Masterflex peristaltic pumps with open-head sensor interlock, or a retrofit system for existing pumps, by Cole-Parmer, adds extra protection for operators in all industries

Masterflex L/S with open-head sensor interlock

Masterflex® L/S® with open-head sensor interlock automatically shuts off when the pump head is opened.

The Cole-Parmer® Masterflex peristaltic pumps with open-head sensor interlock adds an extra layer of protection for technicians and operators tasked with tubing changes and routine maintenance. It is ideal for the pharmaceutical industry and other industries using peristaltic pumps. A retrofit system is available for adding this feature to pumps currently installed.

This technology is now available on Masterflex Easy-Load® pump heads compatible with all L/S® and I/P® drives. The extra layer of protection is particularly beneficial to prevent unexpected remote operation—when the pump is connected to a programmable logic controller or supervisory control and data acquisition system—similar to lockout/tagout procedures. Open-head sensors can also safeguard inexperienced or infrequent users of peristaltic pumps from injury while loading or changing tubing.

A retrofit solution is also available to upgrade existing Masterflex peristaltic pumps.
