A dosing pump is a small, positive displacement pump. It is designed to pump a very precise flow rate of a chemical or substance into either a water, steam or gas flow. A dosing pump will deliver this precise flow rate of chemical or other product by a number of different methods but it generally involves drawing a measured amount into a chamber and then injecting this volume of chemical into the pipe or tank being dosed. A dosing pump is generally quite small and is powered by either a small electric motor or air actuator.
A dosing pump is a positive displacement pump designed to transport very precise flow rates of a chemical or other substance into a fluid stream. The mechanism of this industrial pump involves drawing a measured quantity of fluid into the chamber and then injecting this volume rate into the container being dosed.
Dosing pumps are low-volume pumps with controllable discharge rates that are used to inject additives or difficult-to-mix fluids into mixing, pumping, or batch/tank systems. Dosing pumps are usually made from plastic, thermoplastic, or stainless steel and feature mounting holes or accessories. Dosing pumps often have a controller which enables the fluid flow to be monitored and adjusted easily.
The global market is expected to grow from an estimated market size of USD 771.8 million in 2018 to USD 949.3 million by 2023, at a CAGR of 4.23%. The overall market is set to witness significant growth because of the growing demand for accurate and precise dosing from chemical, oil & gas, and manufacturing industries, along with increasing investments in the water & wastewater treatment sector.
The market for up to 25 bar segment is expected to grow at a higher CAGR during the forecast period. Hydraulic dosing pumps with discharge pressure up to 25 bar are used for dosing purposes in sectors including oil & gas, chemical & petrochemical, power generation, water treatment, and manufacturing. Thus, the rise in demand for hydraulic dosing pumps led by significant investments in these industries is expected to drive the demand for hydraulic dosing pumps during the forecast period.
