New Diaphragm Vacuum Pump N 816

High-performance aspiration of liquid waste from diagnostic procedures

With its liquid and vacuum pumps, KNF covers all established methods for the transfer of liquid sample waste for professional disposal. The new vacuum pump N 816 is ideal for the indirect method using collecting containers.

In order to supply biological samples for a valid diagnosis, many working steps are required, using a variety of reagents as well as solvents and cleaning agents. After analysis, this mixture consisting of chemicals and the organic materials examined must be removed and transferred for disposal.


Chemically resistant and humidity resistant  

The diaphragm vacuum pump N 816 was developed by KNF especially for the handling of this liquid waste. As it is not possible to predict the chemical composition of the liquid waste, the pump head components that come into contact with the medium are made from the chemically resistant materials PPS, EPDM, PTFE or FFPM. This pump will not be damaged even by constant contact with humidity and condensate.


Above-average flow rate 

This diaphragm pump ensures fast and reliable emptying of the collection containers for liquid waste with a flow rate of 16 l/min and an ultimate vacuum of 100 mbar. Even multiple collecting containers can be emptied with a single pump. Its performance is disproportionately high in relation to its compact size.


Fully traceable components 

This vacuum diaphragm pump is designed to fulfill the traceability requirements of medical devices manufacturers. Among the various types of motor is a brushless DC motor developed in-house by KNF. This ensures comprehensive control of the supply chain and thus full traceability as required.
