Milton Roy assists in meltblown cloth mixing solution for mask production
Non-woven fabric and meltblown cloth are the two main materials used for medical and N95 masks, with the meltblown cloth being used in as the middle layer, acting as the core of the entire mask. The mRoy series metering pumps from Milton Roy help customers to achieve the levels of accuracy and reliability required by raw material mixing and injection, meeting the demands of the meltblown cloth production process.
Designed to meet global industry standards, mRoy series metering pumps provide accurate dosing of a wide range of fluids. The steady-state accuracy of the pump can reach ±0.5%, with a maximum turndown ratio of 100:1. Their long, 96,000 hour service life is achieved by adopting an integrated adjustable pressure relief valve and a hydraulically balanced diaphragm design. The mRoy series of metering pumps also provides the flexibility required to meet the requirements of a diverse range of processes and production needs.
