Depending on your application, you may require a pump that can work at high speeds and manage high pressure - and not all pumps function this way. If you require a pump that can manage high speeds and high pressure and select a pump that does not function at that level, you could be facing costly unplanned downtime, lost productivity, and even premature pump failure. Fluid Metering experts can help with selecting a pump that meets your speed and pressure needs.

In order for a pump to perform for a long period of time, it needs to maintain a high level of accuracy. If a pump's accuracy and repeatability changes over time, it will decrease the overall performance of the pump, and can possibly even render the pump useless. How can a user maintain accuracy and ensure that pumps remain reliable and repeatable over time? Here's a closer look at what you need to know:

How to Solve for Crystallization in a Pump

May 3, 2022 1:03:19 AM / by Patrick DeRuvo posted in Metering Pumps

0 Comments

Under certain conditions, a liquid solution will begin to crystallize, or form solid crystals. This typically occurs under the right combination of environmental conditions and other factors, such as vibration. Users are running into crystallizing fluids more frequently in the lab environment, which makes it difficult to process via conventional equipment. That is why it’s important to have a pump that can handle these crystallizing fluids.

Many pump users have a need for continuous, pulse-free flow. Unfortunately, this isn't always the case when working with many pumps. Today's reciprocating pumps tend to put out a pulsating flow that isn't always ideal. But how do you go about facilitating that more stable and consistent flow when you're working with a pump? That's where Fluid Metering, Inc.'s FSF Smooth Flow Technology provides a solution. Offering a pulse-less flow, the technology has many benefits for end users.

Guidelines for Pumping High Viscosity Fluids

Sep 29, 2021 6:56:59 PM / by Patrick DeRuvo posted in Metering Pumps

0 Comments

Fluids with low viscosity tend to have low resistance. They shear easily and their molecules flow quickly, which can make them easy to pump and process.

High viscosity fluids, on the other hand, are the opposite. They move slowly and don't deform easily. Some even tend to behave more like solids than liquids, which can become a problem for pumping.

Different fluids with different flow rates are bound to require separate pumps, right?

Not necessarily. Two pumps aren't necessarily always better than one.

How to Select the Right Pump for Flow Rate

Jun 30, 2021 1:00:00 PM / by Patrick DeRuvo posted in Metering Pumps

0 Comments

When referring to flow rate in a pump, you are looking to find the volume of liquid that travels through the pump in a certain amount of time, often measured in milliliters per minute. Different applications will require different flow rates — and it's crucial to select a pump that can meet your specific needs. In this post, we'll take a closer look at how to select the right pump for flow rate, what to look for, mistakes to avoid, and more.
