Remote control pump

Remote control pump Harmer is a major supplier of toiletries to some of the cosmetics industry’s leading brand names. Its existing diaphragm pump had poor flow rate characteristics and required manual adjustment to cope with differing output requirements. Harmer contacted Thorite with a request for an improved pump, coupled to a system which would enable flow rates to be varied by remote control. Thorite specified an ARO 2in polypropylene "EXP" diaphragm pump. The pump fitted the application perfectly, combining high flow rates with slow cycling operations, which will ultimately result in a considerably extended service life. Thorite then installed a pneumatic Pilot-Operated Regulator system from Norgren, which allowed the pump to be remotely adjusted. This type of control also enables the smallest possible volume of compressed air to be used to achieve the desired flow rate.
