New Modular Gear Pump Metering & Mixing System
METER MIX has introduced the LiquidFlow 30M, a metering and mixing system that uses modular gear pump technology. The machine is primarily used for potting two-component resins, and the company reports that it provides several benefits to customers compared to conventional piston pump systems.
According to METER MIX, the modular gear pump system is more versatile for low-mid flow applications than piston systems. It can dispense continuously, as larger volumes are not limited to the size of the pistons. It consistently processes low- to medium-viscosity materials with strong process stability, meaning less stress on the machine and a more reliable dispensing process, reports the company.
Customers further benefit from a high degree of flexibility, easy handling, quiet operation, and quick delivery times (typically within five weeks) according to METER MIX. With the gear pump system, customers have quick access to multiples recipes and programs, according to the company. The built-in recipe function provides up to 50 pre-set shot sizes, flow rates, and ratios that can be easily stored on the control panel under the customer reference name or number.
