THE newly released Burkert micro pump is able to dose, batch, feed or control fluidic flow as low as one micro-litre.
It achieves this by incorporating unique 'flipper' technology solenoid valves, coupled directly to the micropump module via a scientifically balanced manifold.
The flipper valves act as 'active' bi-directional feed valves, in place of 'passive' non-return valve technology.
Applications for this technology include analytical equipment, environmental monitoring, pharmaceuticals, chemical dosing, portable machinery and aesthetics as well as emerging markets such as biotechnology.
This product is mechanically simpler in design than existing methods; is totally modular for multiple stacked applications; is up to 90% faster than existing methods; is up to 90% lower cost than existing methods; and is up to 80% smaller in size.
