Solenoid Operated Micro Pumps
Bio-Chem Solenoid Operated Micro-Pump is a device designed to provide a precise, repeatable and discrete dispensed volume of fluid. The pumps use a flexible diaphragm to isolate the solenoid actuation mechanism from the fluid path. Since all wetted components in the fluid path are made entirely from chemically-inert materials, these pumps are particularly suitable for use in highly aggressive and / or high purity fluid applications, such as in analytical chemistry and clinical diagnostics.

The flow path in the Solenoid Operated Micro-Pump is isolated from the operating mechanism by a flexible diaphragm. When the solenoid is energized, the diaphragm is retracted, creating a partial vacuum within the pump body. This pulls liquid through the inlet check valve (A) and simultaneously closes the outlet check valve (B). When the solenoid is de-energized a spring pushes the diaphragm down, expelling a discrete volume of liquid through check valve B while simultaneously closing check valve A.
Bio-Chem Valve™ Solenoid Operated Micro-Pumps are self-priming devices. At start-up, pumps are able to draw air. The suction created by the pumps is sufficient to pull liquids from an unpressurized container located up to 1.3m beneath the pump.
Solenoid Operated Micro-Pumps require a complete on-off cycle for each discrete dispense. Repeatedly cycling the solenoid, creates a pulsed flow.
