Dual Channel Dispensing for Battery Manufacturing
PDS-100 Programmable Dispensing System is the solution for electrolyte and slurry dispensing for battery manufacturing process applications requiring maintenance free, high precision fluid control.

The PDS-100 is designed for high accuracy, low volume dispensing of electrolytes, slurries, and metal forming lubricants

used in the manufacture of AA, AAA, C, D, & Button Cell batteries. Internal pump components of the PDS-100 are made of chemically inert, sapphire-hard ceramics, making it ideal for dispensing corrosive KOH electrolytes, as well as viscous, abrasive slurries.

PDS-100 Programmable DispenserThe PDS-100 design integrates FMI’s patented CeramPump valveless piston pump technology with precision stepper motor control and integral electronics, all housed in a rugged space-saving enclosure suitable for countertop or wall mounting. Intuitive programming is menu-driven and accomplished using easy access front-panel membrane switches.

The dual channel configuration of the PDS-100 increases production output two fold at a fraction of the cost of two purchasing separate pumps. Furthermore, the dual channel version maintains full-featured independent pump control and footprint of the single channel version.

FMI’s patented CeramPump valveless design accomplishes all fluid control functions with only one moving part, a single rotating and reciprocating piston made of chemically inert, sapphire-hard ceramics. Using dimensionally stable ceramic internal components while eliminating check valves, results in a dispensing system that will maintain 0.5 precision for millions of dispenses without recalibration.

The PDS-100 is available in single and duplex configurations to accommodate dispense and flow ranges from 2 microlitres per dispense up to 2 litres per minute continuous pumping.
