The labscale tangential flow filtration (TFF) system is made up of the peristaltic pump drive and pump head, two pressure gauges, one analytical balance, a tangential flow filter and a valve connected to a control module.
The key to the project is the design of the pump drive and the control module for TFF system.
The pump drive is made up of a cabinet containing a speed reducer, a variable-frequency drive and a shaft coupling. The peristaltic pump is intended for Watson Marlow pumphead models.
The control module consists of a supporting structure for assembly, connection and wiring of system components, and a cabinet with an Argentine Open Industrial Computer (CIAA, for its acronym in Spanish) board and a valve to regulate flow rate.
