Fluidic Systems, Santa Ana, CA has developed a new metering pump technology for processing 1, 2, and 3 component solventborne, waterborne, and solventless adhesives. The technology is based on the company’s patented implementation of a linear displacement pump (LDP) — a double-acting, positive displacement, continuous flow, rod displacement pump driven by PLC controlled DC servo motors. The PKCD systems have wide ranging dispensing parameters. This paper discusses the comparative advantages of an LDP design, control features, dispensing parameters, and economic efficiencies of operation versus batch processing.
