The new KNF Type
NF1.60 micro diaphragm pump is a compact high-pressure solution that delivers
flow rates up to 650 ml/min, self-prime to 8.86 in. Hg suction and operates
against pressures up to 87 PSI both intermittently and continuously over the
entire lifetime of the pump. Type NF1.60 pumps integrate a valve system with
precise valve structures and additionally benefit from sophisticated diaphragm
technology. They can be powered either by a brush-commutated dc motor or
brushless dc motor to promote extended service life. Pumps run dry and can be
mounted in any position.
pumps are chemical resistant resulting from the use of PP, PTFE, EPDM and FFMP
materials for components that will come into contact with the pumped medium.
Most neutral and aggressive liquids can be handled without risk of corrosion or
other damage. A wide range of standard voltages and frequencies can be
specified. Specialized complementary accessories can be supplied, including
diaphragm pressure control valves, pulsation dampers, tubing and shock mounts.
Custom products can be developed for particular OEM
application requirements. Typical OEM applications include medical devices,
analytical instruments, fuel cells, inkjet printers, semiconductor operations,
cleaning and disinfection devices, and water treatment systems.
Sharon Glotzer and David Pine are hoping to create the first liquid hard drive with liquid nanoparticles that can store 1TB per teaspoon. They aren't the first to find potential data stores, as Harvard researchers have stored 700 TB inside a gram of DNA.
If you see a hitchhiker along the road in Canada this summer, it may not be human. That’s because a robot is thumbing its way across our neighbor to the north as part of a collaborative research project by several Canadian universities.
SpaceX has 3D printed and successfully hot-fired a SuperDraco engine chamber made of Inconel, a high-performance superalloy, using direct metal laser sintering (DMLS). The company's first 3D-printed rocket engine part, a main oxidizer valve body for the Falcon 9 rocket, launched in January and is now qualified on all Falcon 9 flights.
Stanford University researchers have found a way to realize what’s been called the “Holy Grail” of battery-design research -- designing a pure lithium anode for lithium-based batteries. The design has great potential to provide unprecedented efficiency and performance in lithium-based batteries that could substantially drive down the cost of electric vehicles and solve the charging problems associated with smartphones.
UK researchers have come up with a method for machining aerospace-grade, carbon fiber-reinforced composites, along with high-strength aerospace alloys, using an ultrasonically assisted machining device. It also works on high-strength aerospace alloys.
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.
