Electronic Metering Pumps
Electronic metering pumps have the ability to pump a variety of corrosive
liquids and chemicals as well as slurry and other fluids. Although there are different types of pumps (piston,
diaphragm and dosing are to name but a few), electronic metering pumps are driven by an electric power source.
Electronic metering pumps operate by way of something that is known as 'strokes'. In dual
stages, during the intake stroke the liquid is sucked in through the valve into the pump and then during the output
stroke, the liquid is pushed out of the pump through the valve with force. It is possible to adjust the speed at
which the flow of liquid is sucked in and forced out by a simple screw that is attached to the electronic metering
The Uses Of Electronic Metering Pumps
You can find electronic metering pumps being used in a wide variety of industries such
• Food manufacturing
Electronic metering pumps, as the name implies, runs off an electric motor that is in constant supply. When
selecting electronic pumps, it is important to consider what it will be used for and the environment that it
will be used in. As with other types of pumps one must realize that there are electronic pumps available that
are equipped to handle various capacities and flow of fluids, so make sure that you research the appropriate
size for your needs. In addition to this, electronic metering pumps may have two or more heads (as opposed to
one) for a faster flow rate.
Some Things To Consider When Selecting Electronic Metering
There are so many manufacturers of electronic metering pumps and some may be better than others in terms of value for money,
durability and speed of operation. For instance, not all electronic metering pumps operate at over 300 strokes
per minute. The more powerful the pump and faster the flow, the more reliable and efficient the pump will be.
Likewise, a high compression ratio is important as it aids proper feed control. It is good to have your
requirements spelt out clearly when you are selecting these metering pumps.
It would be wise to check out the reviews of the various electronic metering pumps including fluid metering pumps before you make your purchase. That way, you can
increase the probability of making a sound purchasing decision and one that will see you through for many years
into the future, especially since this is a large purchase.
