Fig. 1: Notice sticker
Handling dangerous media
When transferring dangerous media, observe the safety regulations when handling these media.
Handling flammable media
Be aware that the pumps are not designed to be explosion-proof.
Make sure the temperature of the medium is always sufficiently
below the ignition temperature of the medium, to avoid ignition or
explosion. This also applies for unusual operational situations.
Note that the temperature of the medium increases when the pump
compresses the medium.
Hence, make sure the temperature of the medium is sufficiently
below the ignition temperature of the medium, even when it is
compressed to the maximum permissible operating pressure of the
pump. The maximum permissible operating pressure of the pump
is stated in the technical specifications (see chapter 4).
If necessary, consider any external sources of energy, such as
radiation, that may add heat to the medium.
In case of doubt, consult the KNF customer service.
Environmental protection
Store all replacement parts in a protected manner and dispose of
them properly in accordance with the applicable environmental
protection regulations. Observe the respective national and international regulations. This especially applies to parts contaminated
with toxic substances.

Diaphragm pumps transfer, compress (depending on pump version) and evacuate gases and vapors.
The elastic diaphragm (4) is moved up and down by the eccentric
(5) and the connecting rod (6). In the downward stroke it aspirates
the gas to be transferred via the inlet valve (2). In the upward
stroke, the diaphragm presses the medium out of the pump head
via the outlet valve (1). The transfer chamber (3) is hermetically
separated from the pump drive (7) by the diaphragm.

Returns
11. Returns
Pumps and systems used in laboratories and process-based
industries are exposed to a wide variety of conditions. This means
that the components contacting pumped media could become
contaminated by toxic, radioactive, or otherwise hazardous substances.
For this reason, customers who send any pumps or systems back
to KNF must submit a Health and safety clearance and decontamination form in order to avoid a hazardous situation for KNF employees. This Health and safety clearance and decontamination
form provides the following information, among other things:

physiological safety

whether medium-contacting parts have been cleaned

whether the equipment has been decontaminated

media that have been pumped or used
To ensure worker safety, work may not be started on pumps or
systems without a signed Health and safety clearance and decontamination form.
For optimal processing of a return, a copy of this declaration
should be sent in advance via e-mail, regular mail, or fax to KNF
Customer Service (refer to final page for address). In order to avoid
endangering employees who open the shipment's packaging,
despite any residual hazards, the original version of the Health and
safety clearance and decontamination form must accompany the
delivery receipt on the outside of the packing.
The template for the Health and safety clearance and decontamination form is included with these Operating Instructions and may
also be downloaded from the KNF website.
The customer must specify the device type(s) and serial number(s)
in the Health and safety clearance and decontamination form in
order to provide for the unambiguous assignment of the Declaration to the device that is sent to KNF.
In addition to the customer's declaration of physiological safety,
information about operating conditions and the customer's application are also of importance to ensure that the return shipment is
handled appropriately. Therefore, the Health and safety clearance
and decontamination form requests this information as well.
