Simplification Innovations: The Metering Pump Reimagined


A metering pump serves a simple but important role in any water treatment system. While these pumps should be relatively simple to set up and run, they can often be quite complicated. Operators must often pour through a 60- to 120-page manual, then navigate awkward interfaces and decipher prompts just to get started. It can take hours to get ready, and if there is a mistake during setup, it can cause unnecessary delays.

New innovations in pump engineering are changing this. Taking cues from smartphones, these pumps offer a variety of advantages of older models, including:·

  • User-friendly interfaces make the pumps easier to setup and operator, saving time and labor.
  • Upgradability through USB interface, reducing the rate of obsolesce and ensuring a greater return-on-investment.
  • Versatility of speeds, pressure, and communication protocols, reducing time spent specifying the right pump.
  • Numerous apps and automation features designed to save time and reduce maintenance.
