Portable PULSATING FLOW PUMP ALPHA FLOW EC-1 is a pump system that can generate both the steady flow and pulsating flow. Although EC-1 was originally designed for medical tests,this unit can be used for other purposes as well.

EC-1 can be operated by a tablet that is included in the kit.
The dedicated application allows an operator to turn on/off the steady flow or the pulsating flow, to increase or decrease the disgorging volume, to add or reduce BPM (beats per minute) and to change the pulsating pattern.


EC-1 is fitted with an external pressure sensor as a standard to gauge the disgorging pressure. The pressure figure is digitally displayed and the change in pressure is displayed on a graph in real time. When the pressure is not shown as zero in the stationary mode, adjust it to zero by a calibration button that is to be displayed in that situation.

Synchronizing pulse signals can be sent to ECG as an external output, which is a standard feature. It can be used for CT and MRI as well.

Input/output circuits are optionally available. Please contact us for details.
