Ceramic pumps for fluid dosing, manufactured in advanced technical ceramics (Alumina 99.7), is a device used to measure and control the precise amount of fluids that are dispensed in various industrial or scientific processes.
Dosing is a process that is widely applied from liquid to creamy products to achieve the exact amount. This totally mechanical procedure is used for the manufacture of various products, such as pharmaceuticals, cosmetics, food and chemicals. The process involves the use of a piston that exerts a high pressure to push the product through a small valve.
Advantages of technical ceramics
- Corrosion resistance: Advanced ceramics are highly resistant to chemical corrosion, making them suitable for handling corrosive or aggressive fluids without suffering damage or contaminating the dispensed fluids.
- High precision: Advanced ceramics allow the manufacturing of dispensers with tight tolerances and excellent precision in fluid dosing. This is especially important in applications where an exact amount of fluid is required.
- High abrasion resistance: Advanced ceramic dispensers are capable of withstanding wear caused by solid particles present in some fluids. This ensures a longer lifespan and reliable long-term performance.
- Wide temperature range: Advanced ceramics can withstand high temperatures without deforming or losing their physical and chemical properties. Therefore, advanced ceramic dispensers are ideal for applications involving high-temperature fluids.
- Low friction: The surface of advanced ceramics is very smooth, reducing friction between the fluid and the parts of the dispenser. This facilitates fluid flow and prevents residue buildup, resulting in more efficient operation and lower maintenance.
In summary, fluid dispensers made of advanced ceramics offer corrosion resistance, high precision, abrasion resistance, the ability to withstand extreme temperatures, low friction, and durability. These advantages make them widely used in various industries where precise and reliable fluid dosing is required.
