Courtesy: Fluid MeteringThe PDS-100 Programmable Dispensing System by Fluid Metering utilizes FMI's valveless pumping design to accurately deliver gearbox lubricating grease, independent of viscosity. The PDS-100 is able to accomplish this at pressures low enough to prevent any seal damage to industrial robot gearboxes.

The PDS-100 is available in single and dual channel configurations and is easily integrated with industrial process controllers. Dispense and metering rates range from a few microliters per dispense up to 768 ml per minute continuous metering.
