single-use bioplastics used in food service and food packaging applications, but are still not widely available.
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 radio show will show what’s possible with smart machines, and what tradeoffs need to be made to implement such a solution.
