Many industrial and commercial processes require the use of dosing pumps to transfer fluids with precise accuracy and consistency. Some processes where dosing pumps deliver a consistent, metered amount of fluids or chemicals include water treatment applications such as groundwater, recreational water, and process water for recycling and reuse. Common water treatment applications requiring dosing pumps include:
- Water treatment plants for drinking water require precise dosing of chemicals for various processes such as coagulation, flocculation, sedimentation, filtration, and disinfection
- Wastewater treatment generated during industrial processes must be treated for reuse or disposal
- Boiler water treatment must remove suspended solids and soften water to remove calcium and metal cations
- Cooling towers in industrial processes require water treatment to prevent bacteria and microbial growth, oxidation, and corrosion
Dosing pumps ensure that chemicals are dosed accurately for proper disinfection with chemical dosing of biocides, cleaners, and anti-foamers. Other dosing pump processes include pH adjustment, ultra-filtration, and reverse osmosis. Dependable dosing metering pumps are required, especially when transferring hazardous chemicals. World-leading pump supplier, Grundfos, offers SMART Digital dosing pump solutions that improve efficiency and safety with minimal service and maintenance.
Grundfos SMART Digital Dosing Pumps: DDA, DDC, DDE
Grundfos SMART Digital dosing pumps provide solutions to a broad range of applications with industry-leading flexibility, user-friendly operation, and solutions for off-gassing problems. SMART Digital dosing intelligent technology features self-analysis with advanced monitoring on your entire pump process system. SMART Digital dosing pumps include compact installation mounted vertically or horizontally in three model variances for endless possibilities.
The high-end DDA pump is the optimal choice for applications that are complex and demanding. It handles degassing liquids without difficulty, even during pump standby, due to its auto-deaeration feature. The FC control type provides FlowControl with selected fault diagnostics and built-in pressure monitoring. The FCM control variant provides integrated flow measurement and the AutoFlowAdapt function, which enables the pump to adapt its speed to real conditions. The pump features batch modes (timer or pulse-based) and is available with an optional E-box for Profibus DP integration.
The DDC dosing pump provides solutions to many common applications. A built-in SlowMode easily doses liquids of high viscosity and offers operation in manual or pulse control modes. Set up and operation is simple, with an easy-to-use interface, a backlit display, and a control variant providing relay settings for warnings and alarms, analog control, and stroke signal.
The DDE provides cost-efficient Digital Dosing with basic functions that meet budget requirements for simple applications. The intuitive user easy interface makes it easy to set dosing capacity from 0.1% to 100%, with P and PR control variants for pulse control, external stop, and warnings with empty tank alarms.
The SMART Digital dosing pump system from Grundfos provides simplicity, modularity, and flexibility with flow intelligence. Intuitive and intelligent handling provides time and cost savings with seamless integration in all workflows. Enjoy a flexible concept with the reliability you can count on in the highest performance and all operating conditions.
