Bürkert’s patented pneumatic dosing system for fluids can be used in all applications that require dosing of defined sample quantities with maximum repeatable accuracy. Examples of dosing applications include vaccines, chemicals in industrial washing machines, flavorings in the beverage industry, pharmaceutical raw materials and dosing tasks in filling machines. The high precision is made possible by the use of pneumatics. The dosing system is actuated by means of pressure and vacuum, which provide substantially more power than conventional actuating systems. This power makes it possible to control the defined dosing quantity with a precision of ±2 %, largely independent of temperature and viscosity. The size of the dosing chamber defines the dosing volume per stroke. It can be between 150 and 750 µl.
