A110 Archimede™ Light - Low Volume Sequential Tinting

A110 Archimede™ Light – Sequential


A110 Archimede™ Light – Low Volume Sequential Colorant Dispenser

The A110 Archimede™ 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 A110 Archimede™ 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 A110 Archimede™ 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 A110 Archimede™ 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!

  • Unmatched durability and low maintenance costs
  • Simple to repair – a complete dispense circuit can be replaced in less than 15 minutes without special tools or training
  • Drift free calibration – No need for yearly calibrations
  • Simple to use
  • Unbeatable quality/price ratio
  • Much improved durability and pump life compared to gear drive units
  • Sequential dispense – one channel (colorant) – max dispense rate of up to 10 ounces per minute!


  • Eliminates high maintenance and service costs
  • Simplifies the dispensing of difficult products
  • Colorant drying in the nozzles will be a thing of the past
  • No remodeling required as this unit is designed to fit in the same footprint as a manual dispenser
