What Types of Pumps Can Be Integrated With the DICE™?​

The DICE™ chemical dosing modules are designed to be integrated with various dosing pump types. The typical installation is with a diaphragm dosing pump, but it can also be integrated with progressive cavity pumps, like for polymer applications, with peristaltic pumps, gear pumps and vane pumps. 

Diaphragm Pump

Progressive Cavity Pump

Peristaltic Pump

Gear Pump

Vane Pump

Diaphragm Spring Loaded Valve

The only difference in the DICE™ integration is the diaphragm spring loaded set point. The DICE™ is equipped with a diaphragm spring loaded valve that serves three purposes.

1. A Back Pressure Maintaining Valve

For diaphragm dosing pumps, the valve maintains a constant discharge pressure, allowing for precision and reliability. 

2. A Non Return Valve

The valve design allows for a great non return capability with an extremely efficient sealing. 

3. Anti-Siphon Valve

The spring loaded diaphragm valve also acts as a anti-siphon valve.

The Valve Set Point

Diaphragm Dosing Pumps

For a diaphragm dosing pump, the spring loaded valve should act as a back pressure valve. Therefore, the set point should be slightly higher than the process pressure.

Progressive Cavity Pumps, Gear Pumps & Vane Pumps

For these types of pumps, the valve set point should be lower than the process pressure. It allows the valve to have a minimal pressure loss during pump operating while acting as a check valve if required.

Peristaltic Pumps

Peristaltic pumps being sensitive to outlet pressure, it’s important not to uselessly increase the outlet pressure seen by the pump. Therefore, the set point should be lower than the process pressure.
