Smart Pump is an easy to use and programmable system which increases the accuracy of your resin addition in continuous mixers. The Smart Pump system scans and updates the actual amount of material going into your mixer five times per second. The controller adjusts the pump speed to add the exact amount of material needed for the process. The material amounts, ratios, orders of addition and injection time can all be adjusted batch to batch automatically. Smart Pump can be used in any application where precise liquid addition is needed. The Smart Pump system provides the optimum level of consistency and efficiency for your specific process.
Smart Pump addition systems insure precise control over liquid metering processes by compensating for viscosity change, line/nozzle restrictions and pump wear. Single or multiple liquid streams can be ratioed against each other or against a solid flow.
A Smart Pump system consists of a digital PID controller, a flowmeter, a solid state motor controller w/motor and a positive displacement pump for each liquid being metered. The hardware items, along with all necessary valving and piping, are assembled and completely wired in a NEMA 12 enclosure.
The system comes with complete documentation of all electrical and mechanical connections and components. Additionally, the manufacturer's product manuals for all hardware are included in the documentation.
Finally, customized operator manuals are developed for each Smart Pump system with step by step instructions and troubleshooting guides for your specific unit.
Smart Pump's design criteria is based upon your process parameters. Flow rates, head pressures, material/chemical compatibility and chemical storage (bulk or day tanks) are all taken into consideration when designing and building your Smart Batch system. This insures many years of trouble free operation and performance.
Installation is a breeze! Just set the unit in place, run piping and hook-up the electrical. Then an MT System representative will assist in start-up and provide training.
Smart Pump systems can be configured for single or multiple chemical metering additions. Standard units are available for 2 or 3 part systems. The Smart Pump unit can be used to meter any pumpable material at temperatures from 40° to 350° F. Examples of materials that the Smart Pump unit would control are: Resins, acids, bases, shear sensitive materials, paints, adhesives, dyes, food additives and fragrances.
