Metering pumps are used to accurately displace a pre-determined volume of liquid within a specific time frame. You might use a metering pump for adding a chemical to a process, for example. It’s logical that most positive displacement pumps, rotary and reciprocating types, are used for metering because these pumps are designed to deliver a fixed volume of liquid per revolution or stroke of the pumping element(s).
When selecting a pump for a metering application, what do you take into consideration? Read on to find out what considerations Viking Pump recommends when sizing and selecting a pump for your metering process.
Metering is quite precise, so it's important to consider the right factors when sizing and selecting a pump for a metering application. Never go it alone, however. Contact your local pump distributor to receive an appropriate metering pump recommendation as some pumps are specifically designed for high-accuracy metering applications.
