At Fluid Metering, Inc. our valveless, ceramic metering pumps have proven to be reliable, useful pieces of machinery that are effective across a wide range of industries. For applications that need a precise dose, over millions of repeating cycles, without regular need for repair or recalibration, the best choice available are our valveless ceramic metering pumps.
Working with Hydrogen Peroxide
One area where our pumps excel is in metering concentrated hydrogen peroxide. Hydrogen peroxide is used across a variety of applications, including:
- Use during the aseptic packaging process for a variety of foods and products
- Low-temperature sterilization for clean rooms and hospital operating rooms
- Component and instrument sterilization
- Sporicidal activity
- Cosmetic applications including hair and teeth bleaching
- Production of sodium percarbonate and sodium perborate
Unreliable or imprecise metering of hydrogen peroxide can lead to issues. These include failure to properly sterilize, or an overdose of hydrogen peroxide that could cause contamination.
Our pumps utilize a ceramic piston as the only moving part, meaning that it is the only moving part that is in contact with the fluid. We use ceramic because it is chemically inert and dimensionally stable, which ensures that over time it can withstand chemicals, as well as any wear and tear. The pumps use our CeramPump® pumping principle that uses the ceramic piston for both pumping and valving functions, allowing for a compact design that does not require check valves. This in turn reduces the need for maintenance, while allowing for the precision you require without a need for regular recalibration.
Of course, working with hydrogen peroxide is not the only way that our metering pumps can be used. At Fluid Metering, Inc., we provide a variety of pumps, available in a wide range of laboratory, production, process, and OEM instrumentation applications and can help you figure out the right pump for your need. Simple, complex, fixed, or variable, we can help you choose the correct equipment, including hazardous duty pumps.
