French biopharmaceutical firm selects pumps from Watson-Marlow Fluid Technology Group
Adds vacuum equipment, customised pumping systems ad leak detectors to Vacuum Solutions division
Every fluid has different handling requirements and some are easier to handle than others, but operational and maintenance issues can ease with the right type of pump. While one solution may not fit all pump applications, comparing the type of pump in use with a peristaltic pump is a place to start
Produces flow rates 20–30% better than other products in category, company says
Pumps specialist will strengthen its biopharmaceutical offering with the acquisition
Many pharmaceuticals products require pumps that can handle shear-sensitive liquids as well as liquids that can have an adverse affect on mechanical seals. The oscillating eccentric piston pump principle produces the pumping performance of a rotary positive displacement pump, but its action is far m
Suitable for single-use systems where contamination is unacceptable
Mass spectrometry and Scanning Electron Microscopy (SEM) rely on high quality vacuum to operate effectively and efficiently. Vacuum pump technology offers quiet operation, control, serviceability, uptime and reduced footprint, as well as being hermetically sealed and oil-free
They have been specifically developed to address stringent pharmaceutical testing requirements
Air operated double diaphragm (AODD) technology can be used for many applications including the complex fluid transfer needs encountered within the biopharmaceuticals industry. This article describes the evolution of the pump, explains its workings and maintenance and illustrates its use in applicat
Easy to install and maintain
As lab processes become automated, understanding the various pumping technologies is key to specifying the vacuum pump best suited to each application. Edwards highlights the various options
