Dosing pumps for the next generation
Sometimes you don't know what's missing in your production line until it is invented. The smartphone has revolutionised everything. Including pumping. Here we look at the latest technology used with peristaltic case drive pumps.
The question was how to combine precision dosing and dispensing accuracy with high discharge pressures and provide a pump that is fit for the internet of things - with an intuitive touch screen user interface and a USB data backup port.
The answer came from Verderflex in the form of the Vantage 5000 family.
The Verderflex Vantage 5000 family are an advanced next generation, Wi-Fi enabled, peristaltic cased drive tube pump system for precision dosing and dispensing accuracy. The family has five members, each with touch screen technology and an intuitive operating system as well as a USB data backup port.
The Vantage 5000 peristaltic pump can provide flow rates up to 6,600 ml/min and 7 bar maximum pressure. High flow per revolution enhances tube life, which means reduced cost in manufacture. The stackable, robust design allows two pumps to be mounted together for double dosing.
Max. flow rate 6600 ml/min
Max. (discharge) pressure 7 bar
Turn down ratio 4096:1
The Verderflex Vantage 5000 has a very high turn down ratio of 4096:1 for precise dosing control. This means optimised chemical usage and lower water treatment and processing costs. With precision dosing at high discharge pressures (7 bar), this system solves many pumping problems. With its gentle and low shear peristaltic pumping action, it is ideal for pumping fragile biotech cultures and particle size sensitive water industry flocculants.
As a self priming pump, it readily pumps off-gassing liquids like Hypochlorites, eliminating vapour locking dosing failures without additional degassing valves and other ancillary equipment. As with all peristaltic pumps, only the tubing is in contact with the pumped fluid, making the Verderflex Vantage 5000 ideal for metering corrosive reagents or particle heavy slurries such as lime.
The Verderflex Vantage 5000 employs new technology featuring Analogue Remote Control action, Real-time event clock for timed operations, options with SCADA versions with optical isolation and Digital Control Protocols like RS 485, IEEE 802.11 Wi-Fi, Profibus and Modbus. This means the smart system is compatible with almost all high-tech pumping applications in various industries like water treatment, food, pharmaceuticals, breweries, and chemical dosing with highly reliable and efficient performance.
The Vantage 5000 employs a precision stepper motor for dosing at a 4,096:1 speed control ratio, and dosing can be programmed for up to 30 separate projects. This is done with its easy-to-use touchscreen interface and wide range of remote control inputs such as 4-20mA and PROFIbus.
The Vantage 5000 excels in liquid handling applications including water treatment, pharmaceutical, food and beverage, and chemical dosing.
The pump also performs particularly well in heavy-duty applications such as abrasive slurry, high solid content and high suction lift requirements found in industrial, sewage and mining applications.
Remote control signal options include include 0-10V, 4 to 20mA & tachometer inputs & outputs with optional opto isolation and multiple volt free inputs & outputs.
