Masterflex® peristaltic pumps are used in a variety of applications from the laboratory to the manufacturing plant to the field. Specific industries using these pumps include pharmaceutical and biotech, research and development, industrial and manufacturing, food and beverage, and environmental.
At times, our team of application specialists is challenged to help select specific product solutions for requested applications. Here is one case in which the Masterflex® L/S® digital drive met the requirements for the job.
A pharmaceutical manufacturer needed to dispense volumes of 300 mL in 15 seconds or less repeating three times per minute; and 20 mL in 2 seconds or less repeating 20 times per minute. The desired accuracy target for both applications was ±1.5%. The efficiency of simultaneously pumping multiple channels was critical.
Our solution: The manufacturer now uses a Masterflex® L/S® digital drive with an L/S four-channel pump head . Size L/S 15 two-stop BioPharm Plus silicone tubing met the smaller flow requirement; while size L/S 35 two-stop BioPharm Plus silicone tubing met the larger flow requirement. BioPharm Plus silicone tubing is recommended for high-accuracy dispensing applications due to its exceptional flow stability over time. Careful calibration of the drive and the synchronous multichannel flow capability of the pump head enabled the manufacturer to meet the accuracy target.
