|Capabilities for Application-Specific Pump Design
Iris also designs and builds special pump configurations that
include accessory equipment such as tanks, mixers, flowmeters, heat exchangers, etc. Our
focus is on metering pump systems that center on low
flow, close control requirements.
Examples of Unique Pump Designs
A. Ink Marking Systems: Iris has designed
and built a liquid ink metering system to continuously meter
and apply ink to strip steel which is formed into armored cable. Iris supplies a skid
mounted system which includes agitated vessel, metering pump,
proportional encoder, dispense head and speed control with ratio capability.
B. Two Component Urethane System: Iris has
designed and built a two component system to meter isocyanate and polyol
which is then applied to a rotary mold in the production of urethane rollers. The two
pumps are tied electronically to provide variable but accurate and repeatable flowrates in
C. Single Component Tote Tank Mounted Pump System:
Iris has designed and built a specialized high flow pump to dispense chemicals for
enhanced oil production in the oil fields. This pump system is integrated in a truck
mounted tote tank and utilizes a hydraulic motor as a prime mover. Flow is controlled by a
DCS supervisory control connected to an exit flowmeter. Pump efficiency is verified by a
motor mounted encoder.
