Seepex Inc. introduces Bravo Chemical Metering Systems. The plug-and-play, pre-engineered chemical feed systems provide users improved process control with reliability, accurate and repeatable flow, and reduced chemical consumption, according to the company. Bravo is an integrated, modular and scalable solution used in a variety of industries for disinfection, pH control, flocculation, corrosion inhibitors, oxygen scavengers and containment elimination.
Bravo incorporates NSF/ANSI 61 certified Seepex progressive cavity (PC) Intelligent Metering Pumps for chemical metering capabilities. The design of a PC pump reportedly offers several advantages over traditional chemical metering pumps due to pumping characteristics that allow for consistent, precise, repeatable metering with low shear, minimal pulsations and no vapor lock. Pulsation dampeners can be eliminated and there is no need to over or underfeed chemical to compensate for unplanned variances in analytics. Slip is minimized even when fluid temperature, viscosity or discharge pressure fluctuates. The pumps also wear predictably, so there is no risk for catastrophic failure, according to Seepex.
