KNF Neuberger, Inc. announces the launch of its enhanced SIMDOS® 10 line of diaphragm liquid metering pumps. Available with four head material options, the line affords laboratory personnel with simple operation, thanks to a user-friendly display and adjustable transfer parameters from a touch-control knob.
The SIMDOS 10 FT version features a PTFE head, a PTFE-covered diaphragm, and chemically resistant FFKM Kalrez® valves, for the transfer of aggressive chemicals. An optionally available Chemraz®-valve kit allows using the pump with highly concentrated acids such as nitric, sulphuric and hydrochloric acids and solvents such as TFH, DMF, DMSO and MEK.
Also available with heads in PP, PVDF or stainless steel, each pump in the SIMDOS 10 line transfers liquids with a flow rate of 1-100 mL/min, and dose volumes of 1 mL up to 999 mL. In addition to fast and simple calibration, the pump offers excellent long-term stability and consistent reliability throughout its lifetime. The pump head is situated outside the splash-protected IP-65 housing, providing a significant safety feature.
SIMDOS 10 pumps are safe to run dry and are self-priming up to 9.8 ft. water. Effective against pressures of up to 85 psig, SIMDOS 10 pumps transfer viscous media up to 500 centistokes (reduced flow rate above 150 centistokes). The integrated software permits transfer parameters to be modified for a range of different viscosities at the touch of a button. SIMDOS 10 offers several control options, including manual operation, analog control, start/stop and reset/prime through logical control (TTL), external RC control and RS 232 for PC control. Thanks to a streamlined design and small footprint, SIMDOS 10 dosing pumps take up very little valuable laboratory space.
