The FP 150 impresses with its 5-diaphragm design

If you are looking for a maintenance-free diaphragm pump with minimal pulsation and shearing force, look no further than KNF.

The FP 150 is the company’s second pump series based on a 5-membrane design that combines the advantages of diaphragm pump technology with the benefits of gear pump technology. The FP 150 is self-priming and 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.


Another winning feature of the new diaphragm liquid pump is the infinitely adjustable flow rate. The FP 150 boasts a maximum flow rate of 1.5 l/min, with outstanding linearity between 10% and 100% of this value. Not only that, but it runs smoothly and is capable of resisting a back pressure of up to 2 bar.


These specifications make the pump series particularly suitable for use in small cooling circuits such as X-ray machines or lithotripsy devices. The quiet and maintenance-free pump is ideal for applications carried out in close proximity to patients. Thanks to the KNF modular system, the FP 150 is available in a range of different versions.
