German pump manufacturer HNP Mikrosysteme has introduced the MZR Touch Control module, a new combined drive and control module for miniature positive displacement pumps.
Available through UK pump supplier Michael Smith Engineers (MSE), the MZR Touch Control module complements the six series of MZR micro-annular gear pumps, also available through MSE. It is designed for handling many different liquid media and viscosities and delivers accurate, pulse-free pumping. Applications include chemical, medical and pharmaceutical processing and biotechnology, as well as ink and paint dosing, portable power sources, fuel cells and aerospace.
The Touch Control Module features a clear graphical user interface which supplements the present control of MZR dosing pumps via a laptop or PC and can be used for most MZR pump sizes and series with low to medium power drives.
The module is made from die-cast aluminium and is compact, measuring 147mm (L) x 141mm (W) x 37mm (H) and enables easy and versatile operation of micro-annular gear pumps. Users can select dosage volumes ranging from 0.25µl and flow rate ranges of 1µl / min up to 288 ml / min.
