LEWA, based in Leonberg, Baden-Württemberg, has been specialising in pumps and systems for metering liquids for 70 years.The world’s leading manufacturer of metering and process diaphragm pumps produces individual, efficient system solutions for its customers. Areas of application are metering requirements, conveying, mixing and odorising tasks – i.e. mixing of odour-intensive substances, especially with gases – in very different industries from chemicals to mining.
LEWA’s ecodos series diaphragm metering pumps are used in sensitive areas such as food or pharmaceuticals, for example for adding additives in the pharmaceutical sector or metering aroma in food. One specific application is the addition of omega-3 oil to baby food. The ecodos series operates in the so-called low-pressure range, i.e. at a maximum discharge pressure of 20 bar, and with a flow rate of 16 to 1460 litres/hour. This requires pumps that not only allow precise control of the amount and time of addition, but also deliver the ingredients particularly gently.
