About preeflow® eco-PEN Precision Volumetric Dosing Pump, for Highly Accurate Repeatable Dispensing
The preeflow eco-PEN is a precision volumetric, positive displacement, dosing/dispensing system that gives you accuracy and repeatability by means of a rotor which turns inside a stator. The preeflow eco-PEN uses a progressive cavity pump principle which doses and dispenses a wide range of material viscosities with no stress to the material, and absolute control.
Features & Benefits
- Precise, process-stable dispensing as small as 0.001ml (1μl)
- Highly repeatable and consistent dispensing, with an accuracy of ±1%, >99% of the time
- Gentle product dosing process using positive displacement
- Linearly proportional control characteristics
- Wide control and application range
- Controlled reverse flow and clean product break
- Easy system integration, including as part of our archytas series of robot integrations
The preeflow eco-PEN is designed for dot-dispensing, bead application with dispensing rate adjustable to the run speed, and encapsulation applications for:
- Electronics packaging
- Medical device assembly
- Biological chemistry
- Optics and photonics
The eco-CONTROL EC200 control system provides total control of the dispensing process. It is designed for either benchtop or rack-mounted location, dependent on the model.
The unit is microprocessor-controlled. It is simple to operate, without sub-menus, and has graphic support. External signals can be connected via I/O ports to a PLC for control in automated lines. A wide variety of dosing programs with part management can be stored.
Error messages for filling level and motor current are also monitored (an RS232 interface is provided).
It is possible to control two eco-PEN precision volume dosing units (as a factory-fit option).
- Quantity program
- Start/stop program
- Time program
- Set-volume readout in g or ml
- Dosing flow readout in ml/min and g/min
- Storage of dosing programs with part management
- Set pressure / actual pressure reading in bar/psi

Syringe adapter with integrated bleed valve
For use in applications where the chosen material is supplied in syringe barrels, an optional adapter with an integrated bleed valve allows for direct dispensing without the risk of air bubble formation.
Made of black anodized aluminium and stainless steel, and FFKM sealing elements, the syringe adapter is compatible with almost all materials and allows for air bubble-free dispensing, even after several syringe barrel changes.
With a 1/8-inch external thread, the adapter is well suited for the eco-PEN, eco-DUO series 300, 330 and 450 and eco-DUOMIX450.
Self-sealing rotor/stator design

Stainless Steel Housing Kit
For applications which require the dispensing of aggressive materials such as solvents or plasticisers or abrasive compounds, a stainless steel housing kit is available. Offering improved resistance to fluxes and oxidants as well as organic and inorganic acids below pH4, the robust design of the steel kit extends the lifetime of the eco-PEN 300 and 450, whilst maintaining the accuracy and repeatability of the unit.
Hardwearing by design, the housing kit can withstand repeated cleaning making it suitable for applications carried out within a cleanroom environment.
Set-up and maintenance
Setting up your eco-PEN is fast and straightforward. preeflow have put together an easy to follow video which will guide you during your first set up.
For information on how to maintain and clean your eco-PEN watch preeflows video tutorial.
See the preeflow eco-PEN as part of a real application in these dispensing and robotics Case Studies:
|Automated dispensing helps security manufacturer increase throughput and quality
GJD Manufacturing switched to an automated method of dispensing silicone for sealing a plastic lens to aluminium housing. By doing this, they improved the throughput and quality of their white-light and infra-red LED illuminators for the security industry.
|Precision dispensing helps electrical manufacturer to reduce waste by improving quality and yield
By switching to an automated dispensing system, this electrical manufacturer reduced scrappage and therefore improved quality and yield of their product.
