A UK-based cider maker has selected hygienic progressive cavity dosing pumps from Seepex to boost the accuracy and reliability of ingredient dispensing.

The company previously used diaphragm pumps for dosing sugar, acidity regulators and other ingredients. These had several disadvantages, including no closed-loop feedback, difficult calibration, and high spares costs with components such as ball valves prone to failure.

Seepex’s progressive cavity pumps were introduced to replace the diaphragm pumps.

A fixed volume is dosed for each revolution of the rotor through the stator.

The pumps produce a pulse-free flow, enabling easy calibration.

Key benefits of product application

• Accuracy of pumps is ±0.5 per cent; linear accuracy is directly proportional to the speed of the pump

• Closed-loop feedback system adjusts the flow rate using information from in-line flowmeters to change the pump speed

• Customer says Seepex pumps have improved accuracy and reliability, and reduced maintenance costs and downtime
