The FP 150 series is based on a 5-diaphragm design that combines the advantages of diaphragm pump technology with the benefits of gear pump technology. The FP 150 diaphragm liquid pump series is self-priming, safe to run dry and at the same time the very low pulsation level makes secondary measures to avoid pulsing superfluous. Depending on the system set-up and speed, the values at the pump outflow at nominal flow rate are below 150 mbar, meaning that sensitive media are transferred gently.

Features & Benefits

These are the main advantages of the FP 150 diaphragm liquid pump series:

  • Low pulsation
  • Excellent linearity
  • Self-priming and can run dry
  • Gentle conveying of sensitive media
  • Long lifetime, no maintenance
  • Able to transfer aggressive media
  • IP 65

Your advantages when using a liquid pump with smooth flow technology

The FP 150 liquid pump series is based on a multi-diaphragm technology with a 5-diaphragm design. This has the advantage that by interlacing the flow and the pulses generated by each of the 5 diaphragms, a very high and yet smooth flow is achieved in the diaphragm liquid pump. This helps to efficiently transfer liquids through long tubing with smaller diameters, since smooth flow pumps reduce pressure loss. It also minimizes vibration of the tubes, which can be bothersome to the process. Thanks to very low pump pulsation, they enable an efficient and gentle flow of high liquid volumes. Due to this the FP 150 series is part of the KNF smooth flow pump series.

Possible Areas of Use

The KNF FP 150 diaphragm liquid pump series is ideal for these applications for two reasons: Firstly, they handle fluids very gently, ensuring that their specific characteristics do not change. Secondly, they can handle chemically aggressive or abrasive media, e.g., ink containing particles with ease. This is important in terms of service life and reliability.

What makes the FP 150 Diaphragm Liquid Pump Series Outstanding

Another winning feature of the FP 150 diaphragm liquid pump series is the infinitely adjustable flow rate with outstanding linearity between 10 and 100 percent. Also outstanding for the FP 150 diaphragm liquid pump series is the aesthetic black design with clear lines and flow direction. This supports not only modern appearance but it is also easy to clean. 

Thanks to the modular system, the FP 150 series is available in a range of different versions. With a choice of EPDM, PTFE or FFKM diaphragms, the pump can be equipped for applications involving very aggressive media.  

Convince yourself of the outstanding features of the FP 150 series.

Integrated BLDC motor
Wobbling eccentric
5-diaphragm technology
Integrated BLDC motor
Supporting the wide flow controllability provided by the smooth flow of the 5 diaphragms, a brushless DC motor integrated in a tight IP65 alloy housing allows for precise adjustment of the flow rate between 0.2 to 1.5 l/min. The advantages of BLDC motors in smooth flow pumps include nearly wear-free drives, a long service life, and quiet operation with minimal vibration.
Wobbling eccentric
At speeds of up to 4,000 rpm, the wobbling eccentric transforms rotational movement of the motor to linear motion needed to drive the diaphragms. All this with generating almost no vibration and noise, and with only minimal forces acting on the motor hardware. This ensures a long, maintenance-free and highly reliable performance of the diaphragm liquid pump in the customer’s system.
5-diaphragm technology
By interlacing the flow and the pulses generated by each of the 5 diaphragms, a very high and yet smooth flow is achieved in the diaphragm liquid pump. This helps to efficiently transfer liquids through long tubing with smaller diameters, since smooth flow pumps reduce pressure loss. It also minimizes vibration of the tubes, which can be bothersome to the printing process.
