CC/REV question

CC/REV question

CC/REV question


I am new into pumps so my question might sound not professional but, I need to get around 50ml/minute flow by utilizing gear pump. Do I better go for 5cc/rev pump and use 10 RPM motor or is it better to have 1 cc/rev or even lower and use more RPM?

And another question, what pump would you suggest for such a low flow rates?

RE: CC/REV question

You really need to search on either "dosing pumps" or "metering pumps"

You find things like http://www.axflow.com/en-gb/site/products/applicat...

A lot depends on how accurate you need to be and how much money you have to spend.

In general though it is easier to control a reasonable speed so more RPM is better.

Remember - More details = better answers
Also: If you get a response it's polite to respond to it.
