MCLiquid/G

Coloring with liquid can be a challenging operation. It all depends on reliable dosing, often at extreme low dosage rates.

Variation in viscosity of liquids and spill-free handling are the main issues.

Movacolor has developed a modular liquid dosing system with one universal motor unit, two pump types and several spill-free packaging concepts. This offers you the possibility of composing your optimum configuration.

Peristaltic pump

The peristaltic pump is used in processes with frequent color change. Available as gravimetric & volumetric dosing system.

Advantages:

Easy color change The gravimetric system provides a constant output Low dosing rates Easy to clean

Disadvantages:

- Limited life time of pump hose - Limited pressure build-up - In volumetric mode the output depends on viscosity

A gravimetric peristaltic pump is an ideal combination for color changes. The gravimetric control automatically compensates for the disadvantages of a peristaltic pump:

the output of a peristaltic pump is heavily depending on the viscosity of the liquid, the type of pump hose used and the age/ wear of the pump hose.

Mono pump/ gear pump

In case of long runs we advise to use a mono pump. Available as gravimetric & volumetric dosing system.

Advantages:

long life time can build pressure up to 10 barg output independent of viscosity easy change of pumps extreme low dosing rates (gear pump) high dosing rates (mono pump)

Disadvantages:

system should never run dry difficult to clean

Both systems are also available in a volumetric configuration.

To complete the package we supply in-line mixers and special nozzle adapters for easy installation and easy cleaning.

MCLiquid: your total liquid dosing concept.

"We tried several liquid systems but this system is by far the best"

Benefits

  • Reliability and traceability The advanced gravimetric technology takes away the pre-calibration time and gives you 100% control of the dosed quantities, 24 hours a day.
  • User-friendly The dosing unit is very user-friendly thanks to the design. The touch screen is full color and easy to use.
  • Total liquid dosing concept The modular design offers quick and easy color change. The packaging concept guarantees spill-free handling. The gravimetric MCLiquid can be integrated with our gravimetric solid dosing or our MCContinuous Blender system.
  • Gravimetric or volumetric The MCLiquid is available in a gravimetric or volumetric version. The volumetric dosing unit comes with a MC18 controller.
