Перистальтические насосы

Перистальтические насосы

Практичный, прецизионный и надежный насос, характеризующийся особой компактностью в своем классе.

PRECIFLOW, MULTIFLOW, HIFLOW, MAXIFLOW, MEGAFLOW Перистальтические насосы

Перистальтические насосы LAMBDA PRECIFLOW, MULTIFLOW, HIFLOW, MAXIFLOW и MEGAFLOW были разработаны для проведения процессов непрерывного культивирования. Данные продукты являются результатом двадцатилетнего опыта работы с лабораторным оборудованием, и систематического участия в устранении недостатков у других насосов на рынке.

В результате, был получен практичный, прецизионный и надежный насос, который является самым компактным в своем классе:

  • Скорость потока от 0.01 до 60 000 мл/час 
  • Цифровая регулировка скорости от 0 до 999
  • Новая технология двигателя
  • Расширенные возможности дистанционного управления
  • Значительно увеличен срок службы гибких трубок и снижена пульсация
  • Программируемая скорость потока (до 99 шагов)
  • С помощью программируемой «нулевой» скорости потока, насос может быть включен и выключен, без использования какого-либо таймера.
  • Насос очень экономичен в эксплуатации при использовании экономичных трубок без стопперов
  • Самый компактный перистальтический насос на рынке в своем классе.
  • Доступ к кинетике реакций, при использовании LAMBDA PUMP FLOW INTEGRATOR
  • Подключаемый источник питания низкого напряжения для максимально безопасной работы
  • Интерфейс RS-485 или RS-232 (опционально)
  • Программное обеспечение системы управления PNet (опционально)

Специальный механизм перистальтических насосов LAMBDA был разработан из-за отсутствия на рынке насосов, способных участвовать в процессе непрерывной ферментации продолжительностью до восьми недель.

Наиболее частые проблемы, с которыми сталкиваются пользователи традиционных перистальтических насосов, это:

  • Разрыв трубок, утечки
  • Уменьшение скорости потока с течением времени
  • Частое прерывание непрерывного процесса приносит много временных и денежных потерь

В ходе разработки нового механизма перистальтического насоса LAMBDA были проанализированы все аспекты существующих перистальтических насосов и, наконец, найдено эффективное решение этих проблем.

  • Ролики небольшого диаметра оказывают высокое давление на трубки и передавливают их в направлении вращения. Поэтому, трубки должны быть оснащены стопперами. Мы используем в своих конструкциях ролики очень большого диаметра - это приводит к устранению таких деформаций, предотвращая движение. Большая часть трубки сжимается с лучшим распределением давления. Эластичность трубки защищена. С тех пор, как были устранены причины бокового сжатия трубок, стопперы больше не требуются.
  • Вместо роликов мы используем специальные пластиковые шарикоподшипники со стеклянными шариками. Скольжение таких роликов требует лишь минимальных усилий. Установка характеризуется высокой коррозионной стойкостью, что отлично защищает части системы в случае розлива.
  • Специальный рычаг, смещённый относительно центра, изготовленный с использованием упругого нержавеющего материала, оказывает мягкую и плавную сжимающую нагрузку на трубки.
  • Конечное давление жидкости уменьшается путем сжатия до 0,1-0,2 МПа (в зависимости от используемых трубок). Давление не повышается, даже если заблокировать линию. 
  • Большая головка насоса имеет два центра асимметрии, что уменьшает пульсацию в несколько раз. Головка перистальтического насоса изготовлена из твердого, устойчивого к химическим воздействиям материала.
  • Шаговый двигатель или BLDC двигатель, приводимый в действие электронной системой с кварцевым регулятором, обеспечивает высокую точность расхода. Диапазон регулировки скорости потока 1:1000.
  • Существует несколько вариантов дистанционного управления. 
  • Уникальный интегратор расхода LAMBDA INTEGRATOR позволяет использовать перистальтические насосы LAMBDA в системах автоматического управления, таких как, например, ферментация, биокультивирование, химический синтез, фракционная перегонка и многое другое.
  • Занимаемая лабораторией площадь стоит недешево, поэтому мы сделали наши перистальтические насосы, как можно более компактными. Они в несколько раз меньше, чем другие перистальтические насосы, представленные на рынке и, следовательно, удобнее в использовании.
  • Движение потока в/из головки не будет производиться, даже без каких-либо фиксаций трубок.
  • Так как сжимание трубки проводится с соблюдением диапазона упругости, срок службы гибких трубок жизни значительно возрастает, а скорость потока остается постоянной.
  • Низкая стоимость трубок в сочетании с отличными результатами. Очень важно учитывать экономичное и выгодное использование трубок, например, перистальтический насос LAMBDA PRECIFLOW окупит свою стоимость после использования около 80 метров трубки.

What is the flow range?
Depending on the pump you select, our pumps offer a range of flow rates from 0.2 µl/min to 60,000 ml/hour.


Is the flow reversible?

Yes. The desired flow could achieved either by clock-wise or anticlock-wise rotation.


Could you please provide me information about the precision of dosing of a Lambda peristaltic pump? 
Accuracy of the pumps is about ±1% and the reproducibility is ±0.2% (electronics). Speed of rotation of the pump motor is regulated with a precision of quartz watch, which in-turn assures a high precision of the flow rate.


How would I calibrate the flow rate in peristaltic pumps?
The calibration of the pump flow rate with speed can be done to know the amount of the liquid pumped. It could be done in two ways: volumetric calibration of the peristaltic pump flow and pump flow calibration by weight. A short video of peristaltic pump flow calibration can be found at http://lambda.aws.omega.cz/peristaltic-pumps/#video.


Can I get multi-channel pumps?
We do not manufacture multi-channel pumps. Because with the multi-channel pumps it is not possible to achieve the precise and reproducible flow rates with only one pump motor. For the high precision of flow rate, it is not advisable to use the multi-channel pumps.
If one channel gets blocked then your whole project will get spoiled totally. Instead, we recommend having individual pumps.


Why do I need to use LAMBDA individual pumps over multi-channel pump?
It has more advantages over the multi-channel pumps. The most important thing to take into account is the precise, reproducible and steady flow rate.
If one channel gets blocked then your whole project will get spoiled totally.
The bench space required for the needed channel equivalent to individual LAMBDA Pumps is same as that of a single multi-channel pump, because of the compact structure of the LAMBDA Pumps. 
The individual pumps can be used in other projects too.


Do you have pumps on stock?
Yes, we have the pumps in stock. We maintain a large stock of instruments, in order to be able to quickly set them up in the desired configuration and to dispatch them in shortest possible time, within few days!
