Home Engineering Pumps, Valves, Hydraulics, Pneumatics New metering and dosing pump can handle high flow rates accurately

WATSON-Marlow Fluid Technology Solutions (WMFTS) has launched the Qdos H-FLO chemical metering and dosing pump, designed specifically for higher flow rates up to 600 L/h.

Qdos H-FLO delivers the same outstanding accuracy and reliability as other Qdos pumps but for higher flow rates with a variety of pumpheads and a range of different tube material to ensure chemical compatibility with the process fluid.

The Qdos H-FLO high-precision pump offers flexibility to be scalable with a customer’s process, whether it is in water and wastewater treatment, mining and mineral processing, chemical applications in food and beverage or pulp and paper.

The release of Qdos H-FLO enhances the range of Qdos pumps by offering flow rates up to 600 L/h and pressure capability up to 7 bar (102 psi).

Like the rest of the Qdos range of peristaltic pumps, Qdos H-FLO cuts costs through higher precision chemical metering, with an accuracy of ±1% and repeatability of ±0.5% in dosing.

Qdos H-FLO will bring benefits to applications including disinfectants. Coagulants, flocculants , acids/alkalis, mining reagents and surfactants.

Adeel Hassan, product manager at WMFTS, said: “At Watson-Marlow Fluid Technology Solutions, we believe in engineering innovation to solve complex customer problems by providing simple-to-use solutions.

The high accuracy and repeatability of our pumps helps to achieve cost savings in chemical usage which also assists our customers in their journey towards net-zero targets. While the pump has inherited unique features from the current Qdos range, it also brings several new-to-market features to make chemical dosing simpler, safer and cost-effective.

“Customer feedback has been a fundamental driver in developing Qdos for higher flow rate applications. Qdos H-FLO aims to make chemical dosing simpler and efficient for operations, maintenance and EHS teams. It offers several onboard communication options for SCADA and PLC integration to achieve process optimisation.”
