The 580 pump is a multipurpose, multifunctional pump available with three pump heads optimised for:
Analytical HPLC with flow range from 0,01 to 10 ml and
Semi preparative, with flow range up to 50 ml and
Preparative HPLC with flow ranges from 1 to 100 cc/min upon exchange of pump head.
Can work as
Four solvents gradient with low pressure mixing concept, and/or
High pressure binary gradient formation.
With flow rate ranging from 0.01 to 10.00 ml/min. and a pressure limit of 40 MPa (400 Bar/5.800psi) this pump is suited for most analytical applications in liquid chromatography. It is designed following the KONIK HPLC 500 Isokinetic Flow Delivery principle we pioneered in 1985. This implies the use of dual pistons working in series to minimize pulsation with an improved pulsation dampening algorithm, while improving solvent mixing in the gradient forming process.
The KONIK HPLC 580 Pump facilitates highly reproducible and accurate gradient forming by mixing at low pressure the chosen solvents prior to introducing the mixture in the pump head. This is done by the use of very fast, microelectrosolenoid valves under computer control. User selects the solvents and defines the desired gradient and built in algorithm does the rest (see the KONIK 580 Solvent Manager).
