Verderflex expands hose pump range with Dura 55
Following the release of its Dura 45 hose pump, Verderflex has expanded the line with the Verderflex Dura 55, designed to deliver over 20% more flow.
The addition of the Verderflex Dura 55 expands the Dura range's flow rates from <1 l/hr to 15.3 m³/hr at pressures up to 16 bar.
Designed to meet growing market demands for a pump that can reduce life cycle costs, maximise plant uptime and incorporate special design features for arduous heavy duty applications, the Verderflex Dura 55 can be used in a variety of applications, including; biogas production, brewing, fly ash recirculation, chemical manufacturing, industrial processing, mining and water treatment.
The hose pump aims to increase hose life by decreasing the number of revolutions to pump a given volume for longer hose life and expanded maintenance intervals.
Also featured is a unique, patent pending port flange that totally encloses the hose. This flange design includes an quarter turn lock system, halving hose change times to maximise plant uptime. Normally, supplied in 316 stainless steel, this flange design also has optional PP & PVDF inserts for aggressive chemical duty options.
Stalled rotor protection technology, including visible slippage indicators, guards against blockages and chokes and eliminates potential rotor, rotor shoe or gearbox damage when the pumped liquid settles out or a line chokes, reducing both maintenance costs and production downtime. This key design feature enhances the Verderflex Dura 55's suitability for pumping sludge, slurries and all kinds of vicious and waste liquids.
Reinforcing the heavy duty design is the pump's casing and rotor, made from high tensile strength SG iron. The Verderflex Dura 55 pump's rotor shoes are fully supported, eliminating potential stress weak points.
