The new model is designed for a flow rate of up to 2000 l/h. The maximum permissible operating pressure is 50 bar or 600 lbs. The use of similar components within the Ecosmart range keeps production costs and the final price down. At the same time, a high level of safety is guaranteed by focusing on essential design features such as the pressure relief valve or the proven sandwich diaphragm with diaphragm monitoring.
Lewa engineers implemented their equal parts strategy for this new model. The intelligent modular principle means many wear parts can be used across pump types. This considerably simplifies the spare parts inventory. At the same time, the modular principle also allows individual adjustments to the respective application. For example, stroke frequencies or plunger diameters can be selected individually. The basis for this is the M900 pump head, which is already used in the LCA and LCC variants, as well as in the Ecoflow program.
The Ecosmart pump can be aligned either vertically or horizontally, making it easier to integrate the unit into systems with a very small footprint. Additionally, the pump head of the new LCD variant is aligned at right angles to the plunger axis, resulting in a particularly compact format. In many pumps, the pump head is on the same axis as the plunger, which often results in bulky pump dimensions. The 90° orientation of the new models avoids this. This advantage is achieved by the extremely compact and completely redeveloped, cost-effective diaphragm drive.
The LCD variant, which is available from September 2023, complies with the US metering pump API industry standard 675, so it can be used for numerous complex processes in a wide range of industries.
