Watson-Marlow Bredel, the leading manufacturer of peristaltic pumps, offers the heavy-duty SPX pump for challenging environmental applications. The SPX reliably handles a variety of harsh materials, including abrasive sludge.
Advanced hose technology enables the SPX to pump grit-filled sludge dependably for a long period of time. Peristaltic hose pumps are virtually maintenance-free, with no expensive seals to replace, no check valves to clog, and no rotors and stators to wear out. Unlike other pump types, the highly abrasive nature of sludge does not affect pump life. With its self-loading design, hose replacement is quick and easy. The combination of these features makes the SPX an enduring solution for tough environmental applications.
Every Watson-Marlow Bredel peristaltic pump is an inherent metering pump with repeatability at 99.5%. Many models include integral digital drives and displays in washdown enclosures. These self-priming pumps accommodate flow rates from litres to 80 cubic/metres hour, and are extremely durable, withstanding pressures up to 16 bar. There are no internal universal joints, valves, dead corners, or glands to impede flow, and these pumps are reversible for back flushing lines. They can also run dry indefinitely without damage and provide up to a 9m suction lift.
