Continuous flow syringe pump
Teledyne Isco’s Demi 2510S is a continuous flow syringe pump that boasts a small footprint and active valves. It was built for users seeking to upgrade to a continuous flow syringe pump as an alternative to the pulsing flow of a reciprocating pump. Small footprint of 10 inches by 12 inches. This is especially beneficial for customers that need to capitalize on limited bench space. The Demi is accurate (±1.0%) and features dependable flow rates up to 10 mL/min at 173.6 BAR (2,500 psi). Thus, a flow meter is not required.
ANVER’s line of CheckVac Valves feature a low 0.17 psi cracking pressure with flow rates up to 63 CV and a one-piece shell to eliminate leaks. Unlike pressure check valves, they optimize system performance by not wasting the pump’s power opening stiffer springs, resulting in up to four times better flow. Designed for vacuum clamping, lifting and holding applications. Made from a leak-free, seamless, one-piece anodized aluminum body with a smooth bore and have a plastic valve element with a specially tempered stainless steel spring and an O-ring seal. Offered in 1/4” through 2” NPT sizes.
The FlexSwitch® FLT93 Flow Switch from Fluid Components International reduces pump repair and extends pump life by detecting dry running conditions. FCI’s dual alarm FLT93 Flow Switch reliably monitors the flow and temperature of liquids, gases, slurries and more. It is ideal for pump wet/dry detection. With its no-moving-parts design, it offers a highly robust scheme for pump protection with its dual alarm capability. It is a dual-function instrument that indicates both flow and temperature, and/or level sensing in a single device. Dual 6A relay outputs are standard and are assignable to flow, level or temperature.

Air-operated double diaphragm pumps
Graco has expanded its Husky™ line of corrosion-resistant stainless steel air-operated double diaphragm (AODD) pumps to include stainless steel ANSI/DIN welded flanges. The flanges are available in vertical and forward-facing orientations and feature a rotatable design that simplifies connection to process piping. The pumps range from 1/4” to 3” connections and produce flow rates up to 300 gallons per minute. Configurable in a wide variety of pump body materials and wetted elastomers, Husky AODD pumps are engineered to be compatible with challenging fluid characteristics, such as low and high temperatures, high levels of abrasives, and caustic and corrosive materials.
