In-Pump Dilution & Mixing
The innovative in-pump dilution and mixer design has revolutionised the dispensing of highly concentrated liquids. For example, a 60% brix orange juice concentrate can now be precisely diluted and mixed within the Quantex BIB-19 Dilution pump. The in-pump dilution mechanism is also suitable for highly concentrated detergents, colourants and flavourings.
High viscosity concentrates are accurately pumped by the single-use Quantex technology. Mains water is fed from the dispenser into the pump via a pressure regulator and solenoid. Water flowrate is controlled through a precise orifice in the pump. Concentrate is pumped from the pack and combines with the water where it is mixed by the mixer nozzle. The mix ratio can be adjusted by increasing the speed of the motor and in turn the concentrate flowrate through the pump. This means that with a pack recognition feature in the dispenser it is possible to put a variety of packs with different mix ratios in the same dispenser channel. The water supply stays constant and the motor speed is adjusted according to feedback from the pack recognition software. This opens up the opportunity for multi-use dispensers. The dispenser can be used for fruit juice in the morning, coffee at lunchtime and alcohol in the evening.
All mixing occurs within the single-use pump eliminating the risk of cross contamination and simplifies cleaning regimes as no concentrate or diluted concentrate passes through the dispenser. See our system design page for more dispenser design inspiration.
