English translation:dosing or metering
Explanation:
In modern industries is it very common to find dosing or metering pumps to control the accurate addition of certain components at a certain stage of a production process. For instance, in the sugar industry (where I have worked for nearly 30 years) we use milk of lime metering pumps to control de amount of milk of lime we add to cane juice to control its pH. Hope this helps. Good luck!
