A dosing pump is a type of pump that is used to dispense a precise amount of liquid or gas at a specific flow rate. It is commonly used in industrial, chemical, and water treatment applications. Dosing pumps can be used to control the flow of chemicals in water treatment systems, to add precise amounts of additives in manufacturing processes, and to dispense medication in medical settings.
Dosing pumps can be classified into two main types: positive displacement pumps and metering pumps. Positive displacement pumps use a fixed volume chamber to move the fluid, while metering pumps use a piston, diaphragm, or peristaltic mechanism to move the fluid.
There are different types of dosing pumps such as:
Each of these types of dosing pumps has its own advantages and disadvantages, and the best type for a specific application will depend on the fluid being pumped, the flow rate and volume required, and the operating conditions.
