AquFlow Launches IVAX – Intelligent Verification and Control System

AquFlow has always taken pride in being an innovative company. Many of our customers had asked us to build a system that not only controls the flow of the pump automatically, but also verifies the flow of the chemical.

Metering pumps by nature are very accurate pumps and they are used for applications where the chemical need to be added in a very precise quantity. Many metering pumps are calibrated to deliver set flow rates. After the pump has been set there are several scenarios where the chemical flow could be disrupted. For example, when the reservoir has run out of chemical or when there is an air gap due to degassing or a blockage in the suction line, the pump is turning but the chemical is either not flowing at all or it is flowing at a lower flow rate.

AquFlow’s IVAX not only controls the flow rate of the pump, but it also verifies that the exact amount of chemical is flowing at any given time. It even has the capability to log the flow over a period of time. So when a water treatment facility needs verification that the correct ratio of Chlorine was added, they can easily refer to the log. Or when a process engineer needs dynamic flow control, he can get that along with a record that verifies it.

The IVAX controls the speed and / or stroke length of the pump based on the readings of the flow measurement device. Hence there is no possibility of false reading or assumptions. Everything is positively verified and controlled. The IVAXcan be customized to any given application or it can be bought in a modular configuration to suit most unique applications.

This system can be […]

Top 4 Ways You Can Extend the Life of Any Hydraulic Diaphragm Metering Pump

AquFlow Series 3000

1.) Maintain the quality and quantity of hydraulic oil

In hydraulic diaphragm metering pump the hydraulic oil does several things to ensure proper operation of the pump. First it develops the pressure to displace the diaphragm which in turn moves the chemical. Secondly the oil also lubricates the internals of the pump. Additionally it also keeps the diaphragm from taking any mechanical stress due to pressure imbalance. Hence it is important to make sure that the quantity of the oil is up to the level recommended by the manufacturer. Usually there are markings on the pump itself to show the optimal level of the oil. Then make sure the oil does not have any contamination from external or internal sources. If there is water, chemical or even air (frothing) in the oil it changes the physical and chemical properties of the oil which damages the pump components. If there are any solid particles such as dirt, metal filings or chips these will start wearing on wear parts such as gears and plungers. That wear will cause either leak paths or cause the mating parts to fall out of tolerance affecting the performance and accuracy of the pump.

2.) Prevent any restrictions on the suction line.

These pumps work on hydraulically balanced diaphragm principle. The pressure created by the process fluid is matched by the pressure created by the hydraulics of the pump. The hydraulics of the pump generates enough pressure to overcome and push the process liquid out. If during the operation of the pump the suction is restricted and the process side of the pump either does not fill up quickly, there is a pressure imbalance which slams the diaphragm against the contour plate (lower […]
