The numerous adjustment and control functions on the solenoid metering pump Beta b have long made it a successful product range for meeting the requirements of modern water treatment and chemical metering applications. It has a fitting dosing head for every chemical, making Beta b suitable for universal use. Starting from the beginning of 2016, ProMinent has extended the function range of Beta b without restricting its tried and tested characteristics. The pump is now available with the option of a 0/4…20 mA input.
Added to this are a virtually zero wear drive and excellent continuous running characteristics, which keep operating costs down. Chemicals can be metered with great accuracy thanks to stroke length settings of 0 - 100% and stroke rate settings in 10 stages between 10 - 100%. What's more, the Beta b can be easily operated with voltages of 100 to 230 V.
The standard signal of 0/4…20 mA commonly used in industry will allow the pump's performance to be controlled from a remote control room. Adjusting between 0/4…20 mA is incredibly simple: the Beta b integrates the corresponding positions on the Pulse Control Switch. Since the 0/4…20 mA signal is not affected by electromagnetic interference, the Beta b product range can also be safely operated using long control lines. Potential control line failure is recognised as a fault and can be quickly reported to the control room. Another pioneering feature is the very easy way in which the Beta b can be integrated in centrally controlled systems. This new function will continue to make Beta b the product range of choice for water treatment and chemical metering.
