15 FROM THE EXPERTS… Progressive Cavity Pump (PCP) versus Gear Pump (DVX) Regarding flow rate variations: “… PCP pumps appear to have distinct advantages. The volumetric flow rate variations per each complete shaft rotation are typically small; whereas for the DVX pumps the discharge rate varies sinusoidally from zero to a max value as the stepper motor traverses one half of a complete rotation.” - Professor Gareth McKinley, Department of Mechanical Engineering, Massachusetts Institute of Technology “Although the particle sizes are relatively small and would be handled by a typical gear pump, the general designs are more complex than the HERO system, hence more expensive to manufacture and replace.” - Professor Ian A. Frigaard, Department of Mechanical Engineering, University of British Columbia “For low (or no) VOC applications, I would be cautious at using gear pumps. These are typically made to high precision and will lose performance with wear.” - Professor Ian A. Frigaard, Department of Mechanical Engineering, University of British Columbia Conclusions: “In continuous operation, the flow rate variation per cycle will be higher in the DVX system; whereas PCP systems provide more uniform flow rate output; in my general experience the flow rate output from PCP systems are largely insensitive to changes in fluid rheology; by contrast the possibility of fluid-dependent pump slip (and/or cavitation) in the DVX system (and the variability from one paint formulation to another) is likely to be higher.” -- Professor Gareth McKinley, Department of Mechanical Engineering, Massachusetts Institute of Technology The only “design ready” Zero VOC Automatic Colorant Dispensers in North America
