The ProMinent group of companies has been manufacturing components and systems for metering liquids and delivering reliable water treatment solutions for over 55 years. Its extensive range notably includes metering pumps, peristaltic pumps, measuring and control technology, sensors for water parameters, water treatment products such as metering systems for polymers and end-to-end metering systems along with accessories such as chemical storage containers and transfer pumps. ProMinent also supplies process metering pumps and equipment for process and plant engineering in the oil, gas and energy sectors from its own production facilities. The group is now at HANNOVER MESSE 2019 to debut its new DULCO flex Control pump, a peristaltic pump for metering highly gaseous, high-viscosity, abrasive or shear-sensitive media.
DULCO flex Control is a valuable addition to the ProMinent portfolio, offering a smart peristaltic pump designed to ensure linear and reproducible metering in all process conditions. According to its makers, it combines the best of both worlds - valveless metering and the precision of a diaphragm metering pump - while fully harnessing the features of a peristaltic pump. The metering head, developed and patented by ProMinent, ensures users can change hoses quickly and easily thanks to a unique changeover concept that does not require tools. An integrated display provides detailed instructions to guide users step by step through the process of changing a hose. The high-performance hose is made of the thermoplastic elastomer Santoprene and ensures outstanding chemical resistance and a long service life. DULCO flex Control is operated via an intuitive user interface with a click wheel. The ingenious control system promises precise metering and a reduced flow rate in continuous operation up to 10 milliliters an hour. DULCO flex Control can also be fully networked, which makes it IoT-compatible. What’s more, when connected to the DULCOnneX platform, which has been specially developed by ProMinent, DULCO flex Control gets even smarter.
