IRIS IBMP: A Submersible, Precision Metering Pump
The In-Barrel Metering Pump (IBMP) from Iris Engineering is designed for precise metering of liquids and additives in a variety of applications where these fluids must be metered from barrels, drums or tanks to a process.
Combining Precision With Versatility
Compare these features with any conventional metering pump and you'll see why the IBMP is fast becoming the standard in precision metering:
The IBMP features a rotary, positive displacement sealless pump which provides a precise, pulseless flow which is easily controllable and repeatable regardless of discharge pressure. And, because the pump is fully submerged at the bottom of the barrel, it can never leak or lose its prime as it meters the liquid down to the last 1/8 of an inch.
Highest Performance at Low Cost
The IBMP is an economical complete system (control, motor and pump) which eliminates costly setups of holding tanks, transfer pumps, check valves, piping and metering pumps. And, because the IBMP is portable, it easily integrates directly into the process and is easy to set up and operate. Precise construction and only three moving parts ensure long life and low maintenance costs.
Typical Applications for the IBMP
The portable IBMP allows the fluid to be conveniently positioned near the process.
Closed-loop control of independent streams according to ratio set by process recipe.
IBMP provides a controlled pressure to the input of a high pressure metering pump for greater accuracy with pulseless flow (especially well suited for high pressure metering of low viscosity fluids)
PLC or computer acts both as process monitor and controller for the IBMP to maintain process parameters.
Multi-channel controller functions as pre-set totalizer to meter any number of fluids for repeatable batch recipe.
