Verderflex supplies peristaltic pumps to Smart Storm

Wastewater instrumentation manufacturer Verderflex has supplied its peristaltic pumps to Halifax-based water and wastewater firm Smart Storm.

Smart Storm will use Verderflex's R3DC OEM peristaltic pumps as part of the wastewater sampler systems it manufactures. In a statement, Verderflex said its product will help Smart Storm to measure the volume and toxicity of wastewater effluent.

In 2013, Smart Storm embarked on a design exercise to replace their existing waste water sampler with a new state-of-the- art product that would meet the harsh demands of industrial wastewater sampling.

The innovation, known as the Hydrocell sampler, included the Universal Smart Instrument (USI) as its instrument controller.

"To ensure that the new product exceeded the specification of the existing product and that of our competitors we also required the pump to perform to a higher standard than that of the old sampler pump," said Smart Storm's managing director, John Duffy.

Speaking about the product, Verderflex's sales engineer, Neil Thomas said: "Our R3DC pump is ideal for this type of demanding application."

"It features a robust design with thick-wall tubing, and in addition to its high lift capability and a DC motor which can accommodate speed and flow-rate variations, it can handle flow rates up to 3.4 l/min."
