KNF Neuberger has introduced a new solenoid-driven FL 10 diaphragm pump for original equipment manufacturers (OEMs).
With a nominal liquid flow rate of 100 mL/min, FL 10 features bi-directional flow-tightness without additional check valves, IP 65 protection, simple linear flow rate adjustment and has a maintenance-free expected lifetime.
The FL 10 pump uses spring tension in the linear solenoid drive to keep it flow-tight in both directions when turned off, making additional check valves unnecessary and helping to reduce costs. Built for operation in demanding environments such as wet or dusty areas, the pump’s IP 65 protection class reduces the need for additional protection in the customer’s system. Furthermore, sealing between the pump housing and the linear drive ensures fail-safe operation, so that in case of a ruptured diaphragm, liquid is kept away from other areas of the system. Laser-welded head parts keep the pump leak-free.
Flow rate adjustment during the assembly process at KNF ensures high repeatability from pump to pump, thus saving calibration time when the pump is built into the customer’s system. The pump’s frequency-controlled drive also allows OEMs to quickly and linearly adjust the flow rate. This makes it easier integrate the pump into dynamic liquid circuits in OEM devices, helping to reduce lengthy testing and improve time to market.
