Mechanism & Principle The Answer Lies in Its Two Opposite Diaphragms The two diaphragms act in concert together to gently and reliably transfer liquids as if they are softly caressing them with both hands. This at once solves various problems and improves productivity. Motor Pump head A proprietary mechanism comprising two pump chambers opposite each other simplifies the structure of the pump head. Liquid is transferred at a consistently steady flow rate by the front and rear pump heads repeatedly and alternately discharging liquid. What's more, this highly efficient pump head structure has been...

Compatible Liquids High-viscosity liquids Up till now, the transfer of high-viscosity liquids has been generally regarded as difficult. However, thanks to a special pump head structure designed to minimize resistance and contamination, Smoothflow pump can transfer high-viscosity liquids such as polymer coagulants without any problem. Examples ・ Resin raw materials ・ Liquid polymer coagulants Polymer coagulants (non-Newtonian liquid): APL-10 Silicon oil (Newtonian liquid): APL-10 Mayonnaise (non-Newtonian liquid): APLS-10 Slurry liquids fully as Smoothflow pump neither has liquid-end parts - are...

Performance curves Discharge volume (L/min) Discharge volume (L/min) The example performance curves were obtained by measuring on test equipment at TACMINA under the following conditions. erties of the transferred liquid, operating conditions Performance may differ slightly depending on the propand product differences. Measure the discharge volume under actual operating conditions, and set the frequency according to the per- formance curve that is obtained. ● Conditions : Clean water, room temperature

Recommended Piping Arrangements We hope that the following example is useful in sufficiently demonstrating the performance (metering characteristics, discharge accuracy, etc.) of metering transfer pumps and in preventing pump accidents or trouble. Relief valve Back pressure valve For adjusting the relief valve pressure Pressure gage Flexible joint Valve Y-shaped strainer ● Locate the tank at a position higher than the pump. ● Make the suction-side piping as large and simple as possible and use pressure booster piping. Use a charge tank or suction damper when only the suction side is to be extended...

Auxiliary Devices & Options Relief valve Back pressure valve ● This relief valve automatically releases excess pressure that builds up in the discharge-side piping of the pump to prevent unexpected accidents. *2 ● This valve prevents overfeeding*1 and siphoning phenomena. ● Provide the back pressure valve near the injection point on the discharge-side piping. * Install the relief valve near the pump on the discharge-side piping. * Note that the relief valve will no longer be able to operate correctly if dirt builds up on the seal section. *1 Phenomenon where the momentum (inertia) of the push...
