Graphical user interface for dosing pumps

Wednesday, January 24th, 2018 von admin

The German micro-pump manufacturer HNP Mikrosysteme is introducing the mzr-Touch Control as a new possibility to control micro annular gear pumps (mzr-pumps) via a graphical user interface. The multilingual graphical user interface supplements the present control of mzr-dosing pumps via laptop or PC. The mzr-Touch Control is compatible to most mzr-pump sizes and series with low to medium power drives. This compact device controls one pump each and is easy and intuitive to handle. Dosage volumes from 0.25 µl and flow rate ranges of 1 µl/min to 288 ml/min can be indicated by the user. This system will be presented at Analytica 2018 in Munich, Hall 1, booth 409.

Grundfos: Direct Sensors – the sense organs of the pump

Saturday, August 22nd, 2015 von admin

grundfos DirectYou can only change what is accessible by measurement – whoever wants to control a process flow of a pump needs reliable current data on the one hand, and on the other, possible intelligent linking and interpretation of this data: Sensors deliver data, microchips have stored software to interpret this and actuators implement the commands. To also offer technical benchmarks, the pump manufacturer Grundfos maintains well-equipped own research and development departments, finance and personnel dealing with motors, frequency converters, sensors, microchips and their programming.

The ‘Direct Sensor’ development is a micro-mechanical semiconductor sensor (MEMS, Micro-Electro-Mechanical System), which is produced in its own wafer fabrication facility of purity grade 10.

Hapag Lloyd chooses electronic pump control from Colfax

Wednesday, April 8th, 2015 von admin

Hapag Lloyd will equip ships of the 13,200-TEU Hamburg Express class and other vessels with the CM-1000® pump control system. The CM-1000 system controls the flow rates of seawater cooling pumps based on the temperature of the fresh water and the current need for coolant. As a result, the amount of seawater pumped into the seawater cooler matches requirements, saving electrical power on board the ship.
