ACHEMA 2018: Hi-Techno metering pumps a combination of precision and flexibility

Highest precision and ease to use as a solution for the dosing of liquid chemicals, this is exactly what distinguishes IWAKI’s IX metering pump series with brushless DC motor and digital controller. The adjustable suction and pressure speed ensures low-pulsation and precise dosing (+/- 1%) over the entire performance range (up to 300 l/h).

At the ACHEMA 2018 (June 11-15, hall 8.0, booth A62), IWAKI will for the first time present the new IX-B series with new innovative features:

Four new sizes are available covering a flow rate range of 0.0075 l/h to 45 l / h. The energy-saving brushless DC motors (BLDC) provide now an extended control range of 1000:1. This motor technology offers the advantage of a higher power output compared to stepper motors which are frequently used in comparable metering pumps and sizes. Also new in this series is a non-elastomeric, extremely durable PTFE diaphragm with outstanding permeation characteristics. The combination selection of PVDF for the pump head material ensures best chemical resistance. Furthermore, the unique high compression pump head design (Pat.) provides excellent degassing capability. To optimize the install and built-in possibilities a manually adjustable control unit (Pat.) has been developed. The user can easily change the position without any extra parts, wall mounting is also possible. The types of connection offer a number of varieties as well: Tubing, flanged or threaded connections for union nut etc., this series offers all common connections. A large LED status bar provides simple visual indication of operating conditions at a glance, from distance as well as in dark places the pump status is always visible. All IX models are featured with different modes of operation like manual, pulse, analog and batch as well as PROFIBUS-DP. The desired settings are managed via a multilingual, user-friendly LCD display. Important operating data, such as flow rate, operating time, number of strokes etc. can be easily checked at any time via the operator menu. For increased safety during operation, all models are equipped with a diaphragm rupture sensor and overpressure sensor as well as a power supply unit for worldwide use (100-240VAC 50/60Hz).
