LEWA supplies you with individual chemical pumps and customized system solutions for various areas of application in the chemical industry.
Fluids with special kinematics are pumped in many filling tasks and high-precision chromatography processes in the pharmaceutical industry. We developed the LEWA intellidrive technology for this purpose. The highly dynamic servomotor makes it possible to regulate the pump's stroke times in an infinitely variable manner, thus modeling individual pumping characteristics according to the demands of your system and process.
This intelligent motion control also enables the metering of highly viscous fluids and facilitates metering of very small volumes, even over very wide control ranges. In combination with a second pump, nearly pulsation-free volume flows can be generated through accurate synchronization.
LEWA intellidrive pumps are mechatronic diaphragm metering pumps with intelligent drive technology via servomotor. The innovative servomotor drive features various advantages compared to other drive technologies.
Interfaces such as Ethernet and Profibus ensure problem-free system integration. Pumps can be integrated as field equipment in the higher-level process control technology. Prefabricated plugs on the pump motor connect the supply and signal lines with the control unit. Analog inputs and outputs, for example for valve control, can be expanded.
Precision is our strength: The drive of the LEWA intellidrive metering pump can be configured in an extremely large control range of at least 1:150. This allows us to fulfill the most stringent requirements for sensitive metering tasks, for example in the pharmaceutical industry.
The LEWA intellidrive technology can be used to model, program and save individual suction and discharge stroke characteristics. Using various suction and discharge stroke frequencies, high-viscosity fluids are drawn in slowly and with low pressure loss via the smaller valve nominal width – and then quickly fed to the process in the discharge stroke.
By using two synchronized intellidrive pumps, a virtually pulsation-free volume flow can be generated. Therefore, the piping system, in some cases, can make do without pulsation dampers. These are often hard to clean, particularly in hygienic applications.
Infinitely variable stroke times permit fluids with special kinematics to be moved successfully. This makes it terrifically well suited as a metering pump in filling tasks or in highly precise chromatography systems in the pharmaceutical area.
The LEWA intellidrive implements extremely small flow rates up to 1 ml/h with precision. No other industrial pump reaches the degree of precision often required in pharmaceutical and biotechnological processes.
The intellidrive series fulfills the internationally valid quality standard of the American Petroleum Institute API 675. In this standard, all requirements for a displacement pump in industrial settings are defined with respect to design, construction and performance. We would be happy to present you with further certifications, if desired.
With various pump heads, the LEWA intellidrive diaphragm metering pump covers a large performance spectrum. This allows us to provide you with a high-performance, energy-saving pump for any desired application.
|Pump type/flow rate [l/h]||Permitted pressure for stainless steel [bar]||Permitted pressure for plastic [bar]|
Save space and weight through multiplex arrangement of pumps or arrangement in the compact boxer design.
We provide various pump heads for different applications. Here, the spectrum ranges from all-purpose variants to special designs for high temperatures, pressures or aggressive fluids.
Pump head ecodos: Mechanically actuated diaphragm pump head with monitored four-layer PTFE sandwich diaphragm; very robust pump head technology for pressures up to 20 bar.
|Flow rate||1,5 m³/h|
|Operational capability||Can be installed on all intellidrive ecodos diaphragm metering pumps.|
State of the art universal diaphragm pump head with PTFE sandwich diaphragm for maximum operational reliability The patented DPS technology also enables a suction lift cabability that is globally unique in the field of hydraulically actuated diaphragm pumps. Can be installed on all ecoflow pumps.
