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.
A Tokyo company, Miraisens Inc., has unveiled a device that allows users to move virtual 3D objects around and "feel" them via a vibration sensor. The device has many applications within the gaming, medical, and 3D-printing industries.
In the last few years, use of CFD in building design has increased manifolds. Computational
fluid dynamics is effective in analyzing the flow and thermal properties of air within spaces. It can be used in buildings to find the best measures for comfortable temperature at low energy use.
