How SMART Is Your Dosing Pump?
From water treatment to industrial processing, today’s applications are increasingly complex. At the same time, the pressure is on to be more and more productive with less.
C&B’s commitment to Uptime Solutioneering™ means finding, testing and bringing you intelligent solutions and new technology to help you meet those challenges. One such solution we’re proud to offer is the line of Grundfos SMART Digital dosing pumps. These intelligent dosing pumps with high technology drive and adjustment mechanisms meet the challenges of complex dosing.
Here’s how SMARTer dosing pumps can reduce costs, prevent process breakdowns and unscheduled downtime, and make your job easier. That’s what Uptime Solutioneering™ is all about.
Advantages of SMART Digital Dosing
Saves Time and Maintenance Costs
Grundfos SMART Digital pumps have very long service and maintenance intervals, lowering pump life-cycle cost and delivering reliable and disruption-free dosing. The full-PTFE diaphragm offers universal chemical resistance. Wear-and-tear parts that have been in contact with the pumped media only have to be replaced after 8000 operating hours or two years at the latest. Shorter intervals may be required for highly abrasive media.
When service IS needed, the pump’s click-stop mounting plate and service kits make the process faster, easier and more efficient. No additional installation parts are needed.
Saves Money Through Accurate, Intelligent Dosing
The cost savings start with the chemicals saved through the pumps’ Digital Dosing™ technology, exclusive to Grundfos. An optimized dosing head design and 100% stroke length (even at small flow rates) delivers extremely high dosing accuracy and smooth dosing of degassing liquids.
Intelligent flow management features (available on the DDA model) work in the background to maintain target flow and prevent expensive process breakdowns. These include AutoFlowAdapt and FlowControl.
Makes Life Easier, Not Harder
Some technologies look fancy but only seem to make things more complicated. Not so with Grundfos SMART dosing pumps. The DDA and DDC models offer intuitive navigation via a graphical LC display in more than 25 languages. You can set the required flow directly on the display in ml/h, l/h, or gph. The display indicates pump status by changing the backlight color, so you can see at a distance what’s going on with your pump. The DDA model even offers advanced monitoring and self-analysis features to keep an eye on the system for you.
The range is available in two size categories and three models.
The SMART Digital S size category features dosing flow up to 120 l/h, pressure up to 16 bar, and turn-down ratio up to 1:3000.
The SMART Digital XL size category features dosing flow up to 200 l/h, pressure up to 10 bar, and turn-down ratio up to 1:800.
SMART Digital DDA Pump: high-end solution designed for complex and demanding applications
This SMART digital dosing pump has flow intelligence for maximum process reliability. AutoFlowAdapt automatically adapts measured flow to attain target flow. This ensures that dosing continues with the required flow even when subject to external influences of fluctuating system back-pressure. The FlowControl system prevents unplanned stoppages, even if there are fluctuations in system pressure or other variable process parameters. Integrated flow measurement eliminates the cost and hassle of additional measuring equipment. It provides an accurate diagnosis (in plain text) of the most common causes of faults that occur during dosing with diaphragm pumps.
SMART Digital DDC Pump: optimal price-performance ratio
Suitable for universal use, this SMART dosing pump features intuitive click-wheel operation and a graphical LC display in 25+ languages. All standard modes of operation and inputs/outputs such as analog control or output relay can be integrated into control systems. A SlowMode anti-cavitation function handles highly viscous media. Dual-level tank control and an external stop function help keep tabs on operations.
SMART Digital DDE Pump: a cost-effective Digital Dosing™ solution
This is an entry level Digital Dosing™ model ideal for basic OEM functions. Control options include manual control 0.1-100 %, pulse in % of stroke volume, and analogue control (DDE XL). External stop and an empty tank alarm help prevent problems.
