P2CS / Syringe Pump Comparison Calculator
Compare the different stabilization times of syringe pumps and our Precision Pressure Control System P2CS for a set value pressure step of 50mbar with pure water at 25 °C. The calculated time estimates the time to reach 90% of the final flow rate. Hysteresis and mechanical tolerances are not taken into account, but consider that these factors are degrading the response time even more.
