Watson-Marlow Fluid Technology Group (WMFTG) has passed a notable business milestone by selling the 150,000th Bredel peristaltic hose pump to an industry customer in Mexico.
The past decade has seen a huge increase in the uptake of Bredel hose pumps in sectors such as construction, where they meet strict environmental regulations in very tough working conditions.
It has been over half a century since Bredel developed the peristaltic hose pump for industrial use.
Today, these high-performance units transfer and dose a host of aggressive, viscous and abrasive fluids and solids in sectors that include brewing, water treatment, construction, chemical and mining.
The sale of the 150,000th pump to a customer in Mexico was part of a consignment shipped from the Bredel manufacturing plant in Delden, Netherlands, that constituted 16 pumps across eight different models. The combined flow of these pumps is circa 1,560 l/min.
Bredel pumps continue to evolve, with many notable achievements arriving in the past 10 years. A good example is the APEX range, which was introduced in 2012 and expanded in 2015.
APEX pumps are designed to offer a highly competitive price/performance ratio. The range offers flow rates up to 6,200 l/h and discharge pressure to 8 bar, while the wider Bredel hose pump range includes units that provide flow up to 108,000 l/h and pressure to 16 bar.
WMFTG offers direct sales of Bredel pumps in 43 countries with Finland, Norway, the Netherlands, Belgium, Germany, Spain, Portugal and the Czech Republic (including Slovakia) joining the list in 2021.
