The HYDRA-CELL MT8 Series from Michael Smith Engineers offers repeatable accuracy at low flow rates and high pressures.

Michael Smith Engineers has announced that it is now offering the HYDRA-CELL MT8 Series, a new range of high-pressure metering pumps.

The company says that the HYDRA-CELL MT8 Series pumps will deliver positive displacement flows with highly repeatable accuracy, designed for metering and dosing applications where precise volumes of liquid are required within a specified time period.

The pumps can handle a variety of processing liquids at low flow rates and high pressures, exceeding API 675 performance standards for steady-state accuracy (±1%), linearity (± 3%) and repeatability (±3%). Electronic flow control increases accuracy and reliability and they are also available with a manual, variable speed gearbox for use in hazardous areas.

Their integral multiple hydraulically actuated diaphragms ensure pulse-free, linear flows across a wide pressure range, without the need for pulsation dampeners. MT8 pumps are also hermitically sealed which effectively separates the power end from the process fluid which helps to eliminate leaks and the associated risks and hazards.

The range covers capacities from 0.23 lit/hr up to 30.2 lit/hr at discharge pressures to 241 bar and is available in a choice of wetted materials including PVC, PVDF, 316 stainless steel and Hastelloy C.
