Geared Pump metering equipment utilises the meshing of gears to pump fluid by displacement. Geared pump systems are commonly used in chemical installations to pump fluids with a high viscosity.
This type of metering system is well suited to most non-abrasive metering, mixing and dispensing applications, enabling continuous material flow without the need to re-charge.
Continuous flow can be achieved with virtually every Fluid Research geared pump dispensing system. The user can vary the flow over a broad range; using customer initiated pre-set programs selectable from an HMI user interface.
The practical maximum and minimum values for each system depend upon the size of the pumps installed, viscosity of the material and amount of filler.
