|Handle nasty fluids up to 317 GPH|
|Bredel’s APEX optimized hose pumps dose, meter and transfer between 0.7 and 317 gph for tough industrial applications involving corrosive, viscous, shear-sensitive, gaseous, crystallizing fluids or fluids with a combination of these properties.Models are three pumps in one, with a single pump body adjustable for three hose sizes (10, 15 and 20 mm) when production volumes rise. They handle pressures up to 116 psi and the flow boosted by a new generation of long-lasing hoses that also support repeatable accuracy when dosing additives. The continuous pumps speed of up to 100 rpm provides a wide capacity range.The cast aluminum housing dissipates heat and maintenance requirements are light for extended up-time and process continuity. Bredel is a brand of the Watson-Marlow Pump Group with US operations in Wilmington, Mass.|
|Improve water flow|
|Neptune Chemical Pump Co.’s Series 7000 mechanically actuated metering pumps eliminate the use of contour plates on the liquid side of the diaphragm and improve flow in water and wastewater applications with a straight-through valve and head design. The North Wales, Pa. manufacturer pegs the maximum capacity of the pumps at up to 300 gph (1,135 L/h), 150 psi. and flow rates from .01 to 20 gph. They operate on a manual control that produces speed ranging from 15 to 300 strokes per minute. EZE-CLEAN valve cartridges can be removed without disturbing the piping. The pumps are manually adjusted from 10% to 100% of capacity via micrometer dial flow or controlled automatically by electric stroke positioners, or by motor speed controls. Capacity is to 80 gph (302 l/h) simplex and 160 gph (605 l/h) duplex at pressures up to 3,000 psi (210 kg/cm).|
|Handles harsh chemicals|
|Watson-Marlow’s 620 pumps for sodium hypochlorite combine power and control for wastewater applications. The off-gassing feature prevents vapour lock while maintaining +/- 0.1% accuracy in hypo metering, which contributes to lower chemical use. High flow rates at pumphead speeds don’t compromise tube life, which extends performance and delivers up to 50% more flow with a control ratio of million:1. The pump handles harsh chemicals in water and wastewater treatment, including sodium hypochlorite, ferric chloride, sodium bisulfate, aluminum, fluoride, carbon and lime slurries, polymers, aqueous ammonia, potassium permanganate and caustic slurries. There are no valves or seals to clog, so it requires minimal maintenance.Watson-Marlow Pump Group has US operations in Wilmington, Mass.|
|Eco-friendly power for waterjets|
|The 30-hp ECO-JET waterjet from Jet Edge Inc. delivers more eco-friendly pumping. It consumes up to 40% less electricity than a 50-hp pump thanks to its direct-drive design.|
The pump produces up to 1 gpm of 55KSI ultra-high pressure water for precision cutting, cleaning and surface preparation. Running on a 0.015-in. waterjet orifice, it powers most manufacturers’ cutting systems and tools.
Jet Edge is a pump manufacturer based in St. Michael, Minn.
