SEEPEX from Bottrop is the progressive cavity pump manufacturer to introduce a pump module with MTP that enables simple functional integration in production processes. In co-operation with the department of automation technology of the TH Cologne and WAGO Kontakttechnik, a module type package (MTP) was created, which can be imported into the automation systems of different manufacturers and controls different services, such as "dosing" and "filling", as well provides the HMI component.
Due to this innovative approach, the Seepex pump module "Smart Dosing Pump (SDP)" won the Innovation Award at ACHEMA last year in the pumps category. It combines a progressive cavitiy pump with additional sensors for flow, temperature and pressure as well as integrated control logic for controlling all components. By linking sensors and actuators with local intelligence, field and control levels merge. The result is a procedural module that can easily be integrated into outlying systems via established interfaces and thus independently realizes parts of the process
