Process Pump with Water-Cooled Head Option
Product Announcement from KNF Neuberger, Inc.
KNF N0150 diaphragm pumps can now be customized with water-cooled heads to prevent pump overheating in process applications where exothermic reactions from helium, xenon, and other gases may produce excessive heat and potentially shorten pump service life. They can ideally serve industries ranging from specialty gases to radiopharmaceuticals, among others.
This powerful pump is designed to deliver the highest flow rate of any electrically operated diaphragm pump. The pump operates without oil to eliminate risk of medium contamination and can be equipped with a double diaphragm system for increased safety critical when handling particularly dangerous gases.
In addition to water-cooled heads, N0150 process pumps can be customized with a variety of options to satisfy application requirements. Pumps can be supplied with explosion-proof motors for compliance with ATEX and Class 1 Division 1 Groups C and D hazardous locations; corrosion-resistant models can be developed to withstand harsh environments; specialized leak-tight capabilities can be enhanced; and a wide range of available pump materials can be specified to expand application potential.
Depending on model, these pumps can achieve flow rates up to 300 L/min (10 SCFM), maximum vacuums up to 29.3 in. Hg, and maximum pressure up to 30 psig. They are designed to exhibit significantly low leak rates ranging from 6 x 10-3 mbar l/s (standard models) to 6 x 10-6 mbar l/s (double-diaphragm versions).
Their cast aluminum compressor housing imparts optimized rigidity and stability and use of a heavy-duty motor with sealed ball bearings contributes to smooth-running and quiet operation. Accessories include noise and dust filters, hose connectors, and shock mounts.
