LEWA production units

Customized production units for metering or mixing

Whether the task involves metering, mixing, separating or controlling temperature, we work with you to develop the ideal process sequence. To this end, we create the perfect metering package and mixing installation for your manufacturing process.

We create flow rates between 10 ml/h and 180 m3, and discharge pressures of up to 3500 bar.

Metering and mixing systems

Custom solutions for various applications.

For decades now, we have built customized production units and provided the associated preliminary planning, on-site data collection, as well as testing and calculation services for secondary systems and pressure conditions. Our knowledge of intelligent process management and the instrumentation and control technology required for it yield perfect results.

Even as early as the project planning stage, LEWA is at your side with the experience and expertise you need to reduce your process steps, prevent pipeline problems, save space and equipment, and design the process economically.

Intelligent and smart controls

The control system as the intelligence center of the system

Precise, fast control of the metering or mixing system when the setpoint value is changed 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.

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.
