Ecodos diaphragm metering pump: Economical and safe solution for pumping fluid in the low-pressure range

In many industries, metering tasks take place in the low-pressure range of < 20 bar. Using a high-pressure pump for this purpose is usually not economical. At this year's Hannover Messe, Lewa GmbH is presenting a cutaway model of the Ecodos diaphragm metering pump, which clearly illustrates the operating principle of the low-pressure pump. The distinguishing feature  is that the Ecodos diaphragm is mechanically driven,rather than hydraulically driven. Lewas pump installation demonstration stand will be another highlight of the trade show. Furthermore, the manufacturer from Leonberg is presenting an Ecosmart diaphragm metering pump with a plexiglass head, the Intellilab micro-metering pump, the odor control unit (OCU) for fully automated monitoring and control of odorizing systems, the Wilden PX8 pressure air pump and a Pomac rotary lobe pump.

The Lewa Ecodos is a robust and efficient diaphragm metering pump with mechanical diaphragm actuation that provides many options. Due to its simple construction, it operates without hydraulic oil and can also be used for sensitive applications in the pharmaceutical field. Fluids that would react with hydraulic oil can be metered just as safely. In principle, it is suitable for virtually all metering and pumping tasks in the low-pressure range. The Ecodos, as a single-drive unit with a space-saving, vertically attached motor, implements a flow rate of 0.4 to 1500 l/h per pump head and a maximum discharge pressure of 20 bar. It's multiplex capability also enables additional areas of application, for which multiple drive units with identical or different output capacities are ideally suited, particularly for low-pulsation pumping, recipe metering and mixing tasks. For areas of application that require an especially high degree of cleanliness, the Ecodos is also available in a sanitary/hygienic design with a pump head made of polypropylene or polished stainless steel. The option of controlling metering in terms of stroke length or speed results in a wide adjustment range up to 1:50. Its 13 output ratings and material options that include 1.4571, PVC, PVDF and PTFE as well as adapted accessories allow the Ecodos to be adjusted precisely to the requirements of the specific metering task in the low-pressure range.

Pump installation demonstration stand

At the Hannover Messe Booth, visitors will be able to see an installation demonstration stand, where various operating states of a diaphragm metering pump can be viewed. This includes the behavior of the pump with low suction pressure and the influence of pulsation dampers and different pipeline designs. Thanks to the plexiglass pump head used, interested parties can witness the pump process of a LEWA diaphragm metering pump and obtain valuable information about correct installation.

The Ecosmart diaphragm metering pump, a classic from Lewa, is also among the exhibits at the trade show. The hydraulically actuated metering pump offers the best price/performance ratio in its class and, thanks to its reliable operation, ensures maximum safety and minimum life cycle costs in the production process. The display items at the trade show booth also include the Intellilab micro-metering pump, which is suitable for high-precision, extremely low-volume metering up to 500 bar, the Odor Control Unit (OCU), the Pomac rotary lobe pump and the Wilden PX8, a pressure air pump for process waste, CIP chemicals and fluids with solids content and shear-sensitive products in hygienic or sterile fields.
