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
Earlier this year paralyzed IndyCar drive Sam Schmidt did the seemingly impossible -- opening the qualifying rounds at Indy by driving a modified Corvette C7 Stingray around the Indianapolis Motor Speedway.
Wearables are changing the way we see ourselves. With onboard sensors that have access to our bodies, we are starting to know our physical selves like never before, quantifying our activity, our heart rate, breathing, and even our muscle effort.
Last week, the bill for reforming chemical regulation, the TSCA Modernization Act of 2015, passed the House. If it or a similar bill becomes law, the effects on cost and availability of adhesives and plastics incorporating these substances are not yet clear.
This year, Design News is getting a head start on the Fourth of July celebration. In honor of our country and its legacy of engineering innovation -- in all of its forms -- we are taking you on an alphabetical tour through all 50 states to showcase interesting engineering breakthroughs and historically significant events.
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.
