A metering pump moves a precise amount of liquid during a specified time period yielding an accurate volumetric flow. Metering pumps are used to pump chemicals, solutions, etc- There are a range of different metering pump technologies, and generally the application drives the pump selection. Critical application criteria include the viscosity, temperature, discharge pressure, required flow rate, and compatible wetted path materials. Most metering pumps have a pump head and a motor with some adjustment mechanism either manual or electronic depending on the pump manufacturer.
Many metering pumps are piston driven. A piston driven pump is a positive displacement method where the piston displaces the fluid in the reservoir chamber. The stroke and internal volume of the pumpingchamber determine the dispense amount and flow rate. Often piston pumps have two check valves on the inlet and outlet. As the piston recedes in the pumping chamber a negative pressure or vacuum is generated which opens the inlet check valve and pulls fluid towards the pumping chamber. Once fluid has filled the reservoir and the pump begins the discharge stroke, the piston pushes the fluid out of the fluid chamber through the outlet and through the outlet check valve. Instrument Pump Inc.`s positive displacement piston pump uses a valveless rotating, reciprocating precision Ceramic Piston. Located on the piston is a flat which act as a valve. The benefit of a valveless piston pump is there are no valves to clog. A valveless piston pump is ideal for applications with high viscosities as well as fluids with particulate or colloidal systems
Compared with other metering pump technologies, valveless positive displacement metering pumps have a few key advantages:
