Metering pumps have a wide array of uses, and plenty of industries rely on them. From medical to industrial, the constant, precise flow provided by metering pumps allows for exact, efficient operations and the ability to ensure consistency over a wide range of products or in a single product over a long period of time. One industry that uses metering pumps extensively is the automotive industry, where the need to use precisely measured and constantly flowing liquids is vital.
The uses of metering pumps in the automotive industry include the following:
- Hydrogen fuel cell research and development for both the humidification and fuel injector systems.
- Encapsulating coating materials in the manufacture of stator, armatures, and distributors – this can include anti-corrosives, lubricants, and more.
- Verifying gasoline octane ratings and adding octane to fuels used in vehicles, as well as adding anti-corrosives, colorants, and other additives to the fuels that automobiles use every day.
- Automotive paint spraying, providing even flow and measured amounts for consistent application. These pumps provide a flow that prevents any dead spots in the paint job or any heavy spots. By having the smallest of tolerances, this makes for reproducible quality across every vehicle, so the automotive line shows consistency and quality.
- Usage in the machining area, as parts of machine tools, in chiller applications, filtration of water, and the washing of parts. The precision of a metering pump ensures efficient fluid output in all of these areas, optimizing fluid usage.
- Surface cleaning, where the ability to run a range of temperatures through the pumps and the durability of the parts can allow the precise use of hot or cold cleaning solutions, as well as a range of chemicals.
- Dispensing insulating materials evenly throughout an automobile, including sound-insulation, noise-dampening, and temperature insulation. This can help to insure that sound reduction is at a maximum, or that the proper components are protected by the proper amount of insulation.
