Pump Motion Solutions
Allied Motion offers a wide range of motors designed specifically for use in pump applications. From small medical pumps in dialysis machines to fuel pumps in LPG-powered vehicle fleets to military cooling pumps for pilots, Allied Motion’s motors are relied upon for their robustness and long service life.
In the control of gas turbine engines used in aircraft auxiliary power units (APU) that must operate at tens-of-thousands of rpm, fuel pump frequency response and reliability are two key design parameters.
Allied Motion designed a magnetically-coupled brushless pump motor to drive a disposable integrated oxygenator module, the “heart” of this innovative heart bypass system.
Strict emission regulations like Euro 6 and US Tier 2 Bin 5 have lead to the deployment of Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR) technology for heavy duty, and even passenger, diesel-powered vehicles. SCR dramatically reduces CO2, NOx and particulate matter in exhaust gases.
CT scanners have become virtually indispensable as a medical analysis tool. Modern CT scanners, especially newer multi-slice models, allow much faster, higher resolution scanning.
Heavy bolted joints require torque levels only available with hydraulics. Electrically powered portable hydraulic torque wrenches offer the power needed for this application along with the convenience of a compact, portable unit.
Left ventricular heart assist devices (LVAD) were developed to help heart transplant candidates while they await the availability of a heart, and also for permanent support for end stage heart failure patients.
As environmental concerns rise and the use of alternative fuels is encouraged, Liquid Petroleum Gas (LPG) systems are increasingly being deployed in taxis, transit buses, and similar vehicle fleets.
Military helicopter pilots can be equipped with special flight suits that incorporate microclimate cooling. Cooling fluid is pumped through the suits by a special pump system driven by a brushless DC motor, keeping the pilot’s body temperature at near normal in harsh environmental conditions.
Small portable and battery-operated syringe pumps are used extensively to administer infusions associated with chemotherapy, post operative and chronic pain control, antibiotics and other medications given parenterally.
Modern RVs and personal luxury buses pack a lot of “at-home” conveniences into a small space through the use of electrically-powered systems like slide-outs, bed stows and lifts, jacking and awning systems, and heating/cooling and water pumping systems.
