Q What is the lowest flow rate that can be achieved with the micropump mp6? A The lowest flow rate is very dependent on the conditions in the customers test system. Generally a flow rate of about 20 µl/min for liquids can be achieved in most cases. With thorough optimization much lower rates can be achieved. In […]
Q What type of electronics has Bartels available? A For laboratory applications, there is the extended micropump control mp-x. It is able to drive one micropump of the mp6-series or two micropumps mp5 with different driving signals, the full range of amplitude and frequency manipulation and has an USB interface. For quick starting with the micropumps, the […]
Q Why do the micropumps mp6 generate a sound? A The piezo actuators are driven by the electronic controller connected to the micropump. When the driving signal has fast amplitude changes and the set frequency is in the range of human perception, a sound can be heard. If a sinusoidal signal is used within low frequencies (e.g. […]
Q How can the micropump mp6 be controlled with the mp6-EVA board? A The evaluation board enables the use of one micropump of the mp6-series based on the mp6-OEM controller. Next to present standard parameter (270 Vpp, 100 Hz) the mp6-EVA also allows to adjust the pump parameters with the use of three jumpers directly on board […]
Q Which material gets in contact with the fluid when using the micropump mp6? A All wetted materials inside the standard mp6 are PPSU (or PP with the mp6-pp). Please note that the mp6 is made with material of two grades of PPSU; natural-transparent and black. The lid is the natural grade with some blue color additive. […]
