KNF Launches Solenoid-Driven Diaphragm Pump
19 December 2018
KNF has announced that it has released a new solenoid-driven liquid transfer pump for the OEM sector. The new pump, named the FL 10, has a nominal flowrate of 100ml/min. KNF states that the new pump features bi-directional flow tightness without additional check valves, IP 65 protection, simple linear flowrate adjustment, a maintenance-free expected lifetime of 10,000h and other key cost-saving attributes.
The FL 10 uses spring tension in the linear solenoid drive to keep it flow-tight in both directions when turned off. This feature makes additional check valves unnecessary and helps to reduce costs. The pump has been designed for operation in demanding environments such as wet or dusty areas, with an IP 65 protection class, reducing the need for additional protection.
FL 10 delivers 0 - 100 mL/min against atmospheric pressure and can be operated to 14.5 psig (1 bar). Applicable markets include cleaning and disinfection, inkjet printing, laboratory automation, medical diagnostics, and water analysis.
