Traditionally, dosing- or metering pumps are believed to be accurate because the theory is that a known pump head displacement will move a known volume over a known time giving a known delivered volume. In practice however, it appears to be difficult to achieve a high level of accuracy. Deviations of 10-15% are normal. Why?
Inaccuracies like this are caused by many changing process conditions, such as:
Just by adding a flow meter you will not get the best solutions as you still need a separate PID controller that compares the real flow signal to the desired flow.
By adding our Bronkhorst Coriolis- or Ultrasonic flow meter with integrated PID controller, you do not need to include the pump in the control system, you just give a set point demand to the flow meter and it will drive the pump to the desired flow.
The combination of a Coriolis mass flow meter with pump can be used for various dosing applications such as dosing liquid colourants (dye) to detergent, laundry care products and cleaning products.

To give a piece of candy its own taste, texture and appearance, additives such as colourings, flavourings and acids have to be added to the production process. Ultrasonic volume flow meters in combination with a pump can realise an accurate control of additives.

For accurate control of liquid flows in a continuous pharmaceutical manufacturing application Bronkhorst designed and supplied a complete skid solution that combined a Coriolis mass flow meter with a gear pump, pressure sensor and a number of liquid filters and valves.

Besides these combinations, Bronkhorst can also facilitate customers in more complex solutions, integrating mass flow measurement and control equipment into boxes, modules or cabinets, designed in collaboration with our customers.
A liquid dosing module like this can be used for ratio control, dosing, filling, mixing and blending.
