Gear pumps and dosing systems
Dyes are used to color the end product and are often dosed as color intensive fluids with relatively low flows.
The use of gear pumps allows for pulsation-free dosing. In combination with a dedicated flow measurement system, dyes can be dosed with accuracies of < 0,3%. Color dosing systems offer the benefit of using the minimal volume of dye which helps to reduce production costs.
Gear pumps are also used for example in the paper industry, for producing detergents, as well as in the pharmaceutical and food industry.
