Paddlewheel flow meters can be used to start and stop inexpensive, motor driven fixed feed rate metering pumps without the need for expensive PLCs or other control equipment.
The variable area flow meter is the most cost-effective solution for almost all applications.
The question is posed, which of these pump types will be most effective and reliable, the diaphragm pump or the peristaltic pump? Both are positive displacement pumps but work in very different ways.
Peristaltic metering pumps have been proven to be accurate, dependable, and tough in a multitude of commercial, industrial, and municipal chemical metering applications.
Understanding the variables that result in wear on the pump components, can assist in properly specifying the pump for a specific application.
