The less the amount of material to be mixed, the greater the challenge for the dosing system: Due to the World’s increasing miniaturisation in areas such as electronics and the associated high demand for ever smaller and more precise dosing, preeflow has developed the eco-DUO330. This system provides the answer to numerous questions from application engineers, material manufacturers, plant engineers and product developers. Be it in medical technology, optics and photonics, the manufacture of electronic components or in the field of biochemistry and the production of semi-conductors.
Adherence to the exact mixing ratios of the 2 component materials and its precise coverage can greatly influence the processes and applications from time to time. Even small deviations can negatively affect the desired results. Compounds harden only partially, adhesive bonds do not reach their load limit and, in the worst case, chemical reactions from the materials could have an unforeseeable impact on the user.
With the newly developed eco-DUO330, dosing quantities of 0.005 ml (per shot) is achievable. Irrespective of temperature, time, pressure and viscosity – dosed as a dot or bead. Therefore, the smallest quantities can be created at that very moment. The microprocessor-controlled system creates a dosing accuracy of ± 1 % and repeatability of over 99 %. And this whole process is reliable and reproducible.
The Neptune Series MP7000 has been engineered from the ground up to be more robust and durable than similar mechanical diaphragm pump designs. The Series MP7000 pump incorporates the ruggedness of a hydraulic diaphragm metering pump, eliminates the need for intermediate fluid or hydraulic oil to actuate the diaphragm and reduces the potential for gearbox oil to contaminate the process. Series MP7000 pumps also feature a finned gearbox that dissipates the heat created during normal operation more readily than other designs, oversized check valves that improve performance and minimize friction losses, and rugged bronze gears for quite-running and long service life. Additionally, the straight-through flow design of the Series MP7000 liquid end and the elimination of the contour plate results in improved flow characteristics, making the pump the ideal solution for pumping difficult chemicals such as viscous fluids, shear-sensitive fluids and fluids with suspended solids.
The new Series MP7100 is a mechanically actuated diaphragm metering pump. The MP7100 pump incorporates the ruggedness of a hydraulic diaphragm metering pump, eliminates the need for intermediate fluid or hydraulic oil to actuate the diaphragm and reduces the potential for gearbox oil to contaminate the process. The result is a pump design that provides accurate dosing of a wide range of mild to aggressive chemicals, including those used in municipal water and wastewater treatment.
The central component of the dispense module is a micro annular gear pump (mzr-pump), that is already working very precise in laboratory automation and diagnostics. mzr-pumps are characterized by low pulse flow and a service life of several years. By using these rotary positive displacement pumps, pipetting of the smallest liquid amounts during the dosing process is possible as well as rinsing with high flow rates.
The size of the module corresponds to half the syringe pumps format. It combines pump, filter and valve. With the help of a microcontroller the module can process the same programming commands as a syringe pump.
The pneumatic non-contact dispensing systems P-Jet and P-Dot controllers jet low- to high-viscosity fluids with great precision and repeatability. They are designed for use in many types of applications and multiple industries including
- and medical.
ProMinent is setting new standards in accuracy and reliability with the new solenoid driven diaphragm metering pump gamma/ X: The first metering pump in its class to be driven by a cleverly controlled solenoid and independently ensures a smooth metering process at any time. Unlike conventional technologies, the gamma/ X does not need interference-resistant components to measure pressure or detect hydraulic faults.
ProMinent presents its new metering pump at Aquatech Amsterdam 2015 on stand 7.450 in hall 7 between 03-06 November 2015.
The new solenoid driven metering pump is suitable for metering between 1 ml/h and 45 l/h at a back pressure of 25 bar to 2 bar. The stroke length can be electronically set at between 0 and 100%.
The hydraulic diaphragm metering Orlita Evolution form an integrated product range with stroke lengths of 15 to 40 mm. This covers the capacity range from 3 to 7,400 l/h at 400 to 10 bar. A wide range of drive versions is available, including some for use in Ex-zone 1 and 2. The Orlita Evolution product range is designed to comply with API 675. This pump serie meets the most exacting safety requirements as an extremely robust hydraulic diaphragm metering pump. It stands out thanks to its PTFE multi-layer diaphragm with integral diaphragm rupture warning system and unique diaphragm position control. Its modular construction offers extremely good flexibility in terms of applications.
These systems have been designed for the application of fertilizers, herbicides, fungicides, insecticides and other strong chemicals. The chemical tanks have a sloped bottom for complete drainage and ease of cleaning. All tanks larger than 55 gallons are fitted into double-wall containment and with double wall injection lines to protect the environment. A cover shields the pump, piping and electrical controls from the elements and excludes rain and debris, which allows 100% reclaim of uncontaminated chemical in the event of a spill or broken line.
In the existing chemical installation in a Wacker Chemie plant, the safety-related design of the relevant pump systems had to be thoroughly renovated. One of the basic requirements for the redesign was that diaphragm pumps themselves had to remain absolutely hermetically tight, even at high working temperatures of +170 °C during normal operations and brief peaks as high as +200 °C. As a result, Lewa developed an individual solution to meet the specific customer requirements.
“As an additional security measure, the pressure-free hydraulic reservoir behind the diaphragm is blanketed with nitrogen as a protective gas”, explains Lewa project lead Rainer Sonnenfroh.
