The launch of a new metering system

| By Chemical Engineering



Launched last month at Weftec (Chicago; October 2–4), the new Bravo chemical metering system provides improved process control with reliable, accurate and repeatable flow, and reduced chemical consumption, says 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 progressive-cavity (PC) metering pumps. The unique design of a PC pump offers several advantages compared to traditional chemical-metering pumps due to pumping characteristics that allow for consistent, precise, repeatable metering with low shear, minimal pulsations and no vapor lock. These pumps also wear predictably, so there is no risk for catastrophic failure. — Seepex Inc., Enon, Ohio
