Viscosity is a measure of a fluid’s internal resistance to flow. As higher viscosity fluids act less like a liquid and more like a solid, they present a pumping challenge.
There are several factors to consider when pumping a high viscosity fluid. Including, but not limited to viscosity characteristics (thixotropic, dilatant, Newtonian), temperature, flow rate, pipe size and length. When choosing a process pump, industrial professionals must keep these considerations in mind to determine the optimal pump technology.
There are several challenges to consider when selecting a pump for higher viscosity fluids:
The Qdos 20 pump range has expanded to include a new PU tubing material that is ideally suited for accurate dosing of aliphatic hydrocarbons making it a perfect fit for long consumable life when dosing oil-based polymers.
Qdos 20 PU pumps are available in the following configurations:
Universal with 24VDC Inputs
Universal+ with 24VDC Inputs
Qdos Pumps with 12/24 VDC Mains Power Input
12-24 VDC power supply is available for all model variants across the Qdos
lineup except for PROFIBUS which still requires the standard ~100-240 VAC

Certa Pumps were designed for CIP (Clean-In-Place) operations, yet their design works so well for difficult transfer applications that many are being used in COP (Cleaning Out of Place) systems. However, using a Certa pump in COP applications can cause problems due to the design.
Graco Inc. recently held a SaniForce 2.0 launch event for distributors. The new SaniForce line features design improvements for diaphragm pumps, Drum Unloaders, and Bin Evacuation Systems. There is are new Air & Electric Driven Large Particle "Poultry" Pumps, an induction plate for Unloaders and more sizes of diaphragm pumps.
