Seals-Free Pumps May Reduce Maintenance Costs
Watson-Marlow’s heavy-duty Bredel SPX pump is suited for challenging environmental applications. The SPX is designed to handle a variety of harsh materials, including abrasive sludge. Advanced hose technology enables the SPX to pump grit-filled sludge for a long period of time.
Peristaltic hose pumps are designed to be nearly maintenance free without seals to replace, check valves that can clog, and rotors and stators to that can wear out. The highly abrasive nature of sludge does not affect pump life, according to Watson-Marlow. With its self-loading design, hose replacement is designed to be quick and easy.
