The Next Generation of Vacuum Pump Systems; Clean, Quiet and Energy Efficient

Vacuum pumps systems no longer have to be loud, noisy, filled with oil that leaks and smokes, or complicated to use. Today’s researchers are looking for vacuum systems characterized by reliable, deep vacuum performance, for use in a wide variety of applications, high flow capacities, shorter process times, precise pressure control, accurate, repeatable results, and clean, quiet, and efficient operation. Also important are environmentally friendly products without sacrificing performance. All of these requirements are now met by new products using a sophisticated, patented pump diaphragm and valve technology.

KNF Lab again extends their wide range of oil-free vacuum pumps and systems with the introduction of the SC950 vacuum pump system with wireless remote control. This innovative vacuum system features a high 50 LPM pumping capacity and a deep 1.5 Torr end vacuum to enable shorter processing time with a wide range of solvents.

This new system combines KNF’s latest diaphragm pump technology with a smart electronic control and efficient motor, saving labs time, energy, money, while protecting the environment.

The heart of the system is a newly developed, four-stage diaphragm pump. Patented diaphragm technology ensures high pneumatic pumping capacity in a small package with minimal operating noise level. All components of the vacuum pump system that come into contact with media are made of chemically-resistant materials for a long trouble-free life. In addition to being extremely quiet, the pump’s performance is precisely controlled by advanced internal electronics.

The system electronics provides four operating modes to ensure the maximum flexibility in a range of laboratory applications; vessel evacuation, constant pressure control, automatic vapor pressure determination and individual pressure function (operates according to a user-defined pressure curve) are all chosen from the handheld remote or via a USB PC control interface.
