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.
Lithium-ion battery prices will drop rapidly over the next 10 years, setting the stage for plug-in vehicles to reach 5%-10% of total automotive sales by the mid- to late-2020s, according to a new study.
Two researchers from Cornell University have won a $100,000 grant from NASA to continue work to develop an energy-harvesting robotic eel the space agency aims to use to explore oceans on one of the moons of Jupiter.
Is the factory smarter than it used to be? From recent buzzwords, you’d think we’ve entered a new dimension in industrial plants, where robots run all physical functions wirelessly and humans do little more than program ever more capable robotics. Some of that is actually true, but it’s been true for a while.
A recent Design News-exclusive study proves that engineering professionals are at the very forefront of this push into the future and making direct financial, performance, and value impact on their organizations by being personally involved or final decision-makers on automation solution and component choices.
