to batch-programming these pumps can be operated as stand-alone
units for on the spot operation, independent of a PC
process operation. No need for a PC
Process dispensing pumps are ideal for safe dispensing and filling
applications, especially in a dusty, humid, corrosive environment
and in clean room areas. Individual, application based dispensing
and pumping sequences can be programmed directly into a PC (batch-programming)
and subsequently downloaded (via the RS232 interface) into one of
the four program memories available on the pump drive. Similar to
a simple PLC-type controller, the pump and its program will provide
on the spot operation as stand-alone units and freely disconnected
from the PC. This makes these ISMATEC pump drives extremely suitable
for fluid processing requiring accuracy, hygienic conditions, crosslinkability,
reliability and expandability. ISMATEC pumps and drives are suitable
for applications and processes used in chemistry and biotechnology
as well as the pharmaceutical, food and beverage industry.
The MCP Process
dispensing pump's analog interface can respond appropriately to
input signals obtained from level, pressure or temperature sensors.
Example: Excessive, uncontrolled pressure increases (e.g. caused
by clogged membrane filters) can be avoided by pre-setting a maximum
pressure level, which is never exceeded due to an automatically
controlled drive speed or flow rate.
The MCP Process
drive housing is constructed of durable stainless steel and is completely
dust-tight and able to protect the pump against water jets from
all directions. This feature allows the pump drive to meet the IP
65 protection rating. Since the motor does not need a ventilator,
no air interchange with the environment takes place, and drive and
electronics are not exposed to corrosive gases or vapour.
Process pump models are available as tubing pump (MCP Process, 1µl/min
to 3700 ml/min, up to 24 channels), gear pump (MCP-Z Process, 1
to 6540 ml/min) or ceramic rotary piston pump (MCP-CPF Process,
25µl/min to 2300 ml/min). All three-drive models are available
with a variety of numerous interchangeable pump heads.
