The most extensive Voice-of-the-Customer program in the history of Milton Roy told us that customers were looking for a higher level of efficiency, responsiveness, intelligence and control.

Milton Roy, the world’s leading manufacturer of controlled-volume metering pumps, and a brand of Accudyne Industries, today announced the E.R.I.C.™ metering pump series, which is designed to bring a higher level of Efficiency, Responsiveness, Intelligence and Control to the Water Treatment and Chemical Processing Industries.

“The most extensive Voice-of-the-Customer program in the history of Milton Roy told us that customers were looking for a higher level of efficiency, responsiveness, intelligence and control – and E.R.I.C. is the result of the R&D that was inspired by that feedback,” said Jim Carling, Global Product Line Manager for Milton Roy Industrial and Municipal Products.    

Available in two control configurations - manual and enhanced – the E.R.I.C. metering pump series fits seamlessly into the process control requirements of any water, wastewater or general process application where accuracy and dependability are demanded. The manual model includes a wide range of standard features, while the enhanced model provides a broader range of capabilities. Both models set new standards in the following areas:

Efficiency: Driven by advanced variable speed technology, the E.R.I.C metering pump is designed to handle low flows, with rates as low as .006 GPH (.023 L/H), up to 18 GPH (68 L/H) without being affected by changes in discharge pressure. A highly efficient mechanically actuated diaphragm provides maximum evacuation on every stroke, regardless of the capacity setting. This proven technology is easy to maintain and provides years of maximum up-time service.

Responsiveness: the E.R.I.C. metering pump’s innovative variable speed drive offers 1,000:1 turndown capabilities, with +/- 1 percent steady state accuracy. The new drive features instantaneous capacity adjustment capabilities that offer superior accuracy and responsiveness where system pressures fluctuate or are inconsistent. As a result, E.R.I.C. provides greater flexibility for handling a wide range of chemicals, polymers, viscous fluids and slurries.

Intelligence: the E.R.I.C. metering pump features enhanced process control capabilities that are built on a universal technology platform that can adapt as technology evolves. The backlit color display allows for convenient navigation in five languages: English, French, Spanish, Portuguese and Chinese. The pump also features a universal power supply (100-240V, 50/60 Hz) that provides maximum flexibility.

Control: The E.R.I.C. metering pump series can communicate with a variety of digital and analog devices to administer a variety of control schemes such as pulse input, timed events, or batch processes. Remote connectivity enables control and feedback in real time.

A new and innovative member of the Milton Roy brand of products, the E.R.I.C. metering pump series enables a few models to cover a wide range of applications for integrators and end-users. Numerous options and accessories, such as backpressure valves, safety valves, pulsation dampeners, calibration columns, and degassing valves and systems are available to customize the pumps for specific applications. Multiple liquid end materials, including: polypropylene, PVDF, and 316L stainless steel are offered to fit the application requirements. Backed by a three-year warranty, the E.R.I.C. metering pumps features the rugged construction and durability that Milton Roy is known for.

Today, a growing number of municipalities are requiring the NSF 61 certification for metering pump equipment. E.R.I.C. metering pumps are certified to NSF 61, assuring potable water plants that the new pumps are safe to use and are compatible with the chemicals being injected into the water treatment process.

A series of training videos explaining how to navigate, calibrate, and configure the E.R.I.C. metering pump series are now available online.
