Compact gear pumps meet the needs of machine builders

Compact, lightweight and high-performance, Micropump gear pumps are being used for a variety of applications in machinery.

Compact gear pumps meet the needs of machine builders

Micropump gear pumps, which are available through Michael Smith Engineers, meet the challenge of providing high-performance pumping, outstanding reliability and functionality, yet need minimal space. Machine builders and OEM designers will appreciate these compact, lightweight, magnet drive pumps and the smooth, pulseless flows they deliver.

Two recent examples of the application of these pumps are outlined below.

Formaldehyde dosing

A system builder uses the Micropump Integral Series within a piece of equipment used in pet food manufacturing for adding a formaldehyde as part of the process of eliminating bacteria.

Vitamin coatings

A producer of breakfast cereals has incorporated the Micropump IS pump/drive unit in its production line to spray vitamin coatings onto breakfast cereals.

The Micropump range includes a wide range of options, the latest of which is the I-Drive unit. This delivers flows up to 5litres/min at maximum differential pressures of up to 5.6bar and the speed can be automatically varied in proportion to a 0-5V DC input signal or a 4-20mA current loop. Manually controlled drive options are also available.
