GRAND JUNCTION, CO USA ― May 2017 ― GPD Global, a manufacturer of precision fluid dispensing systems for high-volume 24/7, low-volume/high-mix, and R&D production, offers a breakthrough in uniform fluid dispensing and repeatability by ensuring a consistent fluid supply to the pump regardless of reservoir size or fluid level.
The patented Fluid Pressure Control (FPC) is a Real Time Process Control system that ensures a constant feed of fluid to a dispensing pump. Fluid Pressure Control is adaptable to any pump type and it improves the overall dispense repeatability and quality from beginning to end of a fluid reservoir.
Fluid Dispensing pumps, in general, are very repeatable devices with high accuracy control systems and precision machining; however, when consistency of fluid entering the dispense pump varies, the output also varies. Typically, operators make numerous changes to the fluid pressure or dispense pump parameters to compensate for fluid variations originating from the syringe fluid level. Fluid Pressure Control automatically eliminates this operator interaction and ensures the feed pressure supplied into the pump is constant. By maintaining a constant pressure of fluid into the pump that is independent of reservoir pressure, Real Time Process Control (FPC) ensures the dispense pump always has sufficient fluid supply. The results are consistent and repeatable fluid displacement.
Fluid Pressure Control (FPC) systems can be upgraded to GPD Global’s MAX Series and DS Series dispense systems and are available as a new dispenser option. It can also be added to new system configurations. If you are looking to improve dispensing results for bench-top or other systems, the Fluid Pressure Control (FPC) system is available as a stand-alone controller and hardware set. It is compatible with all types of dispense pumps, including auger, needle, pinch tube, and even jetting pumps. Just set the feed pressure and let our patented Fluid Pressure Control (FPC) system do its magic – maintaining a constant fluid input to the dispense pump for Uniform Dispense Repeatability.
