Industrial RobotValveless, Ceramic Pumps Ideal for
Critical Industrial Low Pressure Robot Gearbox Lubrication

Valveless, Ceramic Pumps from Fluid Metering, Inc. (FMI) provide the solution for metering high viscosity grease at low pressure for precision lubrication of industrial robot gearboxes.

To maximize productivity and eliminate downtime, industrial robots require continual lubrication. The PDS100 Programmable Dispensing System utilizes FMI's unique valveless pumping design to accurately deliver gearbox lubricating grease, independent of viscosity. But more importantly, the PDS100 accomplishes this at pressures low enough to prevent any seal damage to the gearbox.

PDS100The PDS100 is available in both single and dual channel configurations and is easily integrated with industrial process controllers. Dispense and metering rates range from a few microliters per dispense up to 768 ml per minute continuous metering. Fluid Metering's valveless, ceramic pumps have only one moving part in contact with the fluid.

The sapphire-hard internal components and valveless design of FMI pumps eliminate accuracy drift typical of pumping systems that rely on valves, diaphragms, peristaltic tubing, and pressurized feed lines for fluid delivery.

For over 55 years FMI pumps have been used for industrial automation, medical instrumentation, laboratory R&D, chemical process, pharmaceutical packaging, mining, alternative energy, water treatment, environmental monitoring, food processing and much more.
