Comparing Metering Pumps for Abrasiveness and Wear


To process highly viscous and abrasive media that are sensitive to shear with a high-degree of process security, while tolerating changes in the flow properties, a metering pump must be in accordance with the positive displacement principle.

A progressive cavity pump (PCP) is a well-known example and it is able to pump medium with low levels of wear and friction. This results in a long service life and increased energy efficiency.
