Dosing of liquids
Liquids can be dosed by batch or inline. For the former, the liquid is dosed into the (tank) batch for mixing with other components. Measuring liquid amount can be done by volume using a pump, by various types of flowmeters (mechanical, magnetic, mass flow etc.), by weighing the component manually or in a weighing tank, where the components can be mixed together. Powders can be mixed into the liquid as an option. High-tech state-of-the-art mixers, especially designed for the task, are used to create a homogenous product.
Inline dosing is a process in which liquids are dosed and mixed continuously inside pipes or a tank in the process plant. Inline dosing is an excellent solution for continuous processes, where the demands of accuracy are less important.
The different liquids can be measured either by various types of flowmeters (mechanical, magnetic, mass flow etc.), or by volumetric dosing. Liquids can be mixed in a static mixer to which some solids can be added.
All FlowTech dosing plants are custom-build in close cooperation with the customer, based on FlowTech’s unique experience of a wide range of plants and the customer’s own experience of the process involved. All materials, electric and mechanical equipment used are first class, carefully selected by us based on experience. Individually selected mixing equipment will create homogenous blends.
The setup is designed for years of uninterrupted service in harsh industrial environments. Plants can be delivered preinstalled on skids, including with their control systems tested on the customer’s product in our workshops, to minimise final adjustment on-site. The process is fully automated, including logging documentation. Full running-in on site is included. A package of spare parts and service can be offered as an option. Capacities can be from milligrams to tonnes. Plants can be constructed according to the ATEX Directive.
