SPX Pump for harsh industrial applications

October 20, 2005
The heavy-duty SPX pump for challenging industrial applications reliably handles a variety of harsh materials, such as sludge and abrasive slurries. Advanced hose technology enables the SPX to pump corrosive chemicals 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 lime slurries does not affect pump life. With the 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 percent. Many models include integral digital drives and displays in washdown enclosures. These self-priming pumps accommodate flow rates from 0.1 microliter to 350 gpm, and are extremely durable by withstanding pressures up to 232 psi. 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 30-foot suction lift.
