The Bredel hose pump reliably handles a variety of harsh materials, including abrasive sewage and slurry, making it ideal for the feeding of primary or thickened sludge to digesters or filter pressers. Advanced hose technology enables the Bredel hose pump to handle grit-filled sludge dependably for extended periods 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 Bredel hose pump an enduring solution for tough environmental applications. The Bredel hose pump also eliminates many pieces of ancillary equipment such as run-dry protection and seal water flushing systems & in-line check vales and is backed by a full two-year warranty.
