Hose Pumps Handle Corrosive Fluids

June 3, 2012
New line is suited for dosing, metering and transfer applications.
Watson-Marlow Bredel has launched the new Apex range of pumps for dosing, metering and transfer applications between 0.7 and 317 gallons per hour. With no wear components such as seals, valves, membranes, stators, rotors or glands, Apex hose pumps are designed to handle fluids that are corrosive, viscous, shear-sensitive, gaseous, or crystallizing.
Apex pumps feature a single pump body that is adjustable for three hose sizes (10, 15 and 20 mm) when production volumes rise. The new line offers high performance for pressures up to 116 psi, along with reliable and stable flow up to 317 gallons per hour. 
New hoses support repeatable accuracy when dosing additives, while continuous pump speeds up to 100 rpm provide a wide capacity range. Cast aluminum housing provides heat dissipation, direct coupled technology, and precision machined hosed elements. Should process requirements change, easy upgrades are possible without buying a new pump.
