UK Flowtechnik releases new external gear dosing pumps
UK Flowtechnik, a solution provider for fluid transfer technology, has introduced the ECO.pump, a new Beinlich range of external gear dosing pumps.
The manufacturer says the pumps offer an economically advantageous option for liquid dosing applications and are well suited for handling viscous fluids without fillers.
The ECO.pump is suitable for many industry areas and its simple design allows for higher reliability in service and easier disassembly and reassembly for maintenance.
The new design of gearing has the advantage of low-pulsation dosing, which coupled with direct entry onto the gear, ensures volumetric efficiency from the start.
The new pumps are well suited for applications in dosing, process techniques and process engineering.
Within dosing they may be used for resins or polyurethanes, e.g. for gluing or joining body parts in the automotive industry, or silicones, glues and sealing paints, for applications such as protecting printed circuit boards with electronic components for the automotive industry and in mobile communications.
UK Flowtechnik also lists other applications involving dosing of media without fillers, such as isocyanates, adhesives, silicones, polyols, hotmelts, paints and oils.
The pumps offer displacements from 0.1cc per revolution up to 6.0cc, operating within a temperature range of -30C up to +150C.
All of the components are manufactured from a high-grade stainless steel, including the gears themselves, and the standard shaft seal is Viton with the option of PTFE.
Beinlich are also currently developing the pump in hardened tool steel, so pump life can be prolonged when dispensing filled liquids.
‘This new range of pumps offers a very economic choice for less demanding fluid dosing applications, and the simple design ensures reliability and ease of maintenance. We have had a very positive initial interest for those applications where cost is important and such an entry level pump is ideal,’ says UK Flowtechnik’s technical sales engineer James Lees.
