This guide aims to help you navigate the selection process effectively.
A syringe pump is a device that is used to accurately and precisely dispense small amounts of fluid over a period of time. It typically consists of a control unit that is connected to a motorized pump and a syringe. Syringe pumps work by using a motor to drive a plunger that pushes fluid out of a syringe. The control unit of the pump can be programmed to dispense a specific volume of fluid at a specific flow rate over a specified period of time. The motor moves the plunger at a consistent speed, ensuring that the desired volume of fluid is dispensed at the desired rate. Some syringe pumps also have the ability to reverse the direction of the plunger, allowing them to draw fluid back into the syringe. This feature can be useful for tasks such as flushing a line or emptying a syringe. Syringe pumps are highly accurate and precise, making them an essential tool in a variety of applications.
This digital syringe pump (dLSP500) is designed for precision fluid handling laboratory applications. It accepts syringe size from 0.5uL to 60mL. Let's consider the dLSP500 syringe pump to estimate the flow rate range. This pump has a linear translation speed range of 0.0833mm/min to 180mm/min, with a resolution of 0.03255µm/µstep. Table 1, 2, and 3 list commonly used syringe sizes and their inner diameters. The inner diameter of a 5 mL BD plastic syringe is approximately 11.98 mm. Using this information, we can calculate that the flow rate of the syringe pump ranges from 9.389 µL/min to 20.289 mL/min. The flow rates for other syringe sizes can be calculated in a similar manner. In addition, the average pressures for any syringe pump and syringe together can be estimated by dividing the average force applied on the syringe pump and the syringe surface area.
A gear pump is a type of positive displacement pump that uses rotating gears to move fluid through the pump. The main features of a gear pump include: High volumetric efficiency: Gear pumps can move a large amount of fluid with relatively small amounts of input power. Constant flow: Gear pumps can maintain a constant flow rate regardless of changes in the system's pressure or the pump's speed. Low pulsation: Gear pumps produce low levels of pulsation, which makes them well-suited for applications where smooth flow is important. Low noise level: Gear pumps generate low noise, compared to other displacement pumps, such as peristaltic pumps.
Peristaltic aseptic filling is a method of filling pharmaceutical products using peristaltic pumps, which are pumps that use a series of tubes or hoses to move fluids. This method is used in the pharmaceutical industry to ensure that the products being filled are free from contamination and meet strict quality and safety standards, such as intravenous solutions, injectable medications, and other sterile fluids. It is a reliable and efficient method for filling containers with sterile fluids, ensuring that the finished product is of high quality and free of contaminants.
Peristaltic pumps inherit with flow pulsation as a natural result of the way in which the pump operates by compressing the tubing. There are several approaches that can be used to reduce flow pulsation in peristaltic pumps. The principles behind these approaches to reducing flow pulsation in peristaltic pumps involve minimizing the amount of disruption to the flow of the fluid and allowing the fluid to pass through the pump smoothly and evenly. A few commonly used methods are discussed herein.
A vacuum pump is a mechanical device that is used to create a vacuum by removing gas molecules from a sealed volume in order to create vacuum. There are several types of vacuum pumps available, each with its own set of features and capabilities. Some common types of vacuum pumps include: rotary vane pumps, diaphragm pumps, piston pumps, scroll umps and diffusion pumps.
Ultrasonic cell homogenizers use high frequency sound waves to disrupt and homogenize cells and tissue samples. They work by generating sound waves in the ultrasonic range (typically 20 kHz to 1 MHz) and directing them through a probe or horn that is placed in contact with the sample. The sound waves cause the cells or tissue to vibrate rapidly, which breaks them down into smaller pieces. This process is known as cavitation.
NIR (near-infrared) spectroscopy is a type of spectroscopic technique that uses light in the near-infrared region of the electromagnetic spectrum (wavelengths from approximately 750 nm to 2500 nm) to identify and analyze chemical compounds. NIR spectroscopy is based on the absorption of light by molecules. When a molecule absorbs a photon of light, the energy of the photon is transferred to the molecule, causing it to vibrate or rotate. The specific vibrations or rotations that a molecule undergoes depend on the chemical bonds and functional groups present in the molecule. By measuring the absorption of light at specific wavelengths, it is possible to determine the functional groups and chemical bonds present in a sample, and thus identify the chemical compounds that are present.
A peristaltic pump is a type of mechanical pump that uses rotating rollers to compress and move a flexible tube or hose, which creates suction and propels the liquid or fluid contained in the hose. This type of pump is commonly used in a variety of industries due to its ability to handle delicate and viscous fluids, as well as its ability to operate in a variety of conditions and environments.
