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.
From home enthusiasts to workers on the manufacturing floor, everyone's imagination is captured by the potential of 3D printing. Prototyping, spare parts creation, art delivery, human organ creation, and even mass product production are all being targeted as current and potential uses for the technology.
ABI Research, a firm based in the UK that specializes in analyzing global connectivity and other emerging technologies, estimates there will be 40.9 billion active wirelessly interconnected “things” by 2020. The driving force is the usual suspect: the Internet of Things.
Just in time for Earth Day, chemicals leader Bayer MaterialScience reported from the UTECH Europe 2015 polyurethane show on programs and applications using its materials to help reduce energy usage. The company also gave an update on its CO2-based PU as that eco-friendly material comes closer to production.
Solar and wind energy are becoming more viable as a source of energy on the electric grid. For decades, the major drawback to solar and wind was that they’re temperamental. A cloudy day kills solar and a still day renders the wind turbines useless. Automation tools, however, are providing a path to help these renewables become practical.
In honor of Earth Day, the National Security Agency has launched the STEM Recycling Challenge in Maryland schools to encourage kids to think about where the garbage they throw out every day actually goes. The agency has also introduced “Dunk,” a muscular blue cartoon recycling bin wearing shorts and sneakers.
