Watson-Marlow’s Bredel, Qdos pumps in spotlight at WEFTEC

news item image
Watson-Marlow Fluid Technology Group (WMFTG) will showcase its Bredel line of heavy-duty sludge pumps, as well as its Qdos range of peristaltic chemical metering pumps, at the upcoming WEFTEC Conference, taking place in Chicago, US from 23-25 September.

The Bredel heavy-duty sludge pumps are ideal for centrifuge and belt press feed. They feature just one wearing part – the hose – so there are no rotors, stators, or lobes to replace and no mechanical seals or packing to leak. Bredel pumps are able to handle flows up to 475 gallons per minute, with suction lift to 30 feet, and they are dry running and reversible.

The company’s Qdos range of chemical metering pumps are ideal for disinfection, pH adjustment, and flocculation of drinking water, wastewater and industrial process water. With accurate linear flow rates from 0.001-31.7 gallons per hour at 100 psi, Qdos pumps are designed to reduce chemical metering costs compared to conventional solenoid or stepper-driven diaphragm metering pumps.

Neither pump range requires high-cost ancillaries, such as degassing valves or back pressure valves to operate, which keeps the total cost of ownership low. Maintenance intervals for both the Bredel and Qdos range are also longer than conventional pumps.

The two pump ranges will be on display at WMFTG’s booth at the WEFTEC exhibition, #2638.
