Production planners in all industrial sectors face the same challenge. And this is: How to dose and fill viscous and filled or solids-laden materials gently? Especially relevant in this context is shear sensitivity. Regardless of whether material filled with glass spheres from the aerospace industry, pieces of fruit and vegetables in food production or semisolids in pharmaceutical production. Gentle handling is essential! Product properties of the materials to be processed must not be changed or damaged. The endless piston principle of ViscoTec’s dosing and filling systems is especially suitable for this applications and perfect dosing and filling results are guaranteed!
Best technology for solids-laden materials:
Because this type of progressive cavity pump conveys the medium in a self-contained chamber volume. The combination of a hardened stainless steel rotor and a soft elastomer stator ensures that even highly filled materials are gently dosed and conveyed. The sealing line between rotor and stator generates minimum shear on the medium. Also at the same time provides a tightness reserve without valve. This means that even abrasive materials with particles of high grain hardness can be dosed volumetrically exactly onto a component without increased wear.
The variable systems can be individually adapted to the needs of the customers. Furthermore the systems ensure shear-sensitive handling from the material withdrawal out of the delivery containers up to the final application. This is indispensable for precise dosing and filling results. And also for the material specifications themselves and even saves material, waste and costs in quality assurance.
