HERO A310 Series Waterbased Automatic Sequential Dispenser


A310 Series – Low Volume Sequential Colorant Dispenser

Manufacturer: HERO
Part #: A310-12E-V, A310-12E-HB1-V 

Description: The Entry-Level Automatic Dispenser for Low - Volume Tinting.
  • 12 Canisters, 2.6 Qts. Canister Capacity. (16 and 24 canister units available by custom order)
  • Water-based or universal colorants (non-solvent).

Models Available:

  • Standard flow rate: 12.5 oz /min max.
  • Hybrid* flow rate: (8 Standard and 4 High Flow Pumps) - Max flow rate: 20 oz /min

*The A310 Hybrid combines HERO’s standard flow pumps with high flow pumps for the most used colorants. This hybrid system yields a maximum available flow rate of 20 oz per minute.

The A310 Series incorporates HERO’s patented Progressive Cavity Pump (PCP) dispensing technology. This innovative and revolutionary pump design allows HERO to offer the first truly low maintenance automatic colorant dispenser. In fact, we believe it offers the lowest cost of ownership available in the market today. The A310 Series is so simple to repair that an entire dispense circuit can be replaced without tools or special training in less than 15 minutes. In addition, the A310 Series further reduces yearly maintenance costs as it does not suffer calibration drift like other competing technologies.

Thanks to this technology’s ability to reverse the flow of colorant through the pump, HERO has also solved the problem of colorant drying in the nozzle. This feature is referred to as pull back. At the end of each dispense, the pump reverses rotation “pulling” back the colorant inside the nozzles. This minimizes contact of colorant with air.

The A310 Series dispenses each colorant sequentially and offers precision unmatched by its rivals. On average dispenses, the accuracy is within +/-1%. Yes, this unit is so precise it can be used to tint sample color testers!
