If you are looking for a reliable system for precise dosing and pumping of small quantities of fluids, a small positive displacement pump is the ideal solution. Discover how it works, its components, when to use it, and the advantages it offers with Fluid-o-Tech!
On this page, we'll cover:
A small positive displacement pump is a mechanical device used for transferring small quantities of fluids with precision and control.
It is designed to pump a fixed volume of fluid for each pumping cycle, ensuring a constant and accurate flow.
The main components of a small positive displacement pump include:
• Pump body - the main component that houses the pumping chamber. It is usually made of stainless steel and durable plastic materials, ensuring a solid and long-lasting construction
• Transfer mechanism - volumetric pumps use graphite vanes to generate the necessary movement for fluid transfer. These mechanisms are precision-made to ensure smooth and pulseless operation
• Motors - these pumps are powered by electric or pneumatic motors that provide the necessary energy for the movement of the transfer mechanism
• Seals and gaskets - to prevent fluid leakage, small positive displacement pumps are equipped with seals and gaskets, ensuring effective sealing and proper pump functionality
To function at its best, a small positive displacement pump follows the principle of volumetric fluid transfer. Here's how it works:
• The pumping chamber fills with fluid during the suction phase, achieved by a precise transfer mechanism using graphite vanes
• During the pumping phase, the transfer mechanism pushes the fluid from the pumping chamber to the pump outlet
• The amount of fluid transferred per pumping cycle is pre-defined and constant, ensuring precise and uniform dosing.
Small positive displacement pumps are suitable for any application where precise transfer of small quantities of fluids at high pressures is required.
They find applications in various sectors, including:
• Beverage industry - for carbonated water dispensing systems
• Domestic and high-performance professional coffee machines
• Water treatment equipment through osmosis
• Industrial cooling systems - lasers, medical devices, welding systems
A small positive displacement pump offers several significant advantages, including:
• Precision and control, as it can provide accurate dosing and uniform distribution of fluids
• Versatility, as this type of pump adapts to a wide range of fluids and applications, offering operational flexibility
• Efficiency, as it helps limit fluid waste through controlled fluid transfer
• Reduced maintenance, as these small pumps are built with durable materials and require minimal maintenance
• Durability, thanks to the robust structure, a small positive displacement pump can offer a long operational lifespan
• Compact size, as these pumps occupy little space, making them ideal for applications in confined spaces
