Textile Industry & Metering Pumps

Dosing pumps find their applications in various industries and sectors. One such area of application is in the textile industry, where it is used for fiber production. More and more synthetic fibers becoming popular in today’s market, and one essential equipment used in their production a metering pump.

In addition, dosing pumps are used in various other applications such as brushes and so on. The textile industry is very important when it comes to consumer goods. From clothing and domestic textiles to technical textiles just to name a few, its importance cannot be over emphasized. There are lots of areas where metering pumps are needed in the textile production process.

The characteristics and performance of a dosing pump make it a piece of highly sought-after equipment in the market. For instance, in a textile factory, a metering pump ensures that the polymer used in the process is transported uniformly to various locations in the process. A dosing pump guarantees a constant flow rate, and this is very important in ensuring consistent quality in the desired material.

If your media has low viscosity, there is no better pump to utilize than a metering pump as it is ideal in accurately delivering media with low viscosities to locations in the process. Durability, accuracy, and efficiency are some of the words that describe the type of performance you would get from a metering pump.

Metering Pump Selection

The following are some off the operating parameters to consider when selecting a dosing pump for your textile and dye processes.

Flow rate

This determines the number of chemicals injected into the process. Get the right size of the dosing pump for your system to enjoy the best performance and precision. Dosing pumps shouldn’t be excessively large due to the accuracy of the flow required.

Chemical Composition

Check the fluid to see whether they cause damages to the pump. Damages could be in the form of adverse reactions, corrosion, and erosion. There are different types of metering pumps in the market, each with its own features and characteristics. You can pick from stainless steel, plastic, and more depending on your requirements.


This is simply the resistance of a fluid to flow. Know the viscosity of the fluid before injecting it through the pump. Water like fluids might not require any special needs. On the other hand, the highly viscous liquid will need unique dosing pumps.

Environmental Conditions

Exposure to water, air, and sunlight would be put into consideration. Outdoor pumps and indoor pumps require different sets of attention if you want to maximize performance. It is also important that the pump adheres to the safety standard of the environment.
