Pressure Controlled Reservoir - PCR
For increased precision and high throuhput
The PipeJet® dispensing modules P9 and P4.5 can be upgraded with the Pressure Controlled Reservoir to maximize the dispensing accuracy and precission. Furthermore, it increases the maximum dispensing frequency and range of dispensable liquids.
The Pressure Controlled Reservoir actively feeds the liquid to the PipeJet dispensing modules. This makes the PCR the perfect addon for high throughput applications.
PCR working principle
The core component of the PCR is a pressure sensor which is included in the reservoir cap and samples the reservoir pressure. As soon as the system detects a change in the reservoir pressure the peristaltic pump will start to feed liquid/air* in order to compensate the pressure change.
