PFM Overview

The Process Flow Mix system (PFM) is based around precision and control of the media being dispensed. The unit utilises shot metering pumps coupled to hydraulic drive cylinders. Pneumatic inlet valves are used to fill the cylinder with outlet valve used to control the pre pressurisation process ensuring the cylinder is correctly charged and ready for the dispense cycle.

Flowmeters can be fitted to confirm the ratio for quality feedback purposes.
