Less Space, More Power For New Micropump Drives

26.11.2013

The compact and lightweight Micropump range of magnet drive pumps are now available with all-new electromagnetic brushless DC motors which provide increased torque and power for liquids handling applications requiring higher flow rates.

Less Space, More Power For New Micropump Drives

Michael Smith Engineers

Available through Michael Smith Engineers the new EagleDrive model MS option is a compact, high performance drive providing a speed range of 500 to 10,000 rpm, torque of 70 mNm, power of 48 watts and weighs just 0.3kg.

The new MS drive can be coupled with the GA, GAF and GJ Series of Micropump’s stainless steel, leak free gear pump heads, covering capacities up to 1800 ml/min and differential pressures to 17 Bar. The MS drive can also be integrated with Micropump’s abrasion resistant centrifugal pump, the CA Series, for circulating and transfer applications requiring higher flows and lower differential pressures.

The small package size and increased power opens up new options for designers along with easier integration into system designs, while fewer moving parts means higher reliability and longer life. Other features include speed adjustment using 0-5 vdc signal, over temperature, under voltage and internal fault output signals, forward and reverse rotation, surface mounted electronics, built-in microprocessor control and tachometer output for simple system integration.

The MS model is supplied with a standard smaller foot mounting bracket although this can be removed if mounting to the plastic housing is preferred. The drive can be run on a wide range of power supply voltages from 10V to 38 VDC and has an operating temperature range of -40ºC to +120ºC.

Micro-Metering Pumps with Linear Motors for Dynamic Metering

09.07.2024 -

The trade audience first became acquainted with micro-metering pumps with linear motors four years ago at Achema. Now this technology is living up to expectations in practice. Use cases often include needing to meter small and micro-quantities precisely, apply a highly dynamic metering profile or handle a range of different processes. In addition, many users are looking for low-wear pumps with minimal maintenance as a standalone solution. Micro-metering pumps, which are highly compact, flexible and reliable, are ideal for such cases.
