Beamex introduces new calibration pumps

Beamex has expanded its pump range with two new pumps: PGL and PGPH. The PGL pump is a low-pressure calibration pump with excellent possibilities for very fine adjustments. The pump is ideal in industries where accurate, low-pressure generation is needed, such as the pharmaceutical industry. The PGHP pump is a pneumatic, high-pressure generator with air as the pressure medium. This pump is a practical, high-quality solution in calibrations where using liquids is forbidden, such as the gas industry.

The new pumps complete Beamex's range of pressure generation equipment. "Beamex is now able to supply a complete range of user-friendly calibration pumps for a broader range of pressure calibration applications," Beamex's Product Manager, Heikki Laurila, describes.

The PGPH is a hand-operated, pneumatic, (uses air as the pressure medium) high-pressure calibration pump for table-top use. The pump is extremely efficient in generating pressure up to 140 bar (2,000 psi) quickly and effortlessly. It takes far less than a minute to reach the maximum pressure. The PGPH is also able to generate vacuum. It is equipped with a fine-adjustment control providing excellent fine-tuning of generated pressure, and two hand-tightened connectors allowing fast and easy connections without the need for any tools.

The PGL is a hand-operated calibration pump for low pressure using air as its pressure medium. The pressure range of the PGL is ±400 mbar / ±160 iwc.
The pump is equipped with an isothermal bellows chamber for reducing possible environmental temperature changes during the calibration process. With the screw-operated volume control and fine adjustment, an extremely accurate and stable pressure adjustment is possible, enabling attunement to 0.1 Pa.

BEAMEX is a leading, worldwide provider of calibration solutions that meet even the most demanding requirements of process instrumentation.
