PRISMA Dosing Pump

The PRISMA dosing pumps: the incomparable accuracy of the stepper motor – EMEC.

EMEC is proud to introduce the new stepper motor-driven dosing pump- PRISMA, the best solution for high-accuracy metering and extreme reliability.

Thanks to the new stepper motor and to the Multi-Function software, the PRISMA dosing pump offers complete control over dosing speeds. Working modes as well as great flexibility and repeatability, meeting even particularly complex application needs.

The PRISMA is also equipped with Level control, Alarms and Stand-by, while available working modes include Constant, Constant with external input, ppm, %, mlq, Pause-work, Weekly, mA, Pulse, Volt, external Batch and manual Batch.

The PRISMA dosing pumps feature the encoder control knob for quick browsing through the configuration menus. A large display screen allows for easy control and to regulate the working parameters. By changing background colors the PRISMA back-light display is capable of signaling different working status: pump running (green); stand-by (white); warning condition (yellow); alarm condition (red).

TURNDOWN

The PRISMA stepper motor-driven pumps give you the most accurate control over the stroke speed, providing an outstanding turn-down ratio of up to 4800:1.

It means that the PRISMA, through its digital multi-function control, can split up the dosing process into a maximum of 4800 steps. This is in order to offer the most homogeneous and precise distribution of the product to dose according to the required application.

SLOW MODE

The extreme versatility of the PRISMA dosing pump is also due to Slow Mode function. With Slow Mode enabled you can reduce the suction speed to 75, 50 or 25% of the normal speed, making easier, more reliable and extremely accurate the priming and the dosing, even when you have to handle particularly viscous liquids.

CAPACITY RANGE

The PRISMA stepper motor-driven pumps are available with dosing capacity of 5, 13, 28 and 80 l/h at a working pressure of 20, 10, 5 and 2 bar, respectively.

Germ Africa

The company traces its roots back to Germ Oils of the UK, and commenced business in South Africa in 1905. The company was incorporated in South Africa as a public company in 1938, with the parent company, Germ Oils of the UK, as its major shareholder. In the late 1960’s the company in South Africa was sold to the local management following a take-over of the parent company in the UK.

Today, Germ Africa (Pty) Ltd manufactures and trades in sectors mainly incorporating

  • Filtration
  • Metering/Dosing Pumps
  • Ion Exchange Resins
  • Industrial Lubricants

High Flow Series Filter Cartridges

Large Geometry Pleated Filters for High Flow

Graver High Flow Series filters feature a larger geometry to handle higher flows with fewer filter elements. The result is much faster, easier filter changeouts. In addition, the inside to outside flow allows for excellent dirt holding capacity, extending the time between filter changeouts.

Filter housings are also available and because of the filters high flow and dirt holding capacity, smaller systems are possible, reducing upfront capital costs.

High Flow Series Features – Benefits

  • 6” diameter, large geometry for high flows
  • Absolute retention ratings from 1 to 100 microns
  • Capable of flow rates up to 500 GPM in a single 60” element
  • FDA listed materials of construction
  • Inside-out flow retains contaminant even during change-out
  • Multi layer pleated construction with optimized surface area
  • Outer cage prevents media extrusion problem experienced with some competitive offerings
  • Unique Quad Seal gasket provides maximum seal integrity
  • Retrofits competitive high flow filter housings
  • Thermally bonded construction
