MCLiquid: reliable and spill free liquid dosing

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.


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


  • 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.


  • 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)


  • 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.
