PHD Customized Solutions Case Study

An Advanced Volumetric Pump

Application
Ideal for Filling Viscous Materials Based on Precise Volume

Volumetric pumps fill based on a precise volume regardless of pressure, flow, and time, and are ideal for filling viscous materials like personal hygiene products, detergents, oils, and Plastisol. Because of this, volumetric pumps are typically used by manufacturers in the personal care, condiment, health care, pharmaceuticals, lubricant, and food processing industries.

Challenge
An Easily Adjustable Pump Manufactured from Food Grade Materials

A PHD customer required a volumetric pump that could dispense different amounts of product and be quickly and easily adjusted and disassembled for cleaning. Additionally, the parts of the pump that came into contact with the fluids to be dispensed had to be manufactured from food grade materials.

OUR SOLUTION
A Customized Volumetric Pump that Meets All Requirements

Our Custom Products team developed the Quick Change Volumetric Pump to meet our customer’s requirements. The rod end is equipped with an easy-to-use volume adjustment collar and a lock nut, and the reservoir tank is constructed of clear plastic that allows for visual confirmation of proper actuation. The removable dispensing piston is also stainless: corrosion-resistant and designed for autoclave. These features combined to make the exact solution the customer needed.
