Almost every day you encounter products whose production process involves liquid dosing: when you eat sweets or a piece of chocolate, when you do the laundry or put on some nice perfume. There are countless other examples…
Not only is liquid dosing used in the food industry to add fragrances and flavorings, it’s also used to add dyes to detergent and other household products. Another industry where dosing plays an important role is the petrochemical industry, where it’s used to dose additives (like catalysts).
When do you need flow meters to dose additives, fragrances and flavorings? When do you need a dosing pump? And how does that work?
We have listed the top 10 questions about liquid dosing in this blog.
At Bronkhorst, Peter Derkzen and Gerhard Bauhuis are responsible for developing dosing solutions for all sorts of processes where additives must be dosed. They receive all kinds of questions related to dosing of additives. We sat down with them to find out the top 10 questions about liquid dosing.
Dosing pumps move a known volume per unit of time, without measuring the flow that goes into the process.
If you dose additives using a dosing pump – without a flow meter – the value can deviate by up to 50% from the desired quantity of liquid that you want to dose. This could be due to wear and tear, air pockets, or fluctuations in pressure and temperature.

It’s important that you purge your process well. A small air or gas bubble can distort the dosing process and measurement values for your process. We have a great deal of experience with these kinds of processes, and can give you advice on how to tackle this issue. We’ve also produced an ebook which you can download for free. The ebook explains in detail how to handle low liquid flows, with a focus on liquid flows under 100 g/h.
Yes, absolutely. By connecting the flow meter to a dosing pump, you can measure exactly what the pump is doing. Flow instruments can often be used to control the pump for greater precision. This is a significant added value offered by our flow instruments. Bronkhorst can help with advice and on-site system installation. Find out more about the possibilities we can offer you.
Pump control can be used in pilot plants to control liquid flows. Accuracy, fast & efficient data of liquid flows is key to your success. Read more!
