Metering Systems Industry Information

Metering Systems

Metering systems include all apparatus implicated in the precision transfer of carefully measured fluids through positive displacement. Systems such as these are responsible for maintaining process streams of variable chemical composition and monitoring liquid flows, including oil, water, coolant, fuel, syrup, slurries, acids, bases, and corrosives. Metering pumps are at the core of these systems as they enable manufacturers to cyclically introduce a consistent amount of fluid into a continuous-flow stream to ensure homogeneity.

Metering System Applications

Industries such as chemical processing, pharmaceutical, food and beverage processing, water treatment, medical, commercial vending, irrigation, petroleum, milling, sewage, plastic fabrication, metalworking, automotive, and analytics commonly utilize large and small metering pumps in daily operations. These systems rely on adjusting flow rates as needed throughout processing. This can be done either by altering stroke length or changing the frequency of pump cycles. Pumps employing the latter model would be fixed displacement variable speed metering systems, while the former is known as a variable displacement constant speed system. Adjusting cycle frequency is often easier and therefore, more popular in industrial and commercial settings though both types of metering allow for a continuous flow of metered fluid into an expulsion unit, be it a dialysis machine or beverage dispensing unit. Further considerations for metering systems include highly variable material construct, maximum flow, maximum pressure discharge, inlet size, exhaust size, media, operating temperature, and power source.

Types of Metering Systems

There are four common types of metering systems. Diaphragm metering pumps use a vibrating membrane to move fluids from one point to another, while bellows pumps employ pleated or accordion style welded rings to compress and decompress fluids. Piston metering pumps use a cylindrical rod to increase or decrease pressure in order to engage fluids and effectively expel them in precise amounts and at accurate flow rates. Peristaltic pumps are the most variable as they use rollers that run along tubes in order to meter liquid. Despite the differences, most units within a metering system have similar features. A pump head, or cylindrical cavity, is the central component that houses the actuating device and an inlet and outlet check valve through which liquids flow. Additional components may include a fluid reservoir and tubing or hoses that carry the fluid from one point to another as directed by the pump. With all the proper parts aligned, each metering system operates in a two part process. The first action is suction or the intake stroke. The actuating device, be it a piston, bellows, membrane, or rollers, is withdrawn to increase the pump head's capacity. This creates a vacuum effect which draws fluid in through the inlet valve. At capacity, the valve closes. The actuator is then extended towards the liquid at a specified speed, creating pressure that forces open the outlet valve. The liquid is expelled due to the displacement. This process is repeated as many times as needed and may even run continuously in some systems.

New Adjustable Length Liquid Level Gages

Oil-Rite Corporation has designed nylon liquid level gages with adjustable centerlines to accommodate centerline distances up to 1/4” longer or shorter than the specified measurement, for total adjustability of 1/2”.  This range of adjustability compensates for variances that can occur during the production of plastic tanks.  It is also suited to field installations where the distance between mounting holes may be less precise than in a controlled setting.  The adjustment can be made by hand, facilitating simple installation.   Liquid level gages are used to view liquid levels in...
