In the oil and gas industry, in gas odorizing and in the energy industry, fluid components are often metered in extremely small amounts, proportionally to the variable reference value.
MAH, MBH and MLM micro-metering pumps from LEWA represent an efficient solution for exactly these types of applications: They have an extremely wide control range for maximum metering flexibility and can also still implement small flow rates. With four different solenoid power sizes, they cover an extensive field of application.
The small pump types of the series are also available with solenoids without Ex-protection; these can work against higher pressure. The two control systems specifically developed for this program permit adaptation to a wide variety of different tasks.
Extremely large adjustment range
Precision is our strength: LEWA micro-metering pumps provide maximum metering flexibility through an extremely large control range of 1:1000. This allows us to fulfill the most stringent requirements for sensitive metering tasks in various industries.
Safety and reliability in extreme operating states
For us, safety and reliability comes first: The pump is not subjected to damage, even after operating errors occur or in extreme operating states. We offer maximum protection for user and machine through built-in safety mechanisms - not only when excess primary pressure is present, but also when the pressure or suction line is closed.
Low maintenance and service life costs
LEWA micro-metering pumps have minimal life cycle costs. They achieve this advantage compared to other micro-metering pumps with high energy efficiency, low operating and maintenance costs and an extremely long lifetime of the diaphragm and process valves.
LEWA micro-metering pumps are not only leak-proof, but also absolutely odor-tight. This ensures that no contamination can occur.
Suitable for virtually all fluids
The micro-metering pumps are suitable for many different fluids. Whether they are dangerous, toxic, abrasive, viscous, environmentally harmful or sensitive fluids, the user-specific configuration always gives you the correct diaphragm metering pump.
Integrated pressure relief valve (only for MLM)
A pressure relief valve in the hydraulic part of the diaphragm pump prevents potential overload situations in operation. This valve is individually adjustable and can therefore be adapted to different operating situations.
Superior metal diaphragm technology
The metering pumps are equipped with sophisticated metal diaphragm technology, which enables discharge pressures up to 500 bar. At the same time, they still meter very precisely at an accuracy of ± 1%.
The pumps are dry-run safe. No sliding seals or packages are inserted. This guarantees the highest process safety.
Compliance with common standards
LEWA micro-metering pumps fulfill common standards such as DVGW G280. They are also explosion-protected up to EX-Zone 1.
MAH series without explosion protection
For non-hazardous applications, we manufacture our MAH-series microflow pumps also without explosion protection. Thus we can offer you even more economical micro metering pumps.
Specially adapted control unit
Rely on precision and our experience: We offer you several specially adapted controls for hazardous and non-hazardous zone (for example, MPM, MSG, OLK, OKR.)
A pump is only as good as its control and regulation system. That's why we provide precise flow meters in different variations for accurate control.
Special design materials
If the process demands it, wetted parts such as pumps heads and valves will be made of special materials such as stainless steel 316/316L (1.4401/1.4404), Hastelloy or Duplex steel and PVC.
Heating and cooling jacket
With heating and cooling jackets, our pumps are suitable for almost any temperature and can convey fluids at low temperatures or extreme heat.
LEWA uses numerous special types of valves such as specially hardened valves for liquified gases or valves with minimal dead space for the food and pharmaceutical production.
Integration into process control systems
The signal acquisition of process control systems is achieved analogously or digitally. Flow rate is adjusted via electric or pneumatic stroke adjustment, alternatively by motor drive (FU).
In the process of documentation, we consider your requirements and provide inspection records, print samples, diagrams of output characteristics and registration papers on request.
Drive unit data
With the various micro-metering pump variants MAH, MBH and MLM – available with or without explosion protection – we cover flow rates from 0.01 to 55 l/h and discharge pressures from 4 to 560 bar.
|Type||Without Ex protection||With Ex protection|
|Flow rate [l/h]||At max. pressure [bar]||Flow rate [l/hr]||At max. pressure [bar]|
Various sizes for any intended use: MAH, MBH and MLM differ significantly in their dimensions, MAH and MLM are each available in two different sizes.
|Type||L [mm]||B [mm]||H [mm]|
|MLM 15/40 -3||450||140||260|
|MLM 15/40 -20||450||180||260|
LEWA has been your expert in pumps and packages since the 1950s. With us, you get everything from a single source: Our custom-built packages are used all around the world for offshore crude oil and natural gas production. From China to the United Arab Emirates, strong partners rely on our expertise for crude oil exploration applications.More Details
Natural gas, oxygen, and nitrogen are odorless but potentially dangerous. This is why these gases are "odorized" with as strong a smelling substance as possible. For more than 40 years, LEWA has been developing systems for the odorization of gases such as natural gases, biogases, and liquefied gases. This process is enormously important, so the odorizing system has to operate precisely and reliably.More Details
Crude oil must be cleaned, separated, and converted (refined) until the final products suitable for sale are made (e.g., gas, diesel, heating oil, lubricants, propane, butane). LEWA supports you with pumps and metering systems, which are used in the refining process during chemical metering. Application with our products are distillation plants, coker, cracker, or visbreaker, for example. Ask our experts for more information!More Details
