Watson-Marlow unveils panel mount pumps with DriveSure™ technology

Watson-Marlow Fluid Technology Group is introducing a new range of panel-mount OEM pumps featuring DriveSure™ brushless DC gear motors with fully integrated speed controllers. Designed for use by medical device specialists serving the surgical ablation market, the RXMD DriveSure range provides a single source solution for OEMs requiring pumps, motors, gearboxes and drives.

Performance boost

The RXMD DriveSure is able to deliver very low flows at high back-pressure up to 6 bar (87psi) through catheters or needles in cooling applications. It also features an innovative mechanism that offers improved flow accuracy. Furthermore, a tube holder ensures the tube locates in the right position every time the safety lid is closed, providing rapid, trouble-free tube loading. This minimises the risk of human errors and safeguards the process.

In surgical ablation applications, the pumps can be used to deliver cooling fluid, which in turn produces a more effective treatment and prevents scarring. The addition of DriveSure is seen as a huge advantage as it means OEM engineers can bring products to market faster and with less engineering cost by eliminating the time, design uncertainty and risks associated with the separate specification of pump, motor, gearbox and drive. DriveSure is highly adaptable and directly accepts market-standard analogue control signals.

Reduced risk

A further benefit is that engineers can eliminate the inherent risks of buying various system components from different manufacturers, with the safety net of a single, comprehensive two-year warranty for the drive (the pumphead comes with a one-year warranty). Importantly, this includes a performance guarantee for the complete pump and full integration support.

Ultimately, RXMD DriveSure represents a ‘fit and forget’ solution, while the use of Watson-Marlow’s own gearbox provides the customer with excellent torque and silent running.

RXMD DriveSure is available in several variants able to match customer flow, pressure and rotation direction requirements.
