ACS Show Wrap Up

ACS Final Notes

Car-May is excited to report back with lots of good news from the annual ACS show. We were pleasantly surprised with a great turn out and lots of foot traffic through the booth this year.  Some exciting things that went on this year at the show include the launch of our newly updated products with fully integrated touch screens, heated manifolds, Hasteloy Manifolds for corrosive environments, and our biggest product launch of our new product package that demonstrates continuous flow reactor systems.  This system included two of the Car-May NovaSync systems, micro-flow reactor, pressure sensors and chiller all for less then half of most competitor packages.  Soon to come will be pictures and demonstrations of these new and updated products. Please follow us on Twitter, Facebook and LinkedIn for upcoming company news and updates.

Car-May is actively involved in many different procedures to ensure the strength and quality of its products. One way this has been done is the annealing of the plastics and metals that are used to build the pump heads and systems. This is very important for increased strength and resistance towards chemical corrosion.

What is Annealing?

Annealing is the process of a heat treatment of certain types of materials including certain plastics and metals. This process is a heat treatment wherein a material is altered, causing changes in its properties such a strength and hardness. This procedure is done by heating the material to the recrytallization temperature, and then maintaining a suitable temperature, followed by a slow cooling process that does not warp or stress the material further.  

An example of this would be the annealing of the polycarbonate and PEEK manifolds used on the Car-May pumps. This increases resistance to chemicals and stress cracking and crazing.

New Hastelloy Manifold

Car-May has introduced the Hastelloy-C276 manifold for our 2-4 Base Station product. The Hastelloy manifold is highly resistant to a variety of aggressive chemicals, at elevated temperatures, that are used by the pharmaceutical and fine chemical industries. This is very important for the life span of our products. This new manifold also includes an integrated heating ability using two 50-watt hearing elements to prevent precipitation of saturated solutions. This temperature is controlled by a precision RTD (resistive temperature device) sensor.

Some of the aggressive chemicals that can be used include acids, bases and solvents. Some solvents being used currently include acetone, acetonitrile, DMSO (dimethyl-sulfoxide), cyclohexane, DMF (dimethyl-formamide), ethanol and heptane. The highly resistant manifold is not limited to the listed chemicals.

Welcome to the Car-May Company Blog

Car-May LLC was formed in 2005 and was originally located in Greeley Colorado. Our company is an innovative precision fluid control company. The products that we feature have a wide range of uses and are manufactured to specific industry needs.

Car-May’s hybrid piston-syringe pumps master a wide variety of liquid delivery tasks. Discrete-volume dispensing and continuous-flow metering functions are performed easily and accurately with the same pump.

With the Car-May design you will find internally sealed, valveless pump technology that integrates the durability of a piston pump with the accuracy of a syringe pump. This means that you are now able to move, measure, and control liquid with one compact model.
