RLP 3K Series

The TechValve RLP 3KS series system is an electronic servo driven variable ratio 3 component system. The system produces ratio accuracy of +/- 1% and requires no tools or mechanical adjustments. All setup and control functions are set using the touch screen HMI.

The onboard H.M.I. touch screen control panel gives the operator full control of all the systems standard features. Features such as:

RLP 3K Series
  • Manual and Robot/Automation modes.
  • Recipe Page.
  • Recipe set up.*
  • Material pressure settings.
  • Material flow rates.
  • Pump calibration.
  • A/B & C jog controls.
  • A/B & C pump selection.**
  • Ratio Setting, A/B & C.
  • Ratio check flow rate.
  • Run ratio checks.
  • Line flush.
*There are 6 standard recipe locations.
**There are 7 total pump conbonations.
RLP 3K Series A/B PanelView Touch Screen:

The touch screen controls are very intuitive and requires no programing experience on the part of the operator. All programing pre-sets can be set and then locked and only accessed using a multi digit access code.
  For manual operation the system uses diaphragm faced digital pressure transducers to activate the metering pumps based on RUN and STOP pressure set points.

RLP 3K Series Robot/Auto operation/integration:

When coupled with automation or robotics the system can accept a 4-20/5-24vdc or a relay contact for RUN and STOP operation.

In automation mode the robot/automation controller has full control of: start/stop, flow rate, pressure set points, line flush and recipe selection.

Rotary Linear Pumps:

The RLP 3KS system uses positive displacement Rotary Linear Pumps (RLP) for smooth continuous flow of materials with viscosity ranges from water to non-flowable paste materials. With flow rates from 5-5196 cc/min (at a 1:1:1 ratio) for our standard pumps the RLP 3KS system can easily handle multiple operators.NOTE: OUR OPTIONAL PC PUMPS ARE USED FOR LOWER FLOW RATES.

Most manufactures of plural component systems use reciprocating pumps which can cause severe pressure drops with every pump cycle. The RLP's in the TechValve system are rotary and NON-reciprocating, which produces a constant steady flow of material to the spray valve/gun which eliminates any surging, collapse or winking of the fan pattern.

Benefits of the RLP:

  • Universal chemical compatibility. Materials of construction, 303, 304 or 316 SS, hard anodized aluminum, UHMWPE.
  • No metal to metal contact of the metering components.
  • Excellent wear resistance with very abrasive materials.
  • High output for its size. 3½” OD pump = 1732cc/min @ 400 rpm per pump.
  • True continuous metered flow rotary design (non-reciprocating.)
  • No pressure balancing required.
  • 100% volumetrically efficient, 0 (zero) slip at any pressure.
  • Viscosity and viscosity changes of the material have no effect on material output or metering accuracy.
  • Dispense/back pressure has no effect on material output or metering accuracy.
  • Operating/metering pressures >3000 psi.
  • Will produce a “known” repeatable quantity of material for every degree of rotation regardless of viscosity or pressure.
  • Pump output can be calibrated to servo motor encoder counts (no flow meters needed to track material output).
  • No “back-flow” through the pump. When the pump stops material pressure is maintained.
Our closed loop servo drives guarantee ratio accuracy and powerful, smooth fluid delivery.

Closed Loop Servo Drives:
  RLP 3K Series
Upper enclosure opens for easy service.

The PLC control system coupled with the touch screen HMI makes set-up simple and easy for both human operators or when coupled with automation or robotics. Using standard 120vac. 60Hz/20-30 amp power makes initial set up fast and easy. Pressure fed using pressure pots or transfer pumps. NO pressure balancing required.
