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 company was previously using a Pulse Batch feature in their production line. The application was for dosing a predetermined amount of “nutrient water” into a glass jar, where the small sprig of a fruit tree, almond tree…would begin the growth/germination for eventual planting in the field.
The benefit of switching to the FLEXFLO® M4 to dose the predetermined amount of “nutrient water” was the significant output volume capability the pump possesses. The M4 peristaltic dosing pump increased the speed of the production line, which enabled a higher yield.
The Mammoth Lakes Water District installed the FLEXFLO® Model M3 Dosing Pumps to assist in treating the town’s water and removing the arsenic.
SUEZ successfully injects a low ALUM concentration at high pressure using the CHEM-FEED® MD3 dual-diaphragm metering pump without the need for tube replacements.
Due to its versatility, low maintenance costs, advanced motor technology, SCADA interface, and reduced power consumption, the FLEXFLO® M3 peristaltic pump has proven to be an excellent choice for the City of Lompoc.
