A metering pump can be used to move a volume of liquid in a specific period of time. Users often believe this provides them an accurate pumped volume. However, there are some disadvantages of using only metering pumps without a flow meter. In this blog, I will share the details with you.
Deviations of 10-15% are considered normal. In specific cases a metering pump can deviate even more than 50%. Inaccuracies like this are caused by the many changing process conditions, such as:
Using this solution will mitigate the issues in the original solution, however it introduces other disadvantages:
With this solution you do not need to include the metering pump in the control system, just give a set point demand to the mass flow meter and it will drive the pump to achieve the desired dose or flow. This solution will give you several advantages, such as:
Pump control can offer accurate dosing solutions for house hold chemicals like detergents and cleaning products. Learn more about a flow meter & pump combination.
In all applications where the performance of a metering pump is critical, I advise you to add an additional flow meter. Especially in processes where a liquid is dispensed into a container or bottle or into the main stream of a process. It offers many benefits: accuracy, repeatability, traceability, documented certainty, less waste, advanced data analysis, no recalibration and savings on pump costs.
Adding a flow meter to a metering pump can be relevant in a chemical lab setup, in a food pilot plant or even in a random skid.
Commonly, quality control tests on liquids are carried out randomly on a small percentage of the dosings to ensure general compliance. If you use a flow meter to control the dosage of your liquid, you can achieve up to 100% quality control checking of your product with reduced human impact.
Additives or performance chemicals are usually precious and have a huge impact on the result of the process. The significant improvement of this process, will then lead to a high-performance result and less waste. This is of a huge advantage in many applications, time-wise and cost-wise.
