LEWA customer specific metering systems

Customer-Specific Metering Systems from LEWA

Is there a special procedure in your production process that requires a custom metering system? Then you've come to the right place: For more than 60 years, LEWA has been creating customer-specific metering systems and handling every process phase from planning and production through to installation and maintenance.

We create flow rates between 10 ml/h and 180 m3, and discharge pressures of up to 1200 bar.

Metering systems from LEWA

A custom-designed system for every application.

Metering, cooling, heating, controlling, regulating – our customer-specific metering systems ensure the interaction of the pump, instrumentation, and accessories. LEWA takes your application and specification, your interface logic, and your ideas into consideration and implements them accurately and comprehensively.

We handle all the preliminary planning, on-site data collection, and testing and calculation of the secondary systems and pressure conditions. The metering system or filling system is integrated into your new or existing plant.

Intelligent and smart controls

The control system as the intelligence center of the metering system

Precise, fast control of the metered flow in the case of changes to setpoint values or other deviations ensures that the end product is always of top quality. This is achieved by a control system developed by LEWA, which continuously monitors the plausibility of set values and actual values. Our systems are equipped with PLC interfaces to Profibus DP, CAN, MOD-Bus or Ethernet, for example.

LEWA pumps are at the heart of our systems

We prefer to use our own diaphragm metering pumps manufactured in-house for our metering, mixing and filling systems. These are characterized by continuous stroke length and speed adjustment, ensuring an accurate and wide adjustment range. Pressure has virtually no influence on the metering characteristic, which makes monitoring easy and precise. What's more, high metering accuracy paired with a flow measurement and monitoring system ensures reliable and reproducible production.
