The PuraLev single-use magnetic drive centrifugal pump kits feature a low shear-force design ideal for pumping shear-sensitive liquids and cells in biotech and pharmaceutical applications. The stand-alone systems include a drive with a PLC interface, and single-use pump head. The PLC interface provides remote speed control by analog and digital signals.
The pumps are specially designed with no bearings to wear out or seals to break. The pump’s impeller is magnetically coupled and suspended, contact-free inside sealed casing. The continuous flow rate and pressure are controlled by electronically regulating the rpm, keeping pulsation to a minimum.
The impeller and housing are made from a biocompatible (FDA, USP Class VI, BSE/TSE and Animal free) polypropylene material that can be gamma irradiated. Pumps are available with either a Tri-Clamp® or barb fitting single-use pump head which can be inserted and removed easily with a bayonet socket.
Four of the kits (72072-10, 72072-12, 72072-14, and 72072-16) include the PuraLev LCO-i100 touch screen console which integrates the pumps with ultrasonic flow sensors. The console features an embedded PC with a 7-in. multi-touch screen and comes with software for flow control, configuration, and monitoring of various sensors. The console can be place on a table or mounted on a wall. The advanced kits (72072-12 and 72072-16) also include the LEVIFLOW® clamp-on flow sensors.
